Imagine living your life fearlessly and powerfully, true to yourself in your work and relationships. You are the creator of your wonderful life - no longer a victim of circumstances like time, finances, a diagnosis, what people say or think about you or anything else. Now imagine a world where everyone’s experience is the same. That is what we are about at Abundant Life Spiritual Center. Real Peace.
We exist to unleash the divine authentic expression within and empower everyone to live abundant, amazing lives – lives of authentic self-expression, purpose, wholeness, creativity and love. We believe that's how we were created to live!
Spirit is guiding us to move into a new format for our gatherings. Whereas in the past you may have experienced what we called a ‘Sunday service,’ we have recently begun to gather and learn practical principles for spiritual living through current events, informal storytelling, music, prayer, dialogue and discovery. We call it a Spiritual Forum. “We believe that the world is ripe for the Unity message and we need to be flexible and approachable for people who are unaccustomed to or turned off by the church structure,” says Rev. Carol.
Enhance your Christmas season experience this year by attending our spiritual Christmas Eve service on Saturday, December 24 at 5 pm. The traditional Christmas story will be told through a metaphysical lens with music that will move your soul. No matter your religious background, the symbols and meaning of this story will come alive in a personal way. As in past years, this service will be held in the beautiful sanctuary of First Church Christ Scientist, 155 Deerfield Road in Deerfield. We rent this space so that we can conclude with our traditional candle lighting ceremony as we experience the Presence of Divine Love awakening in the world and within us.
Join Rev. Carol each morning for a prayer for our nation (Monday through Friday) at 7:30 am beginning Monday, November 28 until January 20 (40 days). During each prayer call, we will listen to a reading from the Daily Word, published by Unity. Rev. Carol will then call us to prayer as we focus on the Truth that we know and pray for our nation and its leaders past, present and future, for healing and a peaceful transition of power, and for ourselves as healers and peacemakers.

When I see what is going on after our national election, it looks to me like our country is in greater need of a spiritual core than perhaps ever before. I see evidence everywhere that people do not know that God is the Essence of their Being. If we really knew that – if we lived it – there would not be so much violence, finger-pointing, fear and fear-mongering going on (on all sides). In Truth, there is nothing to fear. Ever. I can hear the Master Teacher saying, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” (Matthew 8:26)
