Do you feel it? That energy in the air? The warmer temperatures, the stirring of growing things outdoors, the baby livestock…all of this signifies new beginnings, and I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling an increase in energy as well, and so is our community! Welcome to all our new members!
April is bringing with it some wonderful additions to our lineup of events.
First of all I am happy to announce that we are bringing back the before the service meditation! Maggie Wattle, RSvP will be leading anyone interested in a short meditation beginning at 9:50 every Sunday. We have had many requests for this and I am so happy to be able to provide this service for you!
Secondly, we are now doing a monthly Movie night! Come and join us on Sunday, April 12 at 5:30 for pot luck and a movie! This month’s movie will be “Lincoln.” Bring a potluck dish to share at 5:30, and popcorn will be served for the 6 pm movie.
For the busy summer months we will not be doing the Thursday night meditations in Gardnerville, but I am so excited to announce a twice monthly Taize service, one in Gardnerville and one in Carson City. The last Thursday features the Gardnerville Taize, the second Thursday will feature the Carson City Taize. If you aren’t aware, a Taize Service is a devotional time devoted to music, inspirational readings and meditation. There are about 5 rounds of music/reading/meditation during the hour of the service, and it is being served up to you on a love offering basis at both locations. The service will always be at 6 pm in both locations. We kick off this series with the Gardnerville Taize on April 30. Our Gardnerville outreach location is at 1452 Highway 395. The Carson City location is of course our Center, at 3579 Highway 50 East in Unit 301. The CSLCC Taize service will be May 14, also at 6 pm.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be offering a brand new workshop on April 17. That is a Friday, the workshop is from 6-8 pm. This new workshop is about integrating activity and contemplation. If you find yourself busier than a cat in a room full of wheelchairs, and feel like you just don’t have enough time in your world to do all the things you want to do, AND meditate every day, then this workshop is for you! There will be a sign up sheet at the Center, fee for the workshop is $25.
Maggie Wattle, RSvP is our guest speaker for April 12, and she will be speaking to our monthly theme of Life! Meditation at 9:50, service at 10:30.
Once again, welcome to all our new members, and I look forward to seeing you!
Join us for a very special guest speaker on Sunday, March 15! Rev. Barbara Leger, Spiritual Director of the Temenos Center for Self-Realization in Ukraine, will be speaking and doing a workshop!
Her talk is titled Leaping in Faith, and she says, “While leaping is great fun, we succeed when supported by practice and trust in God.”
After the talk she will present on workshop title Let Peace Begin with Me. During the workshop you will be presented with three questions designed to guide you out of limited thinking and into full potential.
In between we will have a potluck. I hope you will join us. The fun begins with the service at 10:30, the workshop is at 12:30.
