Honoring the Guest ~ Interfaith Worship Series
Exploring Diverse Faith and Spiritual Traditions
We welcome Moss Magill and Rich Ater with The Circle of Coll
Please join local Druidic group Circle of Coll for a celebration of the Light as it penetrates and illuminates the Darkness.
Circle members Rich Ater and Moss Magill will lead us on a ceremonial journey through the ancient Irish saga The Battle of Moytura (Caith Maige Tuired) to honor the Celtic sun god Lugh and the mysterious Morrigan goddess who, in this legend, overcome the dark ruler Bres. In the legend, newly appointed Bres is found to be unfit as the king who has plunged his kingdom into sudden worry and despair.
Through interactive ritual, we will learn about how the brighter forces of Lugh and the motivational spirit of the Morrigan can be harnessed to seek out, examine and make use of the Darkness, helping us all to call forth understanding and tenacity to deal with great change in the coming year.
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 December 25: InterSpiritual Worship with Rev. Karen Lindquist
“A Ceremony of Gnostic Mystery”
We offer this holy Mystery, O Lord Most High, for the sake of all the creatures of the world; And we beseech Thee, beloved of our hearts, to give them Thy protection and care that they may enjoy the grace of Thy Presence. That forests and waters may sing the joy of Thy name; That sands and deserts may join the hymn of nature; That animals may live in peace and compassion; That rulers may be filled with wisdom; And that all the countries of the world may find harmony with those within and those without; That the people may find relief of all their pains And attain to knowledge of Thy Love and Beauty; (Silent Remembrance) That those whose bodies have died May live in the Light of Thy Gnosis; (Silent Remembrance). That through Thy divine Grace and Logos we may, with All the kingdoms of nature, join in the chorus of the angels.
Amen. ~ Prayer for the World by Rosamonde Miller
