August Focus Newsletter 2021

August Focus Newsletter 2021

Hello and welcome, from your Board President.  We offer thanks to the large number of individuals who offered their love and support during and after our Sunday, August 1 service on ZOOM featuring world-renowned medium Jackie Wright and Andy Jennings, with his spirit guide Grey Eagle. We look forward to hosting all three of them again in the near future. 

Sound Healer Robert Austin presented his Crystal Tibetan Bowl Concert on Friday, July 30.  What a wonderful experience! 

In August, we have two more classes taught by our Associate Minister, Mary Torrey.  Mary is a member of our Ministerial Team, a certified Medium, and a certified Spiritual Healer. Mary’s class, Numerology: The Mystical Relationship between Numbers & Your Life Class is coming up on Monday, August 9 and Monday, Aug. 16, from 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time.  Numerology is the study of the spiritual qualities of numbers and letters.  There is a story in every number, and it tells a story about YOU.  This class includes the tools you will need to examine your life through EASY numbers to calculate.  The fee for this 2-week, 4-hour class is $50.  You can register for this course on the calendar page of the Center’s website

Also, be watching your email inbox for an important announcement about Mary Torrey’s 3-class series in the fall — Psychic and Mediumship Development.  Mary has taught these Psychic and Mediumship Development classes in the Denver area for the past 10 years.   The first class in this 3-class series starts on Tuesday, September 7th.

As you undoubtedly know, this has been a time of many changes at our Center.  Noting recent surges in COVID-19 infections due to the delta variant, we apologize for having to keep our doors closed to in-person services.  This of course has resulted in reduced donations. For credit card donations, please call the office 941-953-6620 between 9:00 am-12:00 pm, Mon. – Fri., or on the our Donate page or you can mail a check to the office, 2710 Browning Street, Sarasota, FL 34327.

Our ZOOM services, however, have been increasingly successful and we now welcome a congregation not only locally but also internationally.  The Center’s Ministerial Team and our guest speakers and mediums will conduct the services in August offering heartfelt spiritual guidance. 

For the sake of transparency, we note that our Board has experienced some unexpected challenges.  Regrettably, Jeff Lambert, our long-time Board Treasurer, resigned from the Board with a 3-day notice.  Cindy Gourley moved from her 2-year Trustee appointment to fill the Treasurer vacancy and we express our gratitude to her as she steps up to accept a crucial new set of responsibilities. 

Also, Sherry Brune has been experiencing some recent health challenges and therefore, on her doctor’s advice, resigned from her Board Secretary position.  We wish Sherry healing and the best of luck on her recovery.  

Enjoy the month!
Bob Sadler, Board President (phone 727 4922977)

A Message from our Minister of Healing…


What do we do when crisis involuntarily comes crashing into our life bringing with it repercussions that go beyond anything one thought would occur in our lifetime.  Our Church, now in its mid-seventies is no stranger to challenges.

This ‘PERFECT STORM’ called Covid-19 and its new variants, not only affected our country but also our beloved Church.  No longer were we able to meet together in person for our services, we also had to cancel healing sessions, Psychic Saturday, counseling and mediumship readings.  Many other churches will never reopen due to lost revenue and unpaid leases.

So, we did what Metaphysicians do in a time of transitional happenings.  We put our best foot forward and dove into the new era of ZOOM Church Services! 

As time went by we made new friends who are spread across our country and even abroad.  Amazing teachers have approached us to ask to teach exciting classes and we are working hard for a great line up right thru 2021 and beyond.

When life is falling apart and the future is unknowable, that time is when we place our FAITH and trust in God and his Angels to guide us to be strong and courageous in action.

Please go to our Calendar or our Facebook page to check in on our ZOOM service log-in details and to catch up on the latest information.
