We bring families together to celebrate on days like today and we help when times get tough and families need answers to the difficult questions of raising children and running a family.”

— Glendy Goodsell, ED Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 8th, perfectly timed between afternoon thunderstorms, Osceola Courtyard in Clearwater was filled with over 300 local parents and children for El Dia del Nino – Children's Day. Families enjoyed hula hoops, water balloons, dancing, music, and all the fun that such a day brings. The event was organized by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida chapter and included participation from non-profits: I Am the Group Foundation, Shihan School of Survival Martial Art, Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association, Tabernacle of Divine Glory Ministries, and Grupo Folklorico Mahetzi who opened the event with traditional Mexican costumes and dances. Children’s Day was founded in Mexico and spread throughout Latin America to set aside a day promoting the importance of children and family values.

“We recognize that children truly are the future,” said Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Center in downtown Clearwater. “We bring families together to celebrate on days like today and we help when times get tough and families need answers to the difficult questions of raising children and running a family.”

While kids had fun with the balloon artist, face painter, and arts and crafts, parents got educated on all the vital work that the participating non-profits do in our community. They also learned about the Scientology Handbook subjects such as: How to Resolve Conflicts, Marriage, Children and The Components of Understanding, all of which can be studied in free online courses at www.volunteerministers.org.

The highlight of the event occurred in the team games of the egg relay, three-legged and potato sack races, and the water balloon toss.

To find out more about the Scientology Volunteer Ministers, take a tour at 101 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater or call 727-467-6965.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

The Scientology Volunteer Minister (VM) program was launched more than thirty years ago, in response to an appeal by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Noting a tremendous downturn in the level of ethics and morality in society, and a consequent increase in drugs and crime, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.” The program has adopted the slogan: “Something Can Be Done About It”. At the Scientology Volunteer Ministers center in downtown Clearwater, VMs are trained in the 19 chapters of the Scientology Handbook, basic first aid and safety techniques.

Fort Harrison's 7th Annual Chefs Showcase an Evening of Charity for Tampa Bay Children and Reminiscence for Adults

Musical entertainment was also on the menu at the 7th Annual Chefs Showcase on June 2nd at the Fort Harrison, the Church of Scientology’s International Religious Retreat.

When children become unimportant to a society, that society has forfeited its future.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nearly one hundred and twenty foodies gathered to raise funds for local charities while enjoying an epic night at the Church of Scientology’s Fort Harrison religious retreat on June 2nd. The occasion was the 7th Annual Chefs’ Showcase. Featuring a Cinematic theme, the event benefitted the Clearwater Community Volunteers and the Children’s Home Network of Tampa Bay. The event was an evening of entertainment, food and wine overlooking the Clearwater Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. More than $30,000 was raised to help young people and families in need.

Co-sponsored by Tampa Bay Magazine, the event celebrated the art of cinema and focused on creating a happy Hollywood ending for children whose life starts out on a rough note.

“Tonight, we sit right in the middle of one of Pinellas County’s 5 at-risk zones for youth,” said Lisa Mansell, Chairwoman of the event and the Public Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization. “This would not indicate a happy Hollywood ending for anyone, except there are organizations in our area who – like Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother – can effectively do something to change the ending of this script – the Children’s Home Network of Tampa Bay and the Clearwater Community Volunteers.”

The Clearwater Community Volunteers has been providing food, toys and entertainment to Pinellas County families in need since 1992. The Children’s Home Network, established 127 years ago, provides a broad array of services to children. As the event was underwritten by generous sponsors, all of the ticket sales went directly to the charities.

Following introductory speeches came a five course meal prepared by award-winning chefs. Participating chefs included the Fort Harrison Chef (and 2017’s US Best Young Chef winner) Kevin Meier, Chef Bobby Shirley (Clearsky on Cleveland), Chef Rene Marquis (President of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Culinary Federation), Chef Vanessa Marquis (Core Catering), Chef Patrick Artz (Hillsborough County Culinary Instructor) and Chef Bill Brown, owner of William Dean Chocolates, (winner of more than 60 awards internationally for his chocolates). These chefs worked in coordination with the Executive Chef for the Church of Scientology’s operations in Clearwater, Chef Zoltan Vajna.

Each chef was introduced to the assembled guests and then described their course. This was followed by the Fort Harrison’s in-house sommelier describing the wine pairing. The guests were treated to different courses – from an Amuse Bouche inspired by “Alice in Wonderland” to an dessert inspired by “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”.

