We are a community of free thinkers who seek to growing spiritually through discourse and action. We are agnostics, humanists, atheists, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, followers of indigenous, Earth-based, and alternative traditions, and we come together to learn from one another and to enrich our lives with meaning, ethics, and acts of social responsibility.
Come, nurture your spirit through free discourse, song, and meditation or prayer. Offer your children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions. Put your values to work through volunteer opportunities to serve others, advocate for social justice, and care for our beloved planet.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

"The Importance of Being Wrong in Religion and Spirituality”
Being wrong is an inescapable part of being alive. And yet we go through life tacitly assuming (or loudly insisting) that we are right about nearly everything – particularly about religion. The conviction of faith can help us survive in this world but it can also blind us to new understandings and changed circumstances.
A concern with many expressions of religion is what happens when this conviction is shaken, and how we interpret the spiritual significance of being wrong. Is the allure of certainty necessary to faith? Could the necessity of fallibility in life even be a strength in aiding spiritual growth?
