May 5 – Connect: The Five Pillars of Spirituality with Rev. Libby
This Sunday we begin a six week Sacred Circles Series based on a workbook written by some of our Center for Spiritual Living ministers. It is called The Five Pillars of Spirituality and is all about developing a spiritual life uniquely designed by you and for you. Join a circle and get a workbook – begin to discover the five basic practices of Science of Mind and how they can assist you in leading a richer life.
“Many people feel a deep longing for something more than a well-balanced life. It is as if some significant component of their being is not finding expression – that of living a spiritual life. Living a spiritual life in today's contemporary world can be a challenge. Not everybody can retire to a mountaintop or spend many hours every day in devotional practices. For the average person, a straightforward guide to incorporating spiritual practices in everyday life must take into consideration the fast pace of modern living within the ordinary demands of career, family, and recreation.” From The Five Pillars of Spirituality by Rev. Dr. Edward Viljoen and Rev. Joyce Duffala.
May 12 – Connect Through Study: Awakening to Meaning with Rev. Libby
“How to live a spiritual life, or what spiritual practices to do, is not generally taught in school. Although some of us were raised in spiritual traditions, often these traditions were not well explained by our families, or these practices don’t seem to satisfy us now as adults. Spiritual Study is the intentional exploration of the thoughts, beliefs, and ideas of others in order to clarify our understanding, expand our awareness, and deepen personal meaning of the Divine.” From The Five Pillars of Spirituality by Rev. Dr. Edward Viljoen and Rev. Joyce Duffala.
May 19- Engage Through Prayer: Communion with the Divine with Rev. Libby
“In writing to the group of Christians in Thessalonica in Macedonia, Paul told them to “pray without ceasing.” Although this sounds like a command, it is really a statement of truth, for there is a way in which all of us already are praying unceasingly. This is because all of our thoughts – all of the time – have a creative role in shaping our experiences and our conditions.” From The Five Pillars of Spirituality by Rev. Dr. Edward Viljoen and Rev. Joyce Duffala.
May 26 – Engage Through Meditation with Rev. Libby
“Of the five spiritual practices, meditation is the most receptive. It is not mentally active in the way that study is active; nor is it mentally directive, in the way that prayer serves to direct our thoughts. If meditation resembled any activity, it would be the activity of listening. If it required any action, it would be the action of surrender, for meditation is the practice of allowing emptiness to permeate the mind. Meditation can also be described as the state of awareness and experience of freedom that rises up in the absence of thoughts, feelings, or expectations.” From The Five Pillars of Spirituality by Rev. Dr. Edward Viljoen and Rev. Joyce Duffala
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
