I have been known to be skeptical of prescriptions and step-by-step instructions to our Spiritual lives, but I came across a way of explaining the process of unlearning all the rubbish we have accumulated over time, a way of really breaking free that is so compelling that I can’t help but share it with you. Join us on Sunday as we take a collective step of boundless freedom.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

"Understand the obstructions you are putting in the way of love, freedom, and happiness and they will drop. Turn on the light of awareness and the darkness will disappear. Happiness is not something you acquire; love is not something you produce; love is not something you have; love is something that has you." ~ Anthony de Mello

At the beginning of this year, I declared that I was giving up comparison. I was just going to be done with it — done comparing myself to others, done judging the way things are against the way I think they should be, done pitting my ideals against my experiences.

We’re now half-way through the year, and I find that I’m not nearly as done as I thought I could be. (I'm comparing how not-done I am with how done I think I ought to be. Imagine that). So now I’m wondering if maybe comparison is just part of the whole gig, the total shebang. Perhaps I can hold it differently, however.

Maybe comparisons between this and otherwise can be not complaints but rather openings to possibility…

I can’t wait to see you Saturday for our celebration service at 6:00, with the incomparable Karl Richardson. Join us for social time at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew

Hot

Rev. Kylie Renner

I hate to complain about the heat, because I LOVE summer, but I have had a few moments recently where I have said, “It’s so hot I can’t even think anymore.” On further reflection, that may not be such a bad thing. I MAY overthink things, and I don’t think I am the only one, so join us on Sunday as we move into the space of trust that doesn’t require us to work so hard.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

“The only way to make sense of our change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” - Alan Watts

I’ve often thought of Life as an Art, each life a masterpiece performance. This metaphor has led me into an exploration of the ever-shifting relationship between artwork and audience — the fleeting moving experiential impermanence of our lives, and the fact that we exist fully only in relationship, and the soulful truth that is born of our vulnerability.

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

Father’s day is another one of those holidays that brings up all of our cultural stereotypes about what it is to be a father (for example fishing, golfing, tools, bbq, and ties). So many of them don’t fit most of the beautiful, brave men in my life, but I notice that sometimes we all just need to be given an extra bit of permission to be unapologetic about the particular way we show up.

Join us on Sunday to allow ourselves to be brave, be bold and be our own kind of beautiful.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

One of the ways we make sense of things, striving to know the world as a place of meaning and order, is through ideas of Justice — right and wrong, reward and punishment, behavior and consequence. Sometimes this gets expressed as Karma; we reap what we sow, what goes around comes around, for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction.

This concept can be super-satisfying, but it’s also a double-edged sword. Because when rough things happen in life, does that mean we somehow “earned” it, or “deserved” it, or “created” it. I don’t believe so. I don't believe that this is a powerful way to hold our innate creativity.

What I believe is that life can be an experience of unequivocal Good. We can interrupt the chain of action and reaction at any point. We’ve already earned limitless Joy & Peace & Plenty & Love — NO MATTER WHAT.

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

“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.” - Mahatma Gandhi

Sometimes there are days that I’m really ready to leave behind, one’s that have left me feeling drained or upset or just flat-out crappy. And while there can be times when a bad day can even turn into a bad week, I’m always heartened to know that at the end of the day, there is always a new one waiting to be created anew. I often forget, that it’s not just every day, but every moment I have this amazing opportunity, this inborn gift, to create something new and become renewed in the process. I ask myself, why not today?

Looking forward to joining you on this Wednesday on the LONGEST day of the year! Service start at 6:30, Happy Hour with wine, snacks beverages (and refrigerated air) starts at 6!

All the Best,
Masando
