The USCN is a nonprofit (501c3) organization. We are recognized for providing Spiritual teachings for the purpose of educating the student in the essence of Spirituality. The goals of this community is to create an atmosphere of respect, peace and harmony among all beliefs. Our purpose is to provide a platform of respected values, which translates into unity for all.
This is a Spiritual and Educational platform. It includes Church Services and Classes. We are friends with the ESC, ISA, BRDNSKY, HOP, SNAPIT, 13 Dragonfly's, NANED, and others.
Through empowering others, we become a source of growth offering direction. As we continue to align ourselves, we learn that the universe does not speak English or any other language but speaks to our spirit. This brings comfort by establishing connections of love, compassion and wisdom throughout all of Nature’s existence. By creating friends and helping each other we can do so much more. We learn harmony and the value of our personhood through sharing and caring. We realize ethics are a part of our spiritual growth. We begin to see we do have obigations to ourselves as well as others. As we continue to create an enviornment that is inclusive of faiths, and beliefs, we find peace and compassion for our fellow humans.
The USCN has established a structure which will provide additional education. We do this by educating the mind and by going into the heart (the life force) of our being. The longest journey ever traveled is from head to heart. The process of aligning our thoughts and emotions can take a lifetime. This is an internal process. We teach spiritual concepts to enhance living. As we learn we realize that to know our self, is where power lies. Through education we expand awareness'.
The USCN purpose to educate the students not only in religious theology but also in the pure essence of Spirituality, which is carried through our innate intelligence. The student needs to learn experientially how to connect the knowledge of the mind and the innate wisdom of the Spirit. It is our intent to bring education that will not endorse or oppose any religion, but will instead, have educators who teach and apply the Spiritual Laws of established religions and promote mutual aid in advancing traditional religious teachings and Spiritual education.

It's a study of how customs in Biblical times effect our lives today.
The Israelites believed Prophets spoke to the people from God. Priests: represented the people before God… Kings: established God law.
Metaphors and symbolisms were powerful word tools in the Jewish culture. They gave deeper and concrete meaning to abstract concepts. Most of the symbols and customs used in the Bible are easily recognizable to modern English readers. These influnences are still strong today, and we continue to practice many of these rituals and patterns in our society. This study will show you how this culture impact our lives today.
Liberal biblical scholars have been more inclined than conservative ones to practice literary approaches to the Bible, it is easy to associate those approaches with theological liberalism, but there is no necessary connection between them.
It is the writers of the Bible who gave us a literary Bible, so the origin of the concept can be traced back to them. Several qualities make a text literary, and it is easy to overlook the most basic and universal principle of literature. Literature takes human experience as its subject. When we read a work of literature, we share an experience. Literature is truthful to life and experience and is not primarily a delivery system for an idea. A literary approach to the Bible identifies and relives the human experiences that are portrayed.
Professors who teach literature and creative writing claim that literature shows rather than tells. To "show" is to embody concretely; to "tell" is to express an abstraction or idea. The sixth commandment tells us "you shall not murder." The story of Cain and Abel shows and embodies that truth, and it does so without using the abstraction murder and without commanding us to refrain from it. When the rich young ruler asked Jesus to define neighbor, Jesus instead told a story (the parable of the good Samaritan) that shows us what neighborly behavior looks like. A literary approach to the Bible interacts with the embodied experiences that biblical authors place before us.
Leland Ryken (PhD, University of Oregon) served as professor of English at Wheaton College for nearly fifty years.
I find no discord between what I believe theologically about the Bible and the study of Bible Literature
Respecting the literary aspects of the Bible is a way of observing the biblical authors' intentions.

Astronomy and Astrology were viewed as one.
After the 17th century, the two concepts were separated with an important distinction. Astrology and Astronomy were once revered for its insights collectively and in our personal destiny. It was considered helpful in our individual soul’s growth, and it has been integrated into every culture in history. The history of Astronomy and Astrology gives us insight into our deepest desires and destiny. Learn what the ancient knew about these arts as a combinding force.
Classes are available through Zoom and are seasonal.

