Sunday, May 1 - 11:30 am Regular service with Rev. Jean Wahlstrom, Cultivating Spirituality Gardening can be back-breaking, aching-muscle work - or as simple as watching your neighbor's perennials bloom. Regardless, there is a lot of overlap between spirituality and cultivation. Two quotes for thought: "Flowers unfold slowly and gently, bit by bit in the sunshine. A soul, too, ...unfolds in its own perfect timing" (the Findhorn Community), and "More grows in the garden than the gardener knows s/he has planted" (Spanish proverb). Music - Lynn Walker
