The Divine Romance – March 25, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to the month of the Spring Solstice, a time of renewal and rejoicing. And that’s just what we’ll experience each week as together we explore April’s theme, Love: The Only Miracle that There Is. When we look into our spiritual pharmacy for healing whatever ails us in any given circumstance, Love is the salve that remedies our inner and outer wounds.

May we stand together as a spiritual family and let the miracles begin!

The topic on March 18, 2018, was The Divine Romance. What biblical parable would you identify as one which, without exception, we can all relate to, one which Ernest Holmes describes as, “…one of the greatest spiritual lessons in the history of religious education”? Hint: This parable offers us absolute evidence of the unconditional love expressing in our soul’s divine romance with Spirit—just as we are in the very moment of reading these words.

Love’s Gift of Radical Forgiveness – March 18, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to the month of the Spring Solstice, a time of renewal and rejoicing. And that’s just what we’ll experience each week as together we explore April’s theme, Love: The Only Miracle that There Is. When we look into our spiritual pharmacy for healing whatever ails us in any given circumstance, Love is the salve that remedies our inner and outer wounds.

May we stand together as a spiritual family and let the miracles begin!

The topic on March 11, 2018, was Love’s Gift of Radical Forgiveness. In his book—whose title I have appropriated for this Sunday’s talk—Colin Tipping writes, “Radical Forgiveness challenges us to fundamentally shift our perception of the world and our interpretation of what happens to us so we can stop being victims.” Need more be said? Well, for most of us yes, because in our culture we have perfected self-blame, shame, and guilt. Forgiveness begins with our own capacity to compassionately, lovingly forgive ourselves.

Loving and Accepting Your Imperfectly Perfect Self – March 11, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to the month of the Spring Solstice, a time of renewal and rejoicing. And that’s just what we’ll experience each week as together we explore April’s theme, Love: The Only Miracle that There Is. When we look into our spiritual pharmacy for healing whatever ails us in any given circumstance, Love is the salve that remedies our inner and outer wounds.

May we stand together as a spiritual family and let the miracles begin!

The topic on March 11, 2018, was Loving and Accepting Your Imperfectly Perfect Self. In the wise words of Dr. Holmes, “At the spiritual level we are each perfect, but our individual use of Life and Law enables us to cover a perfect idea with an apparently imperfect cloak.” That our inner spiritual perfection doesn’t always reflect in our humanness provides evidence that we are spiritual beings having a human experience—and not the other way around!

The Freedom in Facing Fear, Eliminating Bias – March 4, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to the month of the Spring Solstice, a time of renewal and rejoicing. And that’s just what we’ll experience each week as together we explore April’s theme, Love: The Only Miracle that There Is. When we look into our spiritual pharmacy for healing whatever ails us in any given circumstance, Love is the salve that remedies our inner and outer wounds.

May we stand together as a spiritual family and let the miracles begin!

The topic on March 4, 2018, was The Freedom in Facing Fear, Eliminating Bias. Two of the common forms of experiencing separation from our Creator Source and our Higher Self are fear and blame. The remedy is not denying these energies, but instead navigating them with spiritual skillfulness. The truth is, Spirit doesn’t abandon us in the midst of these feelings; it is we who abandon ourselves. This Sunday we will learn how to free ourselves from getting swept away by feelings we think we should not feel and instead gladden our hearts with self-love.

Living in the Paradox of Strong Yet Tender – February 25, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to our monthly glimpse into February’s spiritual explorations and theme, The Path of the Brave Hearted.

The etymology of the word brave is from the late 15th century’s Middle French and means “valiant,” and from the Italian and Spanish “bravo.” Does that cause you, as it does me, to put your spiritual shoulders back, step out of your comfort zone-and perhaps the status quo-and be brave enough to see, accept, and love yourself just as you are? Then to take that same stance for our world family where justice, compassion, and the dignity of all beings is concerned? That, my friends, calls for a collective “Bravo!” May our valiant journey begin now!

The topic on February 25, 2018, was Living in the Paradox of Strong Yet Tender. “To make ‘true belonging’ a daily practice in our lives,” writes Brené Brown, “we’re going to need a strong back and a soft front in order to experience true belonging.” In other words, it takes both a strong spiritual backbone and an open, tender heart to stand in our integrity, in our inherent knowing of our interconnectedness to all beings. As we enter the last week of our monthly theme, we will learn the benefits of navigating the terrain of our passionately committed wild hearts.

Truth, Bull****, and Soulful Civility – February 18, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to our monthly glimpse into February’s spiritual explorations and theme, The Path of the Brave Hearted.

The etymology of the word brave is from the late 15th century’s Middle French and means “valiant,” and from the Italian and Spanish “bravo.” Does that cause you, as it does me, to put your spiritual shoulders back, step out of your comfort zone-and perhaps the status quo-and be brave enough to see, accept, and love yourself just as you are?

That, my friends, calls for a collective “Bravo!” May our valiant journey begin now!

The topic on February 18, 2018, was Truth, Bull****, and Soulful Civility. Who among us has not at one time or another relied on BS-ing to worm our way through a sticky situation? To deny this would be even bigger bull****! So whether it’s our own BS or that of others, there are times when truth demands that we take a stand and speak out, just as Jesus did when driving the unscrupulous money changers out of the temple. And even as he did so, love was his motivator and civility informed his righteous indignation. Aren’t we capable of the same?

Getting Up Close and Personal – February 11, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to our monthly glimpse into February’s spiritual explorations and theme, The Path of the Brave Hearted.

That, my friends, calls for a collective “Bravo!” May our valiant journey begin now!

The topic on February 11, 2018, was Getting Up Close and Personal. Whether we’re placing the zoom lens on ourselves or others, when our focus captures our True Essence, we see the fabric of our being and all beings is that of Love. Our individual and collective flaws are overshadowed by the clarity of this seeing. This is the inner eye through which the master teacher Jesus saw all humanity. We too possess this 20/20 vision, and this week we will share how to see the loving nature within ourselves and all beings.

A Sense of True Belonging-Is It Bull**** or Reality? – February 4, 2018

Loving greetings and welcome to our monthly glimpse into February’s spiritual explorations and theme, The Path of the Brave Hearted.

The etymology of the word brave is from the late 15th century’s Middle French and means “valiant,” and from the Italian and Spanish “bravo.” Does that cause you, as it does me, to put your spiritual shoulders back, step out of your comfort zone-and perhaps the status quo-and be brave enough to see, accept, and love yourself just as you are?

That, my friends, calls for a collective “Bravo!” May our valiant journey begin now!

The topic on February 4, 2018, was A Sense of True Belonging-Is It Bull**** or Reality? According to Brené Brown, PhD and NY Times bestselling author, “…our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” Why is it that in spite of believing we are made from the very molecules of Spirit we remain unable to be a loyal, unconditionally loving friend to ourselves? Join us this Sunday and discover how to courageously break through the boundaries of the mental bull**** of societal conditioning and our own minds to become free at last.

What It Does – January 21, 2018

It is with a heart filled with joy and gratitude for all that we have accomplished as a beloved spiritual community that I wish you limitless contentment and profound awakening in the new year.

The topic on January 21, 2018, was What It Does. The Unnamable One—the “It” out of which we have emerged as individual expressions of Itself—is what we will reveal as our true identity, as the greatest “Doer” within and upon existence. Every day is an opportunity to mindfully observe how it operates, what Its job description is, how our choices and decisions can be made in collaboration with Its co-creative energies and manifest in our lives.
