Hello and welcome! Abundant Life Spiritual Center is a dynamic spiritual community with a focus on awakening those who walk through our doors to the divine within and inspiring them to live confidently, passionately and powerfully. Together we learn how to Live Fearlessly and Love Outrageously because life is meant to be filled with joy and lived with ease as a positive experience, not a struggle. We named ourselves Abundant Life because we know that the Abundant Life - a life of wholeness and authentic self-expression, purpose, creativity and love - is the divine birthright of everyone and we want to support your living it.
You will find yourself among like-minded people if:
So you want to live a prosperous life. We want that for you too! But what does prosperity have to do with the Ten Commandments? Just the term, “The Ten Commandments,” causes many of us to squirm. Some people feel they are antiquated, not relevant to today’s world. Others report that they feel the Ten Commandments provoke that awful feeling from childhood that God is scary.
We began this series in late February and interrupted it for a series of Easter lessons in late March. Rev. Carol will complete the series on Sundays, April 27 and May 4. You will experience the Ten Commandments like never before, for they hold underlying spiritual truths which show you how to live a prosperous life.
Recently Rev. Carol Saunders was a guest on cable TV show, Inner Quest, produced by Infinity Foundation. During the interview, Rev. Carol provides a glimpse into who she is personally and shares what Abundant Life Spiritual Center is all about. She discusses her passions, insights and her experience teaching Radical Forgiveness. The interview will be aired on cable channel 19 and 35 in late April and early May and can be viewed on YouTube here.

Mother’s Day is a day for all of us. During our special Mother’s Day Sunday service on May 11, we will celebrate our own mothers as well as the universal mothering principle that exists within all of us. Our mothers evoke a range of emotions and we want to honor everyone’s experience. As children, some of us experienced mom as nurturing and supportive. Others experienced neglect or even abuse. In all cases, we learned something from our mothers that we carry into our lives.
We are proud of our music. What’s different about us is we use contemporary and classic pop/rock/indie music to support our spiritual themes. We capture spiritual truths through artists such as The Beatles, Coldplay, 10,000 Maniacs, The Cranberries, Pharrell Williams, Dave Matthews Band, Kelly Clarkson, Eisley, Snow Patrol, Phillip Phillips, Enya, Styx, David Bowie and countless others. Matt Nelson, who shares his delightfully positive energy and phenomenal keyboard talent with us each week, leads our band. He is well-connected into the Chicago music scene and brings to us talent such as Grammy-nominated Matthew Santos.
