Sept 15: Celebrate the Good in All Life | Musician: Patrick Hutchison
Sept 22: What Would Love Do? | Musician: Peter Cranton
Sept 29: The Oneness in Nature | Musician: Harpist Monica Hargrave
Theme: The Simple Teachings
Our founder Ernest Holmes put forward a simple and profound teaching based on ancient wisdom from a variety of spiritual traditions. These coalesced into a unified teaching of the Goodness of God and Humanity: the power of each one to change their lives for the better by understanding how the universe works and how to use it. Life is for us. God is for us. Spirit is for us. There is no condemnation; it is that simple.
Sept 15: Celebrating the Good in All Life
So many people are looking for someone or something to redeem them save them and they usually look outside of themselves. The real power of redemption lies within us. It is embedded in our freedom to accept and celebrate our uniqueness as our goodness. It is passed on as we celebrate the unique goodness of everyone else. Its simple, just do it. Musician: Patrick Hutchison
“Find me someone who has redeemed his own soul, and he shall become my redeemer.” –Ernest Holmes †
Sept 22: What Would Love Do?
Ours is not a passive teaching. There is a call to action stemming from our own desires and from our world. Our response to the call is our response to the question, “What would love do?” I dare you! Musician: Peter Cranton
“Find me someone who has given all that he has in love, without morbidity, and I will have found the lover of my soul. Is not this true? Why? Because he will have revealed to me the nature of God and proved to me the possibility of all human souls.” –Ernest Holmes †
Sept 29: The Oneness in Nature
From Forest Baths to squawking birds, nature is part of the same system of life that we are. At calls to us from every direction. “Here is spirit. Here is love. Here is support. Here is life.” Welcome it, embrace it, as an expression of the One Infinite Intelligence calling out to you. Musician: Harpist Monica Hargrave
“Find me one person who knows how to talk to God, really, and I shall walk with him through the woods and everything that seems inanimate will respond—the leaves of the trees will clap their hands, the grass will grow soft under him.” –Ernest Holmes
† All quotes are from the short “Final Sermon by the Sea” delivered by Dr. Ernest Holmes at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, CA in 1959. The use of the masculine pronoun is his and was the common practice of the day despite the clear inclusive intention. We retain them here to be true to his quote. The sermon is available from Science of Mind Archives.
