Hello Folks! Welcome back and we hope July was a month of having a holiday or two or at least some time to kick up your feet, being with family and friends.

Just to say our Church Services will begin on Sunday September 4th, at 10:30 a.m. For those who are new to our Website, we meet on the first and third Sundays of the month, from September – June. The months of July and August are set aside for re-charging, re-newing and re- setting ourselves and those who serve our Church throughout the year.
We love the Fall months! We will be missing the Manitoba summers of course, however, we now restructure how we will jump into the new Church Year.


Doesn’t it seem this would also be a good idea for your personal lives as well? I remember a friend talking about how it is so much easier to re-vamp her daily life if she sees it in black and white….on paper….in her hand.

This isn’t as much of a chore as you might think. You don’t need to take a whole lot of time to set this up. A few hints….just place a post-it note in your pocket and as you are running around, you brain going off in all directions, take a moment to jot down the points you want to remember for your new plan!

Included would be meal ideas that come up or a new habit you want to incorporate. Jot it down. For those who have a cell phone strapped to your hip, the “Note” app is great to have. You won’t have to stop and list as much as you think, as you only list those things that you feel will make a true difference to you.

On that note and before we close, maybe make this, the new Church year, one of attending? What is wonderful about our services, is that it is actually the one time out of your week devoted especially to you and your Spirit path. One hour and a bit more, just for you. Think of how often this happens in your day, your week, your month. This is not selfish, this is self-actualizing…renewing, recharging and relaxing, thinking of you and only you, and your importance to Spirit and to Infinite Intelligence.

You being in our physical world is no mistake! Come and let us show you how to re-start your Fall of 2022. Let us show you of the importance of you. How to re-vamp your “Triangle of Life” Physical, Spiritual and Emotional. Hope to see you soon, God Bless!

Good Morning Folks! We were asked by a few people to post the “Talk” from the last Friday before the summer months of July and August. We wanted the last service to be one of fun as well as contemplation.

We took turns reading the six pages of “sayings” and had a good time doing it! Some of these “sayings” have been around for decades! Some are funny and others make one think. If we knew the author of the saying, we placed the name down under what was said. Some of these gems are hundreds of years old, and some are modern gems. Enjoy!

.Let go and let God.

Have a great summer folks and God Bless!

Sunday May 29th, 2022 Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! So much to say today. First is an apology to all women who celebrated Mother’s Day. We had a computer malfunction and could not do the Mother’s Day message. We ended up having to purchase another which took some time, however, not in time for the Sunday Mother’s Day message.

Warm congratulations still are sent to all Mum’s, Mom’s, Mother-In-Laws, Nannies, Nana’s, Grandmothers, Baba’s, Kookums and all those incredible women who look after and care for children…..your wonderful care is always appreciated by us!

So just to let you folks know, there are two Sunday Services left before the summer months of July and August are here. Sunday June 5th, and Sunday June 19th. We will always be available with just a phone call….(204) 390-6609 and emergency number (204) 338-5505.

Now onto today. Covid has put such a strain on many, many people. Lives have been changed in many ways. We all know that. We are hoping the Fall will come along and have a new normal established so we can all jump into Life once more.

 This may include doing things like continuing to wear a mask while in public. Staying clear of larger functions where vaccination mandates are not in place anymore. It may include smaller home gatherings and associations.

Dipping our toes into public places and being careful must be completely in our comfort level. This is better, if seen as a positive move and not one dictated by fear.

The old saying, “there is nothing to fear except fear itself” does nothing to quell the inner turmoil one feels when we ourselves are placed into various situations. Doing what is comfortable for one’s self would always be the mandate you choose.

As time goes on and situations arise, let your lives be dictated not by fear, however, but by being led by whatever situation the day brings and your comfort level with it. Be true to you.
Remember, the only person you can control, the only person you can change, is yourself. You have only one life so why waste this plane of existence. Why waste it on fear, why waste it on procrastination, why waste it on negativity? When you cross-over you have eternity to come into full fruition, if not given  the long life to which we all are entitled to on this earth-plane.
Make each and every day count! Look for ways of finding the positive! Stop feeling helpless with negativity, when you have every opportunity to change it.

