Fall is coming, and with it comes more changes! It seems as if life is one never ending change sometimes, doesn’t it? But as my friend and Practitioner Carol Davis acknowledges in her book “Changeless Change,” change is truly changeless. How’s that for a brain teaser?
If you are confused by that, don’t worry. I am too, but always always I am comforted by the Force within me that knows all things, and allows me to do the same, if I will simply sit still long enough to listen.
I’ve been doing a lot of sitting still lately, and what has come up for me is opportunity! And so we are creating opportunities for you to effect change in your own life.
The Core Council and I have lots of wonderful things planned for you. Check out the events section on the right for more details, but here’s a synopsis…take a big breath…..Prosperity Plus Two, Metaphysical Bible, It’s All God, Forgiveness, Gospel on My Knees, Lent. Those are the classes coming up for you beginning this fall!
And, we are holding a community visioning session on October 22. This is in advance of our annual community wide meeting, where we give you the State of the Center reports, but I’m a so excited about our session on October 22! This is your opportunity to join us and have a say in how you want YOUR spiritual community to look and feel. Think out of the box for Sunday formats! And so much more to be revealed when you show up and provide your input. You may or may not know that Ernest Holmes did not initially envision that we be a churchy type of organization. Nor do I. And studies show, as does the chatter amongst people who like to chat about such things, that church attendance is at an all time low, and getting lower. So we…the Core Council and I, are thinking in terms of Un-Church. A spiritual community yes. Church? Not so much. But after that, we would like your input as to how that would look and feel. So I hope you will join us on October 22. Meanwhile, be thinking about it. What excites YOU about being a member of a spiritual community? I look forward to hearing from you!
Have you noticed a bit of a nip in the air, or that the leaves on some of the trees are already changing? I have, and I’m excited for the prospect of an early fall, and perhaps a big winter signalling the end of this drought we are having. And…I’m excited for fall because fall means all kinds of new and wonderful stuff going on at the Center!
I hope you are having a great summer, and while it isn’t quite time yet to put away the summer clothes and toys, it might be time to begin thinking about how you might like to shift an area of your life. Whether it is an inner shift or an outer one, what I’ve discovered is that all outer shifts happen first on the inside. And I’ve also discovered that taking a class or workshop at the Center for Spiritual Living has always, without exception, facilitated such shifts inside myself.
Consequently, we are kicking around some ideas about what classes to hold for you in the fall. How would you like to learn about how to interpret the Bible metaphysically? There is incredible wisdom in the Bible, but it isn’t always easy to access, especially with all the literal interpretations floating around. Or perhaps you would be interested in up-leveling your abundance quotient by taking Prosperity Plus Two? Or maybe something else is coming up for you?
We want to hear from you. What classes or workshops would you love to take? Let us know! In the meantime, here’s what is happening right now at the Center for Spiritual Living Carson City:
