It is really all connected. We are in the beginning of a huge remodel project at home and I keep finding it amazing that every single thing we decide effects everything else we are doing. This is a powerful remembrance that we will explore on Sunday. Join us.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

Change one thing, change Everything.

You know how sometimes you’re swinging along having huge breakthroughs and epiphanies and it seems like barriers are tumbling down and life is opening up, but then… you take one swing too many and whatever you just crashed through leaves you choking on a cloud of construction debris, and you realize that you might have needed that wall, that that was in fact a load-bearing wall? Oops. Me too.

It’s tempting to get down on ourselves when this happens. Truth is, though, these are still always breakthroughs, even if they might feel like breakdowns sometimes. And we’re strong enough now to handle the really fundamental structural stuff!

I can’t wait to see you for our service of song & celebration this Saturday, July 8, at 6:00 pm. With my incomparable friends Patty Stephens & Sid Fendley. Join us at 5:30 for wine, snacks, and community! XO, Rev. Drew

“Everything can be reconciled into one thing: something infinite, eternal, ever fully present and creative, and utterly begging of description, so that all we have left to call it is God.” - Ernest Holmes

So much of my life has been an ever-evolving inquiry into this something… this subtle energy of life that shows itself through the beauty of the natural world, and is experienced within as a sense of wonder, or connection or expansion or laughter or creativity… and has even made itself known in grief and heartache and dark nights of the soul. It’s this deeply intimate thing and at the same time totally incomprehensible in its vastness. Yet I yearn for it, to see it, to feel it, to know it.

This something that stirs within me, it’s essential.

We’ll dive into this great something at Wednesday Evening Service this week. Happy Hour starts at 6, service starts at 6:30.

See You There,
Masando

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
