September 20, 2020 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! We are both very excited to start up our Church Services once again on Sunday October 18th, 10:30 am. Reverend Glenn will be doing the first “Talk” and we are so glad! It is sure to be amazing (as per usual). Since we have a few Sundays before our Fall Opening we will be giving Website Messages up until then.

Now down to the Message. Do you feel as if you are heading into a new start with the advent of Fall? Just know we are on board with you in wishing the Covid-19 pandemic would be over and done with. Reality says we are into “new norms” and this may last for awhile, maybe for years.

What concerns us is the propensity for depression and a giving up of self in what seems to be a never ending situation that has crept into our lives. The remedy may be one of starting at square one. What is square one you say? Making the most of the saying “one day at a time” and kicking it into your reality, your daily life.
There is a lot to be said for looking for the positive each and every day. You reading this means you have eyes to see even if you do wear glasses or contacts. There’s a start. While confined to home, we redid the inside and planted a garden. It was good, as well as needed and the time was right. The message here is never, ever give up. No matter what!

Manitoba is fortunate to have services for a variety of situations. Just make sure as the Fall sets in and wWinter comes our way, to ask and look into what is available for you. Whatever it is you need assistance with. You may be surprised at what you find when you seek! You may be amazed to find people so ready to listen to you.

Our Church is a warm and welcoming place where you can find peace and folks willing to lend an ear. (with social distancing and masks of course). So what have you learned about yourself in the past six months? Reverend Glenn will be talking about that very subject on Sunday October 18th. We look forward to seeing you, and know our Services will be held in the gymnasium for the rest of this calendar year. God Bless!

Good News and Bad News!

I’ll give you the bad news first……We are unable to have our first service this Sunday (September 20th)

The Good News is…….

Services will resume on October 18th, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. in the gym at the Sunova Center. We will be social distanced and masks are mandatory.

We will have masks on hand for anybody who doesn’t have one.

Church Services

As most of you folks know, our Church is closed for the summer months of July and August. Both of us want to wish you all, the very best that the summer of 202 can offer.

Just know we are only a phone call away (204) 390-6609 or if an emergency (204) 338-5505. Do your best to be kind to yourself and others. Our world is in dire need of your kindness and positive thoughts. For each picture of misery you see, just know there are many stills of wonder and grandeur that you can find when you look for the positive.

Remember the proof provided by quantum theories that have shown positive thoughts are hundreds of times stronger than negative ones. You have the ability to change your world if you choose to do so. Nothing is beyond what you can envision and imagine for yourself. The only thing standing in your way is you. Enjoy our beautiful Manitoba summer and remember to live fully one day at a time. Live the moment!

Hopefully September will have some form of normalcy, and life can start the Fall with a new norm, a better one at that! Take care and God Bless each and every one of you. We will see you then!

A hearty and wonderful greeting to all Father’s on this very special day! So many ways to say Father. Dad, Daddy, Poppo, Papa, and all nationalities with their Father pronunciations. There are Step-Fathers, Grandfathers, old Fathers and young Fathers. There are those whose children are not of the same familial bloodline, who love and treat those children so very lovingly and who consider these children as their own! Hats off to these wonderful men!

There is a saying, “Anyone can be a Father, but it takes a special man to be a Dad!” For those lucky and loved children who have men in their lives such as these….well you are well respected and looked up to. When we were children, we used to say to our parents, “There is Father’s Day, Mother’s Day… when is it Children’s Day?” The inevitable answer from our parents was “Every day is Children’s Day!”

Father’s Day is the one day of the year, a special tribute is made (and rightly so) to these very special men. So many times Father’s are taken for granted. Children sometimes don’t know or even realize what personal sacrifices are made by these amazing men. All the incredible things Father’s do for their families are done, so willingly! Today we celebrate you! May God Bless each and every one of you today and always!

Hello Folks! There are so many ways to pray and a multitude of prayers that have been created over the centuries by every religion throughout the world. It is a way people worship God, talk to God, ask for answers, look for ways of living that will bring health, wealth and happiness.

The situation our world finds itself in with regards to the Pandemic has many, many people world-wide looking up to the sky and asking, praying for an end to this scourge. Many folks feel deeply as their lives have changed and not always for the better.

We say that prayer is asking God and meditation is listening to God. People don’t always know the way of prayer, don’t always know how to start and are wondering if there is a format. It is not a matter of how you fold your hands or even if you fold your hands at all. Sometimes you can just “feel” a prayer, standing in nature looking up to the blue, blue of the summer sky, opening your arms, spreading hands and fingers and feeling the joy in your whole body, heart, mind and soul.

We have a prayer we open our Service with, and it is beautiful, with great meaning. Just pray.

Oh Creator of All, permeating the entire Universe. Honour and Glory to You.
Your Divine Love pervades, is within and blesses all. Your Natural Law guides on the physical and Spiritual planes. Your Grace and Spiritual energy sustain us abundance prevails. All life is growth, so we judge not ourselves or others. Lead us on our paths, inspire us, and heal us with your White Light, Life and Love are continuous, For all is God and Perfection. Amen!

Sunday May 31, 2020 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn a d Heather

Hello Folks!

Hard to believe the 5th month of our year 2020 ends today. Heading into June tomorrow, gives the feeling this year is passing by at warp speed (with apologies to Captain Kirk) How fast time is passing….we will be out and about before you know it, physical distancing included of course.

We wanted to talk briefly about a short line from an obituary we read many years ago. The obit was of a gentleman who was a dearly loved Husband and Father, well loved by his family, and his friends. We don’t remember his name, as it was awhile ago. We don’t remember the particulars of the obit. However what we do remember was the love with which the family took to tell the world about this man who was so incredible in life. So what made this obit so different from all the others the Winnipeg Free Press has printed over the decades?

