Dear Friends,

This Sunday, we continue with our series on "The Power of Decision" with a talk on Happiness. Would you like to be happier?  Or do you still wonder if you deserve happiness?  It's time to make a decision to accept your Good!

We start at 10, but Early Birds can enjoy Rev. Ahmondra's guided meditation at 9:30.  Then at 11:20, the Power of Eight Class with Rev. Lori continues.  (Note - If you are attending the class but haven't paid yet, the cost is $100 and 100% of your payment goes to our Gratitude Well project to bring safe water to a village in India.)

Here are some pictures from last Sunday. The video is now up on Facebook & YouTube... 


Looking forward to seeing you soon...

This Week's Meditation Suggestion: "Contemplating Stardust"
from Rev. Maurene Bishop

Here is one of my favorite quotes by our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes to meditate on: 

"I am guided by the same intelligence and inspired by the same imagination which scatters the moonbeams across the waves and holds the force of nature in its grasp."

Raymond Charles Barker used the phrase "LUMINOSITY OF GOD" to describe the feeling of awe and unity with Spirit.  The recent pictures from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is an example of this Luminosity.  The Telescope has delivered the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe so far.

Light from these galaxies took billions of years to reach us.  We are looking back in time to within a billion years after the Big Bang when viewing the youngest galaxies in this field.

The red Webb's image below offers a kaleidoscope of colors and highlights where the "dust" is - a major ingredient for star formation, and ultimately for the formation of life itself.  Blue galaxies contain strars, but very little dust.  The red objects in this field are enshrouded in thick layers of dust.  Green galaxies are populated with hydrocarbons and other chemical compounds.  

Let us give thanks for the magnificent, 
luminous Universe in which we live and have our being! 


"I have a right to be happy.  If other people can be happy, then I can be happy.  I have the same mind and emotions that they do.  I now demand that my subconscious use all of its intelligence to make me happy."    
Raymond Charles Barker

Just a reminder - Class starts at 11:20 AM, Please bring a sandwich or something to tide you over until about 1:00.

My. Divine Inheritance:
By Practitioner Bené Raphael
Ernest Holmes teaches us to proclaim our divine inheritance each day to live a more abundant and fulfilled life.  As we acknowledge the richness, strength, wisdom and goodness of God each day, we move with God in action.  With this daily practice we become more open and receptive to receive all that God intends in us.
