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

August 2: Not My Job

Ginger CoyleThere are some things we can control. Other things we have to let go of, and turn over to the infinite. Many of us have found that trying to grab for control of something can create results that ranging from awkward to catastrophic. Rev. Bill Marchiony opens an exploration of how we know which is which, and what steps we can take next.

Live, original music by Ginger Coyle.

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).

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.
