Finding Wisdom in Stillness

25 Jan, 2021

Elijah was one of the greatest OT prophets, known for his wisdom and power, but Elijah got himself in a bit of trouble after executing 450 prophets of the Canaanite God Ba’al. Specifically, he got in trouble with Queen Jezebel, wife of King...

Stillness Within

This message begins a three part series on stillness , which is not to be confused with not moving. Spiritually speaking, stillness – inner stillness which feels like inner peace – is something much different. It is often cultivated by non-...

The Energy of New Beginnings

11 Jan, 2021

Healing the World

23 Nov, 2020

Jewish tradition tells us that healing the world is an imperative - it is our calling, our purpose even, to collect the shards of light from all over and within creation, and piece it back together little by little. This is a difficult concept...

Being a Wounded Healer

16 Nov, 2020

Richard Rohr teaches, “we don’t seek spiritual awareness to help escape the pain of the world, but to gain the capacity to feel the pain and live in solidarity with it.” We’d all like to escape the pain and suffering in life. And, I suspect...
