Thriving in Difficult Times, What did Buddha have to say?

Difficult times are trying times. They expose our vulnerabilities. How can our vulnerabilities be our gifts? How do we hide our joy, peace and balance? How do we uncover it? Let’s explore together what Buddha had to say about all of this.

The order of service is here.

WE RETURN TO TWO SERVICES TODAY (AT 9:30 AND 11 AM)!
“Friend” means so many things, from an acquaintance you allow to read your social media, to the person for whom you’d drop everything and travel a thousand miles if they needed someone. What does it mean to you to have a friend? To be a friend? And what are you doing to tend your friendships? Music: Ruth Huber, piano
