In the Universal Worship, we turn toward the source of all spiritual revelation and let it shine into ourselves, our communities, and our world. Honoring all the wisdom traditions of humanity equally, we join in an ongoing cosmic celebration with all of creation, from the mineral to the angelic.
The Universal Worship recognizes that all religions originate in the same Truth. All of the great teachers and prophets have reflected this truth to humanity in their own way. The same power that inspired them continues to move through and guide our own lives. Read more here.
Messages, Music, Readings and Ritual for our Universal Worship services in 2016 will be focused upon the spiritual discernment of the year, Spiritual Permaculture: Coming into Deeper Relationship with Earth. Read more here.

Sunday April 24th: InterSpiritual Worship with Rev. Karen Lindquist.
Our spiritual discernment for the month of April — as part of our year long exploration of Spiritual Permaculture: Coming into Deeper Relationship with Earth, — is “Apply Self-Regulation and Accept Feedback.”
For this exploration we turn to mindfulness practices to help us in our understanding of our responsibility, both in giving and receiving feedback.
♥ To learn to speak mindfully is to learn to consider what I am about to say even before I say it. ♥ When I speak mindfully, I place a pause before each sentence. ♥ This pause gives me time to make important choices. ♥ I will decide the content of what I am about to say. ♥ I will decide the tone of my words. ♥ I will choose how calmly and clearly I say my words…
We will also explore self-regulation and self-improvement as the most important, transformational, and foundational practices of all authentic spiritual paths.
Our fifth Sunday worship services in 2016 will be co-created with Associate Ministers Sibyl Lundy, Linda Stern and David Heitmiller.
Dates in 2016:
