Greetings from Rev. Simeon Stefanidakis and welcome to the First
Spiritual Temple and its Ayer Institute. The First Spiritual Temple is an
independent Interfaith Church of the Spirit, founded on June 28, 1883, in
Boston. Our founder, Marcellus Seth Ayer, was a
progressive and free-thinking man.
Over the years, the First
Spiritual Temple has gone through many changes, always seeking to adapt to
the current-day needs of people. But, throughout its 134-year history, our
basic principle has remained steadfast: God is Spirit; we are Spirit; and
that is how we are connected. Furthermore, God's greatest gift to us is
freedom of choice; but, with this wondrous gift comes responsibility,
personal and collective.
Marcellus Ayer founded the
Church in order to address the growing needs of people to understand God,
Spirit, Spiritualism, death, Jesus Christ, and the Bible in a more
practical and working manner. He was concerned in addressing the, then,
fairly new Spiritualist movement; not as a religion, but as a means whereby
all religions and faiths could find a common ground, in God as Spirit and
in ourselves as Spirit.
