Hello friends,

I invite you to join me in a free Zoom class/discussion/practice group that I'll be starting next Wednesday, Jan.12 from 5 to 6pm (MST). The goal is to integrate the deep parts of our self, to become more whole, healthy and balanced in heart, mind and spirit, and to connect with others.

Please take a few minutes to look at this short video on YouTube. It's called "Soul-tending the Garden: Following Carl Jung into the Tao."

Each week I'll be offering a brief teaching from Jung and Taoism. Then we'll have discussion and sharing, followed by experiences using Jung's methods or Taoist practices.

Please forward this link to anyone who might be interested. Also please let me know by email if you'd like to join us.


I'm looking forward to being with you,

John Dore, Ph.D.

To enhance your spiritual considerations dealing with importance issues such as white privilege, white supremacy, critical race theory, etc.....and knowing the difference, in today's language's....consider attending and discussing what you know and want to know, and learning even more for your discussion and education (possibly) with your spouse, family, and friends. We meet the fourth Wednesday of the month at 4:30 pm on Zoom ( https://us06web.zoom.us/j/92790249045?pwd=c25hamVZRllUZFJvMW5Xcm00MFlnQT09 ) .....typically we read an article or two that's been received from other members and sent out by Rev. Chris to focus our discussions/learning. We have included articles by James Baldwin, articles and YouTube presentations on The Ghost Dance, and an article on Bruce's Beach. To know more about these, please come to our meeting. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rev. Chris or Peggy Scott through the Church Office. Your attendance would be an honor and most welcome!

Peaceful blessings, Chris

Screening of “Original Child Bomb” – a meditation on the delusion of nuclear weapon utility. 2004, 57 minutes.
Event: Wednesday January 26, 2022 at 6-8 pm

2004 documentary, named for a Thomas Merton poem, reviews the atom bomb history of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Film contains historical and contemporary footage of reactions to the bombing including footage of the photographer in 1945. The US is the only war-time user of nukes to date, and now is one of nine nations with known nuclear weapons. Deterrence, the US strategy, has brought this nuclear proliferation. Now the majority of the globe demands nuclear abolition!

Artisans Beyond Borders, (ABB) a bi-national ministry at Grace St. Paul’s, began in 2019 as a way to bring trauma-informed arts and activities to asylum-seekers and their families waiting in shelters and on the streets in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.

Today, in the shadow of politics and pandemic, therapeutic arts and the dignity of artisanal craft continue to bring comfort to the traumatized and hope to asylum-seekers. Bordando Esperanza / Embroidering Hope, the flagship program, also helps restore personal agency and income through Etsy shop sales of artisans’ original hand-embroideries.
