Spirituality Within Religion and Beyond Belief
Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 9:30 am and 11:00 am
Rev. John Gibb Millspaugh, Guest Speaker
Whether or not we consider ourselves people of faith, all of us have encountered a depth of existence that reminds us that life holds hope and dynamic possibility. These flashes of awareness arise in contexts welcome and unwelcome, mundane and extraordinary. Are they random, or is there something we can do to invite more of them into our lives? Come hear an unexpected perspective on "spirituality" . . . and what it has to do with pottery and poetry, magic and mistrust, love and lower back pain.
Rev.
