The Spiritualist Living Center continues to host services on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at 10:30 a.m. MST (Phoenix time). We typically log-on around 10:00 a.m. and begin the service at 10:30. If you do not have a computer, you can use a telephone, I-pad, or your high-tech watch. We are working to make our services more accessible to as many members as we can. We’re still working out the wrinkles with Zoom, but we are one great community, and I would love to see you all. Hang this information on your refrigerator so you have it handy when you want to use it. The information to log on to my Zoom will not change from week to week.
When you are on Zoom for a service, remember—the room in which you are sitting becomes a special place where Spirit will join you. When the service begins, mute your microphones (or I will) so we can create a quiet space. Always check the SLC website to learn the latest about what is happening in our church. You will also find the button to make your church donation so we can continue to serve you and others.

Séances—In the future, we plan to have séances at different times during the year. A séance as we will hold them will not be like those you see on TV with candles and handholding and shaking tables and physical phenomena. No, we will be focusing on communication with those who have transitioned and perhaps trancing that may occur. There is no guarantee that everyone present will receive a greeting or message from Spirit, but the group is smaller than is usual with an all-message service and more personal. We ask that if you come to a séance, you prepare by inviting someone you wish to speak with to come. That doesn’t mean that Spirit will come, but it might help. All seances begin at 5:00 on Saturday and usually last an hour or an hour and a half.
[After Covid-If there is interest, we will plan a séance in Goodyear area after the first of the year.]

Many people have never heard of Spiritualism. Exactly what is it?
Spiritualism is a religion rooted in the history of civilization since before the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greco-Roman society.
Attempts to communicate with spirit have been recorded since early times whether through dreams or priestesses or various forms of divination.
Modern Spiritualism was developed in the middle of the 19th century and spread rapidly following the Civil War into the 20th century.
Over the years, Spiritualism has weathered the storms of history, but remains a movement that is now becoming more evident as the public opens its minds and hearts to the presence of others around us who are not in human form.
The Spiritualist Living Center is a member of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches, the oldest and largest of the Spiritualist Associations in America.
We define Spiritualism as a Science, a Philosophy, and as a Religion.
A Spiritualist is one who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in the communication between this and the Spirit World by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mold his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication.
As such, mediumship, healing, and the phenomena of Spiritualism, including clairvoyance, trance work, automatic writing, and any other manifestation proving the continuity of life are part of Spiritualism as are the commitment and dedication to love, compassion, and service seen in the lives of our members. –Rev. Dr. Norma J. Turner, NST

Our Membership Meeting:
On March 21, 2020, members and supporters of the Spiritualist Living Center gathered by various means for the fifth Annual Members’ Meeting. I wanted to extend a personal thank you for all the support and love shown to one another in our church gathering on Saturdays and our member’s meeting where some came to the Ralls’ home and other joined us on Zoom. This type of meeting was a first for all of us, and I wish more of you were able to experience the camaraderie we shared.
Following reports from all the committee, discussion of our church services for both the east valley and west valley churches. Obviously, we had a great deal of discussion of the bylaws to understand what we could and could not do and still be in compliance with the bylaws of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches who gave us our charter. The board came up with a strategy that is explained below.
After accepting the resignation of Debby Murrin from the office of President, we held elections.
Our new board consists of the following people:
President : Denise Hionas
Vice-President: Ray Ralls
Treasurer: Dennis Murrin
Secretary: Maggie Simpson
Trustee: Aileen Picard
We are grateful to Debby Murrin and Sue Blessing for serving on the Board these past three years. Your time, efforts, and support have been important to the growth and development of our church—and they continue to be important. In our church, every person plays an important role. There will always be another time and another opportunity for each one of you.
We are all aware (I assume) of the changes occurring in our society at this time. This is a disease we must take seriously. As a result, the Board and I have made some decisions to go online with our Saturday services.
If you would prefer not to receive communications from the Spiritualist Living Center, just let me know by return email.
Let Spirit awareness guide your every step.
Rev. Norma Turner, NST
