Message Theme in November: Stepping Forth: Our Gifts in Service

What are Our Gifts? - Rev. Alia Aurami, Head Minister


What is meant by "gifts?" What kinds of gifts are there? Are some unique and others in common? Where do they come from? How do we get them? Do we always know what they are? Are they always only the great and wonderful things about us?



For others' sake, please no scents, and turn off cell phones.


Order of Service



Invocation, Call to Sacred Awareness, "Om"..........................Rev. Alia and All

We now invoke Blessèd Self-aware Representatives of the Infinite Radiant Creative Conscious Energy's feminine qualities, and Blessèd Self-Aware Representatives of the Infinite Radiant Creative Conscious Energy's masculine qualities, all who are in the balance, harmony, and synergy of those qualities.
We invite you to pour forth your blessings upon us and upon all Beings, upon this place and upon the whole world and all of Creation.
We recognize and rejoice in our Oneness with you and the Infinite Consciousness. We appreciate the beauty and awesome magnificence of us, you, and All That Is.
We ask for your help in successfully completing our project of uplifting and transmuting ourselves and this planet to our highest possible state of Unity-consciousness and Unlimited Beingness, restoring our awareness of who we truly already are, and harvesting the wisdom of all our experiences of separate and limited consciousness.

"Om": A Sanskrit word which vibrates with the experience of:
I am now recognizing, acknowledging, and allowing myself to experience that I am one embodiment of All That Is, and of Divine Grace, the Force and Power which Creates All That Is from the Field of Infinite Possibilities. As such, I am One with All, and One with the Force and Power of Grace.

Vision Statement for this Church and this Service...........................Rev. Alia
Our purpose is to amplify the Divine Light in All, including Gaia herself.
The purpose of this service is to uplift, inspire, invigorate, refresh, renew and to strengthen each person's knowing of their Oneness with God/ess and their living in that knowingness.

Welcome and Announcements..........................................Rev. Alia

WeSingAlong*...................................................Everyone

On A Clear Day You Can See Forever...............


Meditation, In Silence, Your Own Communion with Your Own Ultimate ...............Everyone

An Amplifying Transmission of Divine Light/Love through Energy and Sound......................................................................Rev. Alia

Special Music*..............................................................."O'cean"

Sharing of Uplifting Stuff.................................................... Anyone

Message What are Our Gifts?.......................................Rev. Alia

Tithes and Love Offerings..................................................Everyone
We acknowledge that God-We-Are is the source of all money, and money is God-We-Are in action.
We recognize the spiritual purpose of money: a substance used to facilitate an unlimited variety of exchanges and gifts of goods and services for embodied Beings who require certain things for survival and flourishing.
We ask for and accept all support, supply, and nourishment in all forms including money.

Blessing of Tithes and Love Offerings..........................Rev. Alia and Everyone
This money is received and accepted in the name of the Church. It is dedicated to the Missions and Purposes of the Church, blessing our lives and the world. It is from our ministry and for our ministry. It is received with rejoicing and appreciation. May the givers be blessed many times over in every good way.
We now imbue each bill and coin with Sacred-Heart Christ-Consciousness Love-Light Energy. We raise its vibration entirely to that energy. May it glow with that energy as it goes forth through the world, blessing and uplifting everyone who touches it. And through that energy may it attract back to us, and may we receive, ten-fold itself. We more than give and receive money, we flow money in and out of our hands and lives. So be it.

Benediction and Inspiration...........................Rev. Alia, Everyone, and Anyone
I now choose to accept, integrate, and become every opportunity for amplifying my own Divine Light Self and Divine Love Self provided by this service, with rejoicing and celebration. I go forth into a more joyful life as more of the Divine, fully alive Self I already am, to be a blessing and upliftment to this beloved Planet and every Being in Her. Through Divine Grace, it is done.

Sunday Messages in November will be on the theme of Stepping Forth




We greet you and say Goodbye to you in the ancient Sanskrit language word
Namasté(NAH mah stay) which vibrates with the following experience:
Short version: I as God recognize and acknowledge you as God.
Long version: I am now aware that I am one embodiment of One Beingness, which is All That Is, and which is also the Force and Power that created All That Is from the Field of Infinite Possibilities, and in that awareness, I recognize that You are also an embodiment of that One, that All, and that Force and Power as well. I am now affirming that this is our most profound and basic relationship, and I am now rejoicing in that relationship.
