The Center for Spiritual Living, Redding
The 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, Redding, 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, Redding, you will find 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!Back to Top

Minister's Message for February 2016 ~ It's About Love
"It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no one can sincerely help another without helping himself." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The universe operates through dynamic exchange...giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy of the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives." --Deepak Chopra
February is famous as the month of celebrating romantic love, centered around Valentine's Day. Romantic love is one of many forms that the deeper Love of Spirit can take. Whether we find ourselves in a "relationship" (and we're always in relationships) or not, the Infinite Love is fully present and available for all of us to tap into. Spirit sets a banquet of Love every moment. Do we partake? Do we rush through? Do we take time to savor the banquet? Or do we get in food fights and complain about the food?
One of the great ways to activate our Love receptors is the practice of gratitude. As I begin to focus on what I'm grateful for, I feel more loved, more supported by the Universe, more at peace.
Gratitude is also one of the key practices for opening up to greater wealth. How is this possible? Because Love is all there is (God IS Love); therefore, any form of wealth we can conceive is simply just an expression of the One Love.
This month, we are going to begin our annual pledge program, inviting you to express your love and support for our Center by consciously deciding the form and amount of that support. Because I believe in what I call the "filling up and spilling over" concept of pledging, we will also be exploring ways to support your own personal prosperity. Our guide will be the book (and workshop and class) The Path to Wealth by May McCarthy. This book has been receiving rave reviews from some powerful spiritual teachers.
May herself will be the guest speaker the last Sunday of February and present her 2 1/2 hour workshop that day. You will want to be here for this powerful workshop. During March and April, I'll be doing a 7-week follow up series on the 7 spiritual steps she introduces.
Some people get a little "wonky" when it comes to talking money and "church." Past experiences, belief systems that don't really make sense when we stop and think about them, feelings of personal inadequacy around money and all sorts of other "junk" can get in the way. If you are one of those who get 'triggered' by this topic, I invite you to face it down and join us for this month's services. Money is just God in form. And, the Center - as each of us individually and all of us collectively - exists in the physical world (which is God, too) and thus exists within the realm of what Ernest Holmes calls "human needs and aspirations." Join us this month for a rich exploration of helping to "create a Center that works for all."
Have a Love-filled month!
