“The wise one, when seeking entrance through the locked door, wold not destroy the door but rather would seek for the key wherewith to unlock it”
Jesus, The Urantia Book,
Speaking for Montclair Meeting, our Ministry and Counsel committee enthusiastically supports our Clerk Barbra Bleecker attending the 3 day session on Deepening Spiritually.
Barbra has a deep spirituality, is centered and is touch with her Inner Light. She is skillful at encouraging others to be in touch with their Light and to feel God’s presence. Barbra guides our Meeting to harmony by her intuitive nature and deep trust in God’s leading. Her messages seem to come from a place of deep listening for God’s voice, discerning God‘s will, sharing God‘s love warmly, encouraging the ministry of others, helping people who are struggling, spending much time in prayer, building and comforting others wherever she goes. Her experiences as a Chaplin and an Elder inform her spiritual work. As our Meeting’s Newsletter editor she has introduced features that invite members to explore their spiritual experiences.
Barbra is indeed gifted in gently attending to the spiritual needs of others, valuing spiritual hospitality for and with everyone. We believe Barbra is likely to return from the weekend with refined skills that will enable her to widen her circles of love.
Mary Pugh Clark, Clerk Ministry and Counsel
In order to be at one with any form of good, it becomes necessary first of all to become one (consciously one) with the Source of all being. Without taking thought of what we shall eat, what we shall drink and wherewithal we
shall be clothed, by seeking the Kingdom of God, conscious oneness with our Source, we are at one with the Infinite Wisdom that already knows our need and the Divine Love whose pleasure it is to give us the Kingdom.
Therefore, we no longer live by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit. If you undertake a spiritual study, you have only your own state of consciousness, your own state of intelligence with which to succeed. But, if you first tune into the Infinite Invisible, the Source of all Being, God, you then have the Mind of God, the Wisdom of God, the Love of God, the Life of God,
so that you can say with Paul, “I live, yet not I, Christ liveth my Life”.
