Our Pastors (Bangor, Maine):


“Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.”

~ Deepak Chopra ~

Reverend Elizabeth Simpson, NST

Betty serves as co-pastor of the Harrison D. Barrett Church in Bangor. She was convinced of the continuity of life when her grandmother appeared to her on the night of her passing more than 40 years ago. The continuity of life was again proved to Betty when she had a private reading with the Rev. Florence Scripture about a year after her grandmother’s passing. Always feeling different from others as a child, Betty has found her home in Spiritualism.
