There was an engraving above the library of the former monastery of Saint Gall that read, “Enter Here the Pharmacy of the Soul.” I love the message of this engraving, that when we enter into communion with God, we are indeed nurturing our spirits to health. We are always in a state of prayer, for each and every thought and word we have is a form of our belief. Our daily conversation about ourselves, about others, about the state of our lives, is in itself a prayer. By the nature of our thought we are forever praying without ceasing.
The Cotton Patch Gospels features the song “There Ain’t No Busy Signals on the Hot Line to God.” How can there be? The connection, at least on God’s part, is never broken.
God is everywhere. This is comforting to me. This gives me hope. This opens my finite, earthly mind to accept the promises of God and awaken the Spiritual God mind that is within me. The pharmacy of the soul has the perfect prescription for our spirits.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5)
Affirmation: “The pharmacy of the soul has the perfect prescription for my spirit.”

We live our lives one thought at a time. Let each of those thoughts really count for something wonderful.
Be prepared to change your thinking and change your life. Please join us each Sunday at 5:30 PM in our Social Hall at First Christian Church, North Hollywood, CA for our Contemporary Celebration and Praise service. Come as you are and enjoy an hour of great music from our wonderful band and singers, inspiring messages and good fellowship. Those things in life that you have been seeking have also been seeking you. Now is a good time to receive them. We will lift one another to live exciting, abundant new lives of possibility and purpose.
Also, join me on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 PM for an hour of guided and silent meditation, reflection, affirmation and prayer. As always, we will share communion together. Everyone is welcome.
