Marble Collegiate Church. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2012 v6n1 0814

This Sunday I stayed in Manhattan to  re-connect with Norman Vincent Peale's teaching of the power of positive thinking click here. Pain does not go away because we think positive thoughts, oh no, that is not his message.

His message is that if we see only victory, and work towards it, we shall be victorious.

Jealousy, pride, lack of accountability, lack of trust, thieving: these are all negative and will make us fall.

The Power of Positive Thinking
Listen to talks about positive thinking from Pastor Norman Vincent Peale, who ran his ministry from the Marble Collegiate Church, above. More, click here.

Picture above, the Marble Collegiate Church on 5th Avenue in Manhattan. I took this picture at about 3am Saturday morning. New York is always busy, the city that never sleeps, and the church is always open.


Marble Collegiate Church was the church of the late pastor Norman Vincent Peale, who articulated the concept of positive thinking. I wanted to find out more about the church, so I took pictures when I was visiting the 5th Avenue office of the printing company associated with MJoTA, click here.

I was so excited at finding the church and seeing the ongoing testimony of peace that I stayed over in Manhattan from Friday to Sunday, so I could worship at the church on Sunday. I got through physical chemistry and organic chemistry in 1971 by applying the principles of positive thinking, and have lived my life since then according to the knowledge that I have the power to succeed. What I did in 1971 was tell myself I loved, adored chemistry and every time I read a page, listened to a lecture, went into the lab, I was having a blast, and I was exactly where I wanted to be. It worked. And applied the same principle to physiology when I was in danger of failing the next year. I got my PhD in Physiology at 26.

What is their peace testimony? That was the first thing I saw, anyone sees, when walking past the church. Yellow ribbons tied to the black wrought iron fence. Each ribbon has the name of every member of the armed forces that was killed in conflict zones in the past week. Look carefully at the bottom of the picture, you can see them.

Picture left, statue of Norman Vincent Peale looks out onto 5th Avenue in Manhattan, over the fence on which the congregation hangs a yellow ribbon each Sunday. The ribbon includes a separate tag for each member of the armed forces that were killed in conflict that week.

Pictures below, taken inside and outside the church, during the televised talkback after the church service, and the coffee hour. The 2 ladies were welcoming vistors, one is a daughter of Haiti, the other is a daughter of Africa married to a son of Nigeria.
