Lessons from the Fellowship of the Ring

When the movie series The Fellowship of the Ring burst onto the movie scene just over twenty years ago, a whole new generation fell in love with this classic epic fantasy adventure story. Join Rev. Samaya for an exploration of what lessons we can take from the Fellowship of the Ring.

Listening to be Changed

Moving from an individually focused culture to one that considers the impacts of the community requires the ability to listen deeply to one another. It is in this deep listening that we are profoundly changed as human beings.

It’s All About Love

When we hold love at the center of our being, we can awaken to new possibilities that were not possible before. What does it mean to hold love at the center of who we are as we make our way forward in an endemic world?

Communion as Connection

One aspect of our mission statement is to connect by forming meaningful relationships. As we come together on this Easter Sunday, let’s look at what communion and connection have to do with each other.

Awakening To the Hero’s Journey

A League of Their Own
