Rev. Celeste is with her friend Rev. Mary Beth Speer discussing a lot! Rev. Mary Beth and her husband Michael Speer pastored a Religious Science Center in Southern California and a Religious Science center in the Chicago suburbs.

Celeste asked Mary Beth about what drove her into the human potential movement. Mary Beth found her journey to be quite organic. Starting out with a compative religions class (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparative_religion#:~:text=Comparativereligionisthebranch,migration)oftheworld'sreligions), then becoming a Methodist (https://www.dictionary.com/browse/methodist), going clear in Scientology (https://www.scientology.org/what-is-scientology/), and looking at organized religion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organized_religion), but her real awakening came from reading "Out on a Limb" (https://www.amazon.com/Out-Limb-Shirley-Maclaine/dp/0553273701) by Shirley Maclaine.

MaryBeth landed in New Thought at Unity La Crescenta (https://www.lacrescentaunity.com/). MaryBeth's passion for New Thought came in understanding quantum physics (https://www.newscientist.com/term/quantum-physics/), waves and particles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave%E2%80%93particle_duality).  Gary Zukav's "The Dancing Wu Li Masters" (https://www.amazon.com/Dancing-Wu-Li-Masters-Overview/dp/0060959681) really helped MaryBeth go deeper.

The aspect of Law was the draw for Mary Beth to Science of Mind, so she was most influenced by Thomas Troward (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Troward). Mary Beth likes a law is neutral (be it spiritual law or physical law). Prior to discovering metaphysics, her God was a "ticked-off", capricious god.

MaryBeth enjoys doing study groups. She has done A Course in Miracles (acim.org) and the Book of Revelations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Revelation) in the past. She began doing study groups in the early 1980s where the group would ingest and embody a book. Her current groups both take their time exploring the books and have been meeting for several years.

After being a Regional Support Coordinator for the Midwest for CSL (csl.org), MaryBeth realized she just wants to move the Movement forward. She currently serves on the board for the Affiliated New Thought Network (ANTN), an organization founded in 1992 (antn.org) that has Religious Science, Unity and Divine Science centers.

Angelo Pizelo and his wife Dr. Stella Pizelo founded the Emerson Theological Institute (https://emersontheologicalinstitute.wordpress.com/) and Angelo, leads  ANTN, where all are welcome. Emerson is the teaching arm of ANTN, but they are separate organizations.

Rev. Celeste shares her poem "Surrender", from her book "In Spirit In Love and is on Amazon.
