Essential Spirituality
Pt. 1 Transform Your Motivation

Dear <<First Name>>,


This Sunday we begin the study of the book Essential Spirituality by Dr. Roger Walsh.  In the book, Dr. Walsh distinguishes spirituality from religion, emphasizing that spirituality refers to the direct experience of the sacred.  

For the remainder of September and all of October, we'll look at the seven perennial practices common to all authentic religion and the practical exercises for applying them in all aspects of life.

This Sunday we begin with transforming our motivation.  We have the opportunity to examine our mistaken ideas about what brings happiness.  We learn the difference between desire and attachment, and find two strategies for handling attachments, the second of which leads to freedom. 

I'm looking forward to diving into Essential Spirituality with you!

In love and joy,
Rev. Jude

Happy Birthday, You September Stars!

A big, happy birthday wish goes out to all you September babies celebrating this month! With one of your birth flowers being the aster (meaning “star”) it’s no wonder you fill the world with light

Here are some September birthday fun facts for all of you celebrating another trip around the sun

  • The name September comes from the Latin septem for seven, since this was the seventh month of the Roman calendar.
  • September has several birth flowers–the forget-me-not, the morning glory, and the aster.
  • Your birth stone is the sapphire and gives the wearer luck. Sapphire is usually envisioned as a blue stone but also comes in green, pink, purple and clear.
  • You’re in good company with some very famous birthdays this month–Dr. Phil (9/1), Beyonce Knowles (9/4), Pippa Middleton (9/6), Adam Sandler (9/9), Michael Buble (9/9), Harry Connick (9/11), Niall Horan (9/13), Jimmy Fallon (9/19), Bruce Springsteen (9/23) and Will Smith (9/25)


Both astrological signs Virgo and Libra fall within September, are harmonious signs making you a balanced personable individual to be around, so shine on like the star you are!
