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. 

Manifesting Love At Work

Some of us are looking for love in all the wrong places.  One of the places we often seek the most love is at work.  What happens when the boss or the client doesn’t like our work?  Do we then feel underappreciated, angry, resentful?  Let’s get back to our real job – living in joy, peace, and happiness!  Join Rev. Martha on Sunday for a talk on the important topic of work!

Wherever the Universe makes a demand upon Itself, out of that very demand is created its fulfillment — Ernest Holmes[break][break]
I throw my imagination to the farthest heights and the inmost depths, and in so doing I discover the High Cause of renewal, the Answer to every question, the Source of all healing.  Who is it that suffers the human condition?  It is not the I AM.  When I am at one with this Truth, I see no thing wrong, nothing has power to hurt, and everywhere is miraculous beauty and unlimited opportunity,

Today I take hold of the words of Emma Curtis Hopkins, “no insistence that I am strong and every whit whole can be found exhibiting strength and wholeness if the vision is still upon the body’s misery claims.”  I apply her word to myself as well as to the collective.  I apply her word wherever there is past precedence, appearances of pain or decay, perception of injury, seeming discord, loss, burden, injustice, or the media’s news of the day.  I surrender such appearances and choose Light and the Way of Understanding, Joy and Ease.  Returning to First Cause, I take back the power I may have given to obstacles, opposition, people, emotional responses or fear.  I claim perfect health, perfect peace, and perfect accomplishment of divine will.

I make these demands upon myself:

  • to allow Divine Power to operate freely through me, clearing the way to a perfect manifestation of spiritual truth through my body and my environments;
  • to become willing to be fearless, free, and fulfilled, and to be undeterred by the pangs of unformulation;
  • to participate fully in a mutual life, in which I recognize myself, others and all nature as an inseparable and invaluable part of the whole.
In so doing, I reap the harvest of good for myself and others.  Every task or situation before me is a privilege and bears a gift, for which I am grateful.  Every person in my life is a divine messenger, even if in the rough.

I am grateful for Divine Power, which works through all who are willing, asserting Its health and Its peace.  I’m grateful that the word of Truth now vibrates through all of Life and is inevitably unfolding to the glory of God.  Believing and accepting, I release into the field of Law.  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…
