The Power of Imagination – Nov. 26, 2017

This is the time of the year that I begin to look to the future.  What will the New Year bring?  What should I ask for at Christmas?  What do I want for the New Year?  Then I let my mind wander and my imagination runs wild with all the possibilities. This Sunday we will… Read More

Come Ye Thankful People Come! – November 19, 2017

My friends, Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore in How to Let God Help You said, “Thanksgiving and gratitude are qualities of the soul too little understood and exercised.

Manifesting a World That Works for Everyone – Oct. 15, 2017

New Thought author Emmet Fox famously said, “you can have either your demonstration or your anger, but you cannot have both.” By demonstration he means manifesting peace and harmony in your relationships and daily endeavors, manifesting a world that works for everyone.

How do we know what we know? Oct. 1. 2017

How do we know what we know? That’s the fundamental question at the root of the study of metaphysics and one of the key questions we need to address when we ponder our part in the evolution of consciousness.
