Our C&F theme for this season is the Holy Currencies, based on a book by Eric Law that talks about circulation of blessings - given and received! We are exploring these currencies in Worship this season (Oct 24 - Nov 21) as well.
When these currencies move freely and flow together - life is full, meaning is found, and spirits grow, individuals, families and churches thrive. If any of these currencies are blocked - there is less curiosity, collaboration is harder, and scarcity brings fear.
Each week during Spirit Academy, we'll be exploring one of the currencies. We'll be uploading what we'll be doing before each Sunday for those who are unable to attend in person!

As each person offers what they can, it is the sharing that creates the magic of wellness, relationship and flow in our community.

This story is about 6 blind men who go feel an elephant since they've never "seen" one before. They each touch the elephant in different parts and afterwards they all have different descriptions of the elephant..

When We Are Kind
This is a beautiful story which celebrates simple acts of everyday kindness and encourages us to explore how we feel when we receive acts of kindness in our lives. It reminds us to be kind to ourselves and others which promotes a gracious approach to leadership and healthy relationships.
Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?
This story takes us through the ebb and flow of paying it forward. Paying in appreciation and kindness goes a long way to making this world a happier place for everyone, including ourselves. It expresses how spreading kindness can impact someone's life and that when we fill someone's bucket we our filling our OWN bucket too!
