Fall faith 2012 is kicking off on September 30! This year our 6-week Sunday series and Wednesday study circles are based on the book "Love for No Reason" by Marci Shimoff. Here's a sneak peak into the book itself:

"What if you could live in a state of unconditional love all of the time - if you could love people, not because they fill your needs or because they love you, but because you're connected to a state of pure love within yourself? In Love for No Reason, transformational expert and bestselling author Marci Shimoff offers a breakthrough approach to experiencing a deep and lasting state of unconditional love. Drawing on current scientific research, ancient wisdom, and proven techniques, her holistic 7-step program will open your heart, make you a magnet for love, and transform your life." (as written on book cover)

Our spiritual community looks forward to fall faith every year! We hope you'll join us this year as we take a deep dive together into love for no reason. Learn more about fall faith 2012 below or online. 
Peace and abundant blessings,

Thoughts from Reverend Patricia - "What's on the Inside?"
p bass
When Beverly Daniel Tatum's son Jonathan was three years old, he began to notice that his skin color was different from the other kids in his preschool. He was curious and began to ask questions. One morning as Tatum was fixing his eggs for breakfast, she noticed that some of the eggs on the counter were brown and some were white. more 


Small group of people meet a big need!
Kay & Mike Mike McCord and Kay Ornella noticed a need and they stepped up to fill it! After church one Sunday, Mike and Kay went out on our grounds and saw a tree planted years ago starting to die from the effects of this summer's drought. With a strong desire to protect our grounds, they sent an email to staff asking to find out how frequently the plants get watered. When they found out that we didn't have a regular watering schedule for our campus grounds, Mike sent out a call for help to our green team. Many of the green team members also felt the same strong desire to keep our plants alive and thus, our new watering team was formed. Kay Ornella has stepped in as team leader and has been organizing the effort to keep our plants watered and healthy.

Our theme this year is "Discovering the Power Within". Thank you to both Mike and Kay for expressing the power within you and taking the initiative to make a difference!

And thank you to those currently volunteering on the watering team! - Lyndall Caldwell, LeAnne Cummings, Angela Erber, Jan Gallagher, Evonne Garman, Jana Love, Mike McCord, Kay Ornella, Elisabet Navarte, Kim Scholz, Donna Sherman, Salle Stewart, Curt Straub and Polly Swafford
If you are interested in joining the watering team email Kay Ornella
