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 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!Back to Top
Minister's Message for October 2014
"You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing." Psalm 145:16
"In the demonstration of abundance, we seek to realize the...freedom whereby God proves His absoluteness. This is done, not by meditation upon limitation, but by contemplating plenty, abundance, success, prosperity and happiness." Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind, Page 488.4
This month, we explore the topic of Living Abundantly. Science of Mind® teaches that God is Infinite Abundance and we are one of that. So, it is natural, good and right for us to live abundantly.
Unfortunately, many of us look, instead of at Source, at our effects, our circumstances and let them determine our life. We look at our bank account and decide that we can't live abundantly. We look at our job, our home, our car and let those decide who we are, instead of remembering the Truth of who we are and letting that show up in our effects and circumstances.
If we want a larger, more abundant outer experience, we must precede it with a larger and more abundant knowing in consciousness. "An expanded consciousness expresses in an expanded experience." Most of us work this law backwards.
This month, we're putting ourselves into forward and expanding our consciousness of abundance, prosperity, joy and well-being. We'll begin to look at what has held us back and how to release the influence of those old beliefs and begin to truly manifest lives we love!
Join us on Sundays for this journey.

Peace Practice for October 2014
I recently finished reading Larry Dossey's newest book One Mind. The closing paragraph deeply impressed me with a message of peace and attention to our planet. He shares this wisdom:
"If this great earth were to speak to us, it might summon us with the words of Rumi, the luminous Sufi poet of 13th century Persia: 'Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, fire worshiper, lover of leaving. This is not a caravan of despair. It does not matter that you have broken your vow a thousand times, still come, and yet again come.' And if summoned by the earth, how shall we answer? Each of us has broken our responsibilities to our earth and environment, therefore to ourselves and to one another, a thousand times. Yet it is within our power to redeem our shortcomings by reclaiming our nonlocal nature-the One Mind that unites us with all else, including our earth; the One Mind whose calling card is love, caring, affection. When we sense our place in this Great Connect, our response is to honor that with which we are linked, as if it were our lover. This connection is eternal; no assembly required. Rumi again: 'Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.'"
People, we are the peace we are longing for...
