How to Start Anew - A sermon with Rev. Fa Jun

January 7, 2018, 10:30am - January 8, 2018, 1:30am

How do we move forward boldly when it is time to start fresh? Do we have what it takes to let go of the habits, things, or people that are no longer serving us? And how do we define what really "Serves" us? This morning, we'll tap the New Year's energy of the days growing longer and plot our course forward. We'll learn a secret key and best practices for how to *initiate* bold new actions with inner power!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year. I am curious if any of you happen to know of places in the Los Gatos area that may offer or rent out space to bodyworkers/certified massage practitioners? I am wanting to keep costs low, and thought I would check to see if anyone in the community knows anything-since I am a commuter to this wonderful area of people. I am open to considering other areas if you think of something. With warm wishes and gratitude, ...

I heard that there was a nice article about Fa Jun in the Los Gatos paper. I didn't manage to find a copy before coming back to Santa Cruz last Sunday. Could somebody post this if you're able to? There were some nice, new people last Sunday, who might have come because of the article. Kudos to Harry for connecting with the reporter! ...

Compassionate Communication - Reprogramming Negative Self-Talk

January 25, 2018, 7:00pm - January 25, 2018, 10:30pm

The model set forth by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg as “Nonviolent Communication” is a tremendous tool for helping us speak kindly to those around us, but it is ALSO an inner practice about how we relate to our own thoughts and emotions. Tonight, we will aim these powerful tools inward and learn a way to speak to our selves that creates more peace, safety, insight, and warmth than ever before. We'll use tools not only from NVC, but other amazing systems that shed light on the *inner* conversation. And the great news is that when we’ve learned to utilize this type of communication within, we’ll automatically start utilizing it on the outside too! This class will be streamed online via Zoom - link sent out the day before. $12 suggested donation for non-members. Members free!

Dear friends, I want to try something special out at our service tomorrow.

As you know, I don't mind being a *little* experimental in terms of how we do a Sunday service. Since tomorrow is an intergenerational service, I want it to be filled with activities that we can ALL have fun doing!

In that spirit, since it is Xmas eve, I'd like to explore the possibility of doing this traditional Icelandic tradition where books are exchanged on Xmas eve and people stay up all night reading them and eating chocolate.

I'm wondering if you have a book lying around that you think someone in our Fellowship would enjoy reading, which you might bring along to give to them. And additionally, are you interested in bringing a bit of your *favorite* chocolate, so that we can all taste it???

I'll be bringing plenty of extra books and choco (including stevia sweetened and carob and all sorts of options) and will give you the rest of the specific instructions during the service. are you IN???

Blessings!

Rev. Fa Jun
