A tongue-in-cheek introduction to New Thought Philadelphia, showing that we have a sense of humor, and are willing to use powerful tools in a whimsical way.

Spiritual, not Religious

We're a non-denominational spiritual community anchored in the ancient wisdom of all of the great traditions. We each create our life according to our beliefs using the proven techniques of Practical Spirituality. It’s not a secret! These universal keys to healing, harmony and the life we desire are summarized and explained in clear, everyday language free of dogma or limitation.

Sunday Celebration

August 28: "It's OK With God"

DawnHiatt2aThe important thing about unconditional Love is that it's unconditional. The Love of God is just that, which tells us that there is nothing we can do to change that Love, and hence that whatever we do, we are immediately forgiven by God. Rev. Bill Marchiony explores how forgiveness from our friends, our colleagues and ourselves, of course, is a different matter.

Live, original music by Music Director Dawn Hiatt.

Rev. Dave Schpok anchors the celebration in meditation and Practical Prayer.

We gather every Sunday from 10:30-11:45 at the CA House, 118 S. 37th Street on the UPenn campus (bet. Chestnut & Sansom).

Silent meditation begins at 10:10.

Each Celebration is a blend of inspiring words, personal spiritual practice and fellowship with bright Lights of Divine Love just like you. It's a hands-on approach to make the concepts of Practical Spirituality accessible in a powerful and personal way.
