Hello and welcome! Abundant Life Spiritual Center is a dynamic spiritual community with a focus on awakening those who walk through our doors to the divine within and inspiring them to live confidently, passionately and powerfully. Together we learn how to Live Fearlessly and Love Outrageously because life is meant to be filled with joy and lived with ease as a positive experience, not a struggle. We named ourselves Abundant Life because we know that the Abundant Life - a life of wholeness and authentic self-expression, purpose, creativity and love - is the divine birthright of everyone and we want to support your living it.
You will find yourself among like-minded people if:
On Sunday, September 28 we will celebrate our fourth anniversary during our regular service at 10:30 am. Our theme is "Make Your Passion Happen!!" Our band, The Grateful Living, will be joined by some of Chicago's best musicians and will perform with a full band sound. We will also honor our newest members of our community as part of the service. After service, we will have a potluck picnic in the pavilion behind the Patty Turner Center.
Whether you are a long time pray-er or are realizing just now that it is time to get prayer firmly rooted in your life, come learn to pray and practice it in a safe environment during this three-week Tuesday night class led by Rev. Carol Saunders. Participants will learn the 5-step affirmative prayer process we use at Abundant Life Spiritual Center with a focus on using the spiritual gift of Imagination to visualize results. Participants will also learn and practice the Master Mind prayer process using the Seven Steps Into the Master Mind Consciousness.
Our band, The Grateful Living, continues its evolutionary unfoldment. In September, Maggie Mitchell - who has been a favorite guest vocalist at Abundant Life - joined the band as lead vocalist. Maggie is an amazing talent and we are grateful to have her. She can be found singing the National Anthem all over Chicagoland at sports games and special events. She is a recurring guest artist with Girl Group Chicago and other Chicago based bands. She produced a Holiday album in 2013, and co-produced and performed as lead singer for the Chicago all female cover-band, GIRLBAND.
As your birthright, did you know that you are blessed with 12 spiritual gifts from God? Do you know what they are and how to use them skillfully?
Using the book, The Twelve Powers of Man, by Charles Fillmore and How to Use Your Twelve Gifts from God by William Warch, we will learn about each of these powers and how to make full use of them for truly abundant and healthy living.
This class will be taught by Rev. Carol Saunders and Licensed Unity Teacher, Bonnie DeMartini, and will be offered for Spiritual Education and Enrichment (SEE) credit through Unity. You may choose to take it for credit or for personal enrichment.
A Call for Community Prayer for Evolutionary Healing - Holding Our City of Chicago with Highest Intentions
A seed prayer group at Abundant Life Spiritual Center is now being called forth to positively affect our neighbors and communities in the City of Chicago.
In Truth, we know we are One. As One, the blessings of any one of us positively affects the whole. As One, the despair of any one of us negatively affects the whole. As spiritual journeyers it is our work to establish a vibration of Love and Harmony in our world. Prayer and meditation are the ways we connect to the one Presence and Power that is all Love, Peace, Harmony and Joy. It is the foundation of Unity and the foundation of Abundant Life Spiritual Center. Through prayer, we claim what is true and effect action in line with Divine Mind.
Prayer is a powerful and practical tool that affirms our unity with God, the unconditional loving Source of all that is. It is practical because a prayer is more than the words we think or speak. The vision and intention we hold in our minds are creative forces in our lives. As one practical example, Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, used affirmative prayer to heal herself from tuberculosis. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore founded the Unity movement in 1889 as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own experience of reality.
Abundant Life Spiritual Center continues this healing ministry with a team of Prayer Partners. Your Prayer Partners are available to join you in affirmative prayer every Sunday.
