Video: Channukah and Speaking Up in the Presence of Oppression

Share it Please
Dear Friends,

To view the video below on YouTube, click here.

The topic today, “We Look Too Far Away for Reality,” comes from a well-known portion of Ernest Holmes’s The Science of Mind in which he writes:

It is a beautiful and true thought to realize that every person stands in the shadow of a mighty Mind, a pure Intelligence, and a divine givingness! The farmer has seen the Heavenly Host in the fields. The child has frolicked with It at play. The mother has clasped It to her breast and the fond lover has seen It in the eyes of their beloved. We look too far away for Reality.

The passage is a beautiful reminder to look for, notice, and appreciate the presence of Divinity in everything we do.

Next Sunday, on Christmas morning, we will be practicing doing that. The
topic is “Recognizing the Light Within,” and I will be the speaker at our one service at 10 am. Because of the holy day, there will be no Youth and Family program. Young ones are welcome to attend service with the adults. Evening service will be at 7 pm.

Warm regards,
Edward Viljoen

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
