July 2009 - “Soular” Power
As the summer sun continues to heat up our city with its solar power, we will spend the month of July exploring the idea of our “Soular” Power, the power of the Ever-Present Spirit that lives within each and every one of us. This month we will tap into “the energy by which everything lives” (to quote Ernest Holmes) that is found deep within our souls.
Talk 1 - Power v. Force
Inspired by the book of the same name by Dr. David Hawkins, today we will explore the difference between connecting with the power inherent within our souls and. forcing the world to be as we think it should.
Talk 2 - Power in Asking – Permission Granted
In the Ancient Scripture we read, “ask and you shall receive.” We’ve all heard that before, and we may have interpreted it to mean beg God in prayer. Today, we will deepen our understanding of asking and see how the act of asking opens up a place of allowing within us, thereby activating the energy of creation.
Talk 3 - Power Attitudes
Wayne Dyer in his book, “The Power of Intention,” gives a portrait of a person connected to the field of intention. This person has six powerful attitudes that enable him or her to align with the pure potentiality available to all. Today, you will learn how to be one of those people.
Talk 4 - The Power of Education
[Minister’s Note: I prearranged to have two students give 3-5 minute testimonials on the power of their spiritual education gained at our center. The conclusion of the talk was a Power Point presentation that another student from our basic, foundational class had done as his final project. We also highlighted all of our fall classes in our fellowship hall after the service, having tables for each class set up with the instructors present to answer questions. We created an education survey to see what types of future classes people wanted and gave each one who turned in the survey that day a gift of bookmark with our logo on it.]
This Sunday we devote the entire service to the Power of Education and honor all students who have graduated from our center in the past year. But, don’t let this topic fool you. It won’t be dull and academic. Rather, this morning promises to be filled with inspiration, love and Soul Power!
