Showing compassion was an integral part of the ministry of Jesus. Today, we’ll explore the meaning of compassion and how to make it a part of our everyday lives.

Don’t Stay In The Dark March 27, 2022

Have you ever stumbled around in the dark, looking for a light because the electricity was off? Then, you already have an intuitive understanding of why wisdom is necessary to know when to act and when not to act. In the spiritual journey to express the Transcendent Self, Wisdom begins when we become willing to let go of limiting beliefs. As we develop spiritual understanding, we know which problems in life we can change and which ones we can’t. Problems within ourselves are under our direct control. We may have some indirect control or no control for issues outside of us. Wisdom shows us which is which. Wisdom also guides us in how we might exercise indirect control. All of this requires a willingness to rise about the merely human aspect of Self and embrace the Transcendent! Join Rev. Jean on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at 10:30 AM to learn the six essential principles for effecting meaningful change in the world. Rev. Jean DeBarbieris

Last week, we saw that peace doesn’t have anything to do with controlling the Universe or circumventing the laws of Nature. It is entirely based on your ability to TRANSCEND Nature! Transcending your human Nature is the goal of your spiritual life! We saw that one key to transcendence is having an aim in life that is higher than mere survival. One way to move toward that aim is to unload the baggage in your life that hides in your Shadow Self. This week, we’ll look at the fear that holds you back from taking a good look at yourself and the courage that can fuel your journey to transcendence. This Sunday, 20 March 2022, at 10:30 AM, Rev. Jean will be joined by Karen Bonnell, who will share her musical gifts with us all! Rev. Jean DeBarbieris
