Meeting at the Sylvan Community Center in Citrus Heights
Sunday Services 10 AM
We let go of any ambiguity about our nation, and remember the times when it was simpler to love this land. America. The New World. A place of wide-open plains, mighty rivers, and miles and miles of unexplored grandeur.
America lives in the hearts of her people. America is an ideal as much as it is a place. It is the ideal of a country where all people are welcome, all people are equal, and all people are free.
The birthing of this ideal has not come easily. Making manifest the vision of our forefathers has required years of struggle--times of seeming failure, seeming injustice and seeming defeat. Yet the dream lives on. We still see that noble country, the home of the brave, the land of the free.
Perhaps we have been charged with the mission of enlarging this vision to encompass the planet. Perhaps we, as 21st century humans, will at last hold to the truth that all men are brothers, all women are sisters and all people have the right to be free. We see our own nation as the flagship of this New World--a world where each country is honored and appreciated for its history, its culture and its unique place in the tapestry of life.
Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain. We grow in the awareness that our country was founded in God-mind and abides in God-heart. We allow it, and all other countries, to unfold into world destiny—a destiny where peace reigns and love abides. This is our prayer, the prayer for our global family and our earthly home.
in which we look at the major stages of transition through which each human passes as they progress from an old spiritual identity into a new one.
Services and Events
Sunday Service: The Quest for the Black Madonna
What arcane knowledge has been preserved in the great art in each age? Why has the Black Madonna remained a mysterious, albeit popular, subject for such art? What secrets are we hiding from ourselves in race mind? We explore the cultural aspect of encoded symbols as well as the parallel between them and the evolution of human consciousness.
