Sunday April 18th, 2021 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Last Message we said “Spring is here”
now in West St. Paul/Winnipeg area, its snowing and blowing. It is such a back and forth effect with our Spring in Manitoba. You just don’t know what the morning will bring! Yesterday we were sitting on the deck having a great cup of tea and enjoying our beautiful blue Canadian sky. Today it’s hot coffee and Glenn shovelling off the deck. Hang in there folks, the warm spring winds and summer is coming!

This is the intro to our Message today. It is about “perseverance.” The third wave of Covid-19 and the variants that have followed, have now come upon us. It is a nerve- wracking experience for us all. There are some things in your life that feel like they are beyond your control. Weather, politics of other countries, the actions of people when driven by their emotions, the major banks of the world, well the list can expand from there. We are here to advise you that the great characteristic of “perseverance” can help immensely.
Author Lisa Nichols who co-wrote the book, “Chicken Soup for the African-American Soul” made this statement. She said, “It’s not your job to change the world, or the people around you. It’s your job to go with the flow inside of the Universe, and to celebrate it inside the world that exists”

This statement is very freeing! We also can add to that statement, our observation of the “perseverance” people summon when presented with hurdles of life. We say frequently, “never, ever, ever, give up!” Keep moving forward. Don’t give up on your hopes, your dreams, whatever it is you want to have to make your life enriched and full. Persevere!
Spiritualism and its Principles, it’s Acknowledgments have always persevered! Persevered over criticism by so many variants of politics, government, religions and people. The Spiritualism movement has always persevered, due to the truths of its roots. Spiritualism is the Science, Religion and Philosophy of Continuous Life.

My great-aunt Lottie sent me a letter when I was young and living in a hopeless situation. She said,”Go forward! Look upward! Each day will find you with the sun before you and the clouds behind you! This short verse was so uplifting just when I needed it most and now you have these wonderful words to use as your own. Persevere! Life can be all that you want it to be, it is your inherited right, your birthright, and you deserve it. Set your mind on the good side of life. Let go of your past, persevere towards the future! Warm spring weather and our incredible Manitoba summer are just around the corner. Covid will eventually lessen it grip on us all. Persevere! God Bless, all of you!
