Movie Night at Center
The community is invited to attend the movie, “What is New Thought?” on Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Living in La Crescenta.
Although its influence has been widespread throughout our culture, most people have little knowledge about this far-reaching spiritual movement. Get a closer look at how New Thought has had an impact in the world and find out more about what our Center’s philosophy is based on.
Also at the Center, Dr. Mark Anthony continues his Wednesday night Ayurevedic Perfect Health classes.
All are invited at 7 p.m. Classes can be taken individually for $50.

Spiritual Self-Worth Explored
International speaker Rob Gilbert will give a talk on a core element of mental health in all stages of life – self-worth – on Sunday, June 9 at 2 p.m. at Church of Christ, Scientist, in Montrose. His address will explore how an understanding of God’s nature, and our own, “encourages and empowers us to assert our God-given dominion and to embrace the natural worth of being a child of God.” His topic, “Spiritual self worth heals and transforms human character,” is suitable for youth and adults. There will be childcare for very young children. There is no admission fee.
The sponsoring organization, the Church of Christ, Scientist in Montrose, recognizes the community’s need for events that support social and spiritual progress in the wake of two teen suicides in two years, while also considering the needs of friends, parents, grandparents and those who live alone and those who may feel alone even in a crowd. This event offers practical support for all ages to find meaningful life purpose, and to help others identify a secure basis for worthiness.
Gilbert, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science, served as a chaplain in the U.S. Army, fulfilling assignments in military prisons and hospitals including a tour of duty in Vietnam. He has worked closely with clergy and soldiers of many faiths, and with people who do not identify with a religious practice.
“It requires something more than human will to bring about needed change and silence a deep discontent with our lives,” Gilbert said of what his experiences indicate.
