Spirit's Dedication of the First Spiritual Temple
September 27, 1885
Dedication Given by Spirit Star:
"I consecrate this Temple
to holy living, to universal brotherhood (sisterhood), to the cultivation
of that spirit which the Divine Master brought with him, in his life and
teachings when on earth, to unity of the spiritual life with that of earth,
that there may be but one life, one brotherhood (sisterhood), one God and
Father of us all; that from this place may be taught that wisdom which
shall recognize more than teachings from the intellect, even the
development and wisdom of the heart-life; that here the hearts of people
may be awakened to do, as well as their heads to think, for only through
the wisdom that comes from both heart and head can God be brought near to
help us in all our endeavors. And may all who come to listen have receptive
hearts to be taught how to live the divine life. Amen."
