Welcome to the Center for Spiritual Living of Greater Cincinnati!

Looking for peace of mind and an uplifting spiritual community? Welcome home to the Center for Spiritual Living of Greater Cincinnati.

If your spiritual journey has taken you in a different direction than literal interpretations of the Bible and traditional Christianity, Center for Spiritual Living will spark and encourage your spiritual intellect.

If The Secret, Louise Hay, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson or Deepak Chopra have spoken to you, you’ll feel right at home at Center for Spiritual Living. Each of these wisdom teachers writes about a philosophy called New Thought. That’s what we explore at Center for Spiritual Living Greater Cincinnati.

Come join our warm, joyful, loving, non-discriminatory community Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for great music and a spiritual message. Center for Spiritual Living’s congregation is a diverse group of singles, couples and families with childcare and children’s classes too. We honor and welcome everyone, wherever you are on your personal or spiritual path.

Transformational Power of Forgiveness Playshop for March 1 Cancelled

Reverend Linda finds it necessary to cancel the Transformational Power of Forgiveness playshop March 1 immediately following the service due to the forecast of 4-6″ of snow in the area where she lives.   The playshop will be rescheduled for a date later this spring.  Have a great weekend and see you Sunday for our regular service.

During the lesson, Rev. Dee led the congregation in the Candlelighting Prayer for the fourth Sunday of the Season of Nonviolence. The audio may be a bit spotty during this time, so we have reproduced the prayer below.

The Gandhi King Chavez
Season for Nonviolence
Compassionate Activism for Global Healing

Candlelighting Prayer
Forth Sunday of the Season

Contributed by Rev. Sharon Hudson, Light of Life Church, Rancho Bernardo
(Modified by Rev. Matthew Long, Peace Unity Church.)

As I light a candle and raise this single flame to the highest level of consciousness, where all is Spirit, all is Love, and all is Peace, I know that Love, Peace and Spirit are everywhere.

Turning within I recognize the wonder and power of the Infinite Presence. The essence of this Divine Life is Wisdom, Peace and Love. I know that every person on this planet is one with this Presence. As I feel my Unity with All, I live a life committed to peace and nonviolence. I see through the eyes of compassion. I listen with understanding. I act from a powerful center of peace within me. My consciousness rests in peace for myself and for the world.

I know that through the power and wisdom of the One Mind, all life on planet Earth is being guided to live in peace. I see clearly that we are one in Spirit, in Life, in Love. I open my heart and mind to this truth now, accepting that the way is made clear for every need to be met, for deeper acceptance and understanding, for a sense of global community. I am grateful for knowing this truth.

In a spirit of Thanksgiving, I release this word to the activity of the Divine, knowing that it is already done. And So It Is.

A Small but Mighty Group

The weather outside is, well, it’s winter at its finest (or worst-est). And the snow came mightily on Saturday and for a while, it was thought that we might have to cancel our Sunday celebration service. But Rev. Dee was determined to share his message of what he learned at the national conference and so he opened the building, shoveled the steps and got ready to receive us.

The company behind our building, DeBra-Keumple, had had the parking lot plowed. That helped a lot, and we are grateful.

It was a warm, intimate service filled with love, a good message and wonderful music.

During the lesson, Rev. Linda led the congregation in the Candlelighting Prayer for the third Sunday of the Season of Nonviolence. The audio may be a bit spotty during this time, so we have reproduced the prayer below.

The Gandhi King Chavez

Compassionate Activism for Global Healing

Candlelighting Prayer
Third Sunday of the Season

Contributed by: Rev. Sandhi Scott
(Modified by Rev. Matthew Long, Peace Unity Church.)

As I light a candle and raise this single flame to the highest level of consciousness, where all is Spirit, all is Love, and all is Peace, I know that Love, Peace and Spirit are everywhere.

Peace is within us, each and all, peace is at the core of all creation and we are one with this allness, this peace, here and now.

We breathe into the peace within us and with every breath we breathe in; peace expands in our minds, our hearts and our bodies. As we breathe out we offer peace to all creation. As we harmonize our thoughts words, and action with peace, we become a presence of peace. As like attracts like, peace attracts peace. And the peace that began with a thought and conscious breath becomes manifest as peace on earth here and now.

February 18, Wednesday Evening Service cancelled due to weather. See you next week.
