Theme for the month of October is:


          Often I enjoy re-reading an early writing of Ernest Holmes. Today I felt an urge to be reminded yet again of who I am, what I am capable of, and yes, encouraged to allow my “individual spark” to glow and grow.

          Holmes’ book, Can We Talk To God, addresses those very questions. And I noticed that as I typed the title, my “Tools” icon lit up, apparently questioning the correctness of the word “to”. We certainly say, perhaps not often enough, that we pray to God, but I wonder now. Does questioning of the simple two-letter word “to” indicate we don’t truly believe we have the ear of God? That speaking out our plea is of little worth?

          “We could not derive much comfort, pleasure or joy from talking to the principle of chemical affinity (yet we do derive a great benefit from learning that such a law exists). Neither can we hope to get much satisfaction from thinking of God only as an Infinite It.

          “The heart longs for, the mind comprehends and the intellect needs such a contact…It is fundamental to our belief that there is a Presence in the universe with which we may consciously communicate and which will consciously respond to such communication.”

          It is my experience that when I fully grasp and “feel” this inner Presence it is indeed more than feasible it hears and responds. Yes, I “talk” to IT. It hears before I even fully know how or what to convey.

          “There is a Power and a Presence in the universe which responds to us so completely, so perfectly, that we shall be amazed when we realize how completely, and how perfectly, but it can only operate for us through us.”

          So it is up to me to become clear and speak my prayer, my intent, my word to that Presence in order for IT to shine It’s response through me and out into my world. I do this with confidence, believing, trusting I am not only heard but answered. Then it is up to me when and if I choose to hear.

          In Joy,

                    Rev. Pat


I claim my closeness with the Inner Presence. I speak my word

knowing I am always heard and replied to in love.
