We journey through life in a physical form. We engage the world through the five senses. Our place in the human community is occupied by flesh and bones. Our life begins with a body. So what do we hold with us in these bodies– these structures of the human being? What heritage, expectation, ability, divergence, beauty, strength, weakness, do we know in ourselves, or do others believe about us? Join us to ponder the meaning of being human in a body.

Empowering the Mind

Sunday May 14, 2017 10:45am – Mother’s Day

The evidence of the power of our minds is undeniable. When we understand our mind, we begin to re-shape our behavior and feelings about so many things… it’s the most loving act of service one can do for themselves and the world. Our guest speaker is Bhante Sujatha, the abbot of the Blue Lotus Temple in Woodstock, and he joins us to celebrate 15 years of friendship with our congregation. Bhante teaches loving-kindness meditation to people around the globe for all those seeking the art of happiness and contentment.
