"What Are Your Intentions in this New Year?" Marielle Taylor, RScP, Sunday, January 8, 2017, 7 pm

What Do You Choose in the New Year?

One of our familiar traditions is to reflect upon our lives as the New Year begins. At the Sunday evening service on January 8, Practitioner Marielle Taylor gives us opportunities to explore our intentions. How are intentions different than goals? Come to the service to learn more.

As Marielle describes it, "there will be opportunities to explore and to activate our intentions".  Those who attend may experience the power of creating, claiming and setting into motion their New Year's intentions, to have those intentions feel vibrant and alive.

Our spiritual community gathers at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing. All are welcome as we learn and grow together.

"A Rabbi and a Minister Talk about Jesus" Sunday, December 18, 2016, 7 pm

Rev. Michael Vosler, United Church of Christ, semi-retired

Rabbi Mordecai Miller, Congregation Beth Ami, Santa Rosa

There are so many ways to think about Jesus.  At this Sunday evening's service, Rev. Tara facilitates a conversation with two interfaith colleagues, Rev. Michael Vosler and Rabbi Mordecai Miller.  Each will talk about his personal understanding of Jesus.  This deep and wide-ranging conversation  invites us to reflect on our own view of the man that Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind, described as a master teacher and way-shower.

The evening service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing, of the Center for Spiritual Living.  All are welcome to attend.

"A Prayer for Peace" Rev. Tara Steele, Wednesday, December 14, 2016, 7 pm

"A Treatment for Peace of Mind"  Science of Mind, 264:3 - 265:2

I am excited to bring Ernest Holmes' teaching on peace and peace of mind to tomorrow's Wednesday evening service.  Many have been stirred up in the aftermath of the election, with excitement, with fear, with disbelief -- such a range of emotions.  How do we achieve peace of mind, grounding in our practice in this time?

Whatever our emotions in this moment, coming to center, to the still sanctuary within, is important. Reaction is not as powerful as love-centered response.  From that peaceful place of connection with Spirit, recognition that the Divine is expressing everywhere, so much more is possible.

Join us at this Wednesday evening service where we come together as spiritual community. Following tomorrow's service, there is food and fellowship.  Rumor has it there will be quiche.  The service begins at 7 pm, all are welcome.
