Our Dedication Celebration and Barn Party Weekend is being held the weekend of April 26-28. You can find the schedule at www.facebook.com/eolhec/events. Anyone who is in the area is invited to join us for this special weekend, commemorating our commitment to sharing God's healing gifts.
For those not able to attend in person, we thank you for joining us here in print. We will post wonderful pictures next week, after the celebration is done! In the meanwhile, we are sending our love to you all.
With the purpose of expanding our understanding of Godâs healing Power and of applying this understanding toward healing ourselves and the world, we join together as an interfaith church.
Holding religious freedom as sacred, we are committed to no doctrinal test of membership other than the desire to "Do that which is right.â
Our common thread is our belief in the Healing Power inherent in all of life. We refer to this Power as God, taking care not to infringe upon anyoneâs right to view God in accordance to their own individual beliefs.
We worship together in the Spirit of Truth, Love and Harmony. We welcome into our fellowship all peaceful seekers of Wisdom and Light.
We open ourselves to the ever-unfolding awareness of the presence of God in all aspects of life.
In humility and gratitude, we accept the responsibility of promoting the well-being of all. We support each other in this healing initiative. We dedicate our efforts to this sacred cause.
What does this mean? This means we are cheerfully and diligently accepting the calling to share with the world the awareness of God's healing gifts. This means we are to share our hearts, our minds, our efforts. This means we are offering ourselves as open-channels for God's healing work, understanding always that God is Love, God is Life, God is Good. In this belief we understand that God's will for us is always good, and that all of our needs are abundantly provided for through the Love and Grace of a merciful Power much greater than our own limited thinking could ever conceive. This Power is Life. It is in us and in all of nature. This Power is available and active in us every moment that we are alive. Remember, this Power is always Good...Always Love.
Breathe......Think about that thought for a moment. Always Love and Goodness in you, supplying all of your needs...this Power running through all of nature. The only time things go wrong is when we intercede through the improper use of free will, and mess it up for us and/or someone else. Everyone is not to blame. It is a sickness that runs through this world. BUT what we are here to help each other to learn is that the Power for Good is still LIVING in each of us NOW!
Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center is here to help in the effort of healing the world, by reminding us that we're ALL meant to be healers! We are created in the Perfect image of God!
Our bodies are perfectly and intricately designed in the most incredible manner...to LIVE! And the earth and the air and the water...all perfect matches to what we need...to LIVE! Everything is set up for us to live, and to live very well. We have the perfect food for out bodies given to us in the form of herbs, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, whole grains...all for free, and all capable of replenishing itself! The system is GOOD, as is God!
Our minds are likewise perfectly designed to carry forth our commands and to reason with others, creating our own little world in this big world of us all. Our minds are extremely powerful, and capable of so many things, as history and science have shown. We are capable of much, much more than we currently use our minds to do. Our mind is our conscious link with the Mind of God...the All-Knowing Universe...and it is only limited by our ability to open it up to the Source of all Good, Life and Love. Through the proper use of the mind, we surely, surely can heal.
Spirit is where we turn for our guidance, in knowing how to find the proper balance of body and mind. Spirit is the leader, always, of the three aspects of being, for this aspect is the essence of us which is eternal. Spirit is housed in a physical body and served and/or limited by the mind of man, but Spirit is our direct link with Love, and Love is the greatest healer of all. God in us is made active through Love.
For true healing to occur, it must be based in the spirit, agreed to by the mind, and carried forth in the body. For this reason we form as a Church, ever reminding us in holistic practice to place Love as the highest value and guide.
In the spirit of Love, we wish to offer practical solutions to healing challenges. We wish to facilitate the process of bringing the healer in each of us out. We wish to provide an environment conducive to mutual learning, always centered in faith and in love. We, as individuals all have our shortcomings and difficulties, but as a group, we can lift each other up, seeing the good in each other and in ourselves and the rest of the world.
THANK YOU, from Dr. Jody Evans, on behalf of Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center, to all the people who have helped in bringing this vision forth into manifestation.
Thanks to my mother, Frances Eshelman, for inspiring me, teaching me, leading the way, believing in me, listening to me, trusting me in her healing journey, and always, always giving me unconditional love.
Thanks, too, to my father, Ronald Eshelman, for giving me roots, and for teaching me good basic values. Iâm grateful for his example of giving back to the community, and not only being a seeker, but also an assistant and leader in the quest for Truth and Righteousness sake.
Thank you to the rest of my family and all of friends, for giving me love and support through the years, and mostly to my husband, Dean Evans, who stands by my side in this work and gives substance to so many dreams. We would not be joining together in this place today if not for him.
Thank you, mostly to God, for abundantly and graciously providing for all our needs, to the following people and also to the countless participants, readers, helpers, leaders, teachers, volunteers, group members and others who have shared their presence with us!
