Our Global Vision For Centers For Spiritual Living

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

“Gratitude and Spiritual Growth”

Our Higher Self is constantly calling us, pushing us forward. Inertia may delay us but this internal impulse is always there. It’s what keeps us evolving sometimes in spite of ourselves. Join us on Sunday when we celebrate World Gratitude Day and the higher passion to which we’ve been called!

On this date, eleven years ago America came under attack.  More than three thousand (3,000) lives were taken and the destruction resulted in debt totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars.  Despite the loss of life and the costs of the destruction, God was there, simply because God is Omnipresent; and although many lives were lost, many more were saved.  Even acts, of what expresses itself as hate and destruction, the Presence of God is always there.  This Spiritual Mind Treatment is for the healing, in Consciousness, of the Nation.

God is the Divine Presence which pervades all space.  God is Universal, Unconditional Love; Joy; Peace; the One an only Spirit.  This God of ALL Life is everywhere present, all knowing, is all power and is the One Self-Existing, Self-Knowing Cause.

This One Presence, One Spirit and One Power, is individualized as Its Creation; and that includes me as well as each person reading this prayer at this very moment.  This Presence, and this Spirit, and this Power live in, through and around each of us.  No matter where each of us is, even in the midst of what is appearing as something less than Love, even then, God is there.

By evoking/invoking the Presence of God, I speak my word on this day of remembrance, and what is often thought of with sadness in the minds of many, I declare it a day of Joy, and Peace and Love!  This is a day that God has made, so let each of us be glad and seek to see the joy in it.  As each of us turn our attention to the indwelling Spirit of God within, know that this Spirit lives in every situation, in its totality.  God is not diminished in tragedy.  God cannot be parsed.  There is no God that exists “over here,” but not “over there.”  Wherever we are the entirety of God is there, and ALL is well!

I give thanks and express my unfailing gratitude for the awareness that Joy pervades all space and time.  I know that these words, spoken in Truth, have set the Immutable Law of God into motion.

And so, I release this prayer to the Law of Mind in Action; realizing that my word, given to me from the Divine, Indwelling Spirit within, cannot return to me void, but must, in fact accomplish where unto it is directed.  I allow it to be and declare it so!

And so it is.

What We Believe

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.

Connecting community to Spirit!

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. 

Most important, every man, woman and child who lives in the Universe is significant to the Creator. Our doors will forever be open to all…
