Sunday May 23rd, 2021 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! We want to call our “Talk” today The Light At The End of The Tunnel. All of us world wide have been living with Covid-19 for a very long time. If we were to think ahead a year and a half, it would seem so very long in the future. Unless you have well laid out plans, large and small; a year and a half sometimes can’t be easily comprehended by most. So much can happen to change life when you look ahead like that. Anything is possible, not all plans work out, and most important of all is our undeniable gift of “choice”.

Life happens, and this past year and half has brought us a life we never could have thought of just a few years ago. Lives changed forever, families changed forever, jobs, careers, hopes and dreams all changed forever. Nobody would have thought this could happen….but it has. What now?

Where there is life, there is hope! There is a light at the end of this, a light at the end of the tunnel. What is in store for us at the end of this pandemic? Can life go back to normal? Serious questions for a serious time. As Reverends, we see folks and families with questions on their anxious faces. What now indeed.

Life definitely will go on and go forward. There is a Light at the end of this vast tunnel. Now is the time to reinvent yourself, check out your plans for the future, try something completely different, and now is the time for these thoughts to whirl around your noggin so as to have them flesh out in your life when you arrive at the end of the Covid tunnel.

New beginnings are always exciting! A new start feels refreshing! Pick up your head and see this light at the end. As we say (and more than once)…thoughts are things. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how young you are, what your situation in life is, a brand new day can bring you the reward of thinking just what it is that brings you joy, what brings you happiness, what brings you contentment.

For those whose lives have dramatically changed with the death of a loved one, a family fractured and ending, relationships strained and separation inevitable. That light at the end of the tunnel is still a light for you. Infinite Intelligence, Creator God, our Brother Jesus of Nazareth, the highest and the best Universal and Spiritual Teachers and Healers will always be there for you…..Always! Remember our Fourth Principal, Continuous Existence of the Soul and Its Personality. That light at the end of the tunnel, is life eternal. That light at the end of the tunnel is your new beginning. Make it happen as all life is growth. Life and Love are continuous , for all is God and Perfection! God Bless!

Sunday May 9th, 2021 “Mother’s Day” Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Happy Mother’s Day to all the great Mothers, Grandmothers, Nana’s, Kookum’s, Baba’s, Oma’s, Nonas, Nannies and caregivers! All the very best to you for a wonderful and hopefully relaxing day with your family and loved ones.

No one can deny the plethora of cards, flowers, chocolates and gifts of every sort that are available by happy retailers, when this day comes around. So many people wanting to honour their mothers and wives with gifts to show their love and appreciation for the women they are. As all folks know, it is the one day a year, set aside, to pay that extra attention to the women they love and respect.

With all these sentimental tributes, we remember those women who are crossed over into Spirit World, and love us still. Love, being the most positive emotion of all, never dies with the death of the body. You take that love with you. The powerful emotion of love can still be sent to those we have loved and just know it is reciprocated!

Not all maternal relationships are filled with positive emotions. There are strained relationships, and relationships that are non-existent. If this brings a sadness to your heart, or a longing for a relationship that may not happen, we want to show you a way on how to turn it around. Firstly, since “thoughts are things”….place in your mind a picture of her face in a beautiful picture frame….an oval picture frame, with a pretty pewter filigree around it. Place the sun behind her and a wonderful, joyful smile on her face. Next, send that off onto the ethers, let it go.

Two things will happen! Firstly, you will receive a healing for doing something very meaningful and positive. As it goes off, the weight will lift from your shoulders. It will be very freeing! The second thing that happens, is wherever she is she will get a positive feeling, a positive thought. Regardless of the outcome, a sad situation can be made better by doing this.

So folks! For all the wonderful Mothers in our lives, may the gift of love be sent to you on this very special Mother’s Day, no matter where you are! God Bless!

Sunday May 2nd, 2022 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! May is here! Many years ago I worked with a teacher, ‘Mrs. Barnett’. She was an elderly woman getting ready to retire from teaching the little ones, and each year, she started out the first day of May with this little ditty. “Today is the first day of May, hooray! Lets dance in the garden today!” The lilt of the song…. was wonderful!”

Well, the weather and the underlying climate change has done little to bring us the spring flowers; and the happiness of that carefree song seems a bit foreign to all of us who have lived through the difficulties of the past year.
It would be so wonderful and freeing to run outside and hug friends and neighbours without the restrictions put into place to save us from a deadly virus. It would be so wonderful and freeing to dash through fields of flowers and enjoy a multitude of blooms that can uplift your emotions as high as the sky!

Lets take a moment and remember this is so temporary. Yes, spring feels later than usual; the reluctant, capricious, beautiful Manitoba spring weather feels like it is stalling, along with the life dealing changes of Covid-19 and its variants.

Good things lie in wait folks! Believe it, as it will come true. One day the weather will turn for the better and last longer than the short spurts we have lived with recently. The gardens will be planted, the grass fully green, our warm Manitoba sunshine (for which we are famously known) will suddenly beam down, and the restrictions will eventually, slowly be lifted as we together, do what is necessary to end the scourge of Covid.

When you begin to think that things won’t change. When you begin to think and feel you are stuck. When you begin to feel sour on life. When you begin to believe nothing will shift and with a sigh, feel tired or listless. When negative comes at you from all sides, remember some of the phrases we have spoken of in the past. Remember, we are thinking of you!

