The Secret Spiritual Power

The holy of Holies and sacred of Sacreds lives in each of us.  It is a power for good and we can use it, too.  Each of us knows how to use it, too.  The secret is to uncover our own ability.  Join Rev. Martha at 11:00 a.m. as we read from Chapter 8 of this quarter’s book, Know Yourself! You are More than You Think

A Prayer For Our Country

Alicia Hanlen, RScP

Today let us recognize that we are all one in Spirit, in Life. We breathe the same air, are warmed by the same sun, and live on the same planet. Indeed, we are all made of the same divine substance. And in particular we recognize that we, as Americans, are joined together as part of the same “tribe”, if you will, ultimately sharing the same creed of “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”.

So, from this space of recognition of how we are ultimately the same, let us pledge together to seek a resolution to any challenges that our nation faces at this time in our history. Let us, each in our own heart, mind and soul, seek to find that space for an opening, a path to reconciliation. I pray and know that each of us can find that space, that opening, to allow in the healing light of Spirit – who knows the path, even though we may not see it. I pray and know that each of us individually can and do indeed allow that softening of our position, whatever it may be, to see that there can indeed be a path to allow this great nation to move forward, to be the true inspiration and leader I know it can once again be. As we each find that movement in our own consciousness and thought, as we look to each other as brothers and sisters, and not enemies or those on “the other side”, we can and do set aside our differences and instead find our common ground. I pray and know this for our President, our Senators, and all of the members of our Congress. To find a path, to seek an opening, to allow for those resolutions which are for the highest and best for each and every person in America, and indeed and ultimately, on our planet. To know and see that as we recognize our oneness as Americans, we then take the next step as see and recognize our oneness as human beings on this glorious planet.

I am grateful for the opportunity to see from a new perspective, to move away from chaos and rigidity, and instead to see and know the inherent good in each and every person and situation. Thank you, dear Spirit, for allowing this truth to be revealed. Thank you, dear Life, for seeing and expressing our higher reality – our connection – now and always and forever – to you. And so I just let these words, thoughts and feelings be placed into the immutable Law of Mind, knowing that it is done, – here, now and always.

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…
