Virtual Sunday Service - September 27, 2020 at 10am ET

" Spiritual Partnership Pt.4 "
with music by
Meg Rayner, Brian Doser, Keith Bickford

Watch on our website or YouTube channel
Rev Ogun continues his series based on Gary Zukav's book Spiritual Partnerships: The Journey To Authentic Power. A spiritual partnership is a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth. To understand this idea, we must recognize that personalities are not equal, but souls are. No one is more important than you, and also no one is less important than you. When we have superiority or inferiority issues in our lives, those ideas are based in fear. It is not possible to create a truly spiritual partnership when one of the partners is coming from a place of fear. In this way, the only way to have a spiritual relationship is to be truly equal. This equality arises from one’s sense of authentic power. It arises from the soul, rather than the self.

Our Evolving Consciousness: Diving Deeply Into the Extraordinary

We do understand differing financial and scheduling circumstances, so you can also register for portions of the conference.
At our last Community Meeting it was suggested that before moving forward into what's next for us to do and be, we needed to do forgiveness work as a congregation. The Board agrees, and we have reached out to Rev Martha Creek, a well-known and respected minister, leader, coach, and consultant in the New Thought movement. The Board is scheduled to meet with Martha soon to finalize details around what will work best for our community and we will share the details as soon as we have them. Click here to learn more about Rev Martha Creek.