Examples being….you have a hard time forgiving someone? Ask for forgiveness for yourself and sending a positive thought for the one person or people who have given you grief. Then let it go to Infinite Intelligence, Creator God, it will work!

You will lighten the load on your shoulders. Send it off and go on with life. Knowing that no matter what happens in life, when the people who gave you grief die they have their book of life to go through and make amends for. It is not in your hands, you have let it go. Let it go and live in the present moment, with gratitude that you experience life in a country like Canada. Gratitude you have food, shelter and clothing. Gratitude for the health you have! Sending positive to yourself, doing self-healing as well, so that the future days will be filled with health, wealth and happiness!

Another example, the horrific war in Ukraine. Instead of being angry, upset and not being able to get it out of your head….well how is that in any way  turning your thoughts around! Send to the Ukraine, positive thoughts of the people finding food, shelter, clothing and safety. Send it off knowing your thoughts are being heard and situations will change for individuals, families and such.

Remember one positive thought is hundreds of times more effective than a negative one. Now we have said these are things more than once. They are worth repeating, as sometimes we need to hear something more than once to eventually define their importance in us in our daily lives.

All the very best and God’s Blessings to you! (We will be just a call away)

P.S. Just a reminder our Services are on the First and Third Sundays of each month, from September until June. We are closed for the summer months of July and August. Don’t let the fifth Sundays that periodically arise, mislead you. First and Third only.

Talk by Bardee H

Being a spiritualist is difficult. 

Simply put, the seven principles state what we give we get, whether it is through thought, word, or deed. We and only we are responsible for our life. We are able to learn and change because we have free will. But, free will can be a double edged sword. We can also choose not to change. Our choice. Change can be very difficult and scary. We need to look after ourselves to be our best so we can make positive changes. In order to make these changes we need to take care of ourselves and be in the best form we can be in spiritually, mentally and physically. So we need to look at the term self-care and what exactly does self-care mean? According to Brianna Weist:

“Self care is often a very UN-beautiful thing.

It is making a spreadsheet of your debt and enforcing a morning routine and cooking yourself healthy meals and no longer just running from your problems and calling the distraction a solution.

It is often doing the ugliest thing you have to do. 

Like sweat through another workout or tell a toxic friend you don’t want to see them anymore.

Or get a second job so you can have a savings account. 

Or figure out a way to accept yourself so that you are not constantly exhausted from trying to be everything all the time and then needing to take deliberate, mandated breaks from living to do basic things like drop some oil into a bath and read ‘The Secret’ and turn your phone off for the day.

A world in which self care has to be such a trendy topic is a world that is sick. Self care should not be something we resort to because we are so absolutely exhausted that we need some reprieve from our own relentless internal pressure.

True self care is not salt baths and chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.

And that often takes doing the thing you least want to do.

It often means looking your failures and disappointments square in the eye and restrategizing. It is not satiating your immediate desires. It is letting go. It is choosing new. It is disappointing some people. It is making sacrifices for others. It is living a way that other people won’t. So maybe you can live in a way that other people can’t.

It is letting yourself be normal. Regular. Unexceptional. It is sometimes having a dirty kitchen and deciding your ultimate goal in life isn’t going to be having abs and keeping up with fake friends. It is deciding how much of your anxiety comes from not actualising your latent potential, and how much comes from the way you were being trained to think before you even new what was happening. 

If you find yourself having to regularly indulge in consumer self care, it is because you are disconnected from actual self-care, which has very little to do with “treating yourself” and a whole lot to do with parenting yourself and making choices for your long term wellness.

It is no longer using your hectic and unreasonable life as justification for self sabotage in the form of retail therapy, food, liquor and procrastination. 

It is learning how to stop trying to “fix yourself” and start trying to take care of yourself….and maybe finding that taking care of yourself lovingly attends to a lot of the problems you were trying to fix in the first place.

It means being the hero of your life, not the victim. 

It means rewiring and reworking what you have until your everyday life isn’t something you need therapy to recover from. 

It is no longer choosing a life that looks good over a life that feels good. 

It is giving the hell up on some goals so you can care about others.

It is being honest even if that means you are universally unliked. 

