We know that not everyone fits traditional church. Hell, most of us don’t fit traditional church. But most of us also want spirituality in our lives. Friends Church can help you find your unique spiritual journey: a journey that will not only connect you to something More but will change your entire life (and hopefully your entire world) …for the better.

Current Series – Oct 6 – 27

Many don’t realize that we have a “muscle” that can be developed that can help us live in the world in a vital way- a way that makes life richer and our world a bit better. We’re not talking about intelligence (I.Q. or E.Q levels). It’s not charisma or talent. Rather, it’s an understanding and way of living that sometimes flies in the face of popular/conventional intelligence. It can affect the way that you follow politics, what you eat, how you sleep, even the way you talk to your in-laws. 🙂

Our spiritual ancestors called it “Wisdom”.

Interestingly, In the ancient wisdom tradition, wisdom is personified as the feminine aspect of God, and was deeply treasured. [cut?]

Did you know that you can cultivate wisdom? You can develop a way of interacting with the world and with yourself that brings out the best in you and everyone around you.

Doing this. though, will likely require you to challenge some of your previous understandings and ways of being that you’ve embraced over the years. So this isn’t for the faint of heart, but the impact can be life changing

This October we’re taking 4 weeks to unpack some of this wisdom. Likely it will confront some of our current operating systems. But what it could lead to, could be pure gold. Hope you’ll join us!

Upcoming Series – 7 Deadly Sins: the Exploration of a Complex Life – Nov 3 – Dec 15

I was approached a while ago, at a dinner party, by someone from Friends Church. And they asked me, “What is Friends Church take on the 7 Deadly Sins?” After which we had a rousing debate on what is Pride, is it a bad thing, should some people have more of it, and where did the idea of 7 Deadly Sins come from anyways.

That conversation continued for days with that group, and then for months we read and talked about it as a teaching team. And we realized that maybe the 7 Deadly Sins have been steering the christian community wrong for years:

  • People not being honoring their skills for fear for Pride

  • People to speaking to injustice for fear of Anger

  • People’s sexuality being seen a bad because of teachings around Lust

Life is more complex than just saying something is always bad, or always good.
So we are going to tackle these 7 areas of our lives, to show the complexities of these areas, to show where we might need to follow the advice of our spiritual ancestors, and where we might need to ignore them all together.

Life is complex, this discussion will help.
