Jan 21 Saturday 10-12  
San Diego Civic Center
 and join Church for Our Common Home, a home church with worship and pot lucks every Sunday evening 5 pm. Beginning January 2017 we offer a program, 
Jesus and Mary Magdalene's Third Way
 and the Inspiring and Creative History of Women and Nonviolent and Civil Disobedience Global Movements
Photo above is a nonviolent civil disobedience action at Republican Convention in Cleveland 2016 with artist Spencer Tunick,"  The philosophy of the artwork relates to the idea of the sacred feminine. By holding mirrors, we hope to suggest that women are a reflection and embodiment of nature, the sun, the sky and the land. We want to express the belief that we will  rely upon the stren gth, intuition and wisdom of progressive and enlightened women to find  our place in nature an d to regain the balance within it. The mirrors communicate that we are a reflection of ourselves, each other and of the world that surrounds 
us."
 
THE THIRD WAY , never responding to violence or aggression with more violence or aggression, and never lying down like a doormat and being the victim. A spiritual practice for us a
s individuals an
d for  community.
