Meet Joan Thomas, Our New Featured Artist
Joan Thomas of Andover, NJ is our new Featured Artist in the lobby of our center. Joan achieves a marvelous luminosity to her paintings that has to be seen to be believed. Be sure to view this beautiful display of oils, pastels, giclées and mixed media pieces, which will remain on exhibit until the end of February.
Joan paints landscapes, seascapes, travel scenes and more. She strives to create visual stories, one stroke at a time. Her passion for creating art started on long, lazy summer afternoons during childhood, as she roamed the family farm in Iowa, searching for scenes worthy of her sketchpad and pencil. Today she takes inspiration from local sights, like the walking trails at Kittatinny State Park, biking along the rail trails, or boating on Lake Mohawk.
Our 2021 theme, “How to Stay Centered, No Matter What,” is based on a system devised nearly a century ago by Unity cofounder Charles Fillmore.
Fillmore defined the 12 powers, attributes that he believed formed the basis of our Christ consciousness. The more we develop them, the closer we are to expressing our true being, our divine nature.
December 2021 Theme: Life
Life is the infinite endowment of God, and eternal life is happening now.
Walking the labyrinth is a journey to a predestined center. It is a place for praying, walking meditation or finding answers.
Start with a pause, taking a deep breath, creating an intention, or asking a question. Take slow deliberate steps. At the center stop, let go and become open to receive. Return slowly knowing that good is on its way.
Re-enter your live feeling refreshed and renewed.
Drawing on eight decades of life — and his career as a writer, teacher, and activist — Palmer explores the questions age raises and the promises it holds. “Old,” he writes, “is just another word for nothing left to lose, a time to dive deep into life, not withdraw to the shallows.”
But this book is not for elders only. It was written to encourage adults of all ages to explore the way their lives are unfolding. It’s not a how-to-do-it book on aging, but a set of meditations in prose and poetry that turn the prism on the meaning(s) of one’s life, refracting new light at every turn.

Now is a perfect opportunity to join in a quest for deeper understanding of yourselves and your world. Most of us spend a lifetime trying to figure out who we are and how we relate to others and to God. Author Christopher L. Heuretz helps us discover our own personal map to the soul.
• Identify self-destructive patterns and ways to find freedom
• Awaken hidden gifts we each possess
• Realize the “why” behind your own personal stereotype
This just might be the next step in your spiritual journey.
