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.

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is an open and loving community of spiritual adventurers, welcoming each person to experience their Divine nature in an empowering space of unconditional Love.

We are lighting the world in love, teaching universal spiritual principles to inspire all people to create their own lives in wisdom, peace, prosperity and joy.

Sunday Dec. 11: "Misplaced Faith"

adam web tree

Our biggest fear may be that God will not answer our prayers. This fear of lack is nothing more than the belief that God is not all we claim: Omniscient, Omnipotent, & Omnipresent. Rev. Dave Schpok explores how we allow fear to become our faith.

Live, original music by Adam Web.

Each celebration is anchored in meditation and Practical Prayer.

Every Sunday

We gather 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.
