We are asking for love donations at this time during our online church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are not meeting in person so can't pass around the offering plate to help us with ongoing operating expenses that need to be paid: partial rent, full insurance, Zoom fees, payment to the national organization, to name a few.

Earth Hour 2022 @ 8:30 PM local time
Every year, we countdown together across the globe to celebrate Earth Hour and take one iconic action: switch off the lights. But it is so much more than that. It is a symbol of unity. It is a symbol of hope. It is a demonstration of the power of collective action for our future and the planet's.

Founders' Day Celebration & Gratitude Day
Gratitude Day is the fourth Sunday of March each year, proclaimed by the NSAC. Special remembrance is made to honor the founding of Modern Spiritualism and retired mediums who have devoted their lives to the cause.
Fox Sisters Gravesite Visit
On this day, Summerland members will gather to visit the Fox sisters gravesite at Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
March 31 is the Anniversary of Modern Spiritualism, when sisters Catherine and Margueretta, along with their mother, communicated with a spirit known as Charles Rosna (his last name is more likely Cresmer) on March 31, 1848, ushering in Modern Spiritualism and the advancement of mediumship.
Backup visit date is April 3.

Spiritual Healing Requests
Spirit healings result from law-governed forces being put into operation following the sending forth of a thought directive (prayer). Spirit guides and doctors will diagnose the trouble and its cause, attention being directed to overcoming the cause, and then removing the symptoms.
Please set time aside each day to send healing thoughts for each of those listed below, that they may receive from Spirit that which is for their highest and best needs.
Your healing prayers are needed and benefit others in ways we may never know.
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force
To remove all obstructions
From my mind and body
And to restore me to perfect health.
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty
And I will do my part.
I ask this Great Unseen Healing Force
To help both present and absent ones
Who are in need of help
And to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust and love in the power of God.

Prayer for Ukraine ... by Marianne Williamson
Please send miracles
to the people of Ukraine.
Send angels to minister unto them.
Bring calm and peace to their frightened hearts.
Awaken in Vladimir Putin
the truth of who we are.
Soften his heart and remind him of his soul.
Please God, may there be peace.
