CSL 2018 Theme: “100 Years of Science of Mind”
January Theme: “Living the Science of Mind”
The first four Sundays of the year are based on the introductory chapters of Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes. This review of our basic principles offers a simple understanding of our philosophy for the newcomer while providing important reminders to long-time students of Truth.
January 7th Guest Speaker- Gerald Rivers!!!!
Quote: There is that within us which partakes of the nature of the Divine Being, and since it partakes of the nature of the Divine Being we are divine. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 34
Based on Chapter 1: “The Thing Itself”
For centuries, humankind has sought that which underlies and informs all creation
There is One Life, All-Knowing, All-Loving, All-Giving; It is God
Discovering Universal, Creative Intelligence, we find our divine nature
Affirmation: The Divine Life is the life from which I was created, and I honor Its presence everywhere and rejoice in Its expression through me.
January 14th “First Cause Through Each Cause ”
Quote: The Thing, then, works for us by working through us and is us always. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 37
Based on Chapter 2: “The Way It Works”
Our great men and women discover how Spirit expresses through them victoriously
The world is transformed through the kind of divine connection Martin Luther King, Jr. experienced
Spirit works for us by working through us
Affirmation: I am an open, receptive instrument for the flow of Creative Intelligence, co-creating a world that works for all.
January 21st “Love Points the Way; Law Makes It Possible”
Quote: We are surrounded by an Infinite Possibility: It is Goodness, Life, Law and Reason. In expressing Itself through us, It becomes more fully conscious of Its own being. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 46.
Based on Chapter 3: “What It Does”
Spirit is deeply personal; the Law is dependably impersonal
We “court the Presence and direct the Law”
Principle is Limitless, and, as we understand this, our freedom to use the Creative Intelligence expands
Affirmation: I delight in the warmth of the Divine Embrace and in the constancy of the Perfect Law.
January 28th “Bringing the Invisible into the Visible”
Quote: Its apparent intangibility is lessened whenever and wherever anyone actually demonstrates the supremacy of spiritual thought force over apparent material resistance. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 51
Based on Chapter 4: “How to Use It”
We are learning how to put this Power into practice
We use thought for specific purposes, knowing everything begins in Mind
Affirmative Prayer is the means by which we use the Creative Intelligence to manifest greater Good in our world
Affirmation: As I use the Power for Good to enhance my life, I invite It to use me to recreate a conscious, caring, wonderful world.
