    Sunday Talk: Trick or Treatment

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk title for Sunday, October 31, is “Trick or Treatment!” I always love it when Sundays fall on specific holidays, because it makes it easy to know what to talk about! We’ll have some Halloween fun, learn a bit about the holiday (holy-day in some cultures), and also explore some aspects of affirmative prayer (Spiritual Mind Treatment). It’s going to be fun! Our pre-service…

    Sunday Talk: On the Way to the Top

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk for Sunday, October 24, is “On the Way to the Top.” Many of us dream of making it to the top of whatever we’re passionate about. We read books and take classes on how to do it. We find gurus and teachers who we think will lead us there. However, maybe the secret to making it to the top is different than we…

    Sunday Talk: This is True and That is True

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk for Sunday, October 17, is “This is True and That is True.” If it sounds familiar, it is because I had planned to give this talk last month, but wasn’t able to. So I’ll try again Sunday! These days, it seems like we get so much conflicting information — depending on where it comes from and what we’re looking for. However, we strive…

    Sunday Talk: When a Leaf Falls.

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk for this Sunday, October 10, is “When a Leaf Falls.” It stems from an idea I got from a colleague about gratitude. I’m going to adopt it for my spiritual toolbelt, and I’ll bet you will too! Plus, it fits in perfectly with this weekend’s celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving (or as Canadians call it, Thanksgiving…) Our pre-service meditation, with Rev. Monika Krammer, begins…

    Hi all. Our wonderful Rev. Marjorie Contenti will be speaking Sunday, September 26, on “Fall Back; Spring Ahead.” Does it sometimes feel like you’re taking one step forward and two steps back?

    Sunday Talk: The Power of Suggestion

    Hi all. I missed last week because I had experienced some symptoms and decided to stay home. Many thanks to Rev. Monika Krammer for stepping in last minute. She was great. This Sunday, September 19, I am going to speak on “The Power of Suggestion.” We usually think of it as something negative (and it can be). However, it can also be turned around into a powerful tool for transformation.…

    Sunday Talk: This is True and That is True

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk for Sunday, September 12, is “This is True and That is True.” These days, it seems like we get so much conflicting information — depending on where it comes from and what we’re looking for. However, we strive (to the best of our ability) to live from a place of Truth (with a capital T). Join me for a “truthful” conversation about truth.…

    Sunday Talk: Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work We Go

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk title for Sunday, September 5, is “Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work We Go,” in honour of Labour Day. We’ll take a look at how our work (of any kind) can be a “labour of love” rather than an obligation. I think it will be fun!

    Sunday Talk: Find Your Person

    Hi all. The talk title for Sunday, August 29, is “Find Your Person,” with Rev. Monika Krammer. You know how we are sometimes looking for guidance?

    Sunday Talk: A Light in this World

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk title for Sunday, August 22, is, “A Light in this World.” I heard a phrase the other day that described what many of us are experiencing these days: “Covid Fatigue.” Even though we KNOW we are lights in this world, right now it can be a challenge to stay optimistic. Please join me on Sunday for a conversation about how we can help…

    Sunday Talk: Questions and Answers

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. This Sunday, August 15, will be our sixth in-person service! I’m going to take advantage of having people in the house by doing Question and Answer! Basically, people write questions about the teaching, metaphysics, or the Universe, and I do my best to answer as many as I can. It is always super fun, spontaneous, and interesting. If you won’t be attending in person, but…

    Sunday Talk: Are Your Buttons Gettin’ Pushed?

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My talk title for Sunday, August 1, is “Are Your Buttons Gettin’ Pushed?” I’ve heard it said that the reason the people closest to us know where our buttons are, is because they put them there! Join me as we discuss how to move the buttons out of reach, for everyone’s peace of mind. Our pre-service meditation with practitioner Lance Rath begins at 10:00 am…

    Sunday Talk: Letting Go

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My topic for Sunday, July 25, is, “Letting Go.” I think it is fair to say that during this time of Covid-19 and its aftermath, many of us have experienced some loss. Join me as we talk about learning to “let go,” with grace — trusting that right action is taking place, even if we can’t see it yet. Our pre-service meditation with practitioner Sabrina…

    Sunday Talk: The Path Taken

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. We had a great “first” Sunday last week — our doors were open for the first time in 16 months! This week, my talk title is, “The Path Taken.” As we start to come out of “the great pause,” many of us find ourselves on a new path. Question: how do we know we’re really on our path? Or someone else’s? Our pre-service meditation with…

    Sunday Talk: Freedom ins Your Birthright

    Hi all. Dr. Pat here. My topic for Sunday, July 4, is “Freedom is Your Birthright.” Yes, it’s partially because it is Independence Day in my home country (old habits die hard). But it’s also about the metaphysical meaning of freedom, and how understanding what that actually means can change your world! Our pre-service meditation with practitioner Valda Harris begins at 10:00 am MST, and the Sunday Celebration starts at…
