And God Saw That It Was Good

Over four sessions, this online program will offer written study guides supported by stunning video clips of the national parks from Ken Burns’s popular film. The step-by-step guide can be used by both group leaders and individuals to explore how the national parks can teach us about our relationship with both Divine Mystery and Earth.

Spirited Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is founded on the basic goodness of human nature and is a way of cultivating union with God through silence and surrender. It is said that one may or may not “feel” the presence of God during centering prayer but, with repeated practice, one grows into a deeper sense of God’s abiding presence in all places and at all times.

Community of the Wild Goose

A weekly gathering named and inspired by the Celtic’s image of Spirit, Wild Goose (for more see below). The gathering was created by Henry Rojas, a former NBA mascot/Chaplain and a bunch of hooligans in recovery ~ but we are not a recovery church or program! ~ welcoming anyone, whatever your journey of strong faith or no faith, doubting or seeking, religious or non-religious, wealthy or not so much, who love the idea of love but do it awkwardly.
