Share the Love, Share the Light, Share the Wealtth
Loving greetings and welcome to one of my favorite months of the year and its theme, “Share the Love, Share the Light, Share the Wealth.” It’s Friendship Month, and what a joy it is to gather with a community of spiritual friends who inspire, encourage and support one another on the path. The Buddha considered the sangha—the Sanskrit word for spiritual community—to be one of the Three Jewels of spiritual practice. How blessed we are to gather together each week to pray, learn, and celebrate. May this blessing fill your hearts as deeply as it does my own. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for the gift of your presence, your consciousness and your divine friendship

Sunday Topics: 11:00 AM
October 01 Growing Holy Relationships, Part I – Rev. Pam
“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” These heart-touching words from St. Thomas Aquinas remind us not to take for granted those in our lives whom we are blessed to call “friend.” They also invite us to review the quality and depth of unconditional friendship we offer others. This Sunday we will unpack the treasure trove of friendship—soul-to-soul. Bring a friend, be a friend and join us!
October 08 Growing Holy Relationships, Part II – Rev. Pam
The touch of friendship in its physical, emotional, and spiritual expressions is Spirit’s love, compassion, and grace made tangible in our lives. Wise are those who call upon those qualities during times of challenges with friends, as they allow us to practice deep listening, forgiving, and loving—both of our friends and ourselves. Such a holy relationship is a powerful mirror, reflecting back to us our evolutionary progress.
October 15 Thank You For Being My Friend! – Rev. Pam
It hasn’t been all that long ago that scientific studies proved the interconnectivity among our human family, while for millenniums we have been taught through spiritual teachings that there is no separation between souls, even while occupying different dimensions of living. How blessed we are that as we walk through this world we can turn to a friend and wholeheartedly say, “Thank you for being my friend.”
October 22 Unconditional Friendship
We sometimes think that true friends don’t or shouldn’t encounter bumpy times on the road of friendship, that they don’t express criticism, don’t offer opinions unless asked. But where is the growth in that? Unconditional friendship is about walking together through challenges, offering forgiveness on its path for the missteps intentionally or unintentionally made. It’s about healing and transforming together.
October 29 When Love Finds You, Be Willing to Be Found
It was former President Obama who wisely said, ‘In the fleeting time we have on this earth, what matters is not wealth or status or power or fame, but rather how well we have loved.” This willingness to love is part of a circuit of completion which includes our willingness to be loved. This Law of Love is a reflection of our relationship with Spirit itself: A conscious union of loving and being loved that is precious, sacred and eternal.
