 Presidents Message

 Reverend Sandy Clark




We have moved our office and have landed in our new location, with lots of boxes.


We thought we would share with you what my office looks like as this is being written, and hopefully by our next issue we can show you that all the boxes have been opened, the contents put away, and I have an office free of boxes along with pictures on the wall.




We had some incredible helpers move us last Saturday: I believe they might still be recovering!  Thank you to Corry, Ronnie, Brian, Joe, Zeke and Gregory. It was the hottest day we have had so far this summer and they worked a very long day.


Thanks also to those who helped pack boxes before we moved; David, Janet, Sandra, Jan, Steve and of course Felecia and Corky.


If you are in the area, please stop in and say hello.  If you are willing we will even let you unpack a box or two.


Our new address is:

1361 S Winchester Blvd. Suite 115

San Jose, CA 95128


Our telephone number remains the same, 408.370.6519.   We look forward to seeing you in our new location.  


With light and love,


Happy Summer Solstice!

Divine Patterns

By Dr. Ernest Homes


Today I seek the Divine Pattern at the center of my being.

Affirming its reality,

I permit its essence to flow through me.

Claiming it as my very own,

I embrace it.

Believing its peace,

I am calm.

Living in its love,

I am unified with life.

Believing in its power,

I accept its action in my everyday affairs.

And looking at the God in man,

I see in everyone the pattern of His perfection.

All I Need to Be Is ME!

By Minister Maryellen DeVine

A friend recently loaned me the book “Dying to Be Me” by Anita Moorjani. Anita’s story really touched me and confirmed some of the things that I have been feeling are really important. Anita is East Indian and was raised in the Hindu faith. Her family lived in Hong Kong while she was growing up and she attended Catholic schools. As you can imagine, she received quite a lot of differing, and often conflicting, messages and beliefs. Her Indian culture believed that to be a good girl and good wife (to the man the parents want her to marry) is to be submissive and obedient. She had a strong will and that didn’t blend very well with the expectations put on her. She also had the Catholic nuns sharing with her that she could go to hell if she didn’t attend Catholic church. She just didn’t feel she fit in anywhere; she didn’t comply with expectations very well; she spent many years feeling deep down that something must be wrong with her. She’d wonder why she couldn’t just be like everyone else. Why couldn’t she conform to what others wanted her to be and do?

In addition, as an adult, she watched two people very close to her suffer and die from cancer. She was very afraid of getting cancer and also of the treatment for it. She did get cancer and after four years of it, slipped into a coma and her organs started shutting down. She had a near death experience; watching from above everything that was happening. While she was in this state, she experienced amazing oneness and love and understandings. In this state she received a knowing that her beliefs and fears contributed to the manifestation of disease in her body. She realized that our Spirits are pure love and absolutely magnificent. She received the understanding that if she were to decide to go back into her body, but now living from a place of knowing that WHO SHE REALLY IS all she needs to be, that she would be healed. She did come back and to the surprise of the hospital staff, her cancer was gone.

She now shares with people the importance of being your Authentic Self; of not worrying about being the way you think others want you to be. Know that you are meant to be the person you came here to be. That “in this tapestry of life, we’re all connected. Each one of us is a gift to those around us, helping each other be who we are, weaving a perfect picture together.”

I have been feeling that we are being nudged by Spirit to live more authentically. You know, the best thing about each of us is our uniqueness. Wouldn’t it be horrible if everyone was a cookie-cutter version of each other? We all have our own brilliant Light to shine.

What can you do to take steps toward being more of your Authentic Self? You can start with small things. Perhaps you might wear a piece of clothing or accessory that reflects the real you. Perhaps you choose to join an African Dance or Belly Dance class instead of a Pilates class. Explore what those steps might be for you. I bet it will feel so good

As Cyndi Lauper sings, “I see your true colors shining through…And that’s why I love you.” You are indeed too FABULOUS to fit in!
