Oh Lord, how lovely it is to be your guest.
Breeze full of scents, mountains reaching to the skies;
Waters like a boundless mirror reflecting the sun's golden ray and the scudding clouds.
All nature murmurs mysteriously,
breathing depths of tenderness.
Birds and beasts of the forest
bear the imprint of your love.
You have brought me into life
As if into an enchanted Paradise
We have seen the sky, like a chalice of deepest blue,
Where in the heights the birds are singing.
We have listened to the soothing murmur of the forest,
And the melodious music of the streams.
We have tasted the fruit of fine flavor and
We can live very well on Your earth
It is a pleasure to be your guest.
- Gregory Petrov

Rev. Dr. Jerry Troyer
What does it mean to "thrive?" Is it
possible to experience absolute abundance in every area of our lives (health, relationships, work and finances)? And what is keeping us from that? Do beliefs in "fixed income," "family history and heredity," and other limited and limiting ideas keep us from expressing and experiencing all the good that life (and Life) has for us?
Bio: Rev. Dr. Jerry Troyer serves as the Administrator for ANTN (the Affiliated New Thought Network), as well as staff minister for Om Center for Spiritual Living in the San Diego area. He has studied New Thought and Religious Science principles since 1992.

Changing old familiar phrases and patterns can help us change our feelings, shift our thinking and remove limiting beliefs. Bring along familiar phrases you may have heard said about you, to you, or that you hear or use now. We'll have fun transforming them into Spiritual Principles and statements that help us feel happy, healthy, whole and thrive.

Our magnificent beingness is vital to the evolution of humanity, now! For us to thrive, we are invited to throw off the shackles of limiting thought and rise with vision-limned possibility.
Let's gather together and Shine like the Sun.
Happy Solstice and Father's Day!

Collectively, we are the first of our species to fully awaken to our Divine potential and power. As Barbara Marx Hubbard shared, "We are the ones, now is the time."
It's taken 200,000 years for us to realize who we really are and what we are capable of. As we apply the principles of thriving, we advance not only our lives, but also the lives of the human species.
"We have within us a power that is greater than anything we shall ever contact in the outer, a power that can overcome every obstacle in our lives and set us safe, satisfied, and at peace, healed and prosperous, in a new light, and a new life."
- Dr. Ernest Holmes
In this moment now, I recognize that I AM a conscious living expression of my Source.
My mind is a part of the Mind of God,
which is Intelligent, All-Powerful,
and Infinitely Creative.
I know that my consciousness is an attractive force,
and that all my prayers are answered.
I am so grateful that our spiritual community is blessed with everything that we need
to prosper and thrive.
HCCL is now welcoming the perfect minister into our life and community.
This deeply spiritual light-hearted person is
ready to be adopted and loved, as we open our hearts
to their presence.
I am grateful for the complete demonstration of
our community's co-vision.
I surrender this prayer back into the Mind of God,
knowing it is done.
I am excited for HCCL! And so it is. Amen.
As we have been sheltering in place, we have had many reminders about how precious our earth is. The hope is that you are buried in recyclable material now. Keep it up! There's always enough room and time to sort everything out. More importantly, we've had time to consider how much plastic we use and how unnecessary much of it is.
Rev. Jean is still saving bottle caps to fuel her big vision. Which ones? Any bottle cap you would throw in the trash, such as vitamin bottle caps, water bottle caps, prescription bottle caps, milk carton caps, you get the idea. Please collect them in a cardboard box and bring the full box to Rev. Jean.
PLEASE DO NOT bring the caps in a plastic bag, as we are eliminating the use of plastic.
Take a moment to thank Dianne Nickman, our "Recycle Queen," who takes our plastic, glass, paper, and cardboard to the transfer station every month.
Dear Rev. Jean,

The Light of God's wisdom, compassion, and love is needed now more than ever. Humanity has been going though trying times, without clear guidance.
God shines through your consciousness, lighting your life in amazing ways. You live in the Magic Kingdom, and you can share this truth is many ways. Simple acts of kindness go a long way now. Wave to garbage truck drivers and postal workers--to anyone who provides services in any way. It is a great blessing to those who serve. Shouting out to your neighbors and to the people who you find yourself walking with cheers everyone up. Find a positive response whenever you are with people.
May's theme "...and in your light, we see the Light" reminds you of who you really are, an expression of your Source. Your divinity is a bright light. Light to light,heart to heart, shoulder to shoulder, together we will change our world. The truth is, scientifically and spiritually, Light always absorbs darkness. Negativity has nothing to do with God. You must believe this before you can effect real change.
Know that you are a perfect expression of God. Shine your Light every day in every way that matters. Reach out, care, love, and most of all, pray.
We will know you by your Light. Thank you for being the presence of God in our world.
Deep within us all, there ís an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home unto itself.
Yielding to these persuasions, gladly committing ourselves in body and soul, utterly and completely, to the Light Within, is the beginning of true life. It is a dynamic center, a creative Life that presses to birth within us.
It is a Light Within which illumines the face of God and casts new shadows and new glories upon the face of humanity.
