Sunday Celebration Service – 11:00am to 12 Noon | Wednesday Wisdom Circle – 10 to Noon

Join us at Center for Spiritual Living Tacoma for an inspirational message from our Minister Reverend Dr. Frances Lorenz and guests. We always have amazing musical performances that will get you in the mood to celebrate life.

December Theme – The Prayer of the Master

While the outside world is embroiled in the trappings of the holiday season, each week at Center for Spiritual Living-Tacoma, we will turn inward to find rich and deep transformative meaning in one of the most well-known and oft-cited prayers in human history – the prayer taught by the man whose birth we celebrate this month.  This prayer, known as “The Lord’s Prayer” or “The Our Father,” has gone through many translations and interpretations.  Be sure to be with us to receive a full spectrum of the wisdom found in this prayer of the Master, and then be with us on Christmas Eve day and New Year’s Eve day for two very special services.

December 3 | Oh Thou, From Whom the Breath of Life Comes

December 3, 2017 | “Oh Thou, From Whom the Breath of Life Comes”
Music: Christina Berry

“Oh Thou, From Whom the Breath of Life Comes” is the beginning of an early translation of the Prayer of the Master.  Today we explore the depth and beauty of this version, and you may find some real surprises in it!  And you will most definitely find some deep wisdom for living a rich and full life today.

 

December 10 | O Birther! Father – Mother of the Cosmos

December 10,  2017  – “O Birther! Father – Mother of the Cosmos”
Music: Anjali Silva & CSL Choir

In this translation of the Master’s Prayer, which begins with “O Birther! Father – Mother of the Cosmos,” we find a road map for being in relationship with others as well as well as more deep, ancient wisdom applicable to our lives today.

December 17 | Our Father, Which Art in Heaven

December 17, 2017 | “Our Father, Which Art in Heaven”
Music:  Stephan Plummer

Today we will look at the most familiar translation of the Master’s Prayer, but we will look at it in a most unfamiliar way.  Come be surprised and delighted at what you experience.

December 24 | The Gift of Christmas, the Gift of You

December 24 2017 | “The Gift of Christmas, the Gift of You”
Music:  TBA

Thus far this month, we have explored three different interpretations of Prayer of the Master and have had some deep and rich experiences. This Christmas Eve morning, we will examine how we can live these opening lines in two versions of the Prayer:  “May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiness” and “Focus Your light within us – make it useful.”

December 31 | Our Personal Prayer

December 31, 2017 | “Our Personal Prayer “
Music: Steve and Kristi Nebel

Today we move away from the Master’s Prayer to delve into our own personal prayer life.  If you ever wanted to know the Top Ten List for creating a robust prayer life, today’s the day you will receive it.  Come celebrate New Years’ Eve morning with us as we set the tone for a prayer-filled 2018.
