When Nature Speaks! July 18, 2007

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”

–Dr. George Washington Carver–

It’s the third week of July–where has the summer gone??!! Has that thought passed through your mind? In our culture, summer is the traditional time for families to get together, for vacations, for cultivating gardens, and for outdoor recreation. But when we are out enjoying the wonders of the natural world, do we slow down long enough to notice the divinity in nature? Ernest Holmes said, ” We live in a sea of Perfect Life, and we should take time to understand and sense this in our imagination.” Do we stop to admire the beauty of a flower? Do we ponder the many changes in the world to which an old tree has been a silent and patient witness? Do we sense the sacredness of the forest or the awesome power of the ocean?

As we enjoy the warm temperatures and long daylight of summer, opportunities abound for us to use our five senses to connect with the creator of all that is, and nature’s bounty is such a joyful expression of the source energy of Spirit. Let’s pause during the many activities of a summer’s day to notice God, to commune with God, and to gain sustenance from God.

“But we are born to be happy, to be abundantly supplied with every good thing, to have fun in living, to consciously unite with the Divine Power that is around us and within us, and to grow and expand forever.”

–Dr. Ernest Holmes–.

New Outreach Program

During the month of July, The Community for Spiritual Living is joining KKTV 11, Office Depot and Christmas Unlimited to collect basic supplies to help those in need provide their children with the proper tools and supplies to start their school year off successfully. Please take the flyer in today’s bulletin with you and when shopping pick up some of the items needed and bring to the Volunteer Center during service on Sunday. If you have further questions, please contact Karen Buckingham or Robyn Bonner. Thank you!
