Harmony Fellowship is a Christ based, new thought, metaphysical church. That is, we believe in more than is apparent in the physical world. We believe in the energy of love that is taught by Jesus the Christ. We believe the teachings of the Christ and other master teachers are given to assist in making our lives more practical and fulfilling if we can but recognize the clues that have been provided not only for the ancients but for modern man. We seek to know and live our understanding of the universal truths.

The metaphysical meaning of Christmas is love. It is that simple and that infinite. I tell you this in the beginning so that you will keep this thought while we try to understand more deeply this mystery called Christmas.
Examine this. What destiny brought you here to understand a little more completely this personal gift of Christmas? This was intended by the soul we know as Jesus the Christ to be a personal revelation to each of you. Christ came into this world as the incarnation of Christmas time to make the human consciousness – to use a modern word – RADIOACTIVE. The power to send out the energy of the soul for a positive purpose is radioactive. The sum total of this energy is love – the message to us is to be the personification of love. To exude it, to use it, and to manifest God in the earth.
Christmas is not just an event on the calendar. It is something that takes the individual and determines the nature and course of his life. It is the quality of the soul and the power of the soul. This response is brought to us in many ways by the symbols of this time of the year and by the Christmas story. Whether or not we recognize this as so, it is so. Universal symbols go beyond the intellect and act on every man through the power of the super conscious. So it is at Christmas that we celebrate the first moment of the consciousness of the soul. This “radioactive” thing must be done in the soul.
It is the essence of illumination when a person can find himself aware to some degree outside of his ordinary experience. Then it is said that he has been illumined. This is where your destiny has brought you. Every Christmas you are prompted by the Holy Birth, the beautiful lights, the symbol of gifts, the tree of life, the abundance of delights to follow this destiny to become illumined.
Since this experience was meant to be a personal experience, think of this as a dream, a dream full of symbols that you remember forever and ever. Begin to interpret the dream as your symbolic guide to your own illumination.
–Rev Pat Moore

The Children’s Gathering will be held during the Sunday service on these Potluck Sundays. Targeted for ages 4 through 8 years old, the material is a New Thought program. called the Young Masters Little Wisdom curriculum from Dream A World Education, dreamaworldedu.org. Each lesson in the curriculum includes a story, songs, a short discussion or round robin activity, and an arts and crafts activity.
All children will start in the Sunday service with their families. At the greeting time, children ages 4 through 8 will be invited to join the Children’s Gathering in the HF library during the remainder of the service. Children will rejoin their families at the end of the offering, just before the blessing. If desired, older family members may accompany a child to the Gathering until the child is comfortable. The Harmony Children’s Gathering will be led by board members Carter Tiernan and Robin Phillips initially and additional teachers will be added to the rotation as they become available.
