Welcome to The Church Within website and to the very idea of The Church Within itself. The Church Within was founded in 1992. We are an ever-evolving spiritual community, dedicated to offering unconditional support and love to all who seek inner wisdom through a spiritual life.
The best way to get to know us is to share in the joy, spirit, and celebration of our 10:00 AM Sunday gathering. The best "brochure" we have is us.
We are folks whose pasts include other churches or no church at all. Some come simply to expand their current faith experience. As one of our members puts it, "I come to The Church Within, because it helps me discover my faith and live it out in the world."
We are a diverse, informal gathering who believes in the power of prayer, in God (whatever name you use for Source), and in each other.
Just 3 more Course in Miracles classes in 2014: the 4th, 11th, and 18th of December. (Christmas and New Year’s both fall on Thursday this year.) Thursday ACIM classes will resume on January 8, 2015.
“AS GOD CREATED ME” will be the topic for ACIM on Thursday, December 4, 7 p.m. at The Church Within. “I am as God created me” is the most repeated lesson in the Course — check out Lessons 94, 110, and 162 — so it’s an important idea.
LESSON 162.I am as God created me.
W-pI.162.1. This single thought, held firmly in the mind, would save the world. .These words are sacred, for they are the words God gave in answer to the world you made. 5 By them it disappears, and all things seen within its misty clouds and vaporous illusions vanish as these words are spoken. 6 For they come from God.
Please check out your calendar for Thursday December 18. If there is enough interest, we’ll have a potluck prior to class.
“THE EGO’S SILLY SIN-PHONY” will be the topic for A Course in Miracles class at The Church Within, 7 p.m. on Thursday November 6.
Whether we think we believe in the “original sin” of the Bible or not, the ego’s entire world is based on sin – the thought that we have fragmented and separated from our loving Source. Exploring and exposing the ego’s “sin-phony” is the way to undo it.
Here are some of the Course’s statements about sin:
Sin is but error in a special form the ego venerates. It would preserve all errors and make them sins.
Sins are beliefs that you impose between your brother and yourself. They limit you to time and place, and give a little space to you, another little space to him.
Sin is the idea you are alone and separated off from what is whole. And thus it would be necessary for the search for wholeness to be made beyond the boundaries of limits on yourself.
Sin is insanity. It is the means by which the mind is driven mad, and seeks to let illusions take the place of truth.
The title has yet to be decided, but I’ve been thinking about freedom, looking for love in all the wrong places, ejection seats, and Course koans.
A Course in Miracles class will meet Thursday October 30, 7 p.m. at The Church Within. Dinner before class will be 5:30 at Milano Inn on College Ave
