Extinguishing the Chalice                                                    
     We extinguish this flame but not the light of truth,
    the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment.
   These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.

“Corrente” from Partita V
J. S. Bach

"Healing the Earth by Living Our Values"

By putting our values into practice, every day in every way, we have it within our power to make a difference.
We can address the climate challenges we face; we can dismantle racism; we can alleviate hunger.
We can make the world a better place.  Together.

"Healing Childhood Wounds"

No one escapes childhood without wounds. As children, we had little say over how we were treated, but as adults, we can decide how much say our past may have in our present. We'll consider some practical things we can do to facilitate our healing of old wounds.


 
Upcoming 2021 Monthly Themes:
July - Becoming
August - Story
September - Perseverance / Persistence
October - Reconciliation / Restoration
November - Trust
December - Values

 
Our Weekly Contemplative Meditation
