“How to Fight Fire with Water”
Using water to fight fire seems pretty intuitive but is a principle we often forget when it comes to difference or conflict. Taking a lesson from Daoist philosophy and martial arts practice, we’ll explore a path through conflict inspired by the softest of the elements. We’ll study the secrets of Daoist alchemy – using profound methods to take diverse elements and bring them to union on a higher level. In this advanced alchemy, we’ll go beyond “fighting” entirely and become capable of using the elemental energies arising in any moment by harmonizing with them. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister

“Cultivating Crops, Connections, and Community”
Join us this Sunday to learn about Veggielution, a non-profit farm that welcomes local residents through programs that encourage experiential, intergenerational learning and deep connection. Through its three key program platforms – community engagement, environmental education, and food sovereignty – Veggielution aims to help our East San José neighbors experience a richness of community life and health that combats social isolation and provides the support needed to take positive action in their community. Veggielution is part of the Sí Se Puede Collective, a group of five community-based organizations in the Mayfair District of East San José. Emily Schwing from Veggielution will be our guest speaker.

To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength, and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We find joy and meaning in such a community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
We are a Welcoming Congregation, intentionally and openly taking steps to welcome into our community people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
