"Awakening to The Presence of God Through Conscious Spiritual Transformation"

 
Rev. Brian Grandon



Brian considered himself an atheist during his teens, then following a radical spiritual transformation at age 19, he began attending Charismatic churches, eventually transversing the spectrum of Christianity searching for higher Truth.

During a meeting with  a Buddhist and Hindu, it became apparent that their inner spiritual practices were virtually identical. At that moment, Brian recognized the prevailing truth in their respective religions, that each was immersed in the same Holy Spirit. He considers himself spiritual, and seeing through the lens of pluralistic Christianity, dismisses the notion of the "we’re right and you’re wrong" exclusivity common in most religions.

"When you walk into our church, you're accepted just as you are, right now, today. You don't have to ascribe to a particular dogma for acceptance. You are accepted and loved already.

Welcome home!


"The experience of God is available at all
times and is within, but awaits choice."

David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D.

"Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be called out is to follow the harmonious law of the soul's enfoldment."

Spiritual Law of Reconciliation



Jesus perfectly embodied God’s heart for racial reconciliation. For example, most Jews of Jesus’ day despised Samaritans as racially impure and as heretics. They avoided physical or social contact with them if at all possible. Yet Jesus went out of his way to have contact with them, even touching some who were lepers. Moreover, he consistently treated them with respect, even making them the heroes in some of his stories.

Love Your Enemies

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.
 He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."

Matthew 5:43-48


Similarly, most Jews of Jesus’ day looked down on Gentiles and had a particular disdain for the Romans, the group who ruled Palestine. Yet Jesus treated them as equals. Most remarkably, Jesus was willing to interact with and serve Roman centurions. These were high-ranking officials in the oppressive Roman military and were thus despised by Jews. Jesus went so far as to praise the faith of a Roman centurion as being greater than the faith of any Jew. This behavior was absolutely scandalous and revolutionary. It reveals that where God reigns, the Powers that fuel racism will be confronted and racial walls will be torn down. Where God reigns, God’s vision for a united human race will be in the process of being reconciled.

Unity Season of Non-Violence



"Non-violence is absolute commitment to the way of love. Love is not emotional bash; it is not empty sentimentalism. It is the active outpouring of one's whole being into the being of another."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

"We may never be strong enough to be entirely non-violent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.

The attainment of freedom, whether for a person,
a nation or a world, must be in exact proportion to the attainment of non-violence for each."


M. K. Gandhi


Weekly Fellowship Activities

Prayer, Meditation & Healing Service
Facilitated by Robert Bright

Wed: 2:00 - 3:30 P.M. & 6:30 - 8:00 P.M.


Need a Quite Respite from the World?

We invite you to our Prayer, Meditation and Healing Service that provides a 90-minute retreat from the busyness and anxieties of the day.  Relax into a time of meditation and contemplation within the background of glorious Gregorian chants and soothing music, affirmative community prayer, interactive stations of devotion, one-on-one prayer and healing touch.

Our beautiful chapel offers an inspiring backdrop to devotional space to Light a Candle to the people; thoughts or ideas that you wish to bring light.  A Gratitude Wall to express your thankfulness to the Divine.  A Burning Bowl where you release limiting thoughts and attachments by lighting them afire in written form.  Experience the joining of Substance and Spirit in Communion as grapes and unleavened bread are taken in prayer.  And celebrate the seasons of the earth through purifying water in a moment of reflection in a space that honors Indigenous Spirituality.  Prayers at each station enhance the devotional experience.

Chaplains and Healing Touch practitioners may be present to offer one-on-one service.  This is an informal event, and participants are welcome to attend all or part of the service.  Come and enjoy the rich fullness of peace in this nurturing and healing experience.
