The Center for Spiritual Living, Redding

Welcome Home!

SanctuaryThe Center for Spiritual Living in Redding, California, provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.

The Center for Spiritual Living is a spiritual community and way of life that honors all paths to God and helps people to discover a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place — we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth and bring peace and harmony to the world.

We extend a warm welcome to all people in search of a spiritual community where they are embraced, respected, accepted for who they are, inspired and supported to grow to their highest potential.

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.

Are you feeling alone, lost, empty or disconnected? Are you in crisis? Are you lacking fulfillment, looking for answers, healing and a spiritual home?

At the Center for Spiritual Living, you will belong to a like-minded community, a spiritual home, where you can discover peace of mind, healing, inspiration, and live with a personal relationship with God. We look forward to meeting you in person!

Minister's Message for November 2014

"A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things." Plato

"Giving thanks is an important state of your consciousness which keeps you in an awareness of oneness with divine flow." Eric Butterworth - Spiritual Economics

Rev. David Robinson

Paul was at his best when he wrote, "In all things give thanks." Ernest Holmes comments about this line, "An attitude of gratitude is most salutary, and bespeaks the realization that we are now in heaven."

This is the time of year when we think about gratitude. The US holiday of Thanksgiving echoes many other earth-based festivals of gratitude for a good harvest following the growing season. In consciousness, we are constantly planting, growing, nurturing and harvesting. To live in a state of gratitude is to recognize our participation in the process of creation.

Paul was actually in prison when he wrote that line. Many of us grew up with the belief in waiting until we had something for which to be grateful, but wise teachers say, no - gratitude in all things, all the time. If we wait for the more money, better car, relationship, job, health - whatever - we will always be waiting. But, as Ernest Holmes reminds us, living in gratitude is living in heaven (which is always available) now.

So, don't wait! Step into an awareness of the full presence of heaven in your life now by practicing gratitude. A great way to do this is to keep a journal and write 5 things for which you are grateful every day. After a while, you'll be moving to 10 and 15. And, since what we put our attention on increases, we'll be experiencing more and more reasons to be grateful and more of the divine flow in our lives. Put gratitude first!

Rev. David Robinson

This month, you'll have an opportunity to practice gratitude for your financial good by participating in our annual pledge drive. The first three Sundays of November will focus on how you can fill up and spill over in supporting CSLR grow and lead more people to their souls. Please join us!

Peace Practice for November 2014

Peace PoleBow in prayer. Place your hands quietly in your lap or over your heart and speak the gratitude you have for life. Pray for the wellbeing of all those who cross your path. Upon awakening each morning, picture what you are grateful for, what the day has in store for you. Upon taking in your food, honor where it came from and how it nourishes you. Pray for your health, for your body. Upon resting for the night, bless what the day revealed to you. Pray for the things you don't understand. Bless the abundance in your life. Simply pray...all day and all month. Peace is behind every prayer. Pray until your heart is silenced in the awe of what is.

Blessings and Peace Always, Rev. Sue MillerBorn
