Storms of Life by Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM

Sometimes on life’s journey, times are horribly difficult; everything looks bleak.  Sometimes, we wonder if or how we will survive.  Sometimes we wonder if we do survive, what is the difference and why?  Sometimes, life seems ominous.  Sometimes Infinite Intelligence seems far away and inspiration seems nearly nonexistent.  Sometimes life runs through an area very desert like; and yet, even in a desert, there is movement, there i...

Learning to Work with Spirit by Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST.CM
November 1st, 2017 12:12 pm

Autumn is certainly in the air this week.  It is the time of completing harvests and starting into the cooler nights, frosty mornings and gradually working into the holiday season.  The evenings are longer, it gets dark earlier and we have time in the evenings to settle in and be cozy and comfortable in our homes.  With yard work finished or nearly so, there is more time for reflection.  I personally find television less appealing than ever.  Do you relax with a book?  Do you think about j...

Gathered Together   

by Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM                         

Many of you have heard me say that one of the best things about our religion to me, personally, is that we are taught to think for ourselves.  No pope, no priest, no pastor, no minister, no evangelist has any closer link to the Spirit, the Infinite Intelligence, the God Force, than we, each and every one of us, does.  That is true, IF we take the time to be connected to Spirit.  This requires medita...

We Are Spiritualits! by Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM
November 1st, 2017 11:38 am

We are Spiritualists.  We are not Baptists, Catholics, Methodists or Presbyterians.  We are Spiritualists!   Exactly what does that mean?  It means we believe life continues after death and we can communicate with those souls of entities in spirit.  We state this every Sunday in the 5th of our Declaration of Principles when we affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.

Palm Sunday to a Spiritualist by Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST,CM
October 30th, 2017 2:06 pm

 

As a Spiritualist Pastor Palm Sunday is a difficult Sunday to prepare for since we are not Christians and many of our folks have come to us from other beliefs where this season has quite different connotations. We do not accept the concept of Jesus as our savior nor do we believe He died to save us from our sins. We also do not take the teachings of the Bible or any other holy writings literally – we teach and believe in using our own minds to accept or reject what we can understand an...

How Do Souls Spend Their Time? By Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM
October 30th, 2017 1:51 pm

I ran across a little verse I would like to share it with you this morning.  The Author is unknown and the verse was not titled. 

I dreamed death came the other night

And Heaven's gate swung wide.
A glorious angel soon appeared

And ushered me inside.
And there to my astonishment

Were folks I'd known on earth.
Some I'd judged and found unfit

And some of little worth.
Indignant words rose to my lips

But never were set free.
For every face showed stunned sur...

Church Message Work

By Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST

An integral portion of our Spiritualist service is the portion after the

lecture or sermon (the official determination being was the Bible or

another Holy Book quoted or not? If so, it is a sermon. If not, it is a

lecture!). This is called the message portion of the service where the

medium demonstrates the 5th of our Declaration of Principles – the one

stating “We affirm that communication with the so...

Memorial Day
By Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST
 
 
In our church every Sunday morning we ask the congregation to rise for the invocation which is our request to Infinite Intelligence (the God Force)  to enter our building and our hearts and open us to receive the love, healing and education about Spirit at work in our lives. Immediately after that while still standing, we place our right hands over our hearts and recite in unison the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United State...

Knowing is Within By Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM
October 30th, 2017 1:18 pm

                                               

In my bedroom I have a small framed motto. I don’t know who said it or had it printed, I have no idea where it ever came from or who coined it and couldn’t find anything specific on this on the internet!  It is only three lines and it simply says:

 

You do not have to struggle.

You do not have to fight.

You only have to KNOW.

 

Somehow I have always considered that rather profound!  If you KNOW you are right, wh...

The Differences Between Spiritualism and Christianity, By Rev. Frances D. Montgomery, NST, CM
August 15th, 2017 2:23 pm

Some of you know the answer to this question without even thinking about it. Others may not be so certain. What does it mean to consider yourself a Spiritualist rather than a Christian?
Both are religions. In many ways both follow the same lines in their teachings. Both accept the Bible and both believe Jesus was a human being who lived and taught. Christians see Jesus as their Savior. If they confess their sins and believe upon him, they are saved and will enter heaven.  Spiritualists see Je...
