Dear Beloved Community,

As I sit in my office, staring out the window at the beautiful environment our Center is nestled, I am struck with awe and a sense of deep peace. It was faith that created this Center for Spiritual Living. Faith that has kept it alive and well for so many years. Faith that brought me here, and faith that keeps us all moving
forward.

Germany Kent, a dynamic journalist once wrote, “With God, you are stronger than your struggles and more fierce than your fears. God provides comfort and strength to those who trust. Be encouraged, keep standing, and know that
everything’s going to be alright.” What true and relevant words. During the month of August, I want to invite us to look within ourselves and explore our faith.
Explore what it is we are putting our faith in and most importantly how we are
allowing our faith to move us forward.

Dr. Ernest Holmes once said, “It is done unto you as you believe.” I believe that faith acts like a law because it is operated upon by a law.” There is a spiritual law of faith, which, when utilized and held in the forefront of our hearts and minds pushes us forward in action. What we hold the most belief in, either positive or negative, will determine the direction the forward movement of our faith is going.

I invite us to remember together that if we believe in the good and allow our thoughts and actions to represent that belief, we become the living embodiment of Divinity in action, for something and against nothing.

With Deep Love & Respect,

Rev. Nicole Von Atzingen
Spiritual Director
