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.

“I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize that I should have been more specific.” ~ Lily Tomlin

One way of experiencing the journey of our lives is as a series of narrowing choices. We get more specific, more “actualized.” As we define ourselves, it can seem as if other ways of being become less likely, maybe even impossible. We trade a wide field of possibility for a specialized focus.

And of course this is one aspect of individuation and self-understanding — distilling and clarifying the unique miracle that each of us is. But I believe the bigger truth involves not just this narrowing, becoming this, but also expanding — becoming All.

The paradox is: at the same time that we're becoming more explicitly specifically ourselves, the more completely we're able to embody the universal expanse of Infinite Possibility. As we define & "narrow" our authentic being, spiritual truth beckons us to include within our identity more and more of Everything!

The more me I become, the more us we get to be, and we all discover how freakin’ gigantic and divine we are, both individually and together. I can’t wait to see you this Sunday, dear friends. Services at 9:15 & 11:00. XO, Rev. Drew

Courage shows up in many ways in our lives. Sometimes it is the courage to stand up for what we believe, to remove ourselves from a situation, to finally say that we’ve had enough. And at other times it is the courage to experience joy, to choose a new experience, or to laugh. All of these outward forms of courage come from a courage in our inner lives. I believe that this inner courage is the art of remembering. Remembering that we are never truly alone…that we are part of All That Is, part of God. Learning to live in the true knowing that we are never alone may be the only spiritual lesson we may ever have to learn.

Join us on Sunday as we explore what it means to step more fully into our courage.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

My 5-year-old niece Isabella couldn’t wait to start Kindergarten this year mainly because she was so excited to make new friends. And over the past 7 months, she’s become kind of an expert on friendship. So when I was thinking about this topic, I called up Isabella for some crackerjack advice.

Here’s what she told me it means to be a friend: to treat each other nicely, to look out for each other, to stand up for each other, and to share.

Sounds simple enough. Now if only all of us grown-ups could do it.

This Saturday will be my 5th Anniversary of doing a weekly talk! I can’t wait to see you at 6:00 for a service of song & celebration with the magnificent Patty Stephens and the extraordinary Sid Fendley. Join us for community & cheer at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
