Celebrating an Un-Labor Day – A Sabbath of the Soul
This Sunday, September 6th at 10:00 am EDT
This weekend we celebrate Labor Day, a day set aside in the United States to honor the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. Monday is a day off from that labor, a day to rest and rejuvenate. What if we rested from labor all the time and yet still contributed to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our own lives and the lives of others? Be with us on YouTube Live http://bit.ly/SLC-LiveStream Sunday, Sept. 6th at 10 am EDT and find out how.

Points to Remember – Sunday September 6, 2020
“Celebrating an Un-Labor Day”
We can continuously create a life that works without all the work – or all the hard labor when we …
* … live from certain spiritual principles,
* … apply certain spiritual practices and
* … then leave the rest to the Divine, or in other words, REST in the Divine rather than laboring it all out in our minds.
How can we rest from labor all the time and yet still contribute to the strength, prosperity and well- being of our own lives and the lives of others?” The answer lies in this passage from Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
An expanded version of that verse might be: “Come to me with your cares, your burdens, your worries, your fears, your ‘I have to do this all on my owns’ and I will handle it for you so you can rest.”
It is the ultimate invitation is to trust Source, to trust God, to trust the Universe, to trust the Law. And the spiritual principles are Affirmations and Release. The spiritual practice is a familiar one. It is “Let Go and Let God.”
Ralph Waldo Trine, “In Tune With the Infinite,” p. 94: “If one is willing to trust himself fully to the Law, the Law will never fail him. It is the half-hearted trusting . . . that brings uncertain, and so, unsatisfactory results. Nothing is firmer and surer than Deity. It will never fail the one who throws himself wholly on it. The secret of life then, is to live continually in this realization, whatever one may be doing, wherever one may be, by day and by night, both waking and sleeping.”
Ernest Holmes in “The Power of An Idea,” wrote, p. 59: “[And] . . . we must remember that very frequently it takes what we call time for events to transpire, and therefore we should realize that the growth of thought into experience may take time to mature. When we trust in God, we will not make haste; we will not be confused; we will contemplate the object of our desire and believe that we have it whether we see it or not. We will know that always, by the silent processes of the Law, the harvest is . . . taking form.”
Charles Fillmore in “Christian Healing,” p. 58: “If Jesus and His disciples and the early Christians did marvelous things through the prayer of faith, we can do likewise. All this is required is perseverance in our use of faith until we make connection with the higher realms of consciousness, where, as Jesus said, though our faith be as small as the smallest of seeds, it will spring forth and demonstrate its power to carry out every desire into which we infuse it. ‘Nothing shall be impossible unto you,’ if your faith is in Spirit, and if your work is in harmony with divine Mind.”
