A welcome message from Dr. David Bruner, Spiritual Director.
Welcome to the Center for Spiritual Living, where all that we ask is that you stay open to the possibility of changing your entire life ... by changing your mind.
Center for Spiritual Living is a place where the entire lifecycle of a people and their continuing relationship with Spirit can be celebrated. Generations of spiritual truth seekers have been creating this haven, wherein every person is honored, noticed, and valued. Our members and friends are diverse in age, lifestyle and culture, and are deeply committed to community life. You are welcome here.
Attending a new spiritual community may sometimes be unsettling. Because of that, we will not ask you to stand, speak or do anything to draw attention to yourself. Although we are a joyful, gregarious and hugging group, we are equally as happy to shake hands. When the offering basket is passed during service give if you feel called, but as our guest, we have no expectation.
Our 2014 Annual Theme is "Sowing Seeds of Greatness – A New Design For Living." Additionally, we are using the Centers for Spiritual Living Global Heart Vision as our guide, which reads:
We envision the emergence of the Global Heart to balance and guide our evolution as stewards of our planet and all its inhabitants.
We see a world free of homelessness, violence, war, hunger, separation and disenfranchisement. We see a world in which there is generous and continuous sharing of heart and resources ... a world in which forgiveness, whether for errors, injustices, or debts, is the norm ... a world in which borders are irrelevant ... a world which has renewed its emphasis on beauty, nature and love through a resurgence of creativity, art, and aesthetics ... a world in which fellowship prospers and connects through the guidance of spiritual wisdom and experience ...... a world in which we live and grow as One Global Family that respects and honors the interconnectedness of all life.
We envision Center for Spiritual Living as a bridge across the illness and illusion of separation, thereby dynamically empowering the vision of Global Heart. The spiritual community of Center for Spiritual Living is united and actuated by this compelling vision of a healthy world — a world experiencing Global Heart — and is ardently committed to bringing this vision forth through its ministries and its transformative teaching.
Center for Spiritual Living is a community of inspired individuals caring for and about each other and the entire planetary family, thereby bringing the gift of active compassion and kindness to the world and causing us to become a point of inspiration and influence to benefit all expressions of Life.
Our Monthly Themes support the Annual Theme and Global Heart Vision. In short, 2014 will be a year of exploring our understanding and daily application of our New Thought, Ancient Wisdom and Mystical traditions.
Our prayer is that somewhere between worship services, rites of passage, spiritual education opportunities, and community-building social events you will find exactly what you are seeking. Grateful you have joined us in celebration, I remain
