Pastor Greeting – July 2018

I would like to say thank you to the Membership for your vote to confirm me as your Pastor.  I am honored and humbled by the support shown me.

Community of Love and Seeking Growth

My hope and prayer for our church is to be a place to find love and people of like minds.  We will not all have the same opinions on all topics.  We must understand and honor another’s right to voice their views without ridicule, in the right time and place.  So I invite you to make your opinion known.  Write, call, or e-mail  me.  I look forward to hearing your perspective and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Ideas for Unfoldment Are Welcome

Several members have suggested classes and activities recently.  We welcome anyone who may have ideas.     A few of these are:   social events, variety night, a trip to a Spiritualist camp, America’s Stonehenge and Lily Dale, classes on tarot, a new healing modality and others.  Please keep these suggestions coming!

We appreciate new ideas for classes and concepts but not all appear immediately.   Everything is scrutinized and then put into a viable, working platform that must pass the state, NSAC and our insurance regulations.   Some classes are being discussed with those people that were suggested and we are preparing the schedule for the coming months and attempting to fit it with theirs.    The schedule will appear on the website as it becomes confirmed.

However, if you have brought forth a suggestion and are not willing to work on it with us, these may be delayed.    Your desires are the burning light that creates the energy.  Keep your light burning for us, help us see your ideas as clearly as you picture them, keep the light of your energy strong for us.  We need you.

Big Thank You

LASTLY: I want to thank those that have supported the Pastoral Committee during the past year.     With the help of the Board and you, we’ve made many great accomplishments.   The Pastoral Committee has now become the Pastoral Assistants Group and we will continue to work for the betterment of our church and its members.  I hope you will feel free to contact them with any concerns you may have, or suggestions to be made.

I thank you all for your continued prayers as I pray for you.  God Bless.

About Pastor Judy

Being fortunate enough to have earned the title of Licentiate Minister, I am
continuing my studies with the Morris Pratt Institute. My desire is to gain further
knowledge and hopefully be blessed to become an Ordained Minister and National
Spiritualist Teacher, learning never ends as a Spiritualist.

As Pastor of The Church of Spiritual Life in Derry, N.H., I have had the opportunity
to teach classes in the Philosophy of Spiritualism, Beginning Mediumship, Platform
Decorum, Healing, and Mediumship Enhancement.

My love of teaching and connection with Spirit has combined to bring a unique
perspective to my classes and the sharing of the love of Spiritualism to our
membership and community.

Please join us for our service on Sunday mornings at 10:30, and our class on
Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. We would love to see you!
