Please join Rev. Andy for an inspirational Sunday Celebration Service highlighted by his enlightening talk entitled:

"Word Flowers"

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both TRUE and KIND, they can change our world.” -The Buddha

What words are inhabiting our garden of living? WE can tell by what’s growing there.


Affirmation: Each day, I intentionally plant the seeds of LOVE and HEALING, through my words.

Special Music by Alan Rigg
