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.

Healing Celebration

Sunday November 29

JohnFrancis-Adrienne-smOn months with a fifth Sunday, we gather for a special Healing Celebration. Rev. Bill Marchiony and Rev. Dave Schpok lead us in a deep and profound process through which we all gain greater insight into our connection with Spirit. It includes a powerful interactive Healing Prayer for everyone present.

The talented and versatile John Francis sets the tone with with live original music.

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.
