“Practice the Presence of God”

It all starts with awareness and breath.
So let’s begin, first, to be aware of this moment,
the Divine Presence that is within you,
and all around you.
In our awareness of the Divine,
the feeling of Its Presence begins to expand.
It fills up our entire being
and begins to expand outside of us
and expands throughout the entire cosmos. 
We realize and know that there is nowhere we are that God is not.
We give thanks and praise
for this experience of God.
As we are fed spiritual substance which sustains us
far long and in a greater capacity than bread,
our lives begin to take on a new expression.
We are able to live fully present. 
This brings us more to be thankful for
as God out-pictures in our lives.
We agree to return often to this place of knowing.
And so it is!
Amen!
 
Sunday message – “Practicing the Presence of God”
Today we chose to put our sights on God. We are willing to “Practice the Presence of God” in all things at all times. A pause, a breath, a decision, and an action is all it takes. A conscious decision to look beyond outer conditions and circumstances to realize God. Throughout the Bible are descriptions of the action needed to draw ourselves to God, Divine Mind, Pure Substance. Join us Sunday as we look at many of the ways to God. The Christian Scriptures (New Testament) alone lists 13 actions towards God. I can hardly wait.  
  
Let us affirm together: I look above my normal human existence and draw myself, mind, body, and spirit to the Divine Presence which permeates and surrounds all things.        
 
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Today and always, We, the people are the church. We Grow in God and Grow in Love Daily.
Our Just Rewards for living God are Royal Inner Peace, Profound Agape Love, and Abounding Joy. Together we grow and glow in Christ. We are the best expression of Christ, and we welcome its ever-growing Expression.  

Join us each Sunday at 11am
In person or virtually, our doors are always open to you.
