September 2014 Theme – Returning Home
As we walk this journey in life, we can, at times, be tossed and turned by conditions and circumstances. We can, occasionally, get thrown off course and lose our way. We can, now and again, forget who we are. Has anything like that ever happened to you? If it has, then this month will serve you in a profound way as we Return Home, home to the Source of All Good.
September 2014, Talk 1 –“Returning Home to the Changeless”
Today, we build our foundation for handling change—any kind of change, whether it’s the type of change that causes us to say “Thank Goodness” or “Goodness, No!” Using Jesus’ analogy of the man who built his house on solid rock, we return home to the ever-present, unchanging Power of God.
September 2014, Talk 2 – “Returning Home to Peace”
In today’s world, there is a lot of talk about peace. Actually, there is a lot of talk about the absence of peace and the turmoil that surrounds us. These conversations are often accompanied by blame of corporations, countries, governments or rebel factions for being the cause. But is that true? As spiritual people, we know intellectually that peace begins with us, but do we actually live that it our hearts? Today, we return home to Peace with some powerful ideas and practices that will live long past today’s service.
September 2014, Talk 3 – “Returning Home in Faith”
[Ministers’ Note: See the last point of the talk for a demonstration which will need to be set up ahead of time.]
We could all benefit by returning home in faith, couldn’t we? The real question is: faith in WHAT? We all have a lot of faith, but in what do we have faith? Often times, especially in challenging times, our faith in misplaced. Today, we return home to a faith in the beneficence of God, in the Unity of all life and in the integrity of the Universe. Come today and test your faith!
September 2014, Talk 4 – “Returning Home to Truth”
We round out our month of Returning Home by returning home to Truth, the Spiritual Truth that when we keep our eyes lifted to Spirit we can create miracles, we can attain lofty goals and dreams and we can create day-to-day lives that simply work better!
Today I return home to the Divine that I am as I see beyond appearances and see only God in all situations. I return home to the knowing that God is the Source of all my Good. Today, I return home to Truth.
