Simply Splendid Services draw from basic principles of life, those that affirm and promote the special uniqueness present in each individual, the spectacular diversity inherent in every community, and the divine spirit encompassing all of life.
Scheduled according to the rhythm of the changing seasons, designed in the spirit of traditional symbols, and tied to the topics of the current times, Simply Splendid Services hope to foster spiritual growth, to tutor spiritual guidance, and to promote spiritual health.
Each service provides a time to come together and a place to gather ‘round – sitting in silence, speaking in depth, and focusing on the spiritual center of our collective core of being.
And each service shows us the way to return to our lives, carrying with us the light of individual illumination, the warmth of communal fellowship, and the spark of the numinous sacred.
