The Wednesday Morning Book Group (WMBG) meets every Wednesday in the Teen Room from 10 am to 11:30 am. We’ve got a great lineup of authors and books below. Book: "Divine Audacity" by Linda Martells-Whitsett We’ve finished Emmet Fox’s Power Through Constructive Thinking and have started reading and discussing Divine Audacity by Linda Martella-Whitsett. In this book LMW makes the audacious claim that each of us can be “the light of the world” as Jesus instructed his followers to be. “We truly find God when we go inside to connect with divine light, realize our oneness with God and others, and let our light shine in the world.” She begins by exploring what it means to be the light of the world. Then she introduces the reader to 12 spiritual powers we can learn to use and develop daily. Finally, how to be the light of the world. Drop Ins are always welcome. There is no “homework” because we read and discuss on Wednesday morning. Come see what we are all about!

The Power of Silence with Rev. Janee Marth Every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 Are you looking for a way to know the Truth of your being more deeply? Is it hard to get into the practice of being in the Silence by yourself? I invite you to come together with your Spiritual Community in a practice of Silence. We meet weekly to take a deep dive into the Silence together. We begin with a short meditation to lead us into the Silence. We sit in the Silence together for 45 minutes. In the Silence, our minds and our bodies relax, and we are present for what arises. It is your opportunity to pay attention to our inner nature, the Truth that we are. This time in the Silence is a gift you give to yourself. This time not only nourishes our spiritual being. Studies show that a committed practice of Silence not only has spiritual benefits, but it also nourishes our physical and emotional wellbeing. Silence helps new brain cells in the hippocampus to grow. These are responsible for the formation of emotions. Silence helps activate the brain, and helps the transfer of information from the short-term memory to long-term memory. Silence is a natural anti-stress remedy. It is vital for our brains, and just what we need to regenerate our tired brains and bodies. It’s what brings our Body, Mind, and Spirit into alignment. But, here’s the deal: we have to do it! Come join us in the Silence. Drop-ins welcome. Love Offering.
