The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!

There is a natural tendency we all have to look at a beautiful creation and appreciate it, but to forget how it came about. We forget about the dream from which it came. We forget that the creative process is very often a process of growth, an unfolding of a powerful idea that may have […]

The Source of the Word “Heal” – Rev. Paul Gonyea

The source of the word “heal” is the same as for the word “whole.” It means “to bring together.” We heal a wound by bringing the flesh together until it becomes one again. We heal conflict, or lack, or anger or hatred or despair, by bringing together our spiritual awareness of the Truth with our […]

The Infinite Power of Life is Constantly Expressing

The Infinite Power of Life is constantly expressing; it is constantly creating. Dr. Holmes writes, “The Divine Plan is one of Freedom.” We are a part of that plan. The freedom to choose how Life will express Itself through us is the greatest power we have. When we hear that we have been endowed by […]

A God Thing- Rev Angela Harmon

A God Thing! Is what Denise (Niecey) Barbin called our encounter on Tuesday, Feb 10th, 2015. It was making my monthly visit to Durham to visit the client face to face as I’ve been doing the past couple of years. I like the first week of the month but can vary from time to time. […]

The Human Package -Rev. Paul Gonyea

That means they were given to us as part of our “human package” when we showed up here. But it also means that we have to maintain our spiritual awareness in […]

What the Buddha Says! – Rev. Paul Gonyea

The Buddha said that we need three things in order to become “enlightened.” This master teacher, one of many who have lived through the centuries, said that every one of us needs a teacher, a teaching and a community. A teacher helps us to know our own strengths. A teaching gives us a stable framework […]

A Wide Range of Choices – Rev. Paul Gonyea

  Every day we are offered a wide range of choices that are filled with the beauty of life. We can choose to drive on the road less travelled. We can choose to look at the sunset instead of the evening news. We can listen to the laughter of children instead of the anger of […]

The Creative Process – Rev. Paul Gonyea

The Daffodil Principle – Rev. Paul Gonyea

“Remember this: All great projects begin with a dream. You can begin with nothing. Dreams cost nothing.” Robert Schuller I read a lovely story recently about something called “The Daffodil Principle.” A young mother insisted upon taking her own mother to see a field of daffodils at a local farmhouse, “before they were gone.” The older […]
