Loving greetings and welcome to October, which we traditionally dedicate to celebrating the gift of friendship in our lives. This year’s theme, “Limitless Friendliness,” embraces not only those we call friend, it also reminds us that Spirit’s essence permeates each and every person in which it has uniquely individualized itself. I invite you to join us as we practice extending loving kindness and compassion to all beings, including ourselves. I also wish to add an extra sentence here to express my heartfelt gratitude for the divine friendship we share as a spiritual family.
The October 2, 2022 topic is Growing Holy Relationships, Part 1. “There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” Those stirring words from St. Thomas Aquinas encourage us not to take for granted the friends who bless our lives. Please join us this Sunday as we focus on the soul-qualities we bring to the altar of friendship, and the inner enrichment that is ours when we open our heart to receiving the gifts offered through growing holy relationships.
