I found myself declaring recently, “I have absolutely no idea what is going on.” While terrifying, I have noticed that the space of not knowing is always where a deeper knowing comes from.
Join us on Sunday as we explore the pathway between no idea and new idea.
With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner
“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
- Albert Einstein
Here’s a common conversation: “How are you? I’m okay. How about you? I’m okay too.” We say this or something like it a dozen times most days.
It struck me recently that when I say “I’m okay” I’m often expressing a rather lackluster feeling. Just okay, fine, adequate, whatever… Like, it’s not bad to be okay, but it’s hardly spectacular. And if things were different I’d probably choose something other than merely okay.
But I suspect I’m missing out on something powerful when I do “okay” this way. I believe that there can be something rich and strong in straightforward “okay-ness.” Being okay is the very essence of integrity and wholeness. Being okay can reflect a deep awareness of our own rightness with the world. And this is a well-grounded place from which to move into everything else we wish to create and experience — everything including the spectacular, the transformational, the transcendent and inspiring.
I can't wait to see you — to be okay together — this Saturday at 6:00 pm, with my spectacular friends Patty & Sid. Join us at 5:30 for wine, community, and cheer. XO, Rev. Drew
Mid-week reconnection, recharge, and deepening. Every Wednesday at 6:30 pm. This week, with Rev. Kylie Renner.
Workshop with Jane Midgley, Ministerial Intern.

When the divine was putting out applications for your job here on earth, the qualification that got your spirit the job in your body was that you would love in a way that no one in the history of the universe has ever loved. So, if even for a moment you have forgotten this, I invite you to join me on Sunday to remember and remind one another of what we are really here to do.
With great love,
Rev. Kylie Renner
"The only reason there is for living is love. There is no other reason for staying on earth."
— Joel Goldsmith
Love stretches us. The more we allow ourselves to feel it, receive it, express it, and share it, the greater our capacity for more of it. I'm not just being romantic — I think this is really the way it works.
I was pondering such deep thoughts recently when I heard someone describe their heart as “full of love.”
I’ve certainly used this phrase before, and I totally understand feeling so full of a feeling I could burst. But the phrase “full of love” landed for me as something of a misnomer. Because Love forever expands us, it doesn’t seem possible to ever get one’s fill of it — there’s always room for more. Right?
The question isn’t how to get full, but rather where do we let our never-fullness carry us? It’s not about sating desire once and for all, but rather allowing our yearning to lead us full-throttle, full-out, full-fledged, full-speed into glorious uncharted territories — BEING and BRINGING more than we ever thought possible.
I can’t wait to see you at our service of Song & Celebration this Saturday at 6:00 pm. Join us at 5:30 for wine, community, & cheer. XO, Rev. Drew
I don’t know about you, but by the time Wednesday rolls around, I’m often in need of some reconnection and remembrance.
Each Wednesday evening we’ll be taking a deeper dive into Sunday’s talk and explore ways to powerfully apply the message in our own hearts and lives. Even if you miss church on Sunday, join us as we come together for community, connection, inspiration and practical application.
With Rev. Masando Hiraoka
There is a deep knowing that sits at the center of who and what we are. When we access and remember this knowing we feel connected to all that is. And then we want to explain it, make it make sense, find words to describe this knowing and we inevitably fall short. In fact, when we try to explain our knowing, we block our ability to actually experience the fullness of remembering who we truly are.
Join us on Sunday to get clear about what you are faithful to, and put your faith into action.
With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
I know that a lot of us feel like we’re running on fumes lately. And we’ve had to dig deep to tap a source of continuing strength and faith. We’ve got to plug in to a sustainable vitality to keep on keeping on.
The phrase “consider the source” keeps occurring to me this week. Usually, this idea is offered as a wry justification to dismiss or disregard information that has come our way — as in: consider the source before you pay any heed to that crazy hater’s Facebook comments. On one hand, this is sound advice. On the other hand, can there ever really be any source other than the One Source?
If we practice remembering that everything is an expression of the Divine, perhaps it is possible to relate to it ALL as a potential source of energy, love, and nourishment. Maybe sustainable energy is not just about digging deep wells, but also about tilling broad fields.
I can’t wait to see you Saturday at 6:00 pm. Join us for wine, community, and cheer at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
