Taize… Carry the light within
Readings … Music … Meditation … Candlelight
Taizé is a deeply spiritual experience which for many years has brought together people from all cultures and denominations. It is a sign of hope in a divided world, and it has brought new life to churches throughout the world.
Chanting, prayer and silence are at the heart of the Taizé experience. People from every corner of the globe are encouraged to live this sacred experience in a spirit of joy, simplicity, and reconciliation.
In these challenging times Taize’ can bring peace and equanimity to the world.

Third Sunday of Every Month
Sunday, January 16
After Sunday Service
In the Youth Room
Some of us have been around this philosophy forever, others are pretty new to it. But we can all remember the first time we walked in the door. The people seemed nice, the music was good - but the language was strange. They spoke about God as "It" rather than Him. And what was that prayer about? The symbol with the V in the middle - what does that mean?
If you have questions that want answers or would just like to learn more about this Center -
who we are and what we believe - join us!
It'll be fun!
Basics of Science of Mind Class
An overview of the philosophy
Four Tuesdays beginning January 11
Online via Zoom, 6:30-8:00 pm
With Rev. Myrna Hirst
Traditionally, during the month of January many Centers for Spiritual Living focus on the Introductory chapters of our primary textbook, “The Science of Mind” by our founder, Ernest Holmes. The chapters are:
In this four-week class we will explore together the essence of those four chapters, how they form the foundation of our philosophy and how to use them in our daily lives. This class is perfect for folks who are new to our Center and its teachings or as a wonderful refresher for long-time students of the Science of Mind.
The cost will be $40 for the four-week class, or $10 per week.

Take some time to turn within and contemplate the following aspects of your life:
If there is another area of your life that you would like to add, add it.
Without judgment or trying to change anything, simply notice which areas feel expansive and which areas feel more constricted.
Use the Living Everyday Wonder Wheel of Life Tool to plot what you noticed by placing a dot on each spoke of the wheel.
The more expansive you feel in an area of life, the further out on the spoke you place the dot.
Conversely, the tighter or more constricted you feel in an area, place the dot closer to the center.
Next, draw a “circle” connecting the dots.
What do you notice?
Would your wheel roll smoothly or would it go thump thump, thump?
What size is your wheel?
Notice how all of these areas are important, interrelated and interconnected and each is a vital part of the wholeness.
Orienting ourselves to wonder and being curious about life expand us and our experience of life.
Looking at your wheel, in what areas might you benefit from
Your wheel is just a snapshot of this moment.
Over the course of the year, we are going to focus on each of these eleven areas and have plenty of opportunities to practice wonder and curiosity.
As we go through the year, be curious about the shifts and changes you experience in each of these areas and plot the dots again as you do.
At the end of the year, plot your wheel again. Notice what’s changed.
Odds are that if you practice living everyday wonder, your wheel will look very different and you will be different.