Remember, Spiritualism is a breath of fresh air! We have many wonderful and loving Spirit Guides! We have the highest and the best to help us…..Master Teachers, MasterHealers…. we have an Infinite Intelligence that can Heal us, physically, Spiritually and emotionally with the White Light of love. Remember to……
“Go forward, look upward and each day will find the sun before you and the clouds behind you.”

“Thoughts are things!”

“Think positive for all aspects of your life.”

“Positive thoughts are hundreds of times stronger than negative ones.”

“There is always a light at the end of a dark tunnel.”

“Never, never, never, ever give up!” ……God Bless!

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!

Sunday March 21st, 2021- Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Spring is here! Along with the much anticipated warmer weather, the anticipated vaccines are now underway. Both of us have appointments already starting with Glenn tomorrow. There are many people who are waiting for their turn, and there are many folks who are nervous about this with controversy over side affects and others have made a personal choice to not have the vaccine. Whatever your choice, just make sure it is the best one for you and your family.

Spiritualism has always been one of “self”. Not in a conceited way…just one of growth of your triangle of life; Spiritual, Physical and Emotional. Being complete with health, wealth and happiness, which according to all avatars of every culture and religion, is your birthright! Health is very obvious, and so is the Emotional part of your Triangle of Life. Wealth encompasses more than just the wealth of money. It is definitely a big part of it with many people striving for success. Wealth is having all these outer things, the home, the successful business, being debt free. Wealth however, includes to a “greater” degree, what people really want. That is the happiness of living a full and enriched life. Just remember Wealth is a mindset. It’s about appreciating everything we have. Remember all the kindness you/we have shown over time, to a people who are so starved in their Triangle of Life.

With the gift of Spring, lets do what my great Aunt Lottie said so many years ago. “Go forward, look upward, and you will find the sun before you and the clouds behind you.”
God Bless each and everyone of you!

Sunday March 7th, 2021 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Beautiful weather is happening and what an uplift for our emotions! The wind may be just a bit cold, but it will bring in our new Manitoba spring. It can’t be soon enough after the -30’s of this past winter. Glenn was out fishing up north in Riverton Friday, and what a day! It was just the perfect ice- fishing day. The fishing was wonderful the catching wasn’t.

The sky was the most intense shade of blue, no clouds to be seen. The sun warm as toast, didn’t need a jacket at all. No wind. A bald eagle flew low over our heads and two ravens talking with other came over as well. All of a sudden catching fish didn’t make a difference; it was all about being out there.
Nature! This day was so good for the power of the soul. Being in the grand outdoors out on the vast expanse of the lake, deeply breathing the freshest of air, it was a healing in its own right. Being in nature, no matter whether walking, hiking, woods, trails, or just fishing on the lake can make you feel so good. You feel rested at the end of the day and your night sleep is uninterrupted.

Give it a try! Dress up for the weather and if you can’t move well, a chair outside for even a few minutes of fresh air will turn your emotions around. Remember to think positive, ask for what you need when you pray or meditate and start it all off with gratitude in your heart for the things you already have, the friends and the family that are loving to you! Enjoy the day and may God Bless!

Sunday February 14, 2021 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Today is Valentines Day! At -30 degrees below, it is good day to hunker down with your loved ones and watch a show, or movie (with popcorn) and just enjoy each others company.
Many folks may not know how this day came to be, and there are many writings on the bringing about of this wonderful day. The Catholic Church ascribe three different Saints as “Valentine” or “Valentinus” all of whom were martyred. The truth behind the legend is murky, however the emphasis of his appeal is of a sympathetic, heroic and most importantly – romantic figure.

Some claim the Christian Churches in an effort to Christianize the pagan celebration of “Lupercalia” brought Valentines into fruition. Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to “Faunus”, Roman god of Agriculture. It welcomed Spring to the land. However at the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius deemed this celebration as “un- Christian.” He then declared February 14th as St. Valentines day.

Of course through the ages, it gained momentum to the day we now celebrate. During Victorian times the celebration began to flourish to the way we celebrate today. It is a great day to think of those whom we love dearly as well as the romantic holiday has now become.

Remember, love being the highest vibration, is told in every tradition, every religion, every philosophy, every culture throughout the world May this day bring you love, peace and joy. We wish you all, health, wealth and happiness as you all so richly deserve all of life’s blessings. Don’t forget the most important love is firstly the love of self. Not as selfish; just let the love of self be a healthy, and healing love. All this fits into our Spiritualist beliefs, because love is the ultimate, expression of Infinite Intelligence. God Bless!

Sunday January 10th, 2021 New Year Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! Its a brand New Year! World wide, people are having hope for a better year for all aspects of their lives, for themselves and our world. Positive, positive, positive, think positive for all aspects of your life. Your Physical, Spiritual, and Emotional. Remember positive thoughts are hundreds of times stronger than negative ones. Ask Spirit to have your positive thoughts be incredibly stronger and your negative thoughts to be weaker. It works when you set your mind to it.

Both of us are looking forward to the time we are able to meet in our Church, and resume our classes. Social distancing and masks will be a way of life for awhile yet. To see your wonderful faces will be so uplifting for us and others. Vaccines are on their way! So much to look forward to in 2021.
