Minister’s Message for June

Contemporary Violence and Inner Peace

“Then it was as if I suddenly saw the secret beauty of their hearts, the depths of their hearts where neither sin nor desire nor self-knowledge can reach, the core of their reality, the person that each one is in God’s eyes. If only they could all see themselves as they really are.

If only we could see each other that way all the time. There would be no more war, no more hatred, no more cruelty, no more greed . . .  But this cannot be seen, only believed and ‘understood’ by a peculiar gift.”

~ Thomas Merton

"Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander"

Rev. Dr. Andrea

Rev. Dr. Andrea

If you are like me, there can be such despair, anger and a sense of hopelessness in the face of so much violence in our world. As a spiritual person I ask myself, “What can I do? I’m only one person. Does anything I think to do really make a difference?”

This month I would like to explore this in depth through the lens of many of my teachers and what they have taught me. Here, briefly, I will simply say that what we choose to think, speak and do in the world DOES matter a great deal. Inner peace in the face of a violent world is not a form of denial or spiritual bypass – it is a requirement for effective and compassionate action.

The Science of Mind is a way of building a sturdy and resilient inner platform for peace to blossom and spread.

I hope you will join me in this exploration!

Sunday Service at the Center

10:30 AM Celebration Service

The Celebration Service is filled with music and song, spiritual practice and an inspiring message. Children are a delightful part of this Service before spending time in small groups with their teachers. This Service is the spiritual and social gathering point for our community – and we love welcoming newcomers to our home!

Our Sunday Service is inspiring and joyful with an uplifting message. Best of all, we apply spiritual principles to daily life that help you contemplate the issues you may be facing. Join us in person or virtually!

We honor all paths to God/Spirit and can help you experience a personal relationship with It. When It is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place: we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and help bring peace and harmony to the world.
