Sunday Service – Practicing the Presence with Rev. Jim Pasmore

As Susan Warnick mentioned this past Sunday, Jim has written a book called “Flash” in which he describes a near-death experience which occured when he was in his early thirties. In this talk Jim will share “the rest of the story”. In his travels over the past 50 years to 66 countries, Jim has experienced some of the most amazing adventures and made some very special and deep connections with people around the world. In this talk Jim will share examples on how practicing the presence (and using the prayer of protection) has both protected him and connected him to some of the most interesting people, exciting adventures and occasionally harrowing experiences.

Sunday, January 23rd at 10am – Livestream only at

We are canceling in-person services until March 6th. Live-streaming will be happening on our website using Zoom, and you can watch even if you don’t have a Zoom account (or want to get out of your pajamas). It will also be available as a recording on our website, Facebook, and YouTube later that day. 

Your authentic identity is one of empowerment, confidence, safety, and worthiness. It is steeped in the spiritual reality of being more than “good enough”. Yet all too often, you forget who you really are and energetically disconnect from your true identity. While you may have been born into dysfunction, you were created out of GREATNESS. It’s time to come home to your authentic-self Beloved. There’s absolutely no sweeter or more powerful place to be, which is the Truth of your own Beingness.

The Purpose and Possibility of the Pause We’re In

Guest writing by Elaine Cornick

We’re in another pause–yet another pause inside the big two-year pause. Our cultural idea is that Jan. 1st is the time to “get moving” and “hit the ground running” after the pattern interruption and pause of the holidays.

That’s not what I’ve been feeling or reading or hearing this year. Instead, it has felt like a deepening, being still, going within, and being more quiet and reflective in a different way than the holidays are. Have you sensed that, too?

One way I see it is that Spirit, through the new Omicron variant, is…

Can You Help Members Eric & Menissa?

We don’t normally post things like this in the newsletter, but we felt called to do so in this case. Our beloved Sol Shine singer Eric Troup (and his beloved guide dog Zeke) and long-time member Menissa Roberts could really use a little more financial help to purchase a used car. If you can possibly donate – any amount will help, it would be so awesome. We are a community.

Member Appreciation

This week our shout out goes to Elaine Cornick. You may have noticed above, she wrote a beautiful article after reflecting on our announcement to pause in-person services until March. Elaine is a beautiful writer and mentor, and guide through the transformational process. After writing her piece she shared it with Rev. Jane. Jane loved it so much she decided to post it on our blog. Elaine, we applaud you for your dedication to spiritual growth and for applying all you have learned to a difficult situation. It’s easy to show up in a beautiful way when things are good, but as we all have experienced, it’s much more challenging to do so when life presents us with unwanted situations. We thank you for sharing your heartfelt writing with us Elaine.

We’re always looking for blog content. If you have writing to share please contact Clare Kubota – .
