November 7th – “The View From Here Is Amazing!” with Eugene Holden, RScP

They say that beauty is in the eye of the one who is doing the looking. So true! The beauty we see depends more on where we are looking from than what we are looking at. Shifting perspectives shifts perceptions.

November 21st – “Celebrating the Journey” with Jackie LaBarre, RScP

The evolution of our Divinity is a journey – a journey of highs and lows, ups and downs. Let us take a step back to celebrate where we have been, where we are, and open to where we are going. As Dr. Ernest Holmes put it so succinctly, “When we constructively praise and creatively bless, life abounds with love, peace, and joy. …In everything give thanks”.


November 28th – “Gratitude Beyond Gifts” with Rev Trish

Gratitude is the realization that all Good has already been provided. Gratitude is more than an emotion; it is a causative energy which reveals the ever-present abundance of the universe. The sun continuously shining on us without asking anything in return can serve as a great example. Giving without attaching any conditions or expectations sets both the giver and the receiver free to flow in cycles of giving and receiving.

December 5th – “Surrender to Thrive” with Jackie LaBarre, RScP
Surrender is an action verb requiring a conscious choice to move from controlling to relaxing – relaxing into the Order of the Divine. We surrender into Order, choosing it rather than chaos, and in doing so, we let go of our sense of separation and enter into a state of conscious union with our Divine Self.

Be crumbled so wildflowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different.Surrender.
~~ Rumi

December 12th – “The Joy of Noticing”with Rev Trish
There is only one thing ever happening—the expression of God in and as each moment. The Life and expression of the Divine is here and now, as this moment and as each one experiencing the moment. God pours Itself through all creation. The fullness of Spirit is all around us awaiting our notice. so we take a moment to sit in the stillness to feel the surge of joy of noticing.

December19th – “Journey of Becoming the Gift” with Eugene Holden, RScP
Every day of our journey provides opportunity to be a gift to the world. What are your gifts? Are they evolving? Now is the time to put them into full expression with excitement, vigor, and hope. The world needs what you have to offer.

December 26th – “Music, Music, Music”with Rev Trish Kwanzaa Begins Today!
Music is said to be the soundtrack to our lives. The words and melodies of songs impress upon our minds and hearts the joys and sorrows of growing up, dating, love and loss, pain and triumph. Music is a witness of what is and was and may yet to be. What is your favorite song? What lyrics do you sing over and over again? This is a perfect time to sing a new song – a song of dwelling in the Presence – a song of being the unique, unrepeatable way Life expresses as you! What song do you choose to sing?
