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.

Practical Spirituality

We each create our life according to our beliefs using the proven techniques of Practical Spirituality. It’s not a secret! These keys to healing, harmony and the life we desire are the same principles used in every religion and spiritual practice all over the world, summarized and explained in clear, everyday language free of dogma or limitation.

Sunday Celebration

August 3: Good Behavior?

The ways we act - and interact with others - make up a key part of how we feel, about our happiness or lack of it. Rev. Bill Marchiony talks about the choices we make and how they affect our lives and relationships.

Live, original music by Music Director John Francis.JohnFrancis-Adrienne-sm

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

We gather every Sunday from 10:30-11:45 at the Playground @ the Adrienne, 2030 Sansom Street (bet. 20th & 21st).

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.
