Center for Spiritual Living™ Bellingham provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.
We honor all paths to God and can help you experience a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place: we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and help bring peace and harmony to the world.
If you are searching for a spiritual community where you are respected and accepted for who you are and want the inspiration and support to grow to your highest potential, please accept our invitation to visit us soon!
Theme for 2014: Start Where You Are
2014 SEPTEMBER MINISTER’S MESSAGE: Letting the World Speak
“Whether through the patterns left in snow, or geese honking in the dark, or through the brilliant wet leaf that hits your face the moment you are questioning your worth, the quiet teachers are everywhere, pointing us to the unlived portion of our lives. When we think we are in charge, the lessons dissolve as accidents or coincidence. But when we’re humble enough to welcome the connections, the glass that breaks across the room is offering us direction, giving us a clue to the story we are in.”
― Mark Nepo, The Exquisite Risk: Daring to Live an Authentic Life
I don’t know if you know this, but I have been given an amazing and unexpected gift – one of my daughters is taking me to Italy for a two-week vacation the first two weeks of this month! I don’t know, as I write this, what I will be packing, but I can tell you what I will be bringing! I will be bringing eyes open wide to new sights, mindful attention to each moment, a heart of gratitude for being gifted in such a way and openness to the quiet teachers I will find along the way.
Our September series of Sunday talks invites us to look deeply for the quiet teachers that surround us and “point us to the unlived portion of our lives.” My own practice of mindful attention will certainly serve me in my travels; and this month, the invitation is to learn about and practice this kind of mindfulness in order to become fully present to the dynamic, flowing, brilliant energy of the sacred that is present in every moment and reveals itself when we are focused in the here and now.
I hope you will join us!
Blessings to you and yours,
Our service on September 21, 2014 - 9:30am
Start Where You Are:
No Star to Guide Us
The early service is an opportunity to attend a different kind of Service earlier on Sunday mornings. This Service is brief, just half an hour in length and will include prayer and a message and then lead into our regular fifteen-minute Sunday meditation.
