Minister’s Message

Thursday morning class on the 12 Powers continues through July and August. We are using the new book by Rev. Sharon Connors: Adventures in Resilience … Ignite the 12 Powers in You to Create a Radiant Life. Instructor: Rev. Jeri Linn. Our class begins  at 11:00 a.m. in the Children’s Classroom in Chaffee Hall.  

On July 11, 2021, we started a new series of Lessons inspired by the Silent Unity booklet, “The Power of Prayer.”  Our Lesson was “Willing to Forgive.”

The act of Forgiveness is such an important process in our spiritual growth in this lifetime … and even into future lifetimes.  As taught by our Elder Brother, Jesus Christ, Forgiveness is a continual process. 

Consider Forgiveness as the inner cleansing of old anger issues, lack, resentment and old excuses for chronic health, chronic lack/limitations, and loneliness.  Forgiveness is basically a Transaction. You are willing to take the 1st Step in Self-Forgiveness and Forgiveness of others.  In this Transaction, you are exchanging anger & hurt, error for the Truth that sets you free… and sets others free as well.

Call on the Power of the Christ consciousness to assist you in the Forgiveness Process: “Through the Forgiving Power of Jesus Christ, I am free, and I now set you free as well. Go in Peace to Your Highest Good, and I Go in Peace to my Highest Good.”

Loving You and Loving Life,

Rev Jeri Linn
