The Spiritual Importance of Agreements
Joyous Thanksgiving wishes to you and your dear ones as you celebrate this beautiful season of gratitude. And to every member of our spiritual community, I want you to know how grateful I am that we are walking the path together in celebration of the Spirit, in a mutual commitment to opening our hearts and giving our “Yes” to Spirit’s limitless gifts of opportunities to grow, to be of loving, selfless service in the world.
Do join us during this special month when our theme will be, “The Spiritual Importance of Agreements,” which will focus on Don Miguel Ruiz’s classic, The Four Agreements, a book that emphasizes how our inner agreements form the spiritual foundation of our integrity with Spirit, ourselves, others, and all Life.
Love and Peace,

Sunday Topics: 11:00 AM
November 03 The First Agreement: “Be Impeccable with Your Word” – Rev. Pam
Every day, whether it’s consciously or unconsciously, we make agreements with ourselves as our thought-energy takes the form of words, spoken or unspoken. Our word is the governing law of our life. Of course there are times when we want to take back our words, and we can, as we simultaneously learn to grow in being impeccable with their usage.
November 10 The Second Agreement: “Don’t Take Anything Personally” – Rev. Pam
Whew, even this instruction can feel personal! The human ego, being what it is, has been programmed to take things personally. But this pattern isn’t etched in our consciousness, only our mind, which means that we can learn to become more spiritually mature and not be personally impacted by the dialogue we have with ourselves about ourselves, nor the words of others.
November 17 The Third Agreement: “Don’t Make Assumptions” – Rev. Pam
The challenge with assumptions is that we sometimes mistake them for an intuitive hit, especially when our ego is invested in assumptions which can quickly morph into solid opinions. The first person we should check in with about our assumptions is our self, and then, with a clean intention, approach others for the sake of clarification and any necessary healing.
November 24 The Fourth Agreement: “Always Do Your Best” – Rev. Pam
Is it even realistic to agree or expect to always do our best? Even with the best of intentions we may fall a little short, so this Sunday we will dive more deeply into the subtle aspects of what this agreement means relative to our relationship with Spirit, our spiritual practice, our relationship with our self and with others.
