This Sunday, July 07, 2019 at 10:30am, we invite you to our Celebration Service where R ev. Maryum Morse will be giving the talk: "How Can Spiritual Truths Improve Your Life?"    

  In this discussion, Rev. will share how core wisdom teachings can provide the framework of values for your life, steering you clear of pitfalls of ego and connecting you to your purpose. Through spiritual practice and embodying your truth, this is how you achieve true freedom!

Douglas Howard, RScP. Is on pulpit duty. 

Eje Lynn-Jacobs & George Friedenthal will set the musical tone for our joyful Celebration Service.

This weekly gathering is your opportunity to build up your faith muscles and forge a connection with other truth-seekers in your community!

This month's theme is 
FREEDOM

 

  
This week's quote:
""I call the mind free which escapes the bondage of matter, and instead of stopping at the material universe and making it a prison wall, passes beyond it to another and finds, in the radiant signatures which it everywhere hears of the Infinite Spirit, helps to its own spiritual enlargement." - William Ellery Channing
 
This Week's Affirmation
I have the freedom & power to create the life I desire
We look forward to your presence here with us!
You Are Welcome here

 

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
 
My Mind is Free
There is only One Power and presence. In my awareness of the Oneness of God, I know my mind is free. My mind escapes the bondage of confusion, doubt, and fear. I know that I am the highest creation of God, made out of Itself, and my knowing allows me to celebrate my positive spiritual growth and understanding.
 
My health is truly the health of Life-the indwelling Life of God. My love is truly the Love of God. I relax easily, freely, and deeply into this successful day. I love every minute of it. I am living a whole new level of positive purpose and faith in action. I now sense an ever-deepening peace flowing through my thoughts, my body, my being, and my world. I inhale and exhale the joy of God.
 
I have a vital sense of being important and indispensable part of this universe. I give thanks that I am radiantly alive with the grandeur of God. I release this prayer. It is done. And so it is. Amen
Rev. Maryum Morse

Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
 
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!
 
Ace of Michael
"A wonderful new idea! Don't allow bumps in the road to hinder your progress. Clear up communication problems with others."
You've come up with a wonderful new idea! Insight that had previously eluded you shines upon a situation or problem. Now the way forward is clear to you, and you move full steam ahead. There is an opportunity here to do things in an entirely new way. 

Give attention to the details in your plan of action, but also keep an eye on the big picture. There could be a bumpy start, but don't let that deter you from continuing to move forward! Clear up any communication problems with others. Don't allow misunderstandings to fester. Get to the truth of the matter.
.
Additional meaning: Be honest with yourself. Look for the silver lining. Don't give up.
 
JUST A THOUGHT (or two) ABOUT THIS CARD:
What stands out for me with this card is: attention to details of your plan of action and keep an eye on the big picture
 
Here's why - the image on this Ace of Michael is reminiscent with his wide wing span of his angelic wings of an eagle. And like the eagle, this card is about seeing far with visual acuity. You have made the visual inventory. You have taken stock of the situation at hand. You have assessed and have developed a new point of view and a plan that is based on the truth of what you want and need.
 
I have heard time and time again, that when you have a problem, within the existence of said problem there is already a solution. But Einstein is remembered to have said "You can never solve a problem at the same level as the problem" So this means to me GO HIGH. You reach for a higher answer and have received a higher vibration answer to said problem.
 
Also I sense from this card, that now isn't the time to get all caught up in the details. You make the plan and then there is that time frame where you are coasting like a bird on the wing with the momentum stirred up by your action plan unfolding through your constancy and effort, and now you are just awaiting the birth and fulfillment of the plans to happen.
 
SO we set our course now, based on newly acquired information and inspiration, we know the direction we are heading and the goal we are aiming for, and now we are in the majestic phase (or beginning that phase) where we flow with the energy we've created by going full bore steam ahead towards that goal!
 
What a good card to get.
 
Here's why - let's talk about the symbols:
 
Ace is about beginnings and a new start - Aces have a value of 1 or 11 - serious mystical numbers - One meaning self, unity, the universe and to my thinking the Divine - or angelic accompaniment or assistance to the Querent. Eleven -high state of spiritual evolution. So that means we went through something to get to this point and things have kicked up a notch. We see with 20/20 vision and know what we need to do!
 
