SIF Update

Susan Promo Photo 2010We had a lovely Sunday Gathering on the 11th, watching the inspiring talk given by Deepak Chopra on The Future of God.  A short discussion followed, in which was expressed an interest in continuing the conversation through a study of the book by the same name.  It was great to see some old friends of the Fellowship, and make some new ones, too.

The plan at this time is to alternate Sundays between a “regular” Gathering and the book study, and possibly also utilizing some short DVD materials of Chopra in conversation with Robert Lawrence Kuhn* as launching points for discussion, tackling such topics as “What Is Consciousness?”

I am pre-ordering several paperback copies of The Future of God from Amazon to hand out this Sunday, in preparation for the following week, and will send along some materials next week with a reading schedule.

IMPORTANT: I need to know as soon as possible if you would like a copy of the book, even if you don’t plan on being at the study on a regular basis.  Cost is $13.00 including tax.

So, the upcoming schedule will be:

Sunday, January 24:  Sunday Gathering, including prayer and meditation, a  short message, music, inspiring readings.  Brunch afterward.

Sunday, January 31: Launch of the book study.  Even if you don’t plan on attending every one of them, I foresee this as available to everyone to drop in at any point along the way.  It’s simply a vehicle for discussing spirituality in the context of our daily lives, and also how it intersects with science.  Brunch afterward.

Sunday, February 7:  Sunday Gathering, including prayer and meditation, a short message, music, inspiring readings.  Brunch afterward.

We look forward to connecting!
