Golden Gate Spiritualist Church of San Francisco

A preeminent Spiritualist center serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1924. Offering peace, centering, healing, education and classes. Spiritualism is a religion, science and philosophy - focusing on joy, harmony, and a fear-free understanding of Eternal Life.

The Definition of A Spiritualist
One who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in Eternal Life and in individual responsibility. Some, but not all, Spiritualists are Mediums and/or Healers. Spiritualists endeavor to find the truth in all things and to live their lives in accordance therewith.

1848 Victorian Séance Fundraiser for Hydesville 03/21/2021

1848 Victorian Séance Fundraiser for Hydesville

Here’s a fun fundraiser event by NSAC:

“Join Mediums for a Victorian Style virtual séance. We will learn about the history of Spiritual Seances held in 1848 before being randomly placed in a breakout room of sitters and one medium. Each medium will demonstrate the continuity of life by means of mediumship. Each sitter will receive a message and guidance from loved ones, guides, and teachers in Spirit who love us.”

This is a fundraiser for the FOX COTTAGE PRESERVATION FUND.

It's been five years since the sudden passing Michael Joe Eakin, longtime church member, dear friend, and gifted Spiritualist Medium and evidential healer. While we are missing his physical presence, his boyish grin and ready giggle, the way his energy could uplift an entire room, this we Know -- Michael is continuing the good work, in the higher spheres and realms, continuing his investigations, without limitation! Blessed Be, brother Michael!

Thoughts of Rev. James Ehrhart on the anniversary of his passing one year ago, January 3, 2020. What would Jim have said about this past year of the pandemic, lessons to discern, still to learn? Always the teacher, his enduring gift to Spiritualism, "the religion of happiness"...
Peace brother Jim.

James Stewart Ehrhart
November 6, 1937—January 3, 2020

It is with profound sadness that I inform you that the Reverend James Stewart Ehrhart passed to Spirit on Friday evening, January 3. Jim's physical death was unexpected and was quick.

It has been said that one of the rewards of a good life is a quick death, and I believe that is certainly manifest in this instance.

Reverend Ehrhart was a significant part of the heart and soul of our Church, and he will be missed.

At Reverend Ehrhart's request, there will be no formal religious or memorial service.

Please join me in sending light and strength to Jim to smooth his transition to Spirit and speed his journey home.

God bless,

Michael D. Franklin, President
