Church Of Pomona
Here at THE CHURCH OF POMONA our ministry centers provide individualized faith counseling to members in conjunction with Q’Aneh-Bosm and its herbal components, the sacrament used by THE CHURCH OF POMONA members. For many years, Q’Aneh-Bosm, our central sacrament, has been used in religious rituals and for healing. For the members of PCH, the components and oil of Q’Aneh-Bosm are our only sacred sacrament and are essential under the central tenets of our church. Unlike majority religions, our beliefs are not rigid and dogmatic. Rather, we believe in the importance of nature, freedom and individual thought. Members receive sacrament through either Q’Aneh-Bosm Ministries, one- on-one spiritual journeys or church Worship and Sacrament Preparation Sites. Natural Healing beliefs can be traced back thousands of years. “Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant.” (Genesis 9:3). Our beliefs emphasize natural healing as it was used in ancient times and described throughout the Bible. “In the middle of its street on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22:2). Our ministry emphasizes how the leaves of the tree and the green plant extend the spiritual viability of humanity. Our ministry centers focus on individualized ministry and sacrament provision to members with an emphasis on our core beliefs in “nonaction” emptiness, detachment and the strength of softness and flexibility. In 1967, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan noted, in respect to the holy Q’Aneh-Bosm, that based on cognate pronunciation and Septuagint readings, Q’Aneh-Bosm identifies with the English and Greek definitions of hemp. For our members, it is our sacrament that is most vital to the extension of our spiritual being. Along with individualized ministry, it is not only the healing power of our sacrament, but the spiritual closeness provided through it and our ministry that are central to our core beliefs and in living spiritually while on Earth.
