What is Spiritualism?  NSAC Definitions:
Infinite Intelligence pervades and controls the universe, is without shape or form and is impersonal, omnipresent and omnipotent.

Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those in the Spirit World.

Spiritualism is a Science because it investigates, analyzes and classifies facts and manifestations demonstrated from the spirit side of life.

Spiritualism is a Philosophy because it studies the Laws of Nature both on the seen and unseen sides of life and bases its conclusions upon present observed facts. It accepts statements of observed facts of past ages and conclusions drawn therefrom, when sustained by reason and results of observed facts of the present day.

Spiritualism is a Religion because it strives to understand and to comply with the Physical, Mental and Spiritual Laws of Nature, which are the laws of God.

News Update from the Lily Dale Assembly, Inc.
Board of Directors dated March 22, 2020
 
We hope this finds you both safe and healthy.

Because of the world coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, yesterday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses to close their physical locations. The Lily Dale Assembly is complying as are others in our state.  We will continue to have all churches, the Healing Temple services, businesses, and activities postponed until further notice.  Please see their websites for more information as some have opted to use social media for services. 
 
We wanted you to also be aware that this coincided with our Lily Dale Summer Catalog going to print.  Because of this, there will not be a hard copy catalog.  We are working diligently to get our catalog on our website this coming week.  We appreciate your patience as we are trying to do this as quickly as possible. 
 
We also continue to do everything we can to help keep our community safe.  Our maintenance staff have cleaned, disinfected and sanitized all of our main buildings.  They have also secured the buildings so that there is no contamination of the buildings. 
 
Although, to date, we have had no incidents of COVID-19 among our community, out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you continue to follow the recommendations from the CDC with guidelines of hand washing, sanitizing, “social distancing” and any travel.  There have been devastating affects globally and we need to do our part in keeping both ourselves and others safe.  
 
We will continue to evaluate the situation very closely and keep you updated.  These are unprecedented times globally for everyone. As Spiritualists, we ask that we all support not only our own community but our world community. Offering our support through prayer and meditation may be the greatest gifts we can give another at this time.  As we do this, we ask that the world begin to heal in the process. 

We are “Lily Dale Strong” and we sincerely thank you for your continued support.
