Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
“Say My Name, A Day of Atonement”
The holiest Jewish holiday is celebrated this weekend, Yom Kippur. Metaphysically, the act of atonement extends beyond human relations to the relationship with God. When we make amends with the highest and the innermost Divinity, we are setting the world back in balance. Join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we explore atonement and its meaning for us.

Drink the Wild Air
Liza Kerr, RScP
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea,
Drink the wild air’s salubrity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I bought a friend a card the other day and it had a quote from Emerson on it – the quote was “Live in the Sunshine, Swim in the Sea, and Drink the Wild Air.” Being me, I had to look up the quote. It came from a poem called Merlin’s Song, by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The actual quote is “Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air’s salubrity.” I had to look up salubrity – it means conducive to health. Indeed, that wild air I so cherish is conducive to health. This treatment is for all people who want to or need to drink that wild air!
Everywhere I look I see God. God is the very air that I breathe, the air that blows and swirls around me. The air that sustains me and supplies oxygen to my blood that allows me to live and breathe and to exist. The blood that pumps to my brain that allows me to experience the Love that is God, the Goodness, Peace and Serenity that are God are exist in me for there is no separation between me and God – God as me, is me, through me, me as God – all one and the same. Just as this is true for me it is true for each of you – for we are all one with God. Perfect God, Perfect Being, Perfect Man – each of us perfection personified; each of us an individualized personification of God as the one source.
I speak my Word and my Word is Law that as I drink the wild air’s salubrity deep into my lungs I recognize that profound connection that is God. I feel this connection and it grounds me and lifts me. It energizes me and gives me life as I have come to recognize it. Life as it exists for me right here and right now; life that is conducive to perfect health, perfect happiness, perfect love; life that is roaring through my veins – wildly coursing through my system. I recognize this gift of life and I rejoice that I am partaking of it.
Thank you God in me, thank you for this precious gift of life. Thank you for this wonderful journey that I have been on that allows me to drink the wild air.
I release my Word to the Law of Mind, knowing that it cannot come back to me void, knowing that this manifestation has already occurred, and I anchor it in place by saying – 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 Through 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…
