This Sunday, December 23rd, 2012
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
“Essentially Holy: What I Believe”
The holidays surrounding the return of light are a time of reflection. The reflection happens whether we like what we’re seeing or not. Sometimes we see peace, we call it good and are grateful. Other times we only see how unholy-like we feel in the midst of all the bustle and we call it stress and are not grateful. Whatever we are seeing, we are contemplating. It’s that time of year. Come and celebrate with Rev. Martha and the Rio Grande Community. We call it Good.

Spirit is Love
By Kathy Mathiason, RScP
Today begins the Three Days of Love, A Global Celebration of Love and Kindness; sponsored by the Shift Network. All are invited to join this “love movement” by personally committing to sharing words and actions of love for three days, from December 20-22.
Imagine what the power of these acts of love and kindness will have on people around the world as the global nervous system is infused with a sense of oneness, connectivity, gratitude and friendship. For three days, I encourage you to join with others around the world in the amazing acts of friendship, random gifts, and hugs to/from strangers – all so that we can remember ourselves as one human family!
God is Love, that Unconditional Love that unifies all life together; the Power back of all things seen and unseen. This unconditional Love which is the center of everything is the central core of my being. The power that governs all that I think and do. This Love empowers me to live my life in gratitude, knowing that I am part of the greater whole of humanity.
I know that being conscious of this Love in my life allows me to live in peace and harmony, accepting myself and everyone on this planet completely and unconditionally as divine aspects of the One True Spirit. I see life through the eyes of Love and It is a reflection of who I am. Love is Spirit expressing Itself through every person I meet and every experience I have in my life. I know and declare Love is the way in which I live my life. This is the purpose of my being, this is the way I express God through me, as me. Love fills me, supports me, and gives my life purpose. I live in joy when I think and express only Love and Peace for my fellow human beings on Earth, our shared physical home provided by that Loving Spirit, I call God.
So, I am grateful that this Love is part of my life that I can experience, share and embrace in both my human and spiritual being. I never “run out of” or “am short supply of” It in my life. The more I give, the more I have to continue giving. This is truly a gift for the giver as well as the receiver. So, I say “Thank You, God for this gift and all my opportunities in life I have in order to share with my fellow man.
And So It Is!

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…
