"The Secret of Life", Maggie Cole, RScP, 7 pm, July 2

Photo by Sebastian Unrau,

“I believe in a direct communication between the Spirit and the individual - the Universal Spirit personifying itself through each and all; this is a beautiful, a logical and an unavoidable conclusion.”  Ernest Holmes, Can We Talk to God?

In Maggie Cole's experience of being alive on the planet, she has heard this question again and again, “What is the secret of life, the meaning of life?”. Maggie's response is that the secret of life is “communication and timing”. This has been an ongoing discovery. When life reveals itself, it is important to pay attention. God always has something wonderful for us and the art of communing with God, ourselves and each other is an art to be valued and practiced.

Music: Tom McCurry, Maggie's beautiful and talented friend, will inspired us as he communicates with song, story, presence and power. Love it.

The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome.

"Walking Your Talk", Rev. Tara Steele, 7 pm, June 25

In Rev. Tara's words: "Perhaps it's actually about "talking your walk".  I don't know about you but I can spend a fair amount of time second guessing myself, wonder what I'm doing, whether I'm on track, on purpose.  Please join me to see where we are, what our walk looks like, and whether it's something we need to talk about."

The Sunday evening service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome to this informal, interactive time of community spiritual practice and exploration.

"How Much Do Your Values Weigh?", Practitioner Sherry Vierra, 7 pm, June 18

Can our values be the "rock of our salvation" when the wind of change and challenge blows our way?  On Sunday at our evening service, we will explore some ideas on how to stand firm (maybe flapping about a bit) without being "blown away."  We hope you will join us for a conversation about how we might let our values hold us so we don't have to struggle to hold them.

The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome

"What Is Mine?", Maggie Cole, RScP, 7 pm, June 4

By Aaron Burden,

In this year focused on value-based spiritual living, here is the June affirmation: “We account for our activities, disclose them in a transparent manner, and accept responsibility for our actions and the obligations entrusted to us.”

In Maggie Cole's words:  "ACCOUNTABILITY! A powerful value, for me, right up there with integrity. It is a constant in life that we are given the opportunity to choose, to stand for who and what we are and what we do in this life. When we are willing to say YES to what is ours to do, to be accountable and take responsibility for our words, deeds and actions, we align ourselves with the truth of who we are." 

Music: Calvin Johnson blesses us with his presence, his beautiful voice and songs that lift and inspire. Come early and revel in his gifts.

"Is Your Artist in Residence?" Rev. Tara Steele, 7 pm, May 28

This month we've talked about many aspects of creativity.  It is at the heart of who we are and is not defined by artistic ability.  As we bring the conversation to a close, Rev. Tara and musician Jewel Shield offer an opportunity to touch into your inner artist.

With music, with silence, with spoken word and practice, this service will take us within to where our artist always is present.  No special skills or talents are required, simply show up and be present.  The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10; the music will begin a bit earlier.  All are welcome.

"Cultivating Creativity: Letting Go of Comparison", Megan Rooney RScP, 7 pm, Sunday, May 21

The tulip does not turn to the rosebush in the flowerbed next to it and suddenly feel inadequate because of its simple petals and slender stalk. It embraces the creation of beauty that it is and is meant to be.  

We humans tend to fall prey to our comparing mind and judge ourselves for being, having, or expressing as less than, rather than simply embracing the unique creative expression that we are.  Join Practitioner Megan Rooney to explore, embrace and celebrate our Divine creative nature!

The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing.  All are welcome
