Setting Your Intention for 2018

burning bowl 2We will again hold an Burning Bowl ceremony this year. It will take place before we open The Spiritual Forum on Sunday, January 7,  2018 at 10:00 am in the Patty Turner Center. During this ceremony we will let go of thoughts and patterns which no longer serve us, releasing them to the flame of the burning bowl. We will then write a letter to our Higher Self/Power. This powerful tradition helps to support our intentions for the New Year.

Pray for Our Nation Continues

Pray-for-Our-Nation-2For 40 days leading up to Inauguration, we gathered as a spiritual community every weekday morning in prayer to hold the high watch for our nation and ourselves. We focused on the spiritual ideas of Faith, Love, Freedom Compassion, Peace, Harmony, Letting Go and Letting God, Leading by Example, Divine Order, Healing, Understanding and Forgiveness. This prayer helped many of us to direct our lives in positive ways, rather than fall into the muck of negativity and gossip, and raise our vibration and that of our nation. We will be continuing these calls on a weekly basis.

To see how this time of prayer can benefit you, here are some comments from one of our participants:

The Spiritual Forum

AL WelcomeSpirit-led, we have shifted away from 'church' to a new format for our Sunday gatherings. Whereas in the past you may have experienced what we called a ‘Sunday service,’ we are now gathering to learn practical principles for spiritual living through dialogue and discovery. We call it The Spiritual Forum. The Spiritual Forum is a platform for spiritual deepening/living and a Spirit-led voice of awakening in the world. We are here to do the spiritual work! It is a bold new alternative to church where we don't just listen to the ideas of the minister, but share our own life experiences.

Pray for Peace Monthly Call

imagesGod is the power of Love and the Presence of Peace and Harmony. God is our unchangeable and eternal Source and Supply. The physical world that we live in does not often reflect its spiritual Truth. Most of us would agree that we are living in uncertain times. As spiritual journeyers, we are called to be Lights of Love and Agents of Peace in all situations and circumstances.  We can bring Light, Love and Peace to the world through our own lives and through prayer.
