"Mysticism: Experiencing Reality Directly" with Rev. Kim Kaiser, Wednesday, September 21, 2016 7 pm

"A mystic is one who intuitively perceives Truth and, without mental process, arrives at Spiritual Realization."  Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind,pg. 327

This Wednesday evening at 7 pm, Rev. Kim Kaiser begins our study of Ernest Holmes's view of mysticism. Readings from the chapter, "What the Mystics Have Taught"  will continue on Wednesday evenings through the end of October.  Here is a link to the Guide to the Science of Mind in One Year if you would like to download a copy of the daily guide.

Wednesday's reading is page 327, paragraph 1 through page 328, paragraph 2 (327.1-328.2).

Wednesday evenings are a mid-week boost, offering you a chance to learn more about the teachings of the centers for spiritual living as well as to be in spiritual community together.  And remember, light snacks and conversation follow the service.  All are welcome.

"Help Thanks Wow" - My High Sierra Journey Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 7 pm

My hike of a portion of the John Muir Trail was my alternative to Dr. Edward's invitation that I ride a bicycle for 500 miles, in traffic, albeit for a good cause.  I began planning last fall.  My nine days on the trail were as amazing and life-changing as folks told me they would be -- and much more than I expected.

This coming Wednesday, September 14, I'll talk a bit about how I came to call myself "Oma All-Ways" and why choosing Anne Lamott's book title for my talk months ago turned out to be so perfect.

Pictures and videos at 7 pm, snacks and conversation after service.  All are welcome.  Love, Rev. Tara

"Nothing Held Against Us" Wednesday evening service September 7, 2016, 7 pm

 "The Universe Holds Nothing Against Us"

As I type the topic for Dr. Edward's talk on Wednesday, I pause, "Nothing, absolutely nothing? What about ..."  Our human vision is often informed by our past, our expectations of ourselves, our judgments.  How can the universe, The Thing Itself, hold nothing against us?

Quick answer, that's just the way It works, no mistakes, no place where Good is not.  And I know that Dr. Edward will have more to say about this topic. Join him in spiritual community, this Wednesday, September 7, at 7 pm.  All are welcome.  After the service, stay to share light snacks and conversation with old and new friends.
