Welcome to The
We come together with diversity of thoughts, stories, talents, hopes and hurts. All we bring is welcome; our prayer is that in coming together with all our differences and with Spirit, we participate toward a new divine reality. This is sacred space.
Kabir (version by Robert Bly)
Friend, hope for the Guest while you are alive. Jump into experience while you are alive! …
What you call “salvation” belongs to the time before death.
If you don’t break your ropes while you are alive, do you think ghosts will do it after?
The idea that the soul will join with the ecstatic just because the body is rotten –
that is all fantasy.
What is found now is found then.
If you find nothing now, you will simply end up with an apartment in the City of
If you make love with the divine now,
in the next life you will have the face of satisfied desire…
TELLING OUR STORY
I see you!
I am here!
PEACE – TOAST
In this place we creatively express;
Some of us are focused, some are a mess!
We participate during the sermon
And people do connect, we are learnin’
Greet all with a handshake, toast or a wave
At all times feel free to yell, rant or rave
Fake not friends, we can arrive as we are.
Cheers! Here’s to sacred space in a bar!
Spirit, Guide our voices and our thoughts, so that in telling our own stories and listening to the stories of others, we may gain some insight into the mystery of life and into the mystery of the Divine.

And he instructed them not to take anything on the road, except a staff: no bread, no knapsack, no spending money, but to wear sandals, and to wear no more than one shirt. And he went on to say to them: “Wherever you enter someone’s house, stay there until you leave town. And whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you, get out of there and shake the dust off your feet in witness against them.”
So they set out and announced that people should turn their lives around, and they often drove out demons, and they anointed many sick people with oil and healed [them].
