September 4th – Communion – Jeremiah 18:1-11


Imagine yourself being shaped by the Beloved into the best possible human being!!!  How are you shaping up to be the spiritual image God intended?  Work with God to help shape the broken pieces of our world into a beautiful mosaic of loving possibilities!  Help address the atrocities of our current age . . . and bring to completion what God envisioned for the world . . .

September 11th – Luke 15:1-10

Imagine being able to reimage the world after ‘The Fall’ (i.e. 911).  How might you be imaging the world since that time?  How are you being the change you desire to experience in the world?  Are you finding joy by sweeping away the destructive nature of our current world evils . . . and finding your passion for the lost and broken realities we are living?  Join with others to creation a celebrate of a world restored!


September 18th – Luke 16:1-13


Imagine yourself as one of the characters in this parable.  Remember that each character, like us, has a redeeming side and a shadow side!  Do you find yourself serving two masters . . . and who are they?  What are the changes you are willing to make to become “spiritually solid” . . . and how will you help make the necessary changes in our world that will welcome grace?   

September 25th – Luke 16:19-31

Imagine yourself once again as a character in this parable.  Whom do you identify most?  Are you leading with your spiritual senses, and practicing your faith from the very depths of your soul?  Are you working to have your ego be ‘less onery’, and allowing your spiritual light to shine?  Practice peace.

Elephant and Friend

May we find the welcoming place of God as we invite others to share in this journey of the Spirit!
