Discovery session -- Sunday Sept 26, 2010.

Topic: “Faith, hope and love – these three.”

The teens were not present when the adults gathered for Sunday’s Discovery discussion. Still, their presence was felt, as Rev John, the facilitator of the session, not only reported their words on the topic but displayed their clever, brightly coloured drawings illustrating their thoughts and feelings on Faith, Hope and Love. Flowers and the sun were among the objects portrayed.

The adults, who discussed the topic in four small groups, had varied ideas about it, all interesting. Here are some:
• Faith causes abundance to happen.

Physicist comments on creation of universe

Cambridge University Pofessor Stephen Hawking has made news again, commenting on God's role in the creation of the universe.
A recent Reuters report from London begins thus: "God did not create the universe and the "Big Bang" was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics, the eminent British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking argues in a new book. In "The Grand Design," co-authored with U.S. physicist Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking says a new series of theories made a creator of the universe redundant..."

Choice- The Greatest of All Gifts

Like so many others in Jamaica, I have been watching soccer matches in this world, series soccer tournament. While I am no expert in the game, I do have fun watching these athletic figures dash around at a frenetic pace, trying to get possession of the ball. The thing which fascinates me however is the way they pass the ball to a team mate. In a split second a decision is made, the ball is passed and to a team mate or lost to the opponent. A football game is lost or won on the choices that the players make.

Our attribute Light

Our God given attribute of Light means more than understanding, wisdom and clarity.It is also the ability to live from that Center of Awareness which makes us certain that every thing that is life-affirming is always manifesting in our lives and affairs ,all we have to do is show up. It is to know that no matter what is occurring the Light of Truth must shine forth allowing only more good to be expressed.We therefore keep our "eye'single and know for our countrymen that their lives are guided by love and light demonstating only power, peace, beauty and joy.

What am I wearing today?

Labels indicate the name and essence of any commodity we select for whatever reason. We use labels to describe any particular event or person at any given moment or we can use it to describe our feelings or state of being as well. So every morning or maybe during the day we can go into our box of labels and select the one we are expressing to the world of our affairs for that day, moment or even something permanent if we choose.

A Lenten Fast From Negatives

Ash Wednesday (February 17), marks the beginning of what the Christian religion refers to as Lent. During this 40-day period of spiritual preparation for Easter, it is traditional for believers to fast and to forego some pleasure or habit. As a child I never understood why my elders would, for example give up smoking or consuming alcohol and then return to these habits with renewed vigour on Easter Sunday. I remember at about age ten, asking an old friend of my parents why he stopped smoking and drinking for Lent.

The Power of the Moment

Every now and then something spectacular happens that causes some people to stop and contemplate the meaning of life. It is at that moment that the power of the immediate thought flowing from the perceptions transforms the direction of the life of that person.

How to Help Haiti

How to Help Haiti
The media is saturated with images of the earthquake in Haiti, The sight of you people terrified, grieving and injured could not obscure the beauty of the human spirit played out in random acts of kindness.
I am more convinced than ever before that there is no where good is not. “To I make my bed in hell, thou art there”- There is no where God is not. It takes knowing . It takes intention. It takes practice to see this Truth. To know this for certain is to be buffered from the inexplicable and the unexpected.

Our Hearts Go Out To Haiti

How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. - Psalm 36:7 (NLT)

Our hearts go out to our neighbours in Haiti in the wake of the earthquake which resulted in severe damage to buildings and the loss of thousands of lives on Tuesday January 12.

While, as practitioners of Science of Mind, we understand that life is eternal, we also empathize with the pain and grief suffered by those whose lives are shattered by the loss of loved ones and whose homes and means of livelihood crumble in such devastating circumstances.
