The Burning Bowl Service
New Year’s Eve, 11:00 am and 6:00 pm,
Sunday, December 31, 2017

Clear out the closets of your mind and make room for the life your soul desires.  Open your imagination and heart to the blessings God is offering you.  This is our traditional ritual of releasing to the burning bowl those things that no longer serve us and writing our letter to God claiming our vision of good for the coming year.
We will sing, pray and step forward into a New Year filled with wonderful possibilities for all.

Book Study: The Woman With the Alabaster Jar
Tuesdays, 10:00 am – 11:30 am beginning January 2

Margaret Starbird’s theological beliefs were profoundly shaken when she read Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a book that dared to suggest that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalen and that their descendants carried on his holy bloodline in Western Europe. Shocked by such heresy, this Roman Catholic scholar set out to refute it, but instead found new and compelling evidence for the existence of the bride of Jesus–the same enigmatic woman who anointed him with precious unguent from her “alabaster jar.”

In this provocative book, Starbird draws her conclusions from an extensive study of history, heraldry, symbolism, medieval art, mythology, psychology, and the Bible itself. The Woman with the Alabaster Jaris a quest for the forgotten feminine–in the hope that its return will help restore a healthy balance to planet Earth.
