Happy New Year 2019 with Dr. David Ault

Share it Please
Dear Friends,

2019 marks 25 years that I have served this community as Senior Minister and I am so grateful to have had the privilege. And later this year, our Center will reach its 65th year of operation in Sonoma County. Since this Center began, its focus has been on studying and applying the Science of Mind for the purpose of living a fuller life. “The practice of Science of Mind,” our founder Ernest Holmes wrote, “calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth.” Here he was writing about the Truth of our oneness with the Divine, and through It, with each other.

(To view Dr. David Ault's message launching our new year, click here.)

This year we will be exploring how our spiritual studies can enhance, not only our personal lives but also make a positive contribution to society. For that reason, we have adopted a theme for 2019: Spiritual in Action, based on the ten prophetic justice principles developed by Rev. James A. Forbes. 

We have matched each justice principle (such as seeking the common good, diversity, and inclusion, caring for the poor, advocating for the vulnerable, etc.) with values of the Center for Spiritual Living (such as oneness, diversity, compassion, etc.)

We have selected an anchor book for the year, 365 Science of Mind: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Ernest Holmes, to keep us closely connected to our Science of Mind teaching while we explore how to bring what we are learning at the Center into action in the world. We have also selected 12 supporting books for each month, to supplement your study if you enjoy additional reading.

May this year bring peace and joy for you, and your loved ones. And, thank you for everything you do to make the Center the shining light of hope that it is in our county.

Please enjoy Dr. David Ault's message launching our new year.

Warm regards,

Edward Viljoen

Journaling offers a powerful way to record your spiritual growth. Writing in a journal calls on you to be more conscious of the insights that occur daily in your life. It gives you an opportunity to examine your beliefs and be mindful of your choices.

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
