Sticker Shock

ADL Blog Images (87)

by Rev. Rita Scheibeck

I don't know about you, but one of my current, frequent phrases has become, "Oh. My. God!" When I venture out on the roadways, it seems that every day the price of gas soars dramatically. I can't help but notice that $60 of basic groceries now costs me $80 just over the past few months. And shipping on just about everything has risen to unprecedented levels. What's a person or a family to do?

Our principles of abundance- yes, abundance- can help us with this. The prosp…

Rev. Dr. Barbara Selwa

July 20, 2022


This is where we will start – All Beings Are Made of LOVE!

SD says TUK-BARB-human is my child and will always be, who has coaxed me many, many times because I have been in my current body for eons, and always will be. You see, as groups of intelligent beings opened door after door, extended life and the true activities of living come forth. They become super beings.

The deep knowledge of good begins and spreads into every u…

Founder Musings: Message from Angel SD

Message from our founder, Rev. Dr. Selwa


Hi, beautiful souls, I am writing to you today from sunny, hot Florida. Sure it’s hot. And today I have a message for all you lovely ministers from my Angel, SD, the beautiful.

SD said,

“This time I will begin by writing and speaking from my planet. An age-old scripture of Love. Love is never kept, never bottled. It must always move or flow. Thus the GREAT ONE LOVE in the beginning created the universe through the movement of ITSELF. The need throug…

Forgiveness is Freedom

ADL Blog Images (53)

by Rev. Dr. Karen Turek, D.D.M.S., Ph.D.

Forgiveness does not mean condoning hurtful behavior, but it does involve the tricky act of letting go of the past. Resentment literally means to re-feel or feel again… and again. It saps our energy and allows us to be controlled by another whether they are alive or have made their transition into their next expression of life. Our unwillingness, or inability, to forgive someone that we feel has wronged us attaches us more to the pain of not having closu…

Is There a Heaven?

ADL Blog Images (52)
This is a sweet little story that I have shared many times, especially with children when asked about heaven. There have been many versions told with each storyteller making it their own. In my experience it inspires hope for the grieving heart and provides a good analogy for explaining transition and transformation after death to children.

All is Good. All is Well.

ADL Blog Images (51)

by Rev. K. Anthony Gogue  


Preparing for the Memorial Day Weekend gathering was quite an experience, after all, it was going to be one of the first public ADL events where people were able to reconnect in person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We, as humanity, have all experienced a long, nearly two-year journey in fear, illness, lack, pain, restlessness, social isolation, and other things directly tied to many spiritual lessons. We were essentially forced to go within to heal our …