The word Aura's does not appear in the Bible, but the Bible does speak of light, or the Glory of God in many places. Because of scientific advancements we know that our bodies has pathways for transmitting light. These are the same as the meridian pathways used by Acupuncturist. Science has proven that all cells communcate through light emission. Our strongest emmissions of light are through our hands and our head.
This is a unique and detailed class. Classes are available through Zoom
The Essenes - The Sevenfold Path of Peace, derived from the ancient Essene teachings, offers a solid foundation in essential lifestyle philosophies and practices in the art of conscious living. A consciousness based on the core vision of the unity of all life.
The teaching appears in the Zend Avesta of Zoroaster, who translated it into a way of life that was followed for thousands of years. It contains the fundamental concepts of Brahmanism, the Vedas and the Upanishads; and the Yoga systems of India sprang from the same source. Buddha later gave forth essentially the same basic ideas and his sacred Bodhi tree is correlated with the Essene Tree of Life. In Tibet, the teaching once more found expression in the Tibetan Wheel of Life.
The Essenes lived on the shores of lakes and rivers, away from cities and towns, and practiced a communal way of life, sharing equally in everything.
They had no servants or slaves and were said to have been the first people to condemn slavery both in theory and practice. There were no rich and no poor amongst them, both conditions being considered by them as deviations from the Law. They established their own economic system, based wholly on the Law, and showed that all man’s food and material needs can be attained without a struggle, through knowledge of the Law.
The word Essene means healer or ‘therapeutie’, which they were well known for; they healed many people. They knew that disease is created when one deviates from the law of nature. By living in harmony with the Elemental forces and the cycles of nature, health and happiness return.
Dead Sea Scrolls - The Dead Sea Scrolls (also the Qumran Caves Scrolls) are religious manuscripts discovered in 1946/7 at the Qumran Caves, in the West Bank, on the northern shore of the Dead Sea. Dating from the 3rd century BCE to the 1st century CE. The Dead Sea Scrolls are considered to be a keystone in the history of archaeology with great historical, religious, and linguistic significance because they include the oldest surviving manuscripts of entire books later included in the biblical canons.
Classes are ongoing and will guide you through unlocking your own mysteries. As a result, outdated concepts and beliefs will fall away.
Teachers who are involved in mystical studies and support the scientific and subjective theories add validity to create an environment of learning that can be validated.
Spiritual knowledge encourages us to learn about ourselves as well as others. The great master will always teach
When you intuitively connects with your spirit energy it covers multiple aspects of your life. It restores faith in the continuity of life, and gives clarity of vision.
It is not science vs. spirituality. It is recognizing that each process explains things that the other cannot. There is a place both can be valued. I invite you to marry Science and Spirituality
for a more meaningful understanding of ourselves and the worlds around us.
The studies of Philosophy in Religious and Sacred Sciences is a form of Spiritual knowledge that lies at the heart of both divine revelation and traditional science, which also is at the core of a sacred tradition. We know that when Sacred Science is incorporated into Spiritual or Religious concepts it challenges the mind, producing ultimate realities beyond the matter of our own thinking.
Mahala D. Bacon, Th.D.
Spirituality and Spiritualism has opened doors for more diverse approaches to Spirituality and Religion. The foundation of Spiritualism enhances Spirituality.
Science has validated legitimate approaches from healing to communication with the Spirit. We would be foolish not to explore and utilize their findings and information. Science is a community governed by the laws of Nature.
Spirituality and Spiritualism has brought thought-increasing concepts to the world of Spiritual studies and phenomena. We know that applying the Spiritual concepts enhances life. The power of self-knowledge lies with education as we expand our awareness. In uniting the thread that connects our head to our hearts, we find wholeness and realize we are complete.
Through empowering others, we become a source of growth offering direction. As we continue to align ourselves with God, we learn that the universe speaks to our spirit. This brings comfort by establishing connections of love, compassion and wisdom throughout all of Nature’s existence.
The union between the two paths enhances healing and increases value in intuitive communication with the Spirit by applying the Spiritual laws of established practices. This, therefore, illuminates understanding.
Together this works is a leading foundational component for conventional practices.
As we become a beacons of light, this is the cornerstone with which we build our lives.
We are the reflection of a new way.
