Evolving Together from Rev. Laura

Evolving Together

To be an inclusive spiritual community where we live and grow together in peace and prosperity, we must learn how to do so in ways that stretch us beyond what we have heretofore known or experienced.

As one in divine presence, we embrace our common humanity. We are held in the loving arms of Spirit, and we rise above fear to walk in love, faith, and peace.

Healing & Opportunity through Loss

Healing and Opportunity through Grief
 
For many, the global pandemic experience is one of loss. Loss of health, loss of loved ones, loss of a way of being and way of life - we are all experiencing loss in some way. If we seek to heal and grow through this process, the first step in that transformation is acknowledgement. Taking the time to fully inhabit this moment, in all its forms, allows space for our next best steps to be discovered with ease and grace.
