COMMUNICATIONS WITH ISA MEMBERS
"To be successful as an organization, we need a singleness of purpose
to pull together as a community.  We do that through co-operation.
As we apply the spiritual principles, our growth will lead us to cohesion
and this will be our principle step in attraction."

[Convention letter to the ISA membership from President, Rev. Mahala Bacon] 


May 5, 2019                      

Welcome everyone,

I am excited to see each of you. It’s a privilege sharing this convention weekend of worship,
healing, education, and the friendship of like minds with everyone. We are a fellowship for all
people, and I extend a warm welcome.

When we think of Spirituality, generally it’s along the lines of how it relates to us personally. I
want to invite you to think of Spirituality as a process of the universe. Why that concept is
important and what we learn is that this is the link which connects us with a greater
consciousness we call God. The roots of equality, compassion, respect, and love grow out of
this connection.

Spiritualism is designed to unite our world with the world of Spirit. It’s a forward movement to
reveal that life continues and has purpose as well as keeping your identity through energy
impulses. How this is done is by learning the language of the Spirit. The Spirit speaks in subtle
reminders. We must recognize these patterns in order to bring them into our life.
Spiritual concepts enable enhanced living. Each of us comes to realize that knowing our self is
where our power lies. As we align ourselves with the power of the universe, we learn that the
universe speaks to our spirit. “Emotions are Simply the Voice of the Spirit.”

Most of us learn experientially how to connect the knowledge of the mind and the wisdom of
the Spirit. The Spirit’s intent is to introduce us to a way that will not oppose any religion or
belief pattern, but will instead, enable us to apply and teach the Spiritual Laws of established
practices and promote mutual healing by advancing traditional teachings. Through education,
we expand awareness.

As leaders in our community, it is important that we lead our private and public lives to form
cohesion with the ideals of the Spirit and place them in our heart. The reason for that, is Spirit
unites through our hearts. As we learn to connect through our hearts, which is an ongoing
process, our light becomes the beacon for humanity.

We have the insight and ability to connect with individuals in a way that often has not been
recognized. As we partake in this element of communication, Spirit can make a healing
difference.

May God and the Angels bless you and Keep you,

 Rev. Mahala D. Bacon, Th.D.

 Rev. Mahala's Survey


Changes you would like to see in the ISA

Survey June-July 2018

In 1924 Amanda Flower felt the need of an organization that would promote Spiritualism

and let churches group together for protection and strength;

yet still give the individual churches the freedom to worship in their way.

With this thought in mind, she became the founder of the “

Independent Spiritualist Association

of the United States of America”.

The organization has grown in membership in several states and world-wide recognition. 

It still maintains the purpose for which it was founded…  

Togetherness with Independence


1. What Kind of changes would you like to see in Quarterlies / Conventions?

2. What would you like to include in Education?

3. If you could see changes in our policies, what would you want?

4. How would you suggest we could grow the ISA that would attract more interest?


Please sign your name and how we can reach you. 

It is my belief that we, as your board, need more of an open conversation. 

Creating short and long-term goals is essential.

With a plan to make needed changes and updating,

some of our procedures should bring more appeal.

Exploring innovative ideas is crucial to sustaining our organization.  


Key words that may be helpful as we share and explore ideas 

in creating a broader and more comprehensive association; 

along with moving forward to further our growth are:

Education
Clarity
Purpose
Direction
Goals
Growth
Potential
Timeless

When spirituality is joined with science,

we demonstrate how to bring Spiritual Laws into established practices.  

This is the element we can use to promote mutual aid

in advancing traditional spiritual teachings.  

By doing this, we encourage more of an inclusive

rather than exclusive atmosphere.
