A spiritual community based on six value statements. Two of those values are Common Humanity and Diversity. We believe that the human family is one family and that our differences—of race, sexual orientation, nationality and belief—are to be celebrated. Naturally, we are happy to have a “booth” at the Fiesta’s Virtual Mercado.
- Our Values and purpose statement are online here.
- Each Sunday 10:00 am on Facebook, teachings by our leader Kent Dobson or a guest speaker, and noon Wednesdays short meditations.
