This Sunday: JOY: Happy for No Reason (I)
 
~ ~ ~ 
 
Are you willing to be happy?
What if you could experience happiness from the inside out--no matter what's going on in your life?
News Flash:  Joy is our natural state.
 
*     *     *     *     *     *     *
 
I love it when people ask me to tell them my secret for being happy because I don't really have a secret other than:
  • I don't listen very long to people who want to convince me that I should be unhappy
  • I pay attention to things that make me unhappy and I stop doing them as soon as possible.  
That's pretty much the whole secret!
--Brian Andreas, Story People
 
 
There is a laughter of God--let's laugh it. There is a song of the Universe--let's sing it.  There is a joy--let's experience it.
--Ernest Holmes

December: Give the Holiday Gift of JOY
This Sunday: The JOY of Becoming!
~ ~ ~ 
As mental and spiritual practitioners, Ernest Holmes teaches us to meditate daily and "venture forth into a life of action, with the will to do, the determination to be, and the joy in becoming!"
*     *     *     *     *     *     *
 
When we constructively praise and creatively bless, life abounds with love, peace and joy.  Let goodness shine forth.  Let us learn to see that everyone is an evolving Christ.  Let us so live and think that we may retire at night in peace, knowing that no harm can come to the soul; that we may rise in the morning renewed in body and mind, with a brighter outlook, a happier expectation and a clearer joy, looking upon all with love, condemning none and blessing even those who seek to injure us.  Let us learn to be perfect, even as that Divine Being, residing in the heart of all and overshadowing Eternity, must also be perfect.
 
--Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind

This Sunday: Happy for No Reason (II)
 
~ ~ ~ 
 
 
What if you could experience happiness from the inside out, no matter what's going on in your life?
 
In a fit of holiday frustration someone once prayed: Forgive us our Christmases as we forgive those who Christmas against us!  Do you ever secretly feel that way?  Instead, you can unplug the "Holiday Machine" and create your own unique holiday experience filled with Joy.
 
*     *     *     *     *     *     *
My joyous song of life is the joy of Spirit.
 
--Emma Curtis Hopkins
 
Ever since happiness heard your name,
it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
And several times in the last week,
God himself has even come to my door,
asking for your address!
 
--Hafiz

I make of my mind a stable and welcome the Christ Idea of perfect spiritual man.
 
--Ernest Holmes & Raymond Charles Barker, 365 Days of Richer Living
 
Jesus is the point in the human enterprise where the divine and the human flow together perfectly, revealing God as the Source of love, the Source of life, and the Ground of Being.  Jesus is a human being where the essence of the divine life breaks forth with a peculiar intensity.  Jesus reveals God in loving totally, living fully, and being all that he can be.  I worship the God I meet in Jesus by risking love, by daring to live, and by having the courage to be myself -- my best, deepest, and holiest self.  As I walk to the edges of life and bump into the meaning of transcendence, I find God over, under, around, and through all that I know and all that I am.
 
--John Shelby Spong, Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism

Sunday AM Service with Rev. Karen Wolfson "Release the Old and Make Room for the New!" and our Sacred "Letting Go" Ceremony- (Sun. 31 Dec, 2017 10:00 am)

"Release the Old and Make Room for the New!"
and  our Sacred "Letting Go" Ceremony
~ ~ ~ 
 
You are warmly invited to join with us in relaxed, thoughtful, and sacred reflection.
 
It's time to make room for the NEW!  Life is always making all things new.  But often, our attachment to the old can obscure the new possibilities that Spirit is offering us.
 
Let's clear our inner house of the clutter of old stories, old hurts, resentments, old "contracts" that no longer serve us; habitual beliefs in lack and limitation, even habitual "I'm not enough," beliefs about ourselves.
 
Principle is not bound by precedent and neither am I.  So I begin this new year by setting my intentions with confidence and delight, knowing that God in me continually makes all things new.
