Our Sangha community meets on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 AM sharp in the Sanctuary. We begin with meditation and watch a film or two to spark our discussion.

“Dharma is great compassion, understanding, and love. To realize these qualities, we need a sangha… When a sangha shines its light on our personal views, we see more clearly. In the sangha, we won’t fall into negative habit patterns.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh

This Wednesday, August 5, 2015, our Sangha topic is “Exploring Our Connection to Christian Science.”

Explore how the Centers of Spiritual Living (formerly Church of Religious Science) are connected to the Christian Science philosophy. We will watch a film (or two) and have a discussion afterwards. No book is required.
