“Life is Creative”
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
Our western spiritual thought presupposes that we are created as individuals and we are here to have our individual experiences. As individuals imbued with the energy of the Creator, we each have the ability to create our lives in a way that interest us. However, what happens when we aren’t interested in what we are creating any longer? How do we shift the tide? Join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we shimmy, shift, and create!

“The Universe Never Plays Favorites “
Ernest Holmes, Our Founder
We are so used to the thought that if we mix certain colors we get certain other colors, that we do not realize we are dealing with a principle. We know that whoever blends these particular colors will get the same result, but we do not know why; THE WISEST MAN LIVING DOES NOT KNOW WHY! We do not have to stretch our credulity any more in metaphysics.
We think of metaphysics, perhaps, as something that only the most profound thinkers have known about, but we should remember that we also are thinkers. The profound thought of all ages has stood in awe of Life itself, realizing that here is a power and potentiality, the highest possibilities of which the human intellect cannot fathom.
Universal principles are never respecters of persons; the Universe has no favorites. Therefore, it is written: “And let him that is a thirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Rev. 22:17)
Nothing Supernatural about the Study of Life
Let us then approach the Science of Mind—the Science of Spiritual Psychology—with awe, but not with fear; with truly a humble thought, but not with a sense that we are unworthy. Let us approach it normally, happily, willing to accept, glad to experiment, hoping and believing that as the result of our efforts we shall each derive a great good—a sound understanding of the natural laws of Life, as they apply to the individual and his relationship to the whole universal scheme of things.
This is the simple meaning of true metaphysical teaching, the study of Life and the nature of the Law, governed and directed by thought; always conscious that we live in a spiritual Universe; that God is in, through, around and for us. There is nothing supernatural about the study of Life from the metaphysical viewpoint. That which today seems to us supernatural, after it is thoroughly understood, will be found spontaneously natural. We all know that many have been healed of physical disease through prayer. Let us analyze this. Why are some healed through prayer while others are not? Can we believe that there is a God who picks out some man and says, “I will honor your prayer, but I do not think so much of Mr. So and So”? It is superstitious to believe that God will answer the prayer of one above another. Jesus said that God “maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matt. 5:45)

What We Teach
We teach the Science of Mind, which is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the idea that we live in a Spiritual Universe; that God or Spirit is in, through, around us; and that this Presence is a loving source of all Good.

VISION Connecting Community Through Spirit!
MISSION We recognize that an inherent desire in every individual is to realize the person God intended us to be. As we realize our true God selves, the greatest gift we can give another is to support him or her in becoming that God person too.
