I Am So Glad

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

Life is.  It is All There Is.  It is equally present everywhere, knowing Itself through the absolute marvel of every creature alive in every dimension.  It is the birth of every babe and the Holy Spirit that animates our bodies.  It contemplates Itself and, in so doing, It creates. It contemplated me in this physical plane and it contemplated every person everywhere.  It just wanted to know what it was like to live like us. 

Each of us is Life’s contemplation and, in this contemplation, we are each imbued with our own happiness, joy, love, grace, goodness, divine unfoldment, and good.  We each come equipped to find that spirit that is lives in each of us and that motivates us more beautifully and healthily each time we exercise our own beautiful spirit.  I am so glad. 

In this revelation of Spirit, I affirm and declare the happiest holidays ever.  I affirm and declare that the love of God is utmost in our hearts and it spreads to everyone everywhere during the seasons of light.  As the light returns to the planet, as the Christ is born in us, and as the light of these holidays envelop each of us, the light shines so brightly that it washes away any sadness, angst, and feelings of unlove.  The light illuminates our natural goodness and each of us is left in the arms of unconditional love.  I am so glad.

It is in this gladness that I give thanks; that I live and know that all I give and receive is part of the great give and take of life.  I am so grateful for the people of the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living and for the community we are creating.  I am so glad we found each other and that so many more are finding us everyday.  I am so glad.  And so I release my word knowing that this prayer is done. 

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.

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.

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…
