Flames of FaithLighting the Flames of Faith

Each week we light the Flames of Faith to acknowledge that all people and all faiths come from the One Power/Love/Intelligence, which we call Spirit or God.

Spiritual, not Religious

We're a non-denominational spiritual community anchored in the ancient wisdom of all of the great traditions. We each create our life according to our beliefs using the proven techniques of Practical Spirituality. It’s not a secret! These universal keys to healing, harmony and the life we desire are summarized and explained in clear, everyday language free of dogma or limitation.

Sunday Celebration

February 14: "I Love Steven Singer"

Dawn HiattAnother in our series of Postcard Talks

There is only Love. So begins a typical prayer, citing our understanding that everything is part of one infinite creation. But if there is only this one Love, how come stuff shows up that looks like something else? Rev. Bill Marchiony uses the Philly billboard campaign that cries "I hate Steven Singer" as an example of how we can always turn to Love.

Live, original music by Dawn Hiatt.

Rev. Dave Schpok anchors the celebration in meditation and Practical Prayer.

We gather every Sunday from 10:30-11:45 at the CA House, 118 S. 37th Street on the UPenn campus (bet. Chestnut & Sansom).

Silent meditation begins at 10:10.

Each Celebration is a blend of inspiring words, personal spiritual practice and fellowship with bright Lights of Divine Love just like you. It's a hands-on approach to make the concepts of Practical Spirituality accessible in a powerful and personal way.
