A Saint For Today

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 17, 2019 • 25 Comments

One of the biggest changes I’ve seen in recent years has been the number of people I hear from now who are feeling a call to serve Spirit. Often they don’t understand this urge, this inchoate itch they feel compelled to scratch, nor even are most of them certain that it really is an itch... Read More

We Cannot Live in Fear

I was born at the end of the Second World War. When I was a child, the cold war was hot! I don’t think anyone younger than retirement age can comprehend what it was like to be an American child in the early fifties. We expected to be bombed at any moment, to the point... Read More

Do Not Judge

The Gospel teachings of Jesus include the most radical directives ever given. His ideas seem so revolutionary to most of us that, as the lay theologian G.K. Chesterton so memorably said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting—it has been found difficult and left untried.” The teachings of Jesus are divine commands,... Read More

What the Spirit Says to the Churches

There are more than forty thousand versions of Christianity worldwide.  Many are the size of a single building, but a few are gigantic: the Catholic Church has 1.2 billion members, and the United Methodist Church alone has more than twelve million members worldwide. Most of the differences among denominations are minor, but they are enough... Read More

He Lives!

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 20, 2019 • 23 Comments

We know for certain now that Jesus is real! He came from the highest aspect of the Godhead, and He entered a body two millennia ago with a set of goals that included teaching us how to lift ourselves spiritually so together we can transform the world. All the forty thousand religious variants that profess... Read More

Now He Rises

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 13, 2019 • 20 Comments

The most amazing discovery of my life is the fact that Jesus is a genuine Being Who came to us as God on earth. Having faith without evidence to back it up is useless! Who cares what you or I might believe? But we can prove now based on the testimony of people that we... Read More

Living in the Kingdom of God on Earth

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 06, 2019 • 35 Comments

It is so hard to convey to you what living in the kingdom of God on earth will be like that we have spent a  few preparatory months in  sharing background information. There has been so much that you needed to know in order for what we say here to make sense that if you... Read More

Bringing the Kingdom of God on Earth

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 30, 2019 • 21 Comments

All the stresses and angers that now separate people, best exemplified in our rage-filled politics but extending into every cranny of our lives, are signs of human history gone dangerously wrong. It is hard for people whose lifespan on earth will extend for only eight or nine decades, and people who furthermore believe that modernity... Read More

Forgiveness and Love

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 23, 2019 • 20 Comments

Amazingly, this is the first decade in all of human history when we know for certain why the universe exists and why you and I are in these bodies. No mogul or king, no prophet through even the end of the twentieth century could have known what you and I know now. Had some of... Read More

Timeless

Scientists never make anything like the public fuss that they ought to be making about the fact that they cannot understand time at all. Apparently there is no scientific reason why time should run in one direction, why it should be constant and measurable, or even why it should exist; so pretty much the best... Read More
