The Worship Theme for March is “Earth-Centered”
March 4: “Why Do Goddesses Have Names?” What does it mean to have a personified diety/embodiment, spirituality in our bodies? Rev. Aija Simpson preaching with worship associate Emily Crutcher.
March 11: “Place Matters” Where we plant our feet matters. And when we change our place, sometimes we change our faith. Rev. Aija Simpson preaching with worship associate Gisela Roethke.
March 18: “In Balance” As we come upon the Spring equinox, we ask, what does it mean to be in balance? Rev. Aija Simpson preaching with worship associates Rachel Teates and Rev. Dr. Kathy Ellis.
March 25: “How to Empower Your Mind” Rumi says “what you seek is seeking you”… perhaps it’s true. The evidence of the power of our minds is undeniable.. The ancient texts of the Buddha tell us that no external condition can be the cause of our happiness, only the mind has that ability. When people understand how they are influenced, the root causes of struggle and what we can do with our minds to make things better, sustainable happiness and radiant joy are the result. Bhante Sujata is our guest speaker with Dan Cozort as worship associate.
About our Guest Speaker…
“My life as a Buddhist monk has given me a front row seat to incredible transformation within so many people as I teach them how to empower the mind and cultivate the qualities that will help you find strength and happiness, as well as give you a burning desire to add more love to the world. When we understand our mind, we begin to re-shape our behavior and feelings about so many things… it’s the most loving act of service one can do for themselves and the world.”
