9 AM and 11 AM
“Perceptive Awareness and Thanksgiving!”
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
Love is here, Love responds, and it is the urge of the Divine to express. Each of us is the result of Love’s call to itself and it is in this love that gratitude appears. Gratitude is the basis for the appreciation of our lives and the door that opens to more potential. Gratitude is peace, love, and happiness all rolled into one grand thought. Thank you! Please join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we go beyond appearances into gratitude.

“Behind Everything Material, Stands the Spiritual”
Ernest Holmes, Our Founder
The Pearl of Great Price (Matt. 13:45, 46)
The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a pearl of great price, for which a man will sell all that he has, that he may possess it. This, perhaps, best explains the way of the illumined. To them, the kingdom of heaven has meant everything, and has been above all else. We find them going away by themselves that they may more completely enjoy this inner realization of their relationship to the Whole. A divine companionship has ever attended such, on the pathway of human experience. The description of the things they have seen, felt and heard, constitutes some of the most valuable lessons the world has ever learned.
The only news we have of Heaven has come through the consciousness of men, and to those few who have penetrated the veil of illusion and entered the realms of deeper reality, we owe a debt that cannot be paid in any other terms than those of appreciation and thanksgiving.
That the illumined have had experiences which the average man cannot conceive of, is certain; and that anyone who wills to know Truth may know it, is evident to all who make the attempt. But let us not forget that spiritual experiences are normal, natural and rational. The illumined have always had rational intellects and well-balanced mentalities. No experience is salutary, unless it be gained while in a normal state of mind. Too great a warning cannot be given against any attempt to break through the veil, when in any other but a perfectly normal mental state.
Jesus lived in the spiritual world just as normally as we live in the material, and just as consciously. And what is the spiritual world? And where is it? It is right here, could we but see it. Behind everything material, stands the spiritual, supporting it, and without which there could be no material.
