So much of what we spend our time with is talking about what isn’t working, but what if we instead put our attention on building the new thing that will work. This is where my attention has been drawn, and I invite you to join us as we focus on building up what we want to create instead of tearing down what we don’t like.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

I’ve been thinking about the word CAREFUL. It’s pretty clear that, literally, the word means “full of care.” But in practical usage, often it tends to be more like a warning to to beware, to be cautious, to not get too close — which sounds to me a lot like the antithesis of care.

Likewise, the word CAREFREE means “free of care,” and implies a buoyant and happy spirit. But I’d like to suggest that true freedom, ultimately, is available not in having less to care about, but actually through the experience of caring more and more deeply for each other.

I want to turn these words back on their heads. I reclaim CARE-FULLNESS as something that invites joyous abandon and hearty empathy. I reclaim CARE-FREEDOM as the grace and ease and liberty that happens when we allow ourselves to love without inhibition.

I can’t wait to see you this Saturday for our celebration service at 6:00! Please join us at 5:30 for wine & snacks. XO, Rev. Drew

Sometimes, hearing the phrase “Just be yourself” can be confusing and confronting. I often react with the question, “How am I not myself?” And it’s that question that really helps me distill how I am showing up in the world, how I might be falling into behaviors that are motivated by pleasing or gaining the approval of others, and how I might let some of those behaviors go so that an authentic and integrous self can more brightly shine through.

We’ll see you and your beautiful selves on Wednesday Night! Service starts at 6:30, happy hour starts at 6:00.

Thich Nhat Hanh, in his book Peace Begins Here, says "The peace process, the road map to peace, does not come from the government. It comes from your own heart and from your beloved, and then the two of you can form a multitude. If there are enough of you who know how to handle fear and anger, and how to calm yourselves, then you can organize a people's peace conference. You don't need your government to do it. Your government has tried very hard in the past and has not succeeded. They don't really know the peace process or the road map to peace. They talk about it in terms of politics but they don't know how to think in terms of human beings.”

And so here we go. We are organizing. We don’t need anyone else to do this. We are the people. Let’s get mobilized.

Join us on Sunday to explore both the inner and outer aspects of what it means to get organized.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

“No cheap moralizing, no bullsh*t, nothing phoney, no lies, no beating around the bush, no salestalk, just straight information you can trust.” — The Diggers, from a flyer offering street survival classes for newcomers to Haight-Ashbury, 1967

This week, I got to attend a powerful exhibit of music, art, and culture celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in San Francisco — a vision of peace, love, freedom, and harmony as relevant today as it was half a century ago.

Let’s get together and love one another right now. Can’t wait to see you Saturday. Service at 6:00, wine & community at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