It is meeting your own needs so you aren’t anxious and dependent on other people.

It is becoming the person you know you want to be and are meant to be. Someone who knows that bath salts and chocolate cake are ways to enjoy life—not escape from it.”

So REMEMBER: WHATEVER YOU ARE NOT CHANGING YOU ARE CHOOSING.

I will repeat that: WHATEVER YOU ARE NOT CHANGING YOU ARE CHOOSING.

So choose wisely!!!

Hello Folks! We felt that a “Talk” given by Reverend Glenn would be good to do as a Website Message for today.

“ RESILIANCE”

That’s what Spiritualism does for us; gives us all resilience. It helps us to keep moving forward no matter the “quagmire” of life that is put in front of us.

A two year pandemic with all its downs, a U.S. Insurrection, blockade’s at our boarders and in front of the Parliament Buildings, and now a war in the Ukraine. Never mind our own personal problems!

But, we are here, maybe a little beat up, upset, angry and frustrated. We are not isolated! We have our Guides to talk to, we have a Church that supports us, and people in our Church who are there ready to help us.

We also have our “Principles” with us that are like a walking staff, to help us understand the
world in which we live. I encourage all of you to look them over and just see what there is to help you. Numbers five and six are very good ones; tough to understand for some of us. It is the way you look at it that makes the difference.

Principle Number Five: Personal responsibility, for the creation of our reality, through thought, word and deed. One thought during all of this, is a compound of that I have mentioned. Be it angry, upset, a little hate maybe. Look at all the negative we put forward and just added to it. Yes, we add to the negative and helped that negative to grow. We probably didn’t go deep enough into ourselves to change it.

I must confess I myself sometimes have taken the short road to anger, and it sure was easy. In doing that, I myself created negative. Now, how to go deeper and rethink my responses.

The war, Ukraine and Russia. It is not to send “negative” to Russia, instead, it is to send “positive” to the Ukraine. And not to kill all the Russians, but to have them leave their country. You don’t have to go any further than that, and you have done your part. Principle Number Five; and that goes for all negative thoughts and situations.

It takes more work and understanding, but you can find it! We just need to rethink the negative and find the positive. First start by “keeping an even mind” which is “Staff of Life” told to us by Andrew Jackson Davis, one of the founding Fathers of Modern Spiritualism. Then a refocus on the problem and make it a positive. It is work but it does work. You will sleep better at night. You won’t go to bed angry or frustrated because you have done your part. And that’s all you can do. That is all you need to do!

By the way….I forgot to mention Principle Number Six: “Actions create results according to Natural Law.” By refocusing your attention
away from the problem, and towards the positive your action engages the Law of Attraction. This is a hundred times stronger and more effective than the negative. God Bless! I thank all my Guides, for helping me with the “Talk” and through these troubled times.

Hello Folks! Good News….just a reminder if you missed the last Website Message…our Church will be open on Sunday March 6th, at the usual 10:30 am time. To let everyone know, we will be keeping in place, for the protection of all, vaccination requirements, mask wearing and keeping chairs at the 6 ft. distance. We will follow these mandates until further notice. To those who are new to our Church Website, we are continuing to follow these procedures, as there are folks in our Church have compromised immune systems and wee ones too.

Now, we have a habit of saying, “things in three’s” which seems to be the case in many circumstances. Well the not so good news is “things in threes” happened to Manitoba and the rest of Canada. Negative “things in threes.” (1)Covid-19 (2) the protest that turned into the occupation of Ottawa which then turned nasty, (3) the invasion of Ukraine by the militant leader of Russia. Three very negative situations, the likes which have never been seen before in Manitoba, Canada and the world. Serious indeed! We are left with our heads spinning!

There are the other groups of three which have been affecting us profoundly. Our health, wealth and happiness….also our physical, Spiritual and emotional. All feeling stressed and hard to emotionally pull out of. Anxiety is so hard. Indeed hard to poke our heads out of. What now?

It sometimes is difficult to remember, the only person we can control, in thought, word and deed is ourselves. We have complete control over “self” and that pretty much says it all. We must remember, we are loved beyond measure. Especially when anxious about life. We are blessed with life, the God-Spark within. Anytime you look at yourself with critical eyes, switch your focus right away to the perfection of the God-Spark, the Presence within. The real you is Spiritual, and can therefore never be less than perfect and can never be destroyed.

