Upcoming Talks

Sunday Topics for October

Theme: MORE TOGETHER THAN ALONE
Let us explore the deepest need of our time. We must return to the enduring truth: “We must love one another or perish”. We must keep alive the compassion of the heart no matter how deafening the noise of hate. Our fall class will also explore this essential task.

October 7    QUESTIONS TO LIVE WITH
When we stay in the question we explore the totality of possibilities. They involve reflection, deep listening, honest conversation, and intimate ways to expand our relationships within our own communities. The work of repairing the world is endless and beautiful. It begins in the question.

October 15    CENTERS OF LIGHT
Truth is an eternal conversation about things that matter. If we want to live “in the truth”, we must learn to live in the conversation rather than in its conclusions of the moment. Each of us is a center of light illuminating the emerging conversation with clarity and insight.

October 22    LARGER THAN OURSELVES
John McCain encouraged people to serve a vision that is larger than ourselves. Could the suffering we observe serve to awaken compassion in the hearts of humanity? Could we hitch our wagon to a star of hope and possibility for a world that works for everyone?

October 29    UNRAVELING THE KNOTS
Albert Schweitzer said, “Humankind is waiting and longing for those who can accomplish the task of untying what is knotted and bringing these heartfelt streams of idealism and kindness to the world.” The goal is not progress but embodiment, not advancing knowledge but increasing compassion.

Sunday Topics for November

Theme: THE GRATEFUL HEART
“An attitude of gratitude is most salutary, and bespeaks the realization that we are now in heaven. Praise and thanksgiving are really attitudes of recognition. They are affirmations of Divine Presence, Divine Abundance and Divine Givingness.” E. Holmes

Nov. 4    PATH OF THE HEART
The path of the heart is to learn to listen, to allow and to really take in the many, many communications from all directions that are guiding our attention, helping show us the way to return home. Jodi Rutenberg has followed such an authentic path and will weave her open hearted truth this Sunday.

Nov. 11    ENTRAINMENTS OF HEART
Tending to the life around us can invoke an entrainment of hearts. A common rhythm is invoked when we enter relationships with a vibrational resonance. Returning from CIRCLE OF LOVE will provide the context for this dance of intimacy.

Nov. 18    CONNECTED IN THE BIG HEART
True abundance and aliveness encompasses our complete human experience. We meet in the One Heart of Life. We discover what it means to be alive, curious and continually fascinated with existence. Thank you is our constant prayer.

Nov. 25    LIVING FROM THE HEART
When the view of “other” is completely different, we realize that there really aren’t “others”. Then we relate more from the heart, from that big space of vastness and connection. Acceptance, gratitude and intimacy fill the moments of our life.
