WEEKEND CLASSES, PROGRAMS AND EVENTS: (Apr-Dec 2008): Information # (616) 566-4318.
   
 

SUNDAY SERVICES AND INTERFAITH PRESENTATIONS - 11AM TO 1PM

Presentations by and dialogue with representatives of various World Religions and Contemporary movements in Cosmology and Ecology, occur each Sunday from 11am to 12 noon. An experiential component consisting of prayers, readings, rituals, music, art and meditation from various world religions occur from 12 noon to 1pm. Local musicians provide music during and after our services and Dances of Universal Peace occur every third Sunday from 3-6pm. Our community comes together to share and experience the diversity of each individual's culture, tradition and path. We are seekers of truth and compassionate service, for the good of all living beings and the sustainability of the earth. Please join us in our Sunday vegetarian potlucks! Afternoon programs usually follow between 2-4pm.

 

CHILDREN'S INTERFAITH SUNDAY PROGRAMS - 11AM TO 1PM

A children's interfaith program and service is offered each Sunday from 11am to 1pm which introduces children to stories, art, prayers, rituals, and beliefs of various world religions. Our goal is to provide children with a variety of educational experiences, suited to their developmental stage, to equip them to live fruitfully in a multicultural, multireligious world. Our community is interfaith, made up of individuals of various backgrounds and faiths. We are also multi-cultural and inter-generational (young and old alike), demonstrating respect and self individual acknowledgement that each one of us are divine. We carry this knowledge with us, and by example, speak to our children the importance of dialogue between one another and family alike. We demonstrate listening and learning, questioning and dialogue to discover the human heart and the Spirit of one and all.
