posted Oct 3, 2017, 11:27 AM by Julie Cooke   [ updated Sep 17, 2018, 9:00 PM ]

Please join Rev. Andy during our celebration service for an inspirational and enlightening talk entitled:

"Original Freedom"

Imagine all the resources inhabiting the universe –material resources, resources of imagination, intellectual resources, mystical resources, and anything else used to build personal manifestations. Where do they all gather in order to be turned into the creations of healing, right action, new expression, or any form of realization or transformation? –The work shop of FREEDOM.

Affirmation: FREEDOM, dear FREEDOM; each moment I’m aware of its Power and Creative Presence. 


Special Music by Alan Rigg
