We all sit at the table as Spiritualists. Why do you think that so many churches rotate who runs the program and why they have different speakers each week?
Simply put it is because this is a shared experience. We are always learning and growing. It is when a community stops that process or rejects the shared concept and wants it to be more lead by any one person that a problem exists.
Each person defines their relationship with God. Their connection is direct. We as Spiritualists have a direct connection and we do not need a middleman (or Religion) to define it for us and explain it to us.
Spiritualism is a way of life. The minute we start forming it in a way that is an organized Religion with dogma we begin to lose our way.
