We are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

But, we all know the moments: the sound of music, a newborn, a mountain view. We weep with joy and have a firsthand, unqualified, unfiltered experience of the sacred and the holy... Seek these encounters with the holy. In other words,

Prayer is this month's theme. We will explore what prayer is and we will make prayer ribbons to put down our non-denominational prayer request: " May we find a way to __" (for example, "house the homeless"). The wall hangings will be small watercolors in square formats. joined vertically with ribbons, then hung from a rod.