Transmit the highest frequency of love, for yourself and for the World. When you do this with focus and great intention, you open yourself to the abundance of God’s Holy Spirit World…the Universe! Infinite Intelligence, Creator God! The precious God-Spark within will fill you with a peace that passes all understanding. Nothing is limited, nothing at all. Praising and blessing dissolves all negativity. If you want to dissolve negativity, recognize the beautiful and wonderful things around you. Focus with great intent.

Think abundance for all, see abundance for all, feel abundance for all and let no thought of limitation enter your mind. You will be surprised and amazed at what you can create, and this we know for sure! God Bless each and every one of you!

Sunday February 6th, 2022 Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Good News is on the horizon! Church will be starting again on Sunday March 6th, 10:30 a.m., usual time. As well to our students, classes are picking up again on Thursday March 3rd 7:00 p.m. All procedures as mandated by Manitoba Health are in place for our safety, and those of our guests.

So! With the news worse than ever, it is hard to separate the “wheat from the chaff “ so to speak. Misinformation, disinformation abound and it is sad to see what is happening in our country. Especially now in Ottawa and other Canadian cities. We have a saying that may help you discern what is and what isn’t.

“Wide acceptance of an idea is not proof of it’s validity”

We have said this one before, however it seems it is taking on more importance as the Covid pandemic rears its ugly head again. Remember, Spiritualism is the Science, Religion, and Philosophy of continuous life. Science is the first word in this brief message of Spiritualism. Good scientific proof and good scientific facts will prevail, and the science of the proof for this pandemic is evident, throughout the world. We are given the facts of what it takes to beat this terrible and deadly virus.

On a positive note, vaccines are free to all, the unfortunate negative note is even though the science dictates the positive, some folks are hept up on their freedom of choice for themselves, not thinking of the freedom to live, to life, which must be acknowledged here. The freedom to access medical help. The freedom to access what is needed for their health and a human beings right to live.

To the the silent majority, please keep in mind the Canadians who are in need of help, of medical assistance, treatments and not receiving it. The help being postponed, due to those who worry about their freedoms. What about the right to life? What about the right to receive that help.

As Spiritualists we know that “thoughts are things.” So when we get down about the anti-vaxxers, Ottawa being in the throws of “occupation,” just remember to send out to the hurting world, your positive, caring and loving thoughts……to all! God Bless!

Sunday January 23rd, 2022 Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather


Hello Folks! In talking with a member of our Church, she had mentioned when she has difficulty sleeping, she will look at our Website Messages and it helps.

You know, we hadn’t stopped to think of how people read what we post. We were just hoping the site would be read and folks inspired or comforted by it. The Website was a great idea and we have our Board Member, Joanna Seys to thank, for doing the mechanics of posting and keeping up the site. We personally haven’t exactly mastered any high tech or 21st century technology and that boat moves very slowly at home. (Haha)

Now…. here’s a quote for you!

“Wide acceptance of an idea is not proof of it’s validity”

Walking around for a whole day repeating it and placing situations within this quote was revealing to say the least! The one situation which kept on popping up was the concept of the kernel of truth about Spiritualism. We say, “Spiritualism is the Science, Religion and Philosophy of Continuous Life.” This is, of course the wide acceptance of Spiritualists world wide. It was uplifting to see how the proof of the validity of Spiritualism was shown. The philosophy and religion of Spiritualism has been proven by the science of Spiritualism.

It would also be good to place any ideas you have, that you have put on a shelf for future inspiration…and maybe apply that quote to see if it brings up a few nuggets to flesh out an idea you may have had. January and the newness of 2022 can bring forward many ideas for home, business, education and such. What exactly is the validity of the idea you have?

We look forward to the next 11 months to nurture new ideas, realizing the validity of those ideas gives ways to think over, ponder, and reflect. We know for sure, some of those ideas will be instrumental for enriching your life, if you choose to do so. (physically, spiritually and emotionally) Know that we think of you all and send you great thoughts, Healing and Spirit Blessings. Enjoy your Sunday! God Bless.
