You and I are valued beyond measure.
We are not valuable because we are a member of a certain group or because we call the Creator a unique name.
We are not valuable because we follow a particular teacher, leader, guru or saint.
We are not valuable because of our spiritual discipline or special diet.
We are valuable because we are a spark of the Divine Creator and an expression of pure divine Love.
The Creator is only described two times in all of the Christian Bible; once as Love and once as Light. Scripture also says that we are made in the image and likeness of the Creator. Thus, we are Love and Light.
The only thing that gurus, priests, rabbis and elders can do for us to to point us back in the direction of home, our home is within, and fan that divine spark of Love.

OUR STATEMENT OF CONSCIOUSNESS:
Thank you Divine Creator and Higher Power, within the Heart of Each of Us, for the experience of Your Presence through our committed participation in Seraphim Center. This is a safe, supportive, and spiritual environment where we are each freely able to "Let go and Let God. We know and affirm that we as individuals and Seraphim Center, as a community, is worthy of the fullness of the Universe flowing to and through our lives.
THE IMPORTANCE OF LOVING SERVICE.....
Seraphim Center is about giving of ourselves in Loving Service. This is different than the traditional idea about obligated service, where one gives of ones self out of some sense of guilt or obligation because of the blessings we have received.
Loving Service is really giving to oneself, through service to others. It is a new standard. Rather than looking at someone less fortunate and saying under our breath, "There but for the Grace of God, go I." We are experienced a new awareness of the Family of Humankind, the Oneness we have with all our brothers and sisters, regardless of tradition, experience and station in life. This "Unity with All" now leads us to say,
"There for the Grace of God, go I" or more simply, "There go I."
Seraphim Center brings to spiritual leaders the training necessary to have empathy for and work with the special needs of folks in prison and jail, homelessness and under-employment, retirement and elderly concerns, singles, and youth of all ages. Each have special needs.
We work to assist in loving and gentle ways, always with the over-riding concern to demonstrate the loving esteem we hold for the individual. The following principle from the New York Times best selling book "Conversations With God" says it nicely: "Every Day Is a New Opportunity To Re-Create Anew The Grandest Version of the Greatest Vision You Ever Had About Yourself".
Seraphim is about Re-Creation and Spiritual Empowerment.
