We come to this work in ministry with substantial life experience and a spirit  with which we trust we can offer others the understanding of life's lessons we have learned, and guide others on the path to spiritual awareness and Christ consciousness
that we all travel together in this life on earth.

Malinda Cramer began teaching classes in 1887, and in May 1888 chartered The Home College of Divine Science, for educational, ethical and religious purposes; for instruction in Divine Science and its therapeutic application - the Christ Method of Healing.   In her book Divine Science and Healing, she writes "My purpose was to logically show the conclusions that must necessarily be drawn from a true knowledge of The Statement of Being and The Law of Expression.  With that determination I have persevered in bringing out the detail of Truth and presenting it as Divine Science."  Malinda Cramer's first spiritual experience as a practitioner was her own healing which came with the recognition that the Power of Healing is God.  Malinda Cramer was connected with many of the early New Thought leaders and taught classes in Chicago at the Emma Curtis Hopkins School, and in Kansas for Charles and Myrtle Fillmore with whom she was associated for almost fourteen years. Cramer worked for unity among the scientists. Under her direction, the International Divine Science Association was formed in 1892 to unite all Scientists (the precursor of the International New Thought Alliance).  Malinda Cramer taught Unity of Life and the Divinity of All Living.  She wrote "Do you wonder at my earnestness in preaching the gospel of freedom, or at my determination to do all in my power to forward this movement of Truth and extend it throughout the world, and bring all to a knowledge of the Truth of Unity and Brotherhood?  This  consciousness of Being has been the one and only basis for all the work in which I am now engaged, or have been instrumental in inauguration." 

It is in this spirit that we, Reverend Sedare and Reverend Will consciously offer this service of Love to God, the 'Mighty I AM Presence' for the Healing of All, that they too may know, see and feel the power and Omnipresence of GOD in their being and world.
