Wednesday Night Wisdom with Rev. Tara Steele, "The Nature of True Joy," 7 pm, Wednesday, May 2

The three authors of The Book of Joy

This Wednesday we begin a new class, based on The Book of Joy. The material was put together during a weeklong visit the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu shared in honor of the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday. Rev. Tara is excited to be teaching this class. It is filled with "well duh" wisdom like the purpose in this human life is to be happy -- and then the follow-up practices and beliefs that turn that possibility into daily life. 

This free class begins promptly at 7 pm; there's no need to register ahead or have taken other classes.  The meditation room upstairs is open from 6:15 to 6:50 pm if you would like to sit in stillness for awhile before class.

This week concludes our 11-week exploration of Ernest Holmes's book It's Up to You.  The final chapter provides practical simple (but not always easy) suggestions to move in the direction of your dreams.  Here are a couple of examples: "Overcome negative mental attitudes." and "Learn to make your work easy."  

Plan to join Practitioner Kathleen Kearney as she brings this chapter to life and invites you to consider what you choose to do.  This free class begins at 7 pm. All are welcome. There is no need to register.

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.

Join Practitioner Kathleen Kearney this Wednesday as she explores what it means to think creatively. This free class begins at 7 pm; there is no need to register, just come ready to explore the teachings of the Science of Mind. All are welcome.

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.
