Welcome! This is a Center that advocates for the living of life according to spiritual principle. We’re here to assist you in undertaking a journey of positive change based on personal growth and spiritual understanding.
If you click on this link, What Is Spiritual Living? you will be directed to an outstanding video recently created by Brian Akers of Orange Country, California. It's a great presentation and also clearly protrays what "we believe".
We gather on Sundays to share our enthusiasm in a contemporary worship experience. This may not look like the church you grew up in. The focus of our joy-filled celebrations is on what’s right with ourselves and the world we live in. The lessons (as well as all our classes) center on some aspect of the human condition and how we may use the creativity of our thought to help create fuller experience of life.
Our philosophy is best expressed by a truth teaching—one articulated by Jesus in the tradition of the Perennial Philosophy—“It is done unto you as you believe”. That teaching is based on the assumption that there is an “essential unity” in the cosmos and that all of manifestation is an expression of the Divine.
We affirm the worthiness of all people, without exception, and are dedicated to assisting all in leading effective, gracious lives which contribute to the greater good. We affirm your right to health, peace, effective relationships, purpose and an abundance of all good things. And while it is true that you can create the life you desire, we tend to stress the notion that having the life of your choice won’t be ultimately satisfying to you unless you are also working to create a life that works for all. As Theodore Roosevelt remarked over a hundred years ago, “This won’t be a good country for anyone to live in, until it’s a good country for everyone to live in.”
The director of this Center is John M. McLean. He is a graduate of George Washington University, the University of Creation Spirituality/Naropa and the Unity School Ministerial Education Program. He began his spiritual journey right here, in this ministry as a student of Dr. David J. Walker’s. His is a Licensed Religious Science Practitioner and a Licensed Minister with the International Centers for Spiritual Living, the successor organization to Religious Science International.
His personal world-view is that we inhabit a primarily (and most importantly) creative universe—not a competitive one. When this is realized, life can begin to reveal itself with a generosity and an ease never thought possible.
Your seeking has drawn you to this place on this day and we expect it will be a memorable one. We are honored to share with you what we know and what we have experienced as being truly helpful, supportive, and healing in our lives.
We will joyfully affirm with you that you are a perfect expression of God and entitled to a full life of joy. All the qualities that make up such a life are yours—now—only waiting to be realized by you. The life you have been seeking will be yours if you are receptive to it.
