Reimagining Relationships

In this Sunday lesson, we honor our Fathers and all that they mean to us. Dads come in all shapes and sizes with differing personalities, gifts, and talents. Our Fathers were shaped by culture, genetics, and expectations. Being a Father is not always easy. There is no handbook, just lots of opinions about who we think they should be. This Sunday we want to say thank you, Dad.  We continue our discussion about imagination and how we can use it in all our relationships. What kind of relationship can…

Imagination: Romancing The Spirit, Part 2

Using imagination, we can contemplate and consider what it would be like to feel totally loved. Imagine yourself taking a shower or bath in love’s awareness. These images connect us with feelings that lead to the reality and experience of love. To really be loved you have to be able to imagine the possibility of it, which is what opens the door to it. We often imagine ourselves without love and create feelings of loneliness and separation that generate that same experience in the…

Imagination: Romancing The Spirit

“Imagination is the eye of the soul.” Joseph Joubert According to the dictionary, imagination is ‘The faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images, or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.’ and ‘The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.’ Every romance novel was created through the imagination of the mind of the author. Writers are always creating something that was not there before, something that cannot be touched and seen, and so it makes…

Law Of Mind Action

What is the law of mind action?  It is an idea that is also called the law of attraction.  The concept behind this principle is that what we resonate with, we create for our lives.  How we think and feel about life and our world affects how we experience it.  This is a universal law that works exactly the same for every person. It reflects back to us what we keep putting out on a regular basis.   This law is…

An Interview With Mom

“Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”   ~ Proverbs 31:31  All that I am, or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.  ~Abraham Lincoln There is no role in life that is more essential than that of motherhood. ~Elder M. Russell Ballard Mother’s love is peace and It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. ~ Erich Fromm  If love is as sweet…

What Was The Secret of Samson’s Hair?

Charles Fillmore identified strength as one of the innate powers that human beings possess and Samson was a good example of this inner power in the physical sense. The story of Samson is similar to the personal journey of every one of us. In this lesson, we mine the nuggets of truth of this well known story and discover why long hair is spiritually very wise!

Celebrating The Natural Self

There is something truly calming and peaceful about being in nature and appreciating its beauty. It is hard to look at a blooming new flower, growing fruit on a tree, or birds in their nest and not see the divinity that is there. It is so comforting to recall all of the ways that the creation provides for us.  From the smallest detail of an oak leaf, to the countless stars in the sky, all of nature was created to reveal…

Q & A Sunday

We opened it up for your questions and here is what was asked: Using UCG’s Mission Statement as your own personal mission statement:“I am a haven of peace where everyone is loved and empowered through my practice of positive and practical spirituality in order that I may help heal the illusion of separation.”

Celebrating Resurrection!

The word resurrection means to stand up right again.  The seed of resurrection has been planted in every one of us.  Just like the spring flowers rise again after a long winters nap, so also does humanity awaken from it’s slumbering.   The life of Jesus is reflective of the journey of humankind.  Even in death, Jesus taught us that life goes on and never ends.

Celebrating The New Humanity

Charles Fillmore taught us that the Bible is the story of humanity’s journey. The Hebrew Bible is the story of the up and down journey of human beings, rising and falling, loving and forgiving, remembering and forgetting. This epic journey has been long over thousands of years, maybe longer. What is the end game? What is the point? What is the plan? This Palm Sunday lesson explores these questions.

Transformation: Growing Through Your Gethsemane Experience

Do you ever find yourself asking, “I’m doing everything I know to do so why am I experiencing this”? Jesus rode triumphantly into the city of Jerusalem and there was a great celebration but shortly thereafter, he would go through an experience that would push him to do the hardest work of his life – he would have to deal with making a choice about whether or not to face his own destiny. It was his dark night of the…

Transformation: Expressing Your Charisma

Did you know that everyone has been endowed with gifts, talents, and abilities? We all have something to contribute to the world around us. We have been given a “charisma”, which is the Greek word for a special grace. It is your and my responsibility to uncover and align with that special grace within.  We believe the world would be a more harmonious place if everyone was sharing their true individual gifts. In this enlightening discussion we learn how to express our charisma!