The courses were augmented by musical numbers performed by the Flag Band with special guests Judy Bechar, Palmer Miray, Carlos Day, Jessy Leros and JoAnn Andrews, with dance performances by Lyla Menkhaus, Mike Foncannon and Chloe Menkhaus.

But the focus of the event was raising funds for at-risk youth and their families.

Ms. Mansell said, “Author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote that ‘When children become unimportant to a society, that society has forfeited its future’. The Clearwater Community Volunteers and Children’s Home Network of Tampa Bay have assisted thousands in need and we are very proud to help these organizations.”

THE FORT HARRISON

The Fort Harrison has served as the International Religious Retreat for the Church of Scientology since 1975. Fully restored in 2009, the Fort Harrison regularly hosts charity events.

TAMPA BAY MAGAZINE

Tampa Bay Magazine has been the go-to magazine for Tampa Bay area residents since 1986. Showcasing all that is good in the area, publishers Aaron Fodiman and Margaret Word Burnside also provide a forum for non-profits to reach the Bay-area residents most likely to support their endeavors.

Dr. Tara King of King of Hearts Counseling Center to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

TaraKing1

TaraKing2 Logo

BRICK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, June 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Tara King Is the founder of King of Hearts Counseling Center, the only Christian Counseling Center in Ocean County. It is dedicated to ‘holy’istic health addressing the emotional, physical, mental, social and spiritual elements of living.

I always approach counseling from a Biblical perspective says Dr. King. Even people who don’t necessarily come to us explicitly for Christian Counseling, they’re still receiving Biblical principles, whether they know it or not. In order to properly heal from our hurts, habits and hang ups, we must explore our spirituality.

King of Hearts Counseling Center offers individual, couple or family counseling through face-to-face, skype or over the phone. Their team of experienced, compassionate, licensed counselors are trained to help clients with all of life’s challenges. Each Counselor has a minimum of a master’s degree in counseling with three years post-master’s counseling experience. With more than 30 years of experience in the mental health and addiction fields, Dr. King oversees all therapists.

Dr. Tara King and her team of counselors work with clients in areas such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, marital conflict, sex/love/relationship addiction, substance abuse, grief, anger management, eating disorders and co-dependency to mention a few.

Dr, King says she is most grateful for accepting Jesus as her Lord and Savior. She also adds that at age 19 she sought counseling for some anger management issues. She returned again at age 24 and through God’s transforming power and therapy she gained victory over homosexuality, co-dependency, alcoholism, anger, depression, anxiety and an eating disorder.

“My life keeps getting better and better every day and I attribute that largely to the work I did in therapy from age 24-33. It was worth every moment to avoid pain and suffering later in life. Because I did the work in my 20’s and early 30’s I avoided a lot of heartache in my latter years.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Tara King in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on June 17th at 11 am EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

David: The King of Jerusalem A Hero for All Ages

Coming Soon!

A Holy Land Experience Premier

Coming to the “All New” Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL, beginning June 18th

Holy Land Experience is an entertaining, inspiring, family-friendly theatrical theme park that ignites the values you believe while providing a full day of adventure, entertainment, and fun.”

— Sherri Patko

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — EDITORS NOTE: PLEASE FIND A PRESS RELEASE (FOR PUBLICATION) FOLLOWED BY A MEDIA ADVISORY (NOT FOR PUBLICATION)

****

David: The King of Jerusalem, an original musical, is coming to the “All New” Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL, beginning June 18th!

Join us as we take you on a journey back in time to the pivotal moments in history that paved the way for a hero after God’s own heart.

Created by internationally recognized directors Robert and Elizabeth Muren, this production brings you the ultimate grace experience.

A combination of a theatrical stage performance and an interactive film backdrop on big screen, the production features all-new, captivating music with lyrics from the Book of Psalms.

It follows the life of David from the time he is a young shepherd boy who is always overlooked by his father and older brothers, to when he becomes the king of Israel, and ultimately to the time he rests with his fathers. In his lonely moments as a shepherd boy, David develops an intimate relationship with God, his unseen Father, with whom he is always seen. His high esteem of this relationship is what causes him to be called a man after God’s own heart.

As king, the adult David enjoys the perks of success and power and doesn’t always heed God’s counsel. Nevertheless, His unseen Father never leaves him. He is with David even through the adulterous act with Bathsheba, the murder of Uriah, and the subsequent tragedies. It is during the tumultuous years of the older David’s reign that he faces an uprising within his own household and is forced to confront his secrets and fears.

