Center for Spiritual Living™ Bellingham provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.
We honor all paths to God and can help you experience a personal relationship with God.

Theme for 2014: Pilgrimage of the Heart
2015 JANUARY MINISTER’S MESSAGE: Pilgrimage of the Heart
Happy New Year!! I am very excited about our yearly theme, “Pilgrimage of the Heart.” So excited that I have arranged for several local “sacred site” pilgrimages during this brand-new year, and I hope you will join me for those as well as attend on Sundays as you are able. Why “pilgrimage?”
A pilgrim, as defined by Merriam-Webster’s on-line dictionary, is “someone who travels to a holy place.” The Science of Mind philosophy understands that everywhere is “holy” because Spirit is everywhere present. The traveling part for us is the time and insight necessary to arrive at this realization and abide in it. In this sense, we are all pilgrims on the road of understanding!
In Medieval times, pilgrimages where a vital part of the spiritual path for thousands, and often, pilgrims would spend much time in prayer and meditation as part of their preparation for the journey ahead of them. Like those pilgrims of old, preparation is a vital part of traveling our own sacred landscape.
So to prepare for our year of pilgrimage, I have chosen to focus in January on “The SOM Pilgrim’s Pack” and will be sharing the essential wisdom tools that our philosophy offers to those ready to step out in faith and begin to transform their lives. By the end of the month my hope is that we will have a “pack” full of simple, powerful and effective tools to assist us on the journey of our lives.
Our service on February 1, 2015 - 9:30am
The SOM Pilgrim’s Pack:
The early service is an opportunity to attend a different kind of Service earlier on Sunday mornings. This Service is brief, just half an hour in length and will include prayer and a message and then lead into our regular fifteen-minute Sunday meditation.
