Life: The animating Principle of Being . . . that Inner Something that makes everything live. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 606

There is One Life; that Life is God’s Life; that Life is your Life and my Life now! Let’s dive more deeply into that animating Presence, allow ourselves to feel renewed each day, and live our lives to the fullest. We know we are inspired, encouraged, and guided by the Indwelling Wisdom, animated by Infinite Energy, and expanded every moment into successful exploration of intriguing realms of opportunity.

Let’s continue stepping into larger, deeper, wider circles of living, as we acknowledge and invite the animating Spirit within us to lead us into greater expressions of aliveness. There is no limit to the fulness of Life that is available to us all. God is Infinite Life, and each of us is a unique and beautiful individualization of that Life . . . so let’s live it!

Something wonderful happens each Sunday morning at 10:30 A.M., as we live stream our Morning Celebration from the Inspiration Café in Paoli, Pennsylvania and you are always invited to join us. As you go to our website, just select either Facebook or YouTube to watch and listen. Our new theme for the month of September is, “Live, Love, Learn: Repeat” and this week’s talk will be, “Step into Life.” Click on the orange “Watch Live” button, and later check the Events Page, the Practitioner Page, and look for archived Sunday Celebrations and Love Notes.

Our Licensed Practitioners are available to assist you in working through any challenge or simply to deepen faith and expand consciousness. Look for their information on the website and select any of them to utilize spiritual tools to resolve human problems.

With great love and respect,

Dr. Maxine


What we now experience we may cease experiencing if we have the will and the imagination to set our vision in an opposite direction and hold it there. ~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 418

We know that our perspective determines our consciousness of “heaven” or “hell” here on earth, and that most of us have dwelt in both “places.” The great news is that it is always possible, although not necessarily easy, to make a different choice. We live fully in peace and freedom when we do not permit ourselves to become dragged down into personal challenges or world situations. This is not to say these do not exist, but the truth is that such external conditions have no power of their own and are as fleeting as we allow them to be.

Granted, there are grave concerns on the planet at this time, and it can “feel like hell” if we allow our attention to become excessively focused on the relative world. A major shift in our intention to reveal a greater truth truly can begin bringing heaven to earth. I love Rickie Byars’ song, “I’m Choosing Heaven Today” and suggest we all make that wise and wonderful choice.

Each Sunday morning at 10:30 A.M., you may participate in our Morning Celebrations livestreamed from the Inspiration Café in Paoli, Pennsylvania, selecting either Facebook or YouTube to watch and listen. The theme for the month of August is, “Loving the World to Wholeness,” and this week’s topic will be, “Heaven Here and Now.” Simply go to our website, and click on the orange “Watch Live” button. Also check the Events Page, the Practitioner Page, and look for archived Sunday Celebrations and Love Notes.

You may reach out for spiritual support any time by accessing our Practitioners information on the website and choosing to work with any one of them. They use spiritual tools to help you move through any human problem. No matter the question, God is always the answer!

With great love and respect,

Aug, 2022: August BoT SPOT

Welcome to GPCSL’s August BoT SPOT!

We sure hope you all are enjoying your summer. These dog days of summer are filled with lots of fun activities, so we want to send a special thank you to all our GPCSL members and friends for joining us each Sunday for our Sunday Celebration livestream and various classes. Also, a huge shout out to all of you who have been able to join us for our in-person events!!!

Our picnic last month was well attended, the food was AMAZING, and wasn’t it so nice to share time and space together?

We will continue to livestream each Sunday while also planning at least one in-person event or Sunday Celebration per month. Next up? Glad you asked! 

On Saturday, August 20th at 10:30 A.M. we will enjoy a Labyrinth Walk for Peace in Fort Washington, PA. These walks are a new experience to me, but I must say I felt the power and possibility for deep awakening the very first time. So, I encourage you to join us!!! Afterwards, consider joining us in a casual lunch nearby. All are welcome! Click here to register to attend.

Looking a bit forward to September (I know…already???), we will be holding another in-person “Affirmative Prayer in the Open Air” Sunday Celebration on Sunday, September 18 at 10:30 A.M. followed by a social hour with coffee and goodies at the Wilson Farm Park in Chesterbrook, PA.  Click here for details:  In-Person Sunday Celebration at Wilson Farm Park Pavilion, Chesterbrook (

Don’t forget to view the Thursday GPCSL informative email each week…it is chockful of details on upcoming classes, Sunday Celebrations, and in-person events!

With love and deep appreciation

This awakening is a process of evolution, a little here and a little there, until the whole eye is opened and we see that life is neither separate from God nor different from God. ~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 487

We travel this path of spiritual evolution at our own rate and in the way that is most suited to us along each step of the journey.  Not only individuals, but the entire human race, moves through various “kingdoms of consciousness” until the Light Truth dawns that we already one with the One.  The highways and byways of our exploration are necessary to this ultimate discovery, and it can be helpful to understand the various stages of growth that take us to this spiritual awareness.

Rather than entering into discouragement or disparagement when we feel ourselves  somehow lagging in our progress, let’s realize each step in our forward movement is necessary and appropriate.   We may honor and appreciate our current place in consciousness, learn and grow through it, and take the next opportunity to move closer to our Divine Reality.

Join us every Sunday morning at 10:30 A.M., and invite your friends to experience our live stream Celebration from the Inspiration Café in Paoli. The theme for the month of August is, “Loving the World to Wholeness,” and this week’s topic will be, “From Four Kingdoms to One.” When you go to our website, click on the orange “Watch Live” button, and you will be taken to our YouTube channel or click here for our Facebook page. Looking through the other pages on this site, you’ll find Events, archived Sunday Celebrations and Love Notes, and many other interesting pages.

Although we are all “practitioners” when we employ the principles of this teaching, we may find ourselves too close to a life challenge to deal with it alone. This is the time to reach out for spiritual support, and our Professional Practitioners are ready and willing to help you move to a deeper understanding and higher consciousness.  You will find  them on the Practitioner Page of our website.

With great love and respect,

Dr. Maxine

The Original Substance takes many forms; multiplicity, or many, within unity, or the One.  ~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 493
How many beautiful flowers grow and flourish in God’s Garden! Each of us came forth from the One Life, infused with the qualities of Spirit, moving along our individual evolutionary paths, and imbued with particular gifts to enjoy and to share with others. This is true of all sentient beings, and it is a wondrous thing to behold our unity while celebrating the rich and varied ways that Life finds ways to express.
No one came into this world without purpose, and it can take some time to become acquainted with the unique and essential ways in which we may add to the beauty of humanity.  As we bring our own Authentic Self to the world and rejoice in the special qualities within others, we discover and cherish our Oneness with Spirit and each other. Let’s look more deeply into our spiritual nature, appreciate and respect everyone’s uniqueness, and simply, “Let God be God in us!”
Every Sunday at 10:30 A.M., we stream our morning Celebration from the Inspiration Café in Paoli. The theme for the month of August is, “Loving the World to Wholeness,” and this week’s topic will be, “Unity in Multiplicity.” Just go to our website, and click on the orange “Watch Live” button, you will be taken to our YouTube channel or click here for our Facebook page. Be sure to take a look at the other pages on this site, including Events, archived Sunday Celebrations, and Love Notes Rev. Mike and I send during the week.
Whenever there is a need for spiritual support, our Professional Practitioners stand by to work with you, using spiritual principles to address human conditions. You may find them listed on the Practitioner Page of our website and reach out to any of them for compassionate assistance.
With great love and respect,
Dr. Maxine
