The Songs of My Life Gathering is open to anyone who is seeking connection. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month we gather to share food, then to share stories, songs and space with each other. In this way we grow together in our journey here on earth.
We meet together as friends, equal partners in a spiritual journey, This journey is more fulfilling and complete with shared with others. We can learn how to live better through sharing, taking action, praying and caring for others and ourselves. This improves our connection to each other and do the “God of our own understanding” is used to honor everyone’s view point and their personal relationship with God. Our experience has taught us that the God of our understanding, this great spirit of the universe can give us freedom from our obsessions and problems, heal us, and show us the way to serenity.
The meal and gathering are free. The community meal begins at 6 pm, and the gathering begins at 7 pm. Attendance at the community meal is not required to participate in the gathering.
All are welcome.
