January's Value: Spiritual Living, a Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

As we learn and practice our philosophy, the Science of Mind, we live principle-centered, Spirit-led lives and turn to our principles for guidance in all moments and all areas of our lives.

Spirituality may be defined as an atmosphere of good, the realization of God. It cannot—and does not—borrow its light from another, no matter how great or noble that other may be. It springs from within, coming from that never-failing fountain of life, which quenches every thirst, whose Source is in eternity; the well-spring of self-existence. It is a revelation of the self to the self, putting one back on the track of his own self-dependence on Spirit, his own at-one-ment with Reality.

How do you define your spirituality?

Science of Mind Magazine monthly themes for 2017 will closely match the monthly themes for the values-based, spiritual living in 2017.

Values-Based Spiritual Living Banners for Your Center

Greetings from the Cold White North;

Hope you are in good health and happily enjoying your new and much more prosperous ministries.

When I had the idea to offer theme banners to other centers, little did I know (this is all new to me as well) the challenges we would have just getting artwork to play fair. Not so much.
Therefore we have changed our offering from the San Jose example to one which is similar as well as one completely different.

In the flyer you will notice we have other offerings as well.  We have used these banners with a great deal of success in the center as well as out at other functions. The “Change your thinking….” pair attracted a significant number of inquiries from folks at the events, many of which have come to the center on Sundays. The “Finally” pair is a brand new creation which came out of a visioning exercise.

If you would like the monthly theme in posters (24x36) we can accommodate that request as well.

On the cover page I mentioned MOEC, our intention is to forward 10% of our revenues to support this fabulous gift to ministers.

Thank you for your joyous service.

Much love,

Transition Specialist

Centers for Spiritual Living - 2017: Values-Based Spiritual Living - Vision and Planning Process

2017:  Values-Based Spiritual Living - Vision and Planning Process

The Cultural Integrity and Evolution committee is proposing another voluntary grassroots theme for 2017 of Values-Based Spiritual Living.  The theme is based on the our organization’s values stated in our Organizational Design Model.  These monthly values focuses are being presented in collaboration with Science of Mind Magazine.  See the Monthly Themes Overview for the complete year program.

As we plan for 2017, the committee recommends that Centers and groups with Centers for Spiritual Living engage in a creative and visionary process:

  • Invite a groups of people, between 12 and 48 is ideal, to participate.  
  • Print out the 12 month’s themes on 11x17 paper and ask people to self select which page they want to work on.  
  • Ask them to evenly divide themselves so that each page has an equal number of participants.  
  • Print out the directions on 8.5x11 paper and give each one to each group.  After adequate time has passed for each group to complete their assignment, ask for a spokes person to give a brief report on their process and results.  
  • Invite someone to type up the results of all 12 pages and share the results with this committee if you choose.

Here is how Santa Rosa has started to vision and plan with Practitioners.  Next is with the general community.  We are encouraging the Ministers, Leadership Lay Person and Practitioner Councils of our movement to do the same, and we are encouraging local Centers to do the same.

Eventually, we will enroll ministers to create suggested content resources to share with everyone.

Outreach Minsitry - Go Team from Guidance Church

Dear Santa Rosa, Center for Spiritual Living members,

We want you all to know how gratefully appreciative we are for being selected for the monthly love tokens that you are sending us throughout 2016 for feeding the homeless communities. 

It is unfortunate that we cannot be with you today, however we wish to tell you a little bit about who we are and what we have accomplished in the communities that we serve.

Our ministry was established in 2006 for the express reason for feeding the homeless and providing prayers of encouragement with comfort, love and respect.   Our mission is to strive to be a beacon of light in our community and the homeless community by meeting human needs and being an open-door church actively reaching out and welcoming all persons.  In order to achieve this mission, we provide food, clothing and other essential items to the homeless and less fortunate.  We exist by carrying God’s words of love, giving and serving by a committed group of people that fellowship with the homeless. 

With the monthly love tokens that we receive from your church, we purchase additional food, fresh fruit and water to reach more people.

We partner with other non-profit agencies that provide health fairs for HIV/AIDS testing, blood pressure and diabetic checks and more.  We participate in the annual peace and non-violence season programs and the annual walks.  We also opened our doors to sponsor Open Mike Night for young artist to display their talents for however wished to attend. 

We continue to look for new ideas on how to improve and expand our services to the homeless.  We do hope that you will enjoy the picture slide show that we have sent you. 

If you wish to secure our mission statement, please contact Jerry Huffaker or Georgett Eggel.

Again, we are forever grateful to you all and we all bid you peace, love and light in your lives.

The Guidance Outreach, GO TEAM, Ministry
