ADL Blog-Essence of the Month_Lavendar-2021_01

by Rev. Shellie Enteen

There is no better way to begin the Aromatic Year than with a discussion of Lavender (Lavandula officinalis), as it is generally thought of as “the one essence to have if you can have only one.” The beautiful purple flowers have made Lavender a popular garden plant in many countries. From ancient times, it has been used as a strewing, sachet, and bath herb (its name deriving from the Latin lavare, to wash.) For aromatic qualities, the finest Lavender is produced in Englan…

ADL Blog-Bach Flower of the Month_Mimulus-2021_01

by Rev. Shellie Enteen

By way of introduction, the first series of articles on the Bach Flower of the Month will focus on the Twelve Healers. These were the original remedies discovered in the 1920s and 30s by English physician Dr. Edward Bach as he searched for a totally noninvasive method to heal all ills—physical, mental, and emotional—a goal he had since childhood. He was an intuitive, observant ‘sensitive’ who recognized the effect of the mind’s negative vibration on the body and the resul…

Ombudsman Writings - November 2020

By Rev. Randy Fillmore

"Now What?"

With seemingly multiple hundred-year events happening since 2020 began, we've been reluctant even to think about "Now What"?.  Wild fires, pandemic, civil unrest, loss of historic civil rights leader and a champion for equal protection, and now, we're embarking on a national election that will result in certain national upheaval regardless of the outcome.

Besides all the above, I have pondered the "Now What" question from another perspective.  Not meant to d…

Ombudsman Writings - October 2020

ADL blog_Ombudsman Writings_2020_10

By Rev. Randy Fillmore

"Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh"

There are days when as much as I want to demonstrate calm and peaceful demeanor, I allow circumstances to alter my thinking and resulting actions, where I am anything but peaceful and calm. The more upset I get, the more things seem to spiral into the abyss of cross between a day-in-the-life of cartoon character Charlie Brown and the Friday the 13th horror movie franchise.

When I begin to experience such a day, I want to remember to stop, breathe, an…

Scripture from the Planet of the Wise One

ADL blog_Founder Musings_2020_09

by Rev. Dr. Barbara Selwa

Before we begin, let us bring out some things describing The Holy Wise One. He is not incarnate on Earth but lives on a planet which is classified as an angel world. This means that it is higher spiritually than Earth, i.e. no wars, hunger or cruelty there. Below is a section of the Angel world's guiding beliefs (and also scientific findings. The Holy Wise One is also called "SD". I, (Barb Selwa) have known him for a very long time and I don't know what I would do with…

How I was led to The Alliance of Divine Love

ADL Blog_How I was led to The Alliance of Divine Love_Carolyn Harris

by Rev. Dr. Carolyn Harris

One day I received an invitation embossed with gold in the mail. I had been invited to join the Universal Spiritual Healer’s Association. Thinking I’d never heard of that, I set it aside.

When my husband Harry was going through the mail that evening, he said, “What’s this?”

And I said, “Heaven only knows. Just toss it.”

He thought I should follow up on it and at least find out what it was about. Next morning I called the number and was answered by a man named Rusty…
