If you are here, you belong

Like many, we found organized religion empty. But we’d also experienced its power to transform us. So, rather than abandon it, we began to rethink, strip down, and rebuild it. We’ve become deeply grounded in the universal essence we found—the thread of Divine Life common to all of us. 

Until we can meet again in person, join us on our public Facebook page Sundays at 10:00 a.m. for a livestream of our service or watch later on our website here.

Revenge Matters (For Forgiveness)

In hyper-polarized times it is difficult to access our best selves. How do we find forgiveness for those who bother us, who hurt us? Well, counter-intuitively, revenge serves an important function.
