Wednesday Night Wisdom with Dr. Edward Viljoen, "Creative Mind, Week Three," 7 pm, October 17

As Ernest Holmes recognized one hundred years ago, our minds are creative. Our thoughts create our experience. Aware of the connection between our thoughts and our lives, we get to choose how we think about ourselves and our world. For example, how kind were you on social media this past week?

On Wednesday evening, Dr. Edward continues to explore the core concepts of our teaching, the Science of Mind, based upon Holmes' first book, Creative Mind. The one-hour class is free and open to everyone. It starts promptly at 7 pm in the sanctuary.
