CONCORDIA CENTER FOR SPIRITUAL LIVING CELEBRATION SERVICE May 14, 2017
May: Spiritual Living through Creativity “We allow the ongoing activity of Spirit into our hearts, minds and activities to bring forth new forms and expressions to inspire and guide.” CCSL Lesson: Today and every day, open your heart fully to Love God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. - Rudyard Kipling The relationship between an individual and God is closer than his relationship with his own mother. It is like reaching out and feeling a presence always there, gentle, reassuring in its very quietness; it is joy, peace, and warmth. - Joel Goldsmith, The Art of Meditation, p. 35 And the great love that God has for you is bigger than all the bad things you’ve ever done in your life and all the bad things that have been done to you. - Edwene Gaines, The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, p. 150 In the mind principle, there is no time or space. It is the same mind that operates through your mother no matter where she may be. - Dr. Joseph Murphy, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, p. 72A mother’s love, so infinitely tender, so unfailing, is God’s love, only manifested in greater degree by the mother. - H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth, p. 18 The ancients called this Law the “Feminine.” Realizing that there must be an active, energizing principle which is God (the Masculine), they also recognized that there must be a creative principle in nature (which they spoke of as Feminine), whose business it is to receive God’s thought and bring it into creation. (p. 63.3) – Holmes