As he discovers which of his sons will be his successor, he remembers that man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. The musical reveals a God who doesn’t force His will on any person, a Savior who is full of grace and mercy, and a Father who desires more than anything to have a relationship with His children.

The “All New” Holy Land Experience is a must visit theme park during your Summer adventure in Orlando, FL and is a great destination rain or shine. Guests can enjoy multiple, original musical productions, biblical museum exhibits, restaurants and gift shops throughout the day in our beautiful air-conditioned buildings.

Holy Land Experience is an entertaining, inspiring, family-friendly theatrical theme park that ignites the values you believe in, while providing a full day of adventure, entertainment, and fun. Come, and create great memories that will last a lifetime! Ticketing information for David is available at https://holylandexperience.com/show/david/. The live musical production will run with daily shows until the Christmas Season starts on November 26, 2019.

New Feature Film "One Nation Under God" Receives Thunderous Ovation at Houston's Lakewood Church

L to R: “One Nation Under God” actor Grayson Berry, writer/director Lisa Arnold, Lakewood Church Senior Advisor and ordained minister Jackelyn Viera Iloff

We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film”

— Christian Briggs, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fresh on the heels of the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives’ removal of the words “so help me God” from that institution’s swearing in oath, a new feature film which debates the excision of the words “one nation under God” from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance was screened for an invited audience at Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston on June 7. The audience in the packed theatre responded with thunderous applause as the credits rolled, signaling their overwhelming approval of “One Nation Under God,” which is slated for a year-end wide release.

Lakewood Church, with a membership of more than 18,000, regularly holds Lakewood Movie Night, at which quality family films are screened. In selecting “One Nation Under God” for its most recent screening, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, Senior Advisor and one of the church’s ordained ministers, said, “Our founding fathers placed God at the center of our country, but today, it has become our greatest battle to keep Him there. #ONENATIONUNDERGOD shares the story of a Hispanic student from an immigrant family that boldly steps out to protect his first amendment right in his school and challenges the lead candidate for the Presidency of the United States to do the same. Together, they take a stand for what they believe.”

“We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film.,” said Executive Producer Christian Briggs. “Their tremendous response tells us that this film is a rarity today – a family film about standing up for what is right that is also great entertainment. We are looking forward to bringing ‘One Nation Under God’ to audiences everywhere later this year.”

“One Nation Under God,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr., Casper Van Dien, Lois Robbins, Herschel Walker and Isaak Presley, has received 32 major awards at film festivals over the past year. Underscoring the film’s excellence and relevance among faith and family audiences, it has won top awards at the International Film Festival, God Country Family Film Festival, Christian Film Festival and many others.

Written and directed by Lisa Arnold, who co-produced the hugely successful 2014 “God’s Not Dead”, “One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship when a new student at a Louisiana magnet school questions a policy in which the words “under God” are omitted in daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

About “One Nation Under God”:
When a magnet school teacher in Louisiana (Sorbo) is confronted by a new student (Presley), a young Latino raised by a single mom, who questions the school’s policy toward his First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, the subject becomes the basis of a debate in a juried showdown with a rival school. Casper Van Dien plays the school’s principal who staunchly defends the policy, and Antonio Sabato Jr. plays a senator who has his eye on the White House, yet whose public comments supporting a place for faith in education get him in political hot water. Football legend Herschel Walker plays himself as an alumnus of the school

“One Nation Under God” is a Suretone Pictures/Film Incito co-production. Nick Thurlow, Jordan Schur, Jarred Coates and Lisa Arnold are producers. Christian Briggs, Herschel Walker, David Mitchell and Keith Jensen are executive producers.

New Family Movie About Free Speech Wins 32 Top Film Festival Awards

“One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship”

— Christian Briggs, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Looking towards its release later this year, “One Nation Under God,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr., Casper Van Dien, Lois Robbins, Herschel Walker and Isaak Presley, has received 32 major awards at film festivals over the past year. Underscoring the film’s excellence and relevance among faith and family audiences, it has won top awards at the International Christian Film Festival, God Country Family Film Festival, Christian Film Festival and many others.

