The Mystical Path: A Blending of Two Worlds
06/10/2018 by Reverend Miara Wiltshire
The mystical journey is one of conscious awakening to the Kingdom of God that lies within, while we are actively involved in life here on earth. It becomes our privilege and blessing to witness the blending of these the two worlds into one beautiful expression. The journey is not an easy one, nor does it always look perfect from the outside. But, as we go we learn to trust that God is watching, waiting and guiding us, and thus we continue with faith. Dr. Stephen Isaac has said that the important thing is to begin now, right where we are, not waiting so much as a minute, and never being stopped from starting just because we have so far to go.
The Never-Ending Bloom of the Soul: Reincarnations Treasures
06/03/2018 by Dan Willis
There is a continuity of life and an endlessness of being that enables our spiritual evolutionary process to flower and unfold. When Christianity includes this teaching, as it does in the esoteric and mystical expressions, we discover that life has a plan. That plan is purposeful, it is exciting, it is adventuresome, it is glorious and it is a shining purpose. Discover the treasures reincarnation offers us.
Spiritually Meeting Aging and Transition Christ-Given
05/27/2018 by Reverend Blake Isaac
No matter our time upon this earth, does each year find us living more Christ-given? This simply means more consciously and at one with God. We know we do not take our physical bodies with us at the end of this incarnation, but what about the state of our consciousness? How do we view God? How do we view heaven? This talk explores this idea of consciousness and ways to keep us spiritually youthful and holy expectant all our days.
The Power of Pentecost: Then and Now
05/20/2018 by Reverend Hal A. Lingerman
With Christ and the Holy Spirit, we must come to know ourselves spiritually. We can never depend on our personality selves, so we must transcend them, becoming aligned to the Truth within us. We must also come to know ourselves in the world. After being invested in meditation and prayer by the living currents of the Everlasting Self which enshrines us, how are we then in the world? Do we take that Self with us, living through us, raising, transmuting, refining, cleansing and elevating our consciousness, our emotions, our energies always? Finally, facing the testings of the world, have we learned to stand unmoved as our Lord was unmoved, calm and uncomplaining in the throngs? We pray for all persons everywhere to be spiritualized, that they will become more whole. Then perhaps we shall be ready for the Christing of our nature.

Hope Springs Eternal
05/06/2018 by Reverend Felice Reynolds
Hope is the desire, the motivation, that propels us forward each day. When we put our hope in God, we are relying on the Divine Source of all Life to supply our every need. We can envision this ongoing energy bubbling up within us so that we are eternally blessed by our Creator.
Finding The Courage To Face Our Fears
04/29/2018 by Merrily Boult
Fear is often one of the major roadblocks keeping us from moving forward in our lives. Whether these fears are real or imagined, the debilitating effects of this emotion are real. This sharing will explore ways in which we can find the courage to face our fears, and break through the barriers they create, so that we may continue to climb up the path of growth our soul desires in order to draw closer to God.
Our Mystical Connection with All Life
04/22/2018 by Reverend Lucy Wold
Mystics, sages, and indigenous peoples have always known of our Oneness with all Life. Much of humankind moved away from this inner connection when two Industrial Revolutions and the Age of Enlightenment took our world in a whole new direction toward separation, individuality, and Survival of the Fittest. A new scientific understanding of our inner connection came to Light with the discovery of Quantum Physics and a cosmic field that binds all life together. Let's explore this new paradigm that merges science with Flower's teachings and the wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions.
Rooting Out Self-criticism, Creating Path of Presence
04/15/2018 by Reverend Miara Wiltshire
For many of us, self-criticism is a deeply rooted pattern and if left unchanged it can become crippling and steer us off the Path towards wholeness. When we are able to free ourselves from this type of negativity, the atmosphere of our life becomes lighter, more joyous and more productive. Flower tells us to, uproot unpleasant impressions until there are none left to torment you. And, that when we do, we will be freed and maturely able to enjoy our conscious return to God.
The Transforming Power of Christ
04/08/2018 by Reverend Elizabeth Wood
One of the main functions of the Christ is that of transformation. After the crucifixion and resurrection many transformations took place among the Disciples and Apostles, but many of the lives of His adversaries were also transformed. When people awakened to the reality of the Christ, they were forever changed. II Cor. 5:17 states this so well: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
