This Sunday, November 10th, 2013
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
Rev. Martha surveyed the congregation to find out what topics they wanted to hear about on Sunday morning. Congregants sent in over 80 suggestions. All of the talks this fall are directly taken from the survey and dedicated to the people who come to the Sunday Service. To all of the congregants and visitors, thank you for creating a world-class spiritual community with your presence, your talent, and your treasure. You have already changed the world.
“How to Conquer a Guilt Complex“
The human mind is a strange mixture of joy and morbidity. Most of us have had so many negative and unhappy experiences that it seems almost too good to be true that this can change; that our lives can be different. Join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we talk about how we learn to find happiness in our everyday experiences.

The Goodness of God Caresses Me
Nancy Bowers, RScP
Prayer of Remembrance
God rocks. It is the Eternal Yes – the Life-force, the power behind and within everything. It is the Breath of Life. The Boldness of Being. It is the Alpha and the Omega. It is Fearless, yet Easy, knowing no order of difficulty. It is the Maker of Miracles. The Power that easily and effortless creates.
And this Power, this Goodness is my life-force. I live and move and have my being in It, for I cannot be separate from It. Just as a wave cannot be apart from the ocean, I cannot be apart from God, for I am part of this Life, part of this Breath of God. I speak my word and God says “Yes.” I set an intention and God is within that intention. And recognizing this, I remember that the nature of God is, Love, Peace, Joy, Prosperity, and all Goodness and these gifts of God are mine. They wait from me, waiting for me to recognize them and embrace them as I am embraced by God. The gifts of Heaven are here. God lavishes them on me, with a Love so deep, so generous, that I can barely drink it all in. But I do. I open now to that Goodness. I open now to that Love. I claim all this Goodness as my own. I drink it in. I allow it to caress me.
And so now, in this moment, I remember who I really am. I am a child of God. I am the anointed one, just as all my brothers and sisters are the children of God; the anointed ones, the blessed. I remember this not only for myself but for everyone, all of God’s children, for we are all part of this Sacred Breath, this dance of Life. And so I always choose love. I always choose peace. I remember who I am and I remember who everyone is. I see God everywhere I go. You are the Face of God and I gaze upon that face with love. I am the face of God and when I gaze in the mirror, I remember who I am – a teacher of God.
And I give thanks for this remembrance. I give thanks to be in a Spiritual Community that reminds me of who I am and what I can to do. I give thanks that I am never alone. I know that God is with me always. I know God is my breath, and for that remembrance, I am so very grateful.
I release this prayer of remembrance into the Law, knowing it was always so and ever will be. And So It Is! Amen!

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…
