Greetings and an Update
Greetings and blessings to all of you. We continue to send energy, encouragement and support for your safety, well-being and inspiration to continue to move through these changes we are all in together. You will have noticed changes in our board announced in an email recently. We are grateful for those who have served and those who have stepped in to be of service.
In September you will see that new teachers are participating in our Facebook live presentations of classes. You will also notice various individuals participating in the services in different ways. We have successfully installed internet in our buildings and are testing programs to create more online fellowship, through classes, fellowship circles and our celebration/services. We will announce these as they are scheduled on our website, through emails and on Facebook.
We are in the process of looking very closely at how we present our celebration/services, our classes, describe ourselves as a center, and how we can express ourselves in a way that serves each and all of you. Please feel free to share any ideas or suggestions you might have. Let us know how we can best create an expression that serves you, your needs, and all who are drawn to be a part of who we are.
As we continue through this time of the pandemic, we as a board continue to monitor, review, discuss and evaluate all information available to us in order to determine our ongoing evolution as a center. Currently we are not holding public gatherings as a center. The board will be meeting on Tuesday, 9/8, to continue our ongoing discussion and decision making process. We will be sure to keep you informed of any changes or plans that are created.
Please remember that we are here to support you. Let us know how we can. We look forward to your input, support and any contributions you’re able to offer to us in this ever-changing time we are in together.
Be well. Be safe. Blessings.
Rev Jim and the Sarasota Center of Light Board of Directors
We Are the World by Rev. Jim
The cycles of life continue. It is different for each of us individually, unique in our own lives, and yet, universal as a collective as humanity on this planet. Every moment we have an opportunity to be a part of the ever changing landscape of living.
Our personal cycles begin at the core of us. Our souls urge to express their inspiration and illumination and to fulfill their purpose and is the origin of the spiritual experience of each of us. This creates a flow of presence that is the opening through which we are an expression of the infinite.
As this reflection of our soul begins to show up as our life, it begins to have an influence on more than just ourselves. This is where two or more are joined starts to make a difference for each and all of us. At this point personal responsibility (our ability to respond to life), becomes important.
Although it may seem when we are making decisions how to personally approach and live our lives it is all about us and those close to us, it is the beginning of the world as we know it. Everything we are and do contributes to the whole.
In every cycle of life there is contraction then a turning point towards expansion in order to return to balance and harmony. We are at that key turning point in the evolution of humanity and the world, our country, our communities, and our lives.
Conscious Living (living guided by our inner knowing and truth) is vital to how each and all of us are going to experience life as we know it. NOW is the time for each of us to trust the deepest and most pure inspiration of our soul, let the unconditional love of our divine hearts guide our decisions and actions, and open the floodgates of our expression of All That Is.
We have been physically dispersed and this has affected the way we see our connection as community. I invite you to take the time to revisit the importance of spiritual intimacy, the closeness our hearts and souls share when we remember our eternal oneness. To begin to reach out energetically and literally to one another as spiritual family.
Let us all create an intention of bridging the distance that may have been created by the circumstances we have been facing and begin the reunion of community with our safety and well-being in mind. Let’s close the distance by beginning to interact more often online, on our phones, and in other ways, sharing virtual fellowship, until we are able to be together in person again.
We are the world. Let’s make the best of who we are and what we have to make the world, yours, mine and for everybody, a better place to live. Find your Truth, embrace your Love, reflect your Light, live as your Spirit and BE the Inspiration that is the difference that makes the difference for each, all, and the world.
Be well. Be safe. Be conscious. Blessings to all of you.
We thank all of our healers for being channels of healing energy and the Divine Power, and being of service at the center offering distance healing during this time. We all continue to hold the energy of the Divine for each and all that are in need.
A meeting for our healers occurred on zoom after the morning celebration in August. It was great to have those who attended to be able to connect and share.

It is very difficult for the angels to understand why people worry when they have so many people around them on earth and in spirit to give them that extra bit of energy, enlightenment and help. When you lose faith, when you are afraid or when you worry, it’s as though you don’t believe in your angels. They are closer to you than you could ever imagine. They are watching over you to help you avoid difficulties you don’t even know about. You should be grateful.
Live and think and trust in the Divine Power working through the Angels of Light, your loved ones and members of your angel band. They will always lead people to you; people on earth you need to know. The angels lead them into your particular vibration when you are in need. Thing do happen that are planned by Spirit that you surely do need to appreciate and be grateful for.
Live as best you can without the fear, the doubt and the worry. Try it and you will be surprised. It will seem like a weight has been lifted from your heart, you mind, your shoulders and your life will be much easier to live with that faith.
