Essential Spirituality
Pt. 7 Express Spirit in Action

Dear <<First Name>>,

 "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!"  This Zen admonition points up the fact that no meaning from outside of ourselves is real.  The only meaning in our lives is what we each bring to them.   The historical Buddha, on attaining enlightenment, is said to have realized that all beings, just as they are, are Buddhas. It is said his dying words to his disciples were, "Be a lamp unto yourselves." Be your own light, your own authority, your own Buddha.

We must learn, once we are willing to give up being taught, that we already know how to live, that it is implied in our own lives.  The "Buddhahood" of each of us has already been within. We need only recognize it... Killing the Buddha on the road means destroying the hope that anything outside of ourselves can be our master! No one is any "bigger" than anyone else. There are no "mothers" and "fathers" for grown-ups, only "sisters" and "brothers!"

We warmly invite you to join us for our final week of the book Essential Spirituality by Dr. Roger Walsh.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in spiritually community this Sunday!

Big love,
Rev. Jude

Welcome Back,
Youth and Family Ministry to our Building!

This Week we celebrate Halloween with our youth.  No scary costumes, please. 
A Message from Youth and Family Ministry Director Jennifer Hart

We had a wonderful first week back with five kiddos!   At this time, our nursery is still on hold and we are welcoming children aged 4 (pre-k) and up.
    Our focus is getting reacquainted with the space, sacred circle flow and our Five Basic Unity Principles . We will be in the classroom for 45 minutes with our masks on and will then move to the patio for outdoor fellowship, games, snacks and being blessed (in person! 🙌) by our congregation.
    Parents and caregivers please arrive a few minutes early to update registration paperwork and hear about our evolved program.

     I am deeply encouraged by this next chapter and look forward to the fruition of an active spiritual sanctuary for our youth. Your continued support of the YFM program is appreciated and prized! 

Peace - Jenn Hart

Happy Birthday, Octobies!

You lucky autumn babies celebrate your birthdays in one of the most gorgeous months of the year! It’s no wonder, with love-filled and charming Libra (Sept 24-Oct 23) and loyal and passionate Scorpio (Oct 24-Nov 22) ruling this month.

Here are some October birthday fun facts for you to enjoy.

  • You have two birthstones–opals and tourmaline. It is said an opal will crack if worn by someone not born in October!
  • Your birth flower is the Calendula, which is in the marigold family, and is valued for its medicinal and healing properties.
  • You are classified as the “Peacemaker” in astrology and are strongly motivated by a desire for justice and strive to maintain harmony in all areas of your life.
  • October was originally the eighth month of the Roman calendar. It comes from the Latin word “octo” meaning eight. Later, it became the 10th month when January and February were added to the calendar.
  • October folklore says that if the deer have a gray coat in October, expect a hard winter.
  • More American Presidents were born in the month of October than any other month. They were John Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Chester Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Jimmy Carter.
  • Some famous October birthdays include Zach Galifinakis, Julie Andrews (10/1); Kate Winslet (10/5); Matt Damon (10/8); Mario Lopez (10/10); Hugh Jackman (10/12); Angela Lansbury (10/16); John Krasinski (10/20); Katy Perry (10/25); Hillary Clinton (10/26); Bill Gates and Julia Roberts (10/28).

There’s extra good news for autumn babies–some research suggests that those born between September and November are more likely to live to 100 years old than people born during the other months of the year. So here’s to you… may you have many beautiful birthdays to come!
