"Across the Interfaith Table 2017", Sunday, August 27, 3:30 to 7:30 pm



Our Sunday evening service on August 27 has expanded to an afternoon and evening celebration of interfaith connection.  From 3:30 to 7:30, there will be workshops, a group program, and a vegetarian potluck.

Learn about Islam, Judaism, Christianity or Sikhism -- or join in Dances of Universal Peace.  After one of these workshops from 3:45 - 4:45, come into the sanctuary for a beautiful program of interfaith prayers, readings and music that begins at 5 pm. Following that group program, there is a vegetarian potluck where you can get to know your neighbors.

Doors open at 3:30 pm for this free event.  Come to one part or all.  If you plan to attend the potluck, please bring a vegetarian dish to share -- free of all meat and alcohol.  And, if possible, bring your own plates and utensils to save on clean up and trash.

All are welcome to this free event, an annual Interfaith Council of Sonoma County gathering.  Have questions? Contact Rev. Tara at tara@cslsr.org or go to Across the Interfaith Table 2017 website

Spirit is always and ever available to us: a guiding light, an infinite source of love, joy, intelligence, wisdom and so much more. It provides us with everything to live a life of love, compassion and caring. The question is, "Am I available to Spirit to garner the gifts that are forever being given?" 

The Sunday evening service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing. Join Practitioner Maggie Cole as she explores who we open to love, compassion and caring in our lives.

Music: Tom McCurry shares his love with us through his presence, his music and his beautiful expression.

This Sunday's service focuses on listening.  In that spirit, Rev. Tara invites you to take some time in the coming week to listen to this simple chant created by Paramahansa Yogananda.  It's on youtube so you may have to skip an ad at the beginning.

Have a listen then come share your experience and hear the experiences of others. Sunday evening service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome.

This Sunday evening, you're invited to get to know others who attend Sunday evening services.  We often are so busy with all that we do that there isn't time to simply sit and listen to each others' stories and experiences.  We will have some time to sit in prayer and in silence -- most of our time together will be deliciously simple, being in community, sharing a bit of who we are.

We gather at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome.

PS:  If you would like to bring some home made cookies to share, please do.
