At 11 a.m. Rev Julie Applegate will will present part two of her three part series on Beyond Limits.

I am very excited about sharing this three part series “Beyond Limits”. It is my personal way of bringing home the central theme of the Month of May, Compassion.
Few things thrill me more than standing witness to someone discovering greatness within themselves or discovering and expressing an inner creativity that brings joy.
We are creative beings and we are more than we imagine. If you and I want to have more, do more and be more, then we must go beyond our current limits.
We each have in some way put limits on our life, created some boundaries. These limits might be on our health, happiness, well-being, relationships, prosperity.
Join me for this three week series. Be inspired and challenged to go beyond your current reality.
Rev Julie

See the new life arising from the dark mud ponds?

Transform Wounds Into Wisdom

Thich Nhat Hanh says “No mud. No lotus.” The beautiful lotus flower grows out of the dankest muddy pond. Transform Wounds Into Wisdom provides an opportunity for participants to bring the light of love and compassion to an experience that causes pain so that they can discover the wisdom that is rooted there. Regardless of the source of the pain, this approach allows each of us to reframe our experience and free up space for new perspectives, new ideas and new ways of living in the world.

WE BELIEVE in the eternality, the immortality and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.

WE BELIEVE that heaven is within us, and that we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of it.

WE BELIEVE the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

WE BELIEVE in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God. We believe that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling presence.

WE BELIEVE in the direct revelation of truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature, and that anyone may become a revealer of truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.

WE BELIEVE that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.

WE BELIEVE in the healing of the sick and control of conditions through the power of this Mind.

WE BELIEVE in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness and the eternal Givingness of Life to All.

WE BELIEVE in our own soul, our own spirit and our own destiny; for we understand that the life of all is God.
