I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to prosper in changing times, and how we progress when so many of us are experiencing great uncertainty. And I have, once again, found this beginning of an answer in the teachings of mystical Islam, this time from Bahauddin, the father of Rumi, who says, "Someone asks, Why does God cause one way to prosper and then another? I answer, We cannot know or interfere with that. We know only that there is a path we go on as we say, All praise to God. This is the extent of the planning we do.”

Join us on Sunday as we explore deeper our call to prosper no matter what the circumstances.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

The word “affluence” literally means “plentiful flow.” To feel affluent is to experience good fortune pouring through our lives.

I’ve been thinking about the areas of life in which I feel this sort of abundant flow, and where I’m feeling more of a trickle or even a blockage or stoppage. And I’m considering the ways in which I am perhaps participating in this constriction — by holding too tightly that which I fear to lose, by asking Life to hold me tight to protect me from change, for security’s sake avoiding movement and momentum and aliveness…

But the thing is: Divine Flow requires us to hold & be held through and as transformation, not instead of it.

“Where am I going on this glorious journey? To your house, of course.” — Rumi

We are continuing are series on Brene Brown’s “Braving the Wilderness” this week as we focus on the chapter entitled “Speak Truth to BS. Be Civil.” I’ve often found it difficult to marry these two approaches, yet I am coming to realize that to be most effective, to live in a way where we can “claim and care for one’s [own] identity, needs and beliefs without degrading someone else’s in the process,” we must come into some bravery and belonging so deeply to ourselves that we don’t feel the need to diminish others when we find ourselves in disagreement. We’ll explore more tools to engage in this brave way this week.

I am so enjoying this powerful, challenging and deepening experience of going through the wilderness together with all of you!

Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Service starts at 6:30, Happy Hour starts at 6.

Brave On,
Masando

As aware, sensitive people we will always be impacted by the world around us. It is natural that we will be moved by events, and we must also always remember that we are making an impact as well. In seen and unseen ways, the ways we move transform our collective experience.

Join us on Sunday to explore the impact we can make when we are clear that our lives are a movement of Spirit.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

Whenever we talk about actualizing the life we want or the world we want to live in, the idea that YOU CREATE IT can land a couple of different ways. Sometimes it’s like, “Hooray! I am the author of my own life and I can be, do, and have anything!” Other times it’s more, “What the hell do you mean?! Are you saying I made this mess?”

The distinction might be in whether we’re looking forward or back, or how we hold our freedom and our responsibility. But I think the main difference is how we see ourselves in the equation. Just who do we think we are?

Maybe it’s all a matter of knowing ourselves in a bigger way. If we really got that we were Everything, what might we create?

I can’t wait to see you Saturday at 6:00, with Patty & Sid! Join us at 5:30 for community, snacks, and cheer. XO, Rev. Drew

Last week, we began a series on Brene Brown’s newest book, “Braving the Wilderness.” This week, we’ll be exploring Brown’s ideas on the cause of the polarization and loneliness that is becoming and epidemic in this country and how, by moving closer in, we can help to connect with those that may be difficult to connect with or understand. Brown says, “People are hard to hate close up. Move in.” A challenging, yet powerful statement, and one that I am being deeply inspired and moved by right now.

Looking forward to continuing the journey into the wilderness of life together!
Service starts at 6pm, Happy Hour with snacks and wine starts at 6!

See you on Wednesday,
Masando