Written and directed by Lisa Arnold, who co-produced the hugely successful 2014 “God’s Not Dead”, “One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship when a new student at a Louisiana magnet school questions a policy in which the words “under God” are omitted in daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The United Nations has declared in its Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

“Everywhere we have screened this film, reaction from audiences and festival judges alike has been tremendous,” said Executive Producer Christian Briggs. “Standing ovations have been the norm, telling us that we have a beautifully acted and produced film, and additionally the audience is very passionate about the subject matter of “One Nation Under God.” Free speech is the cornerstone of democracy, and we must hold that right very dear to us.”

Citing the rising demand for and success of family and faith films, Briggs went on to say that the film is expected to open in 200-250 theaters at the outset, then to expand distribution more broadly following that.

When a magnet school teacher in Louisiana (Sorbo) is confronted by a new student (Presley), a young Latino raised by a single mom, who questions the school’s policy toward his First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, the subject becomes the basis of a debate in a juried showdown with a rival school. Casper Van Dien plays the school’s principal who staunchly defends the policy, and Antonio Sabato Jr. plays a senator who has his eye on the White House, yet whose public comments supporting a place for faith in education get him in political hot water. Football legend Herschel Walker plays himself as an alumnus of the school.

Select film festival awards include:

“Best Family Film” – International Film Festival
“Best Film” – God Country Family Christian Film Festival
“Best Writer” – Christian Online Film Festival
“Best Feature” Colorado International Activism Festival
“Best Feature,” “Fan Favorite” – Christian Film Festival
“Best Feature” – Mindfield Film Festival

The public ceremony, witnessed by people of all walks of life and ages, included the laying of wreaths throughout the Memorial as a special prayer was being recited in a symphony of 11 languages: English, Arabic, Armenian, Cebuano Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Pali, Spanish, and Turkish.

The special prayer: "May the light of Justice, Toleration, and Truth conquer the forces of darkness, may brotherly love prevail, and may peace reign among the nations of the earth. This we ask in Thy Holy Name. Amen"

Before closing the ceremony, the Lord's prayer was recited in the ancient Aramaic language.

Also in attendance to pay homage to our two Veterans was Congressman Jamie Raskin of the 8th District of Maryland.

Global search launched for first patient proven spontaneously cured of Alzheimer’s disease, announces Dr. Leslie Norins

Letter from Vatican reports no record of miraculous cures of Alzheimer's

Vatican letter reports no miraculous cures of Alzheimer’s disease

Physicians offered $100,000 reward for submitting the best-proven case of spontaneous cure of Alzheimer's disease

If spontaneous cures of Alzheimer's are only one in a million, and there are 50 million people with that disease, there must be 50 spontaneously cured patients somewhere in the world. Let's find them!”

— Leslie Norins, MD, PhD

NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Has any Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patient ever been proven cured spontaneously of the usually fatal disease, without medical intervention? That’s what Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc., wants to find out. They’re offering a $100,000 reward to the physician who provides the best-proven case. Presently there is no curative for AD, and it is considered 100 percent fatal.

“Researchers can get valuable clues to a disease’s cause and possible therapy from studying even a single spontaneously-cured individual,” says Leslie Norins, M.D., Ph.D., the CEO. “We want to find such an unusual AD patient if one exists, and get the details for scientists to review. Speedier progress against Alzheimer’s is vital.”

“It might have been reported as a miracle. So, we contacted the authorities of the Catholic Church to see if they had records of any miraculous cures of AD,” Dr. Norins says.

The Catholic evaluator and registrar of miracles is the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, part of the Curia at the Holy See, in Rome. “Their letter to me says they know of none,” says Dr. Norins. We also got negative reports from the research librarians at Catholic University of America and the University of Notre Dame.

Next, Dr. Norins says he searched both the medical and lay literature, using both PubMed and Google, and again turned up no spontaneous cures of AD.

So, he says, “We’re creating our own dragnet through this global search. Because physicians are the local professionals best able to diagnose AD and assess a possible spontaneous cure, we are targeting them. We’re asking any doctor who has convincing evidence to submit that case via our website, ALZgerm.org, where they’ll find all the details.”

Dr. Norins cites as inspiration the single patient whose proven cancer spontaneously disappeared, leading Dr. Steven Rosenberg of the National Cancer Institute to begin his productive studies of immunological remedies for cancer. Other single-patient discoveries include the “Philadelphia chromosome” in leukemia, and the “Berlin patient” for white cell resistance to HIV.

Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc. is a self-funded public benefit corporation headquartered in Naples, Florida. It sponsors the $1 Million Challenge Award for the scientist who provides persuasive evidence that AD is caused by an infectious agent.
