Leadership Council Perspective-Christine Paige, RScP

christinepaigeA constant contact with Spirit allows me to be supported and sustained by a mighty power that gives of Itself freely, limitlessly, and unconditionally.  The Creator of all existence is always there. I know that It is the reason for my joy.

I feel Its presence and I listen above the noise in this universe and in the silence, I begin to see how amazing God’s work is unfolding in my life.

I glow in full bloom, even before spring’s cycle of harvest.

Rounding out this year of 2018 brings much reflection on the progress our community has made.  For myself, I have been given the opportunity to spread my wings and serve as one of the latest members on the Leadership Council.  I have watched our congregation steadily grow.  The Consciousness Café was a huge success at our Center.  It was the culmination of many sessions of visioning and discussions defining who we are and what our purpose is.  We have visioned for a greater existence of our Center which has opened a greater awareness of what flourishing is.  How can we turn water into wine?  What does it take to stand out?  How can we expand?  These are just some of the questions that are being addressed.

Well, we know it takes community effort.  It takes people power.  It means engaging in programming, education, outreach, and love is always a factor.  So, by making available Conscious Contribution Cards, we have been able to bring light and illustrate how everyone can give and support our center without feeling it to be a burden or an impossible gesture of giving.  “God created us to do amazing things.” ~Ephesians 2:10

Our Food and Faith ministry has been effective by feeding many on the last Wednesday of each month.  The giving does not stop there.  The many programs and events that CSLGLV offers and the Empower U classes continue to be an asset. We are supported by the knowingness that the more we give, the more we receive.

As we envision a world that works for everyone and for all of creation, we are changing lives day by day.  We get there by inspiring spiritual discovery through community, connection, exploration, and celebration.

Wishing all a Happy Holiday season and a prosperous and healthy New Year!

Peace & Goodwill,
