• Contemplative Prayer is Back
What is it? How does it work? Come for an introduction and opportunity to practice at 9:30 am every Wednesday (except the week after Christmas). We will be done by 9:50 before the Healing Service people arrive.

• Think carefully before speaking with people about the election and aftermath.
Everybody is on edge. Avoid pressing your opinions, gloating, minimizing, or pretending we have not lost something. We need time to heal and grieve. Respect each other, tread gently. Pray, listen, and wait for a time when people are calmer, better rested, and humbly open to deep listening and honest sharing. Only then can we join together to move forward for what is right and good for all.

• What is Being Christian?
Jesus was all about self-giving love for the good of all, no exceptions, not even his enemies. God's transforming love heals and restores wholeness. If we will it to be and help it to be, we are part of this power of love. Only then can resurrection hope give birth to reconciliation. It's time to stand up for and with Jesus Christ as he is known in the Gospels and early Christian Writing. He is our model of self-giving love and service to others, even our enemies, for Divine Love is greater than any evil in any form.

• Faith Hope Caring Honesty Compassion.
These are our parish core values. Help us live into them.

• Our parish vision is to be a faithful embodiment of Jesus Christ's transforming love.

• Our mission is to spread the positive energy of Jesus Christ's self-giving love through worship, prayer, service, learning and hospitality. How are we doing?

• Community Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at Temple Sinai Tuesday November 22 at 7:00 pm.
Our Community is expanding. Come experience the joy of sharing gratitude among Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Civic groups.
