SUNDAY SERVICES NOW MASK RECOMMENDED BUT OPTIONAL

Starting Sunday, April 3, 2022

We have been tracking the numbers regarding Covid-19 cases in our area, and the numbers remain very low. Therefore, we will be inviting people to use their own discretion as far as wearing a mask when in attendance at Sunday Services and other events at the Center. We still recommend wearing a mask and will have them on hand; and, of course, will continue to offer our live streaming of the Services as well.

At the moment, we do not have nursery or children’s programs up and running but hope to have those in place in the near future!

Hope to see you there!

Minister’s Message for May: Contemplation and Action

“Action is the stream, and contemplation is the spring.” ~ Thomas Merton

This month Rev. Zina and I will be talking about how to become socially engaged in the world while using spiritual practice to ground into vision, intention and clarity of purpose. This is the “Middle Way” of the Buddhists, the meaning of “all the way to heaven, is heaven” of St. Catherine of Siena and the understanding of “Tikkun Olam” in Reform Judaism. How we apply, to our daily lives and concerns, the insight gained from contemplative practices is the essence of walking a spiritual path.

As Thomas Merton famously said, “There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence. The frenzy of our activism neutralizes our work for peace. It destroys our own inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”

We will be speaking on Sundays of building capacity so that the call of our work for the world can be offered from a peaceful heart and balanced mind. And we will be looking specifically about how to do this as individuals, parents, householders and leaders.
