CONCORDIA CENTER FOR SPIRITUAL LIVING CELEBRATION SERVICE May 28, 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.”
CSL Theme: LEAP – From Planning to Action CCSL Lesson: Let’s travel across the Bridge from fear to FAITH Lesson By: Rev Ian Taylor
IDEAS FOR DAILY LIVING: “I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn't fail, The same four walls of busy work were really more like a jail” - Anonymous “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” Paul exclaimed. It would be difficult to find a better explanation of faith. . .. It is evidence in that it produces a practical result. It is substance in that it can take form in our affairs. – Ernest Holmes; “Words That Heal Today” Religious Science translates physical form into mental and spiritual causation. It does not do this by denying the form, but through a right interpretation of it. The visible is an evidence of the invisible. The invisible is the cause, the visible is the effect. (p. 32.2) - Ernest Holmes; “What Religious Science Teaches” “Until one is committed there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back” - W.H. Murray
