This Sunday

Spiritual Strength

Sunday, 2/17, 10:00 am

With Rev. John Riley and music by Margo LeDuc with Russell Norman on piano, and Ron E. Beck on drums.

I AM EMPOWERED BY DIVINE STRENGTH. When I trust in divine strength, I am poised and self-confident. I am blessed and I bless others. My inner strength soothes and calms those around me. Conflicts or drama yield to the power of Spirit. I am a beneficial presence in the world.

Upcoming Guest Speakers

Jan Garrett & JD Martin

Sunday, 2/24, 10:00 am

Jan & JD love bringing things together: Musical styles, spiritual and philosophical perspectives, and most importantly, people. Both are consummate musicians, performers, and songwriters in their own right, with long and illustrious individual careers. The big magic happens when they come together.

Jan Garrett and JD Martin are multi-award-winning singer-songwriters who live and create their music in the mountains of Colorado near Aspen. Both are seasoned performers and creative guides who teach with a twinkle, and inspire by example. They call their 23-year partnership “The Heart of Harmony” not only because they are happily married (to each other) but because they get to write, record, sing, and play their music for appreciative audiences around the country, and beyond. Their music is rich and intelligent, a velvet-hammer wake-up call as satisfying to the soul as it is to the ear…songs to open the heart and refresh the spirit. Visit garrett-martin.com.

A Consciousness of Lovewith Rev. John Riley

A Consciousness of Love
with Rev. John Riley

Love is the completeness of life. It is the great harmonizing principle that joins together the universe and everything in it. I AM that love expressing in and through and as my loving heart.

Radical Gratitude
with Rev. John Riley

The attitude of thankfulness and gratitude causes one to open his consciousness to the inflow of more blessings. This attitude of mind causes one’s blessings to increase. The thankful person always attracts more and more of the thing for which he is grateful. I give thanks for every evidence of the divine flow of Good in my life.

One Voice for Unity
with Rev. John Riley

There is order in the universe and in every cell,
From the colors of a rainbow to patters in a shell.

There is harmony and rhythm and music to be heard.
Let us stop and listen to the message of the word.

A Center of Spirit
with Rev. John Riley

There is only One Presence and One Power active in the Universe and in my life, God the Omnipotence. We come together to share this experience and to awaken to our spiritual magnificence!

Seeds Of Intention with Rev. John Riley

Planting seeds of goodness and acting with the highest intention of my heart, I bring balance to my life. My actions spring from interconnection, kinship, and love.

Circuit Breaker For The Soul with Rev. John Riley

Living in our fast-paced world filled with the barrage of news, social media, and the demands of work, family, and even retirement, we may feel off-balance at times. When that happens, it’s time to flip our internal circuit breaker and reground ourselves in Source.

Blessing You with Rev. John Riley

Oneness is reality. The boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature, is illusion. A blessing is an imparting of spiritual good, and to be a blessing is to be a beacon that shines forward hope, faith, and wisdom. I allow the inner light of Spirit to guide me that I may bring light to those around me.

Make Up Your Mind with Rev. John Riley

The “I” that thinks has the capacity to think what it wants to think, and I decide to think positively and creatively. I get the wrinkles out of my mind. I get myself thinking organized and orderly.I make up my mind, then I go out and face the world, secure in knowing that no matter what happens, I can be on top of it.

A Fuller Life with Rev. John Riley

The movement of Spirit from within me out into my words and actions is an expression of my spirituality. When I am fully experiencing the reality of my spiritual nature, my life is indeed full – full with the presence of God and full with the expression of the sacred attributes. Expressing my spirituality, I give more in life and receive more from life.