So in breaking it down, we see that with this card it heralds a "Spiritual Reboot" - you got another life beginning, you're headed with the blessings of the Universe towards victory of your plan, journey, new stuff happening as it should and with approval and assistance built into the framework
 
Now we add Archangel Michael to the mix - who stands for Swords in the traditional cards - meaning mental energies, lofty heights, brilliant light - This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius! - It's dark up in here no more. We are inspired!
 
- Michael meaning "strength of God" - which is like bringing the big guns out for protection of your precious project!
 
This is the thinking suit - Sparkling ideas, intellect, ingenuity, cleverness, education, skills and know-how!  
 
You may not know how to go about doing the new thing, but don't let that stop you! The teacher will appear as the student is ready and this is what this card is packing for your new hotness and special project.
 
It states you WILL have guidance, the team and the assistance you need as you go for your dream.
 
You are not to give up
You are not to throw up your hands in frustration
Do not allow this filly to buck you off.
 
No matter how rocky, arduous or steep the dream is - the whole of heaven is at your disposal to help you reach this new mountain top.
 
The time is now and the details will be handled - for now just stick to the plan.
 
I'm frankly getting on this excitement bandwagon.
 
It is not time to look backwards at the piles of rubble that are behind from other attempts and experiments.
 
Now we are richer with experience and those milestones and former glories are in the distance fading further and further into the past. No it is time to perk up and go for the new dream and our inevitable victories to come!
 
Here is a quote to help illustrate:
 
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
Henry David Thoreau
 
Here's SOME affirmation to use and let the peace from within flow:
 
  • I can do anything I put my mind to.
  • I have faith in myself and in my abilities.
  • I have what it takes to reach my goals.
  • I can handle anything that comes my way.
  • Great strength lies within me at all times.
  • I have the courage to keep going.
  • I have the courage to walk my own path and follow my dreams.
 
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

Inspirational Poem:
 
In this moment, I am entwined
in the vine of love
In this moment I have abandoned care
for consequence
Oh humans, I'm no longer one of you
The bravest men won't dare come near my heart
Mad men run away at the sight of my passion
I make love to death
Nothingness is my companion
Even cleverness is upset with me
It tried to frighten me, it misjudged its opponent
I accept I am a prisoner of this world
But I am here, the prison is there
Tell me, whose belongings have I stolen?
Come live where I reside
My home is beyond In o Aan*
What need have I for a mind?
I have destroyed my
thoughts and burnt my worries
Something Other has my attention
What need have I for a heart?
Blood of the Beloved
is running through my veins
I am life itself
***
"In o aan" is the Persian phrase for "this and that" nonsense we keep inside.

What Brother Ernie said:
 
 
 
On Freedom
 
 
We desire freedom. We do not like evil, we do not like pain, we do not like poverty, we do not like unhappiness. Why should we? None of us likes to go to bed and worry all night and get up tired out in the morning. God does not impose it on us. Why do we do it? Because we sense freedom, we sense liberty, we sense God, yet out here in the objective world we experience limitation; and the argument is between what we feel ought to take place and what we see and the world experiences. It seems as though we are two people, one that experiences evil and one that knows there should be no evil.
The evolution of freedom in the human mind is a slow process. Many movements in the world that claim to be seeking liberty only produce new kinds of bondage. We should beware of them. They are born out of the idea of depression; they are born out of the spirit of bondage. If we want freedom, we must understand that freedom can never come by the imposition of a will of the minority over the majority. It is born finally, and only in such degree as some system is devised whereby individuals are allowed complete freedom so long as they do not, in their freedom, impose bondage on someone else.
I believe that the true spirit of democracy is a spiritual conception where there is freedom, liberty without license, and a flexibility that makes evolution possible on the foundation of freedom. As we enter into the spirit of the meaning of Independence Day, the day when liberty, symbolically, was conceived, the day when freedom, objectively, in our country was announced, we should think of it not merely as a political system or form of government, but we should think of it as a spiritual conception, an idea in the Divine Mind Itself, taking form in human experience; we should learn to love that liberty, and in loving the idea we should learn to tenderly and prayerfully handle the embodiment of that idea and nourish it always to greater strength; we should really conceive again the great spiritual conception of that rugged man of God who said: "...that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth." as to
