High Spirits - May 2019

A Magnificent May!

April “showered“ us with some very special opportunities to connect with our loved ones in both realms. Our gratitude to The Rev. Havivah Richards, NST who traveled to join us from Arizona to celebrate and commemorate the life of her mother, The Rev. Dr. Santa Cook, who served as the Pastor of our church in years past. “Thank you” to all who shared your heartfelt memories. More blessings poured over us when Rod Lathim served our church to speak. Rod is an artist, playwright and author of “The Spirit of the Big Yellow House,” just released in its 3rd edition, the story of Summerland’s founding family establishing the Summerland Spiritualist community and our church’s beginnings in the late 1800’s. Rod’s knowledge, loving warmth and spiritual connection to Summerland, to our church and to those in spirit is inspirational! What an absolute joy to have had the honor to be invited to his book signing event on Sunday evening April 28th to share in celebrating our local Spiritualist history and call in those in spirit!. The event was held in the beautiful space at Letter Perfect on Lillie Avenue in Summerland, generously hosted by proprietor, Leslie Person Ryan and her delightful staff. It was a plentiful turnout, and we are grateful to all the loving spirits, abundantly present in both the seen and unseen realms, who gathered together for a truly joyous evening!

This month, we welcome a magnificent May, highlighted by the return of our very dear friend and mentor, Robin Hodson! Robin is an International Medium and the President of the ISF, (International Spiritualist Federation, to which our national organization belongs along with over 35 countries around the globe. He is a world renowned Teacher, and Trance and Physical Medium. Robin will arrive from the UK, offering three full day workshops and two public demonstrations. (Please see flyer for details and information to pre-register.) Robin’s exceptional abilities and gentle encouragement have helped us to grow and learn and to strengthen our connections to spirit. This is a wonderful opportunity for continuing your individual unfoldment. We hope you are able to attend one or more of his offerings. Robin will also serve as our Sunday speaker on May 19. More May merriment comes our way with Sunday speakers Dr. Paul Schaffer on May 5, our congregants who will share their thoughts on Mother’s Day, May 12, and the happy monthly return of The Rev, Dr. Julia Kyle on May 26. Wishing you many May blessings!

With my love, Pastor Pam
On April 28, 2019, we held our Annual Membership Meeting. It is a joyful honor to serve as your Pastor. This church belongs to YOU, and it all functions through each individual who serves to make it all work so harmoniously. Infinite gratitude to each and every one of you, because each of you makes a difference, not only from the time we enter this church, but throughout the days and weeks, many working behind the scenes. We are truly blessed with our speakers, presenters, mediums, healers, greeters and student workers and congregants who generously serve and share their individual skills and gifts: their time, food, energy, supplies, flowers and amazing creativity.

We are especially blessed with active Committee members and our stellar collaborative, dedicated and harmonious church Board. Each board member works very hard and serves humbly and tirelessly to ensure that the business and secular aspects and functioning of this church and parsonage run smoothly. Heartfelt thanks and congratulations to our newly elected board members! And gratitude to Infinite Spirit and all those in Spirit who guide, love and watch over us.
