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 Use the Power Greater than You Are”

There is an irresistible urge back of everything to create, to express life.  Any time any of us have that passion to create something or to express in a bigger way, there is a Power motivating us.  How do we use this Power?  How do we give ourselves access to It All?  Join Rev. Martha on Sunday as we discover the way.

The Spirit of Life Some Call God is Everywhere

Marilyn O’Leary, RScP

Marilyn Oleary, RScP

As I look out to the beautiful mesa behind my home, I am touched by the softness snow brings to this parched land. It reminds me that the spirit of life some call God is everywhere. When we feel we most need it, if we ask and believe, we will receive a reminder of God’s beneficence. Even in the face of loss, pain, and longing, I remember that the spirit of life within me and without me connects me to every living person and thing in the world, that I am not alone, and that pain and longing can be melted away with love of self and love of others. The innermost God reaches out to the outermost God and includes all in love. No one is left out.

In this beautiful season I affirm for each person who reads these words love and fulfillment, joy and peace, laughter and happiness, but above all a deep knowing that we are surrounded by love and if we open to it, and if we give it to others, it is ours. This season of light, gifts, and celebration points out the abundance of the universe in which we live, which I accept with gratitude.

I give thanks to the divine, to Life, to acceptance of the way things are, knowing that what I affirm in belief I will experience in my life. I let my prayers go, knowing that they already are answered.

And so it is.

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…
