We’ll talk about what it means to be resilient, to “practice the presence” or bring spirituality into our everyday life. We are not bodies with souls but souls with bodies!

FlowerPlease join us this Thursday, April 13 @ 7 p.m. for Community Visioning by phone!

This Sunday our ENCOURAGEMENT will be by Reverend Dr. Raymont Anderson. His topic is CHANGE. In his words:

You have changed and that change may have begun with a realization that you had been transferring, judging, blaming and having realized this you stepped into a transcendence of your experiences of pain and suffering as you eventually forgave, released, and transformed your life into a new conscious creation. This new level gave way to a transmogrification in which you may not have even realized the depth of your metamorphosis; it is here that you begin to experience Samadhi, that level of transfiguration that Moses and Yeshua demonstrated!

Yes you have changed . . . but who is the “you” that has changed?

Our music will be by Jen Patience Rowe.

HIGH NOTES with LEA: Innie or Outie?

Innie or Outie… not that 🙂

Yesterday, Rev Alex spoke about Belonging and Becoming. She asked each of us whether we are introverts or extroverts by nature. As she pointed out, there are elements of both in all of us. One part always looks within to become more of what Spirit calls us to be. The other part of us reaches out to share, acknowledge, enjoy and learn from our unity with the rest of Life.

Here is a recording of one of the songs I shared during the service. The other was a chant called “Greater Good of All” by David Roth. Everyone sang beautifully! Check out the CSL-DC FB page for a taste (captured by Dianne 🙂

See you all again on November 27, if not before.  Have a creepy Halloween and a warm Thanksgiving.
