Welcome to One Heart Abbey.

Rather than a church of sermons and rituals, we are a church of encouragement; respect for the dignity of each soul; recognition of meaning and purpose of each soul through individual and community efforts, where the sharing of skills, example, guidance, respectful cooperation and creative exchange all work toward living the message of Christ with hope and faith of equality to stream through all walks of life.

 

Although we are so blessed to have tasted Jesus' words and laid our face upon His feet, our purpose does not condemn the religious beliefs of others, nor do we condemn the experience of the other. We simply embrace living by FAITH―BELIEF IN THE LOVE OF GOD OF AND FOR EACH AND EVERY CREATURE. In this embrace we experience the "removal of the veil", which through human misunderstanding and interpretation, we have imposed on ourselves and on our God. Once the veil is lifted, we truly see that God and we are ONE. We see God so well in all that we are able to see ourselves in other and other in ourselves. We welcome all with open arms, open hearts. We listen with all of our presence, so we may render safety for the experience of further lifting of veils. We recognize this lifting of the veil as the truest path toward the lifting of oppression. We embrace Christ as God in flesh, who came to heal oppression through His messages and impartial Love and forgiveness. We are blessed by Mother Mary's fortitude and expression of selfless love. We recognize "the Kingdom is within" with terrific gratitude, which brings healthy humility. And we honor "love your neighbor as yourself", and forgiving as Christ forgives, as the meaning of living Grace. Removal of our own veil to fully accept God within awakens our heart and clears our vision to see how loved we are; that God within is our first and closest neighbor. Once fully embraced, this Love cannot help but be shared. From here we support each other in living out these most important word spoken through Christ. From here we support each other in living by FAITH―again, "In asking you to know Me, I am asking you believe in My Love of and for you. This is faith in Me."

KIRKUS REVIEWS

 

"Kim, your book is so beautiful! I love the poem where you talk about GOD not being Black and White but shades of gray! I totally agree, and there are so many out there who would benefit from reading that poem! It is so true! You strive so much for spiritual awareness and perfection, but you are right in your perspective! We are always growing, learning, and seeking truth. And I do believe that is how GOD wants it! Love your book!"
