“Got Compassion?”

“The secret of spiritual power lies in a consciousness of one's union with the
Whole, and the availability of Good. God is accessible to all people."

~ Ernest Holmes - Science of Mind, page 151.2 

What does it mean to be truly compassionate? When are we less compassionate with ourselves or others? When do we see God in others and ourselves, or not? Together we will explore what blocks compassion and our understanding of Goodness. We will also practice ways to experience more compassion and Goodness in our lives.

The conversation begins at 7 pm in Room 11, North Wing. All are welcome.

“Being Cared For?”
THIS SUNDAY, MAY 12, 7 PM



“Compassion is saying, how may I serve you?" ~ Rev. Michael Beckwith 

Is there anyone who doesn't love the feeling of being cared for, being cared about, having our needs met in a loving and generous way? I don't think there is anyone who doesn't want to be met in this way. It is certainly up to each one of us to open ourselves to receive these gifts. 

There are also a myriad of ways in which we respond to someone who may need our assistance from time to time. What is your response? What are these options? May we find our compassion, caring and open hearts in time of any need that presents itself.

Please note that Tom McCurry was called out of town unexpectedly and will not be present.

The conversation begins at 7 pm in Room 11, North Wing. All are welcome.

“Where Do I Belong?”

“You have an amazing capacity to exclude yourself" ~ Lisa Beytia 

The erroneous belief that seems to show up from time to time is the idea that there are certain people, places and things where I assume I don’t belong, I am not welcome, I don’t fit in, I have been excluded. Have you ever experienced this? If so, did you feel a sense of being alone, feeling shut out, barred out? 

It has become increasingly important for me to heal this belief and assume my place in this world. I invite you to come and join in this conversation. Are you ready to own your place here, to include yourself in this Universe? Let’s do it together.

The conversation begins at 7 pm in Room 11, North Wing. All are welcome.

SUNDAY EVENING EXPLORATION

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” ~ Matthew 7:7 

Oprah Winfrey opens her Super Soul Sunday show with questions and comments, one being that “we are all looking for the same thing.” Is that true? What are you seeking? Has that search been or is it being satisfied in you? Are you seeking the same things you did when you were younger? If not, what has changed?

Join me in this quest as we ask these and many more questions that may arise as we engage in this question of what we are seeking and the possibility of attaining that which we long for.

We are blessed to have my blessed Tom McCurry to bless us all. The conversation begins at 7 pm in Room 11, North Wing. All are welcome.

"There is no ritual you must perform to become spiritual.  There is no prescribed way you must behave to be spiritual.  You are spiritual.  You are a being of Spirit.  It is your essence, your greatest reality."  ~ John-Roger

I really love this question and am curious as to your response to it as well. Do I need to be aware of my alignment with the truth or is it an act of faith to remind myself that no matter how many times I stray into separation, i am always One with the Infinite. 

What are your beliefs in terms of alignment with the Truth. I am looking forward to having this conversation with all of you. Let us take this time to listen and learn from ourselves and each other.

Sunday Evening Exploration with Practitioner Maggie Cole, "The Thing Itself: Design and Define Your God", with Music by Tom McCurry, 7 pm, North Wing



"You are to realize that the Power within you is a Divine Authority. It is a dispenser of the Divine Gifts. It is a giver of life, of joy. It proclaims the Kingdom of Heaven, the harmony of the soul, and the unity of all being." ~Ernest Holmes 


The Thing Itself, as Ernest Holmes refers to God, the Divine and all the other names that have been bestowed on the Infinite. I came to embrace “The Thing Itself” as it assisted me in laying down the idea that I had grown up with, that God was a man in the sky. Whatever word is used to describe it, it is probably different for each of us.

Tonight we have the opportunity to define our own God, to give It the identity that we want to assign to It. What would you like your God to look like, feel like, be like? In what ways would It serve you? It’s a fascinating exercise, creating our own personal God.

Our beloved Tom McCurry joins us to give his gift of music and the beauty of his presence. The conversation begins at 7 pm in the North Wing. All are welcome.
