A Message from our President…
Hello and welcome to a new month. October is one of my favorite months, with a touch of cooler weather. The Board has remained busy managing our properties, strategizing on how we can safely reopen, and maximizing the Center’s financial status. Our leadership will soon be meeting with the Center’s financial advisors to determine how we can improve our revenue flow. And, we are almost done upgrading our website offering some important improvements to serve you better.
Last month’s newsletter spotlighted the rental properties that we have available on our beautiful campus. That property information was also posted in last month’s Natural Awakenings magazine. I’m pleased to announce that we now have rentals for the Learning Center, Flexer Hall, and Davis Hall! The extra marketing has paid off and enhanced our property revenue. We still have availability for those rentals, so please reach out if you would like to host a class, family reunion, wedding, or other special event.
In Education Committee news, our long-time friend David Winfree will be teaching a 2-hour ZOOM class on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST (noon – 2 p.m. MDT), for $20. David’s course title is Spiritual Growth. Registration is available at https://www.sarasotacenteroflight.com/event/spiritual-growth-by-david-winfree/ This will delve deeply into what it means to be spiritual, living life with a sense of spiritual purpose, and achieving ongoing spiritual growth.
Rev. Elaine Kuzmeskus, who served our Center last month, will be teaching a ZOOM class on Saturday, October 16, entitled “Dreams and Astral Travel” from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST (11 a.m. to 2 p.m. MDT). Registration for $50 is available at https://www.sarasotacenteroflight.com/event/dreams-and-astral-travel-zoom-workshop/ This will focus on dream interpretation and astral projection with the finale of an opportunity for each person to access their own akashic record.
The Center’s Ministry Team is conducting the services on ZOOM in October offering heartfelt spiritual food. Our special guests in October include Rev. Steve Hermann (Oct. 10), Rev. Rosie Bouch (Oct. 17), and Rev. Bill Patridge (Oct. 24). Also, we again note the new start time for our Wednesday Spiritual and Vibrational Healing Service: 7:30 p.m. EST (5:30 p.m. MDT).
As mentioned in past newsletters, we have Secretary and Trustee vacancies on the Board, with each term extending through the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in February 2022. If you wish to help our Center’s operations by filling one of those two vacancies, please reach out to me or the church office.
A New Opportunity to Support our Center!

Our Spiritual Family is Growing!
I enjoyed facilitating the Basic concepts class on Saturday, Oct. 2. Rev. Lisa, Rev. Mary, and Gary Mantz did a great job offering an overview of our Center’s history and our tenets of metaphysical spirituality. And, we have three new members who attended: 1) Rev. Dr. AdaRa L. Walton, member-at-large, 2) Amanda Mobley, new member, and 3) Jeanne Bakale, new member-at-large. Rev. AdaRa, Amanda, and Jeanne, welcome to the Sarasota Center of Light’s spiritual family!

A Message from our Minister of Healing
The Law of Light and Self-Development
During these times of covid-19, so many of us have had our normal free to go anywhere lives turned upside down. As the saying goes “always look behind the black cloud to find the silver lining.”
My silver cloud came to me in a dream about a mystery school situated in the far east, high up in the hills. I thought I would share this with you all.
The person who lives according to the law of light is always free. Her very work is called freedom of the soul. No longer is she held hostage to the rules of others, she has understood the fact that our world goes far beyond the confines of our small planet.
We came here to learn about self responsibility, it’s no longer always someone else’s fault or our parents, siblings, uncles aunts, anyone but our own choices.
In the silence that we all have available to us now, track backwards on the path and take the blinders off. We could have made another choice. We can listen to that small voice from within.
Now, the silver lining is that we do have the time. Please start a spiritual practice, become newly awakened. Please take small steps, and follow Jesus’ words of kindness, compassion and daily prayer.
I promise you it will change your life and your health. As the understanding begins to flow, you live in the light.
Get to know the you, the soul within this physical body, surround yourself with light and love. No one can do this for you, only you in the peaceful quiet times.
Our Healers are here to serve and be available whenever we are called upon. As you know, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, our Services are held on ZOOM.
However, if you need our Healers to contact you for a healing or emergency, please call the Church Office at (941) 356-6620 and Tina will connect you with a Healer.
Please join us every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. EST (5:30 p.m. MDT) for our new and updated Healing, Meditation, and Connection Services which are more interactive and 1-on-1.
Please be well and care for yourself.
A Message from the Hands of Light
The Hands of Light Team is looking forward to working closely with the Board and congregation to make sure that your needs continue to be met. For more information, please email Sherry Brune, email@example.com or call me 478-461-7581. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you!

The Angels look for individuals who are willing to be channels of God Spirit, so the Truth and right living can be related to individuals of Earth. That is the way their Truth can manifest completely for the whole human race. As Metaphysicians, we have expressed that willingness to be channels of the God Spirit. Thus, if we bury our Truth within the subconscious mind or within our individual life, it will be smothered and will help no one.
Share your knowledge with others. Since you have found something that is workable in your life and beneficial, share it with others in the hope that they too will see its benefit, make use of it, and share their knowledge with others. In this way, the Truth will grow and be magnified.
Hopefully, one day, there will be less hatred and confusion in the world. Truth, love, and understanding will spread around the world to people of every race, color, and creed so that everyone will recognize his and her right to exist, to obtain happiness, and to find peace and enjoyment. Those in authority must hear the Truth, too, and come to know and use it. They must learn to give way to right thinking, to the power of love, and to the desire to help all achieve health, happiness, peace, and prosperity without fear of being destroyed by war.
You as one individual of on Earth may be responsible for one day helping save others from destruction. So, drop a little pebble in the water and see how many ripples come from that small stone. That is the way your truth, love, and activity will travel all around the globe.
~ You are loved. ~
