T he Love of the All Good is within me and through me. That Love goes out to meet all who come into my atmosphere. It radiates to all and is flowing through all. My Love within me is perfect. Thy Love within me is perfect. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 522
Now that we are happily in the midst of the holidays (and I trust it is “happily” and not “haphazardly”) we do well to remember that these truly are Holy Days. They are made Holy by our clear intention to bring more authentic love into our lives and into the world. As His Holiness, the Dalai Lama proclaims, “Be kind whenever possible, and it is always possible.” Whether standing in line at the Post Office, picking up last minute gifts, interacting with a clerk, or passing by a neighbor’s house, we are always able to smile, share a kind word, ask a compassionate question, or offer support.
When Love becomes our main objective, It guides us in every wholesome direction, teaching us how to lift hearts and heal minds. It is not a commodity to be attained but a way of life to be lived, expanding our own awareness of the Beloved which indwells us and every sentient being, and inviting Its increase and healthy flow. This is often called, “The Season of Love,” as it is the time of year we love giving gifts, and the greatest of these gifts, most certainly, is Love.
Be with us for our virtual Sunday Celebrations, beginning at 10:30 A.M., as we live stream our weekly gathering. Our theme for the month is, “Celebrate Everything,” and this week’s talk is, “The Season of Love.” Simply log on to our website, www.cslphilly.org and you’ll be directed to You Tube or Facebook. Archived Sunday Celebrations and Rev. Mike’s and my daily “Love Notes” may be seen at any time via the Live Stream button.
Each year, our Winter Solstice Celebration has been one of our most cherished events, and, this year, we are going virtual! Join us on the actual date, Monday, December 21st at 7:00 P.M. for “Virtual Winter Solstice Celebration 2020: Bless the Darkness; Invite the Light.” Presenters from major faith traditions join with people from our Beloved Community, along with musicians, such as Daniel Nahmod, to bring to you one of the most outstanding celebrations we have yet experienced. By Saturday, the direct link will be available on our website; in the meantime, check out the flyer on our Calendar of Events for more information.
Consider reaching out to our Practitioners and Practitioner Interns for spiritual support, whatever your need may be. Their information is also on the website. They will provide spiritual mind treatment, and work with you in confidence and professionalism.
With great love and respect,
