New Thought topic: ‘Embracing Change is a Spiritual Practice’


    By Lisa Burnson
    Special to The PREVIEW
    “What we are now — or what we now have and experience — is the result of what we have thought; and the answer to what we shall be is contained in what we are now thinking, for we can change our thinking.” — Dr. Ernest Homes.
    All are welcome to join the New Thought Center for Inspirational Living (NTC) this Sunday, Nov. 3, at 10:30 a.m. as we present “Embracing Change Is A Spiritual Practice.”
    Our guest speaker will be Claudia Milner, M.A., RscP, licensed Religious Science practitioner. We will be identifying the anatomy of change, defining stages of change and applying spiritual practice to embrace and navigate change in our life. Milner has over 25 years experience as an educator and is trained to help others expand beliefs to heal roadblocks through coaching and prayer.
    Following the service, Milner will be conducting a 90-minute workshop on “Spiritual Practices to Embrace Change.” Please contact NTC for more information.
    We welcome people of all religions, genders, cultures and races to our services, where we celebrate the Science of Mind and positive thinking.
