The world, spiritually speaking, is in better condition than it has been
because out of all the controversy, the mental turmoil will come some
kind of an answer. And the new answer must provide a bridge between
the intellect and the emotions. It must be intelligent, scientific and artistic.

Wednesday Night Wisdom with Dr. Edward Viljoen, "The Power of Prayer, 7 pm, April 11

"Prayer is the conscious well-being of the soul. [T]here is a subtle transfusion of some invisible force as we pray, weaving itself into the warp and woof of our own mentalities."    It's Up to You, pp. 84-85

Affirmative prayer, what in Science of Mind we call Spiritual Mind Treatment, is one of our central spiritual practices. It is not a petition for God or Spirit to do something, it is for us to align our awareness with the essential Truth of our being and open to infinite possibilities.

This Wednesday, prayer is Dr. Edward's focus at the free Wednesday evening class.  Plan to join in at 7 pm in the sanctuary.  All are welcome, no registration or previous attendance is necessary.

Wednesday Night Wisdom with Dr. Edward Viljoen, "The Choice Is Yours," 7 pm, March 28

Ernest Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind, does not mince words.  He opens Chapter 8 of It's up to You with the following statement: "...historians may record this age as the period of [humanity's] greatest stupidity."  Why? Because we have yet to choose to receive all the good that is available to us as expressions of the Divine.

At Wednesday's free class, Dr. Edward guides us through a chapter that invites us into a deeper belief in the Good that is in, through and as all that is.  The class begins at 7 pm and is open to everyone, no need to preregister. If you missed earlier classes, you can order audio CDs in the bookstore and download handouts from the link at the bottom of the sidebar to the right of this blog.
