The Temple of My Familiar

Author, Alice Walker, named her book this title. It is precursor to The Color Purple. The title struck a chord with the planning team and thus is the topic of our July service.

What is the temple of your familiar?

·       Is it a heart-connection?

·       Is it a place or a natural element that struck you as “utterly at home” with a creature or a place?

·       Did you recognize something you always knew but just discovered?

·       Do you have a temple that is only in your mind or is it an actual place?

Join us as we explore what we share in common, how we are unique, what we hold sacred, and how our views evolve with age as speakers discuss their "Temple of the Familiar"

Finding Meaning Through Creativity

The purpose of art is to make you feel something.

Has art helped you find or express meaning in your life? Did you or someone else create it?

Is it painting, sculpture, photography, collage, digital, music, poetry? Something else?

Come find out!

Alice Walker’s book, Temple of My Familiar, intrigued us so we decided to have a service Is it a heart connection, is it a place or a natural element that struck you as “utterly at home” with a creature or a place, did you recognize something you always knew but just discovered, do you have a temple that is only in your mind or is it an actual place?

Human beings are embodied creatures, imbued with both physical senses and higher consciousness – but the separation between those capacities is not nearly as wide as we would think. Even our highest intellectual and spiritual aspirations, once seen as quite separate from the physical, have now been shown to be Intertwined with our ability to feel and express compassion for each other.

And compassion is more than just a vague ideal – it is a loving, physical, creaturely response to others who share our lives on this planet, and especially those who share our human condition.
