At 11am (10am in summer)  Adults settle into silent worship.  Children report upstairs. Adults stay for an hour, centering our thoughts, attempting to reach a spiritual center that nourishes us, soothes us, and inspires us. Sometimes a person stands and shares a message that she or he feels compelled to share.  At other times we sit quietly absorbing the power of God within us, gathering the strength and love we find by being among other seekers.