Many people have written over the years, about their loved ones who had left such a mark in their lives after their passing. Here’s the thing about this one. Just before the end of their tribute, they took a line from their Dad and told us what he had said. They said their Dad made it his mission for every family member to have:
“A place for everything, and everything in its place.” They said their Dad drove them crazy with this saying and this was said frequently. We had to laugh! How many times have our parents given us advice which we then laughed, rolled our eyes and went on with life. Remembering later on what our parents said as we grew wisdom. Funny tho’ that this one saying from their Dad had stuck with us, complete strangers at that! When we had a tendency to let things go, to be too tired to do anything else, we would say this line to each other and knuckle down to do the remaining task….at least we tried to make the effort.

Now with Covid and keeping us home bound; it was a good time to get a lot things in our home into better, more effective working order. The first rule of business was just this saying. Make a place for everything, then keep everything in its place. What a sense of accomplishment to finally achieve this. We often think of this man’s saying. Little does his family know what their beloved Dad said, has made a difference in the life of complete strangers. Stranger still, we have repeated this often to our own family and friends..

So what is it in the various areas of your lives, that you need to have a place for everything and everything in its place. So much can be read into this. Also what are some “gems” and sayings that have made a difference to you and have resonated with such upliftment, you have repeated it yourself to your family friends and neighbours alike. We need to remember that we don’t always have influence in people lives. They may not remember us, but they may remember our words and what we have said! God Bless!

Good Morning Folks! We missed sending a message for Mother’s Day and the long weekend. Sometimes life just happens and it isn’t all bad, sometimes its very good. We were glad it was the latter, and regret we didn’t have the time to even sit for a few moments and pen a note to you.

Life is slowly opening up with government health regulations easing with regards to being once again in the public, and with other people. Still, the time at home is at hand, and with it the close proximity of being with family.

By now, two and a half months later, your emotions with loved ones has probably run the course with every emotion coming to the surface…..good and the not so good. We would like to mention a few thoughts, that may help with those emotions that can be trying at times.

We make our own lives wherever we are. To your friends you continue to communicate with be thankful. Friendship beautifies life so much. Remember friends may come and friends may go. To those friendships that go, send them away with good thoughts of them finding what they are looking for in a friend. Life has an amazing turn around of bringing people back into our lives, you just never know. Make your parting, or letting go, especially an emotional one or a negative one, that of you letting go and asking for an emotional healing from your Spirit Guides. “Go with my blessings, but just go!” This phrase we attribute to a friend long passed, who had to leave a very destructive friendship behind, in order to have a better emotional life.

For those relationships that need a tune-up and are still wanted, just remember, yes, you can criticize in a constructive, helpful way, saying how the relationship makes you feel, and stay to praise! An old saying from down home says, “Come in to criticize and remain to praise!”

For yourself just remember to remember this to help you move forward. We must regret our mistakes and learn from them, never carrying them into the future with us. There is always a second chance, and it is called tomorrow. Go into your mornings with gratitude for the positives you have in your life, all the gifts you are blessed with and as Willie Nelson says, once again, press the “delete” button on yesterday! God Bless!

Hello Folks! Tomorrow starts the beginning of loosening the grip Covid-19 has had in Manitoba and around the world. Most people are still reticent about venturing out into the public and can’t say as we blame them. Just remember common sense will lead you well, and listening to your inner voice and how it makes you feel.

We’ve have said in the past, “if in doubt, don’t” and a certain amount of care needs to be practiced to keep you and those you love protected from this pandemic.

Our Message today is the famous saying by Andrew Jackson Davis. “In all things keep an even mind.” This is what we call the Golden Staff of Life. Now more than ever when your thoughts can be shaken, your life maybe uncertain, your job, your relationships upended, keep this saying front and centre in your mind. It takes you out of yourself and gives a perspective that is different.

As you go on your way today, and go forward this week, with temptations to feel despondent coming into your pathway; repeat often and as the situation arises…In All Things Keep An Even Mind. God Bless!

Sunday, April 26th Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks!   In the past month, with everything being the “new norm” it can bring about a seismic shift in how we process change.

How many times have your heard the expression “Your not going to change him! (or her/them)  This seems to apply frequently to people who are stuck in their ways or habits, seniors who like their routine or those who are just stubborn.  Change and taxes are pretty much what humankind has lived with throughout the ages.  Even the change called death.

Today however, we want to speak to you about the everyday changes as we try to adapt as our lives unfold.  Remember we can only live in the moment, one day at a time. Lately it seems difficult to make long range plans or decisions because what happens every day changes rapidly.  Especially now with the pandemic facing all of us.

Before you focus too intently on what is happening in today’s world, take a step back and check your state of mind.  Are the changes you are making, or planning to make, done in the heat of the moment?  Decisions you are making, are they rash decisions or those that will enhance your life.

How are your impulsive decisions affecting those around you, or those you love.  Sometimes impulsive decisions can be fun for all.  Taking that country ride right in the middle of a chore or work project.  Making pizza for supper instead of that gourmet meal you planned a few days ago.

What we are endeavoring to say is change is a part of life.

Even tho’ everyone knows this, now a days this takes on a new deeper meaning.  It feels more intense.  Decisions seem to weigh more heavily upon us and the changes it brings.  The more major the decision, the more it would be prudent to take that step back and look at your state of mind, and what is happening in your life right now.  Then you know that a good change can be made.  Thinking about it for a bit, you may change how that decision will work out for the betterment of all.  As the song says, “times they are a-changin”

God Bless
