Hello Member of Spiritual... Not Religious,
Welcome again new members and long time friends!
Last weeks potluck was a raving success! We had 5 full crockpots of delicious, delectable dishes, wonderful fruit, veggies, homemade potato salad and even cookies and cupcakes for dessert. It was awesome! We all shared a meal, filled our bellies with wonderful food, enjoyed great company and kindly supported one another.
Yesterday I realized that we are coming up on our 500th meetup anniversary. This has taken years of dedication and community support. We want to celebrate this achievement and thank every single person who has ever participated with an intention of success and support for this growing community. March 18th is the day of our 500th meeting. Let’s make this the largest and greatest potluck we’ve ever had! Even if you don’t regularly join us, please be here to help us celebrate this very incredibly special 500th Anniversary event. (If you want to help organize, please let me know.)
Together, for this event we will create a Celebration Wall… If you have ever found value in this community, in any way, you are being called to actively participate in this project. Your message of hope is what we want to include as part of this beautiful wall of creative, artistic, inspired sharing. This powerful collective project sets great intention for the future of this community and the world as a whole. Our wall will demonstrate how differences in opinion, belief, religion, and perspectives can all work together to create something beautiful.
Our Celebration Wall will serve as a reminder of inspiration, hope, and how being part of this “Spiritual… Not Religious” community enhances lives. Your contribution can be anything from 1 sentence on a napkin, to a full page of thoughts, a painting, wall hanging, images and words, cross stitch, a quilt, a collage, short story, metal work, calligraphy, poem, etc. When someone sees this wall we want them to be able to clearly understand how participating in this community has directly enhanced YOUR life. Your creative work will be collected each Monday at Consciousness Group until our Anniversary Celebration on March 18th. Even if you don’t feel artistic or creative please help us by sharing YOUR message of hope. If you are part of this community, you are being called to be part of this project. So, please allow your creative juices to flow. Share your thoughts, feelings, inspirations, insights, loving words, hope, affirmations, experiences, and joy. Share what this group means to you… How has being a part of this community enhanced your life? Marker, Crayon, Printed out on your computer, Paint, Photos, Pen, Pencil, Chalk, Fabric, Metal, Food, Etc… It doesn’t matter. Allow yourself to explore and enjoy the creative process… Have fun, let loose, be challenged, inspire others and most of all… help us create something beautiful (as a community) that involves, includes and supports everyone!
A gentle reminder again, (sorry if redundant) to please RSVP if you plan on attending groups or events. It really helps. The more active on meetup, the more interest we attract from new members, the more people find us, the more people attend, and the more interesting our gatherings are! We always want our meetings to feel open and inviting to others. Active RSVP’ing and participation encourages growth of our community. In addition, it helps me organize and plan for each week. Also, rating our group with 5+ stars builds interest by letting people know that our groups are a fun place to be!
See you every Monday at 7:00!
