Sunday, November 16 Service with Rev. Myo-O Marilyn Habermas-Scher 10:30 AM SANGHA: ALIVENESS IN COMMUNITY-THE THIRD PRINCIPLE IN ACTION The third principle of Unitarian Universalists is: Acceptance of one another and encouragement for spiritual growth in our congregations. This principle points to the action of Sangha (community) in Buddhist practice. Sangha is the third of the Three Jewels in which we take refuge daily: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha. Without helping each other to support our spiritual risks as well as to point out our confusions, we cannot continue to grow in beautiful ways, with each other. Rev. Reb Hardies of Washington D.C. writes: " Instead of fiight or flight, we need a spiritual posture of embrace.” What is the practice of embrace, and where does it lead us? Let’s examine this question, and practice with it in the moment, together.
Spirit of Life will be holding our annual silent auction on Sunday, November 16th , following our service. For those of you unfamiliar with silent service auctions, this is how they work: a person, couple, or group of people offer a service for others to bid upon; the bid is done silently by those in attendance going from station to station and writing down bids for a particular service.
Meditation practice will be on the first Sunday of each month with regular services on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays.
