Community Activism Begins at Home

In the Phoenix area about 1,581 adults are on the street without shelter and 4,308 adults and children are in emergency and transitional shelters each night (2013). Rev. Wellington and her Once-A-Month Church provided over 1,235 meals to the poor and homeless in local parks in central Phoenix in 2013. During her teaching of "Community Activism Begins at Home," congregations and groups will have the opportunity to learn how to love as God loves, to embrace those who are poor and homeless as one with them in their community. Class discrimination toward the homeless is prevalent in our society. Dorothy reveals the discrimination and explains ways to reach them through Love, Respect and Dignity. Community activism begins at home, changing our personal attitudes, judgments and criticisms against others and teaching our children likewise. We all can make a difference, one person at a time! (Matthew 25:34-42)

Empowering the Mind Against Obstacles
Your self-esteem is your appraisal, your evaluation and your feelings about yourself. Your opinion of the person who you have been living with since you were born: Yourself. Participants will increase knowledge in how their mind and thoughts influence life actions. Gain an understanding to the importance of forgiveness and letting go of the past, damaging perceptions and dysfunctional behaviors. "When you're happy for no reason you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them." After completing "Empowering the Mind Against Obstacles," participants will be prepared to immediately take steps to begin freedom in creating their positive futures without the controls of negative thinking. Reference books, "Basic Principles for Change 30 Day Workbook" and "Eliminating Addictions and Bad Habits" can be ordered at website link on the right (Wellington Books).


Healing for Life Hardships
Participants will increase their understanding that their physical and non-physical (spiritual) body are one and this unity is necessary for holistic healing and well-being. Healing for Life Hardships does not require a religion, pastor or synagogue, everyone can learn to receive spiritual (heart) healing and even gain more in being healed from physical ailments and emotional traumas. Spiritual Healing has a part in being healed from sickness and disease, addictions, drugs, alcohol, relationships, divorce, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, etc. The invisible field of spirit (the unseen, the subconscious mind) influences 95% of a person's behavior and actions. Participants will learn the Eight Barriers to Truth (Resistance to Healing) and complete an exercise on Spiritual Forgiveness. The learned knowledge and awareness can be applied to self-improvement, work, home and relationships. Reference book, "Spiritual Healing Beyond Religion" can be ordered at website link on the right (Wellington Books).


Personal Intimacy with God
Feel alone, how does God become my companion? Learn how to live in the supernatural with God in a physical world and how to continue maturing in a love relationship with Him. How can you love an invisible God? Participants will become better equipped in examining their motives to why they do the things they do. Are you afraid of what you think, to share with others because it sounds different, not of the norm? God wants you to learn more. From Personal Intimacy with God, participants will start to desire more growth in spiritual knowledge and wisdom. You can't physiologically locate the spiritual center of a person's private world, but it is there. It is eternal, and it is the point at which we most intimately commune with God. Participants will be excited in allocating their time and reach Sabbath rest. Reference workbook, "12-Month Spiritual Journal" can be ordered at website link on the right (Wellington Books).


Fearless Faith
Fear has torment and separates you from your faith in God and the miraculous. You will learn how powerful you are in overcoming problems and hardships by saying Yes to Faith and No to Fear. Learn why it is important to let go of fearful prayers, worried prayers and depressed prayers. It is God's heart and desire for you to live in peace, love and joy everyday. Learn how to speak in Fearless Faith and receive what you say! Remove the obstacles that have kept you from having Fearless Faith in God and having Faith in yourself. Be empowered in how to handle your fears and to live by Faith in God's Truth. Reference book, "Meet the Fear of Fear" can be ordered at website link on the right (Wellington Books).


Celebrating Life After Loss
Any loss that causes a significant change in our lives is a life loss. Death is the most obvious life loss. "When a person is born, we celebrate; when they marry we jubilate; but when they die we act as if nothing has happened." (Margaret Mead). The workshop will unfold the hidden sufferings of losing a love one and will also provide added insight to professionals who work with grief and loss from suicide. The workshop will be beneficial to those who have experienced a recent loss or from years ago. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will understand that their grief is normal and that the process in loss can lead to healing and personal growth.
