From My Heart: Reverend Jyoti

jyotiGreetings.  How do you like our new semimonthly Newsletter format?  It will replace both the monthly Newsletter and the weekly Email Blast, and will be delivered to your email box on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.  (Except this time, when it will be published on Thursday, September 1.)  We want to make sure you get the information you want and need, but without quite so many emails.  Let me know what you think, OK?

When I think of September, I always think of going back to school, since when I was a kid in Southern California we never started back to school until after Labor Day.  And for most Centers for Spiritual Living, classes start again in September, also.  On Tuesday September 20th, here at CSL Boulder Valley, we’ll start Self Mastery; an eight-week class that will support you in deepening into the power of the Science of Mind teachings and principles.  There’s more info about it elsewhere in the newsletter.  If that class doesn’t fit your schedule, there are also Science of Mind classes available online.  For more information about online classes, go to http://csl.org/onlineclasses/courses/upcoming-courses/.

Our September theme of Service to the World gives us the opportunity to look at how we can use our passions and our gifts to joyfully make a difference in the world.  It also gives me the opportunity to thank all of you who serve in your community, in other organizations, and here at Center for Spiritual Living Boulder Valley.  By serving, you DO make a difference!  Thank you!

We’ve had some great music on Sunday mornings, and there’s more to come.  Jana Stanfield will join us on October 9th.  She’ll do the message and the music.  Even if you think you’re not familiar with Jana, you’ve probably heard some of her great New Thought music, such as “I Am Not Lost, I Am Exploring” or “If I Were Brave” – just to name a couple.  You’re not going to want to miss her, so come early to get your favorite seat.

Did you know that our Sunday messages are available on YouTube?  You can easily access them by going to our website, cslbouldervalley.org.  On most pages, there’s a green box that says, “Sunday Message”, which will take you to our messages.

In September, I’ll be in the office on all the Thursday afternoons except the last one, when Mary and I will be getting even more inspired at the 2016 Minister Gathering in Encinitas.  I’m also in the office at other times, by appointment.  Feel free to call if you’d like to come in to chat or to pray, or just to get to know each other better.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday mornings!  Journey joyfully, knowing that you are blessed and you ARE a blessing!

Love, Rev. Jyoti
