We are delighted your spiritual journey has brought you here and we look forward to welcoming you to CSL Metro! Our Sunday services are rewarding, enlightening, and dedicated to empowering you to live your true purpose.
Each Sunday service begins at 10:00 am. We invite you to join us at 9:15 am for meditation led by a member of our Prayer ministry team. We ask you to please silence your cell phone prior to entering the sanctuary.
Since the well being of our congregation is our primary concern, we have a conference system in place so that everyone can attend service in their pajamas, rather than venture out when it is not safe to be on the roads. If we are switching to our “virtual service,” it will be announced (with instructions) on the home page of this site.

January Theme: “Origin”
the point or place where something begins, arises, or is derived.
Knowing my origin, I celebrate what I am: Spirit in expression.
Contemplation from Rev Trish
Our origin, the point or place from which we began, is derived from Spirit.
There is only Oneness, uniquely individuating as many.

| December 29th - “What’s Next?" with Rev Trish Hall
We come together on the last Sunday of the year for a Burning Bowl Ceremony to surrender everything that does not serve us. The ceremony is profound. We are set free from the tendrils of old guilts, entanglements and constraints that may have held us back in order to lean into and fully embrace our authentic “selfness.” This year we will follow the ceremony with a potluck brunch and Treasure Mapping in which we invite Spirit to reveal our individual “What’s Next?” Through the creative process of Treasure Mapping we are able to peer into the future and unveil possibilities. We will complete this powerfully transformative day with a ritual to affirm and confirm how we choose to be as we move forward. This empowering sequence is composed of tools that change our thinking. Our lives cannot not also be changed. Join us for a truly transformative Sunday!
| January 5th - “Bang! Explains It All” with Rev Trish
In the beginning, there was no form – only energy. That energy sprung forth of itself into and as all creation. That was the “big bang’. Truly, it explains it all! Obviously then we are all made of “God-stuff.” This gives rise to an enormous question: when/why did we collectively forget our origin? How did we arrive at a point that most of us believe we are less than divine essence? Some might claim that we have been brainwashed – that the truth of our origin was washed out of our brains. Whether there is a grain of truth in that statement or not, this – the opening of 2020 - is the perfect time to awaken to our pure potentiality. Rev Trish invites you, “Come along with me and we shall see the magnificence of your divinity!”
|January 12th – “Growing Together” a munch-and-meet potluck - with Rev Trish and your Leadership Team
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t sense the benefits of togetherness. Together simply is better. Synergism generates results greater than those of each individual independently. The interaction or cooperation of two or more people or organizations produces combined effects that exceed the sum of their separate effects. Synergism is the life-blood of spiritual community so everyone is invited to stay after service for “Spirit-Storming” otherwise known as Divinely Inspired brainstorming. Please share your ideas.
|January 19th - “Thinking Makes It So!” with Rev Trish
Before all form there is energy. Before all that is visible, there is an invisible prototype in mind which is thought into form just as all of creation resulted from the invisible Absolute expressing Itself into form. We, as expressions of the Absolute, come with that same creative power pre-installed. The questions are: How will we put this creative power to use? What is our ‘why’ for what we create? Who will be the beneficiaries of our divine designs? Shakespeare’s Hamlet said, “For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” So if nothing is intrinsically good or bad, it is consciousness that directs the creative process toward good for all. Delving into the use of this tool, we realize it is more powerful than any other force. How then shall we use it?
| January 26th - “Success Can’t Be Measured” with Rev Trish
We measure almost everything! We measure money, goals, sizes, shapes, weights, distances, speeds and the list goes on and on. Success, however, can’t be quantified. It can’t be measured. Success is sensed. What are the elements of being successful? You probably know how it is to feel success, yet how do you know when you have succeeded? Is success something you yearn for that feels just beyond your reach? Last week we looked into the far reaching effects of our perceptions. What if you cannot not be a success and it is your perception that is blocking your experience?
