The Past, the Present, the Future
How We Keep On Keeping On 

In the aftermath of the fire at our church (see below), people keep asking me if nagasiva and i "okay" or "all right" and also asking what they can do to help. I am touched by everyone's concern for our well-being and happiness. Actually, we are fine. A set-back like this is difficult in terms of money and time, but folks have been pitching in the former and we have scheduled ways to handle the latter, and so all that remains is to dig in and do what has to be done. With dozens of wildfires burning right now in the American West, i count us as fortunate; we lost a sweet little building and a few dear Rose bushes, but we are okay. This is what life is often like -- two steps forward, one step back. We all know this, at least once we've negotiated our first Saturn return, to use an astrological notation.

If you do want to help and you can see your way clear to donating a small amount for the rebuilding of "The Smallest Church in the World," we would be greatly appreciative.

Meanwhile, we are pushing ahead on other projects at the same time that we are organizing the rebuilding of our little church. Next month, for instance, i will be hosting an in-person Apprenticeship Week (see details below) and in the September newsletter there will be an announcement of a major overhaul to our divination supplies catalogue, from A to Z, spearheaded by nagasiva and Ernie Medeiros. I predict that you're going to love that news a lot.

Thanks for asking.

Neither Fireworks
Nor Arson 
Hello, this is Rev. cat:

About half an hour after midnight on July 14th, i heard a crackling noise, looked out my house-office window and saw the flames. I called 911 while nagasiva ran a garden hose on the plants. The church sat on a flagstone pad and was built as a chimney, to conduct flame in the case of such an event. The Forestville Volunteer Fire Department responded very quickly (they are three blocks away) and everything was under control in less than half an hour.

It is my intention to cease candle services at this time. I was going to do so in May 2019 anyway, as part of my retirement, and it seems foolish to make a big deal about renewing such services for a mere year and a half.

Ceasing the candle services does leave issues of financial obligation to our clients The church has money at Paypal and in its bank account to refund for the candles currently unlit. That leaves the issue of the candles that were ruined. We will attempt to refund for those as well, or to make other arrangements for them to be started over.

We have closed down the church's candle-services web page to prevent further financial obligations and have created a redirect page that briefly explains what has happened and rolls directly over to Four Altars Gospel Sanctuary, our sister-church in Southern California, where Deacon Millett and his helpers can accommodate your needs.

Tarot cards pulled on this event:

The World, The Wheel of Fortune, the Queen of Pentacles.

So it goes.

Rev. cat

Rising From the Ashes 
in Power   
In the aftermath of the fire at Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, so many have reached out with kind words and offers of help. We appreciate each and every one of you.

It seems the community is not content to let the church building be a memory, and Deacon Millett of Four Altars has responded to your generous offers of financial aid by setting up this GoFundMe page.

All donations will go to rebuilding the smallest church in the world not to hold candle services again, but as a place for readings, quiet meditation, and spiritual uplift.

We will keep you updated throughout the construction, so that you can watch your church arise from the ashes.

At the time of sending this message we have raised more than $9,000.00 of our projected $10,000.00 needed funds. We thank everyone who has contributed and will contribute to this fund.   


Daniel Smith to the Rescue!


Although we are saddened at the loss of the original Missionary Independent Spiritualist Church, we have great news! Our dear friend, model railroader, fine carpenter, cabinet-maker, switch-builder, trestle creator, father of eight, and skateboarder supreme Daniel Smith is moving up in the world -- having built the much-adored 1:24 model of our church for the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. ET&WNC G-Scale railroad layout, he just called in from Colorado, where he was attending the National Garden Railway Convention, and offered to rebuild the 1:1 Prototype Missionary Independent Spiritual Church which burned down last week.


 White Sphere

  Daniel Smith, e xpert woodcrafter,   to do the rebuild! 

It's the Smallest Church in the World, and we are having its model builder rebuild the prototype. Ah, the recursiveness, it's blowing my mind!



A General Call 
for Photographs

If you have taken any photographs of MISC over the years, please send donation photo files to:

as they may be useful to our rebuilding project. If you have many photos and would like to contribute them in bulk to the project, place them on a thumb drive (the church has Macintosh computers so they should be compatible with these) and send them to:

Missionary Independent Spiritual Church
Rebuilding Dept.
6632 Covey Road
Forestville, CA 95436

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support!
