Lighting the altar candles
White candle in the center:
Mother of all life, soul of our being, center of all our longing,

Celebrate our life together, giving birth in many ways;
Father-Mother Love is with us, leading to a better day.

show us how to nurture kindness, new creation’s joy to find.read more

In the Religious Science philosophy, no attempt is made to rob Jesus of his greatness or to refute his teachings. Indeed, it is based upon the words and the works of this, the most remarkable personality that every graced our planet with his presence; and until a greater figure appears, Jesus will still remain the great Way shower to mankind.read more
