New Thought topic: ‘In My Father’s House are Many Mansions’


By Lisa Burnson
Special to The PREVIEW
As Father’s Day approaches, we prepare to celebrate fathers’ contributions. Men comprise half the population — that’s a lot of celebrating. And celebrate we should, for fathers deserve all the thanks and honor we can give them.
But some have fallen short, as we are human. And humans have forever fallen short of divine ideals. No one has been perfect in human form, except that one who came to earth to show us the way. Jesus often spoke of the Father and the relationship of the Father to the Son and how important this relationship is. He gave us an understanding of the Father as the Divine Mind of which humankind has access at any time if only we go within and listen. Asking for divine guidance is our heritage. Yet many find it difficult and feel unworthy. But, if a father builds you a mansion, who are you to deny his gift? And if he deems you worthy, how can you be anything less?
This Sunday, June 16, at 10 a.m., all are welcome to join our speaker, Janie Garms, RN, as she brings our message of divine mind working through us to bring progress in our understanding of divine ideals, and how to manifest them in our lives.
We will have a small gift for all fathers, including those who have nurtured a niece, nephew or four-legged youngster.
