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 DECEMBER MINISTER’S MESSAGE: Making Space
One of the ancient traditions in my own history is the telling of the “Christmas Story” that describes the events leading up to and happening during the birth of Jesus. As a child and still to this day, the part I am drawn to in the story is Joseph and Mary arriving in Bethlehem and there is “no room for them at the inn.” It actually doesn’t matter to me -- does it to you?-- whether the story is a myth, legend or true! I believe that even as a child I realized that “no room for the holy one” was a metaphor I should pay attention to!
And that metaphor is the subject of our Sunday talks this month. “Making Space” is a way of looking deeply at the ways we can make room for the sacred in our everyday life. Making room might mean clearing out the closets of heart and mind to allow the freshness of divine inspiration. Or it might mean starting a spiritual practice to welcome in the Spirit. Making space in the ways that will support you spiritually is the encouragement this month and perhaps can serve to help you slow down, breathe deeply and be in the present for the gift of this season of your life.
Blessings to you and yours,
