Sometimes it feels like life is just getting old. This is not about age or aging, but instead about living in the same stories, memories, and patterns that keep us stuck. There is some point where we just have to declare that we are willing to do whatever we can do to finally do things differently.

Join us on Sunday to explore how we can break free from the patterns that have been keeping us from really creating the world we want to be living in.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

“Live your questions now, and perhaps without even knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answer.” — Rainer Maria Rilke

Usually we ask questions because we want an answer. The question is just a tool, like a crow bar we’re using to pry open the mystery of life, to find some definitive inside.

And of course there’s a place for answers — they can be very very useful. But there’s also great power in questions for questions’ sake. Just asking — not because it’s the best way for us to achieve surety, but because of what might be possible in the wide open space of inquiry. Just asking and staying in the ask because of who we get to be and how the world exists when it’s all maybe.

I can’t wait to see you Saturday at 6:00 pm for our service of song & celebration! Join us at 5:30 for wine, community, and cheer. XO, Rev. Drew

Trusting the process is often easier to say than to do. In the middle of a process that is long, difficult, or uncomfortable, it is often difficult to have faith that everything is going exactly as it should. Faith, though not something we either have or don't have, instead is an inner quality that unfolds as we learn to trust our own deepest experience.

Everything in your life is working for your wholeness — you just have to let it. Join us on Sunday to let it.

With Great Love,

I recently learned the term thirsty to describe someone being pushy, annoyingly eager — especially a person who will not take “no” when he’s trying to sell you something or when she’s trying to win you over to an idea.

It’s got me thinking about how sometimes our enthusiasm, passion, drive, and even need can light up a space and fill it with energy, inspiring ourselves and others to greatness. But at other times, this thirst can suck the juice right out of everything and everyone around us. What’s the difference?

We’re all thirsty. Our hearts all long for a deeper and deeper drink of Life. But we can feel perpetually parched if we try to quench our thirst with anything less than the Love of the Infinite.

I can’t wait to see you this Saturday for our celebration service at 6:00, with the splendiferous Patty Stephens & Sid Fendley. Join us at 5:30 for wine & cheer. XO, Rev. Drew

We were sent here by the infinite love of the infinite, which is our original blessing. It is our work to remember this truth, and then to continue to create an internal environment where we are making ourselves available to giving and receiving the blessing that we have been given and that we are.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

I Got Kin
by Hafiz
Plant
So that your own heart
Will grow.
Love
So God will think,
“Ahhhhhh,
I got kin in that body!
I should start inviting that soul over
For coffee and
Rolls.”
Sing
Because this is a food
Our starving world
Needs.
Laugh
Because that is the purest
Sound.

Joseph Campbell’s famous words are often offered as advice to those in search of purpose and fulfillment in life: “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” People tend to read this as a promise that if one just does what she or he loves, then everything will fall into place. This is probably a great practice for setting priorities and goals — but I think it’s a mistake to equate goals with purpose.

Goals are beacons we project into the future, carrots on a stick forever inviting us onward and upward. Purpose, on the other hand, must exist in the present if it is to exist at all. Likewise, bliss.

Following our bliss isn’t about chasing after something that we might experience if we can discover it, get it right, and capture it. No, my loves! Our bliss, our purpose, our fulfillment, indeed the very meaning of our lives is forever within us, here and now. It’s a matter of our engagement with and our commitment to anything and everything we are doing and being. Instead of pursuing purpose in the prospect of being blissed-out, we would do better to practice blissing-in.

I can't wait to see you this Saturday. Service of song and celebration at 6:00 pm with the superlative Sid Fendley. Wine & cheese at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew

Now more than ever, with everything going on in my/the world, I have found myself being required to be both incredibly open, and at the same time incredibly focused.

Join us on Sunday to explore how we can be both of these seeming opposites at the same time.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner
