Today we didn't hold a service.  Our community communed over a pot luck dinner... and we performed a general clean up of the building and grounds.  We do this periodically.  We sometimes call ourselves the beloved community.  The important thing is, that we discuss things... a wide range of things so long as the discussion rests within these boundaries:  

  1. 1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  2. 2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. 3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  4. 4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  5. 5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  6. 6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. 7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

By the way, the food was great.  Come join us.

Peace,

Rick
