This week we bring you a third article on the Serenity Prayer, this one by the wonderful Rev. Dr. Rainbow Johnson. She beautifully weaves together the work of Bill Wilson, Ernest Holmes, and Reinhold Niebuhr, plus a bit of Abraham Maslow.
Continuing on the topic of Serenity via our guest posts this month, we are again honored to bring you a powerful piece by the Rev. Dr. Jane Claypool, a beloved Science of Mind minister who made her transition last year. You may read the original post here.
The experience of spiritual awakening is unique to the individual. When it happens, how it feels, where it takes place, and the life changes that ensue differ from person to person.
Just in time for Independence Day, we are delighted to bring you a wonderful article from Rev. Lynn Osborne, pastor of the Center for Spiritual Living in Sequim, Washington. If you are like us, thinking about freedom this week, then we know you will enjoy reading today’s post.
This week we are pleased to reprint an article by Patricia Boyer, an accomplished author and editor. Ms. Boyer skillfully traces a powerful line of connection from Transcendentalism to New Thought to Alcoholics Anonymous. She briefly mentions the influence of Fox’s Sermon on the Mount on AA, a topic we plan to explore in greater depth on this blog.
It happens to all of us at some point in recovery: Life feels overwhelming. And for whatever reason, in that moment, we experience the “urge.”
We are human, after all, so beating ourselves up for momentarily considering reverting to an old behavior (drinking, using, gambling, etc.) is never effective. It is neither bad nor wrong to have these feelings or urges; what matters is how we choose to navigate the challenge.
Today we are honored to share some inspirational words of wisdom along with an amazing example of “how it works” from Reverend Carol Wilke. She is the Founder and Senior Minister for Heart, Mind& Spirit Recovery – a Center For Spiritual Living Focus Ministry.
Our guest author this week is Rev. Karen Linsley, author of the newly-released book, A New Thought Journey through the 12 Steps. Be sure to check out her book and visit her site via the links below this post. Enjoy!
