Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on mid-noon, and under every deep a lower deep opens. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Circles”
As we complete the year of 2021, we realize that the ending of these past twelve months opens the way for us to enter into a New Year, inspired with infinite possibilities for greater health and wellbeing in every area of our lives and a deeper connection with God, the Source of all. As Ernest Holmes states in the first introductory chapter of the Science of Mind, p. 27, “. . . God is in, through, around and for us.”
Releasing the past with love and gratitude, we embrace the New Reality for an inspired future that we, individually and collectively, are co-creating. We are serious about “A World That Works for All” and willing and able to do our part in consciousness to bring it about . . . sooner, rather than later. As there is neither time nor space in the Mind of God, so we do our spiritual work “At the corner of Here and Now!” We can do this together, so let’s begin.
If you were not present with us for our Annual Winter Solstice, “Nurturing Night; Loving the Light,” you may experience it from your own home at any time by going to our website www.cslphilly.org Click on the “watch live” button, as it is archived there.
We love being with each other again in person for our Sunday morning Celebrations at 10:30 A.M., as everyone follows CDC recommendations for safety and wellbeing, which includes wearing masks indoors and staying socially distanced. Our Practitioner of the Day holds a brief meditation at 10:00 A.M. each Sunday in the “Upper Room.” Our topic the first Sunday in January is, “All Directions Point to God.” You may tune in virtually by going to our website. Monday through Friday’s daily “Love Notes” given by Rev. Mike and me, are archived there, as well as past gatherings and upcoming events.
We would love to see you this Friday, December 31st at 6:45 A.M., as we complete the year together in loving and mindful ways, gathering at the Center for a World-Wide Peace Meditation that begins promptly at 7:00, facilitated by Rev. Mike, and followed by breakfast at a nearby restaurant for all the wise people who choose to join us!
You will find our qualified and caring Practitioners and Intern on the Practitioner Page of our website. Connect with any one of them to help you work through whatever challenges you may be facing or to assist you in realizing your greater dreams.
Let’s wrap up this year with gratitude for gifts received, as we release it with love and enter into a confident sense of cheerful expectancy for what is yet to come.
