April 2015 Newsletter

  “Sooner or later all of the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood  …a man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.  The foundation of such a method is love.”          

        Martin Luther King   December 10, 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Speech

April 12 – DEEP AND WIDE   What spiritual needs and wants do you have as you get older?  Did you have a different idea when you were younger?  How have you changed and what might you do to nurture your spirit in the coming years?  We welcome the return of Rev. Teri Masters, an ordained Interfaith minister and a graduate of The Chaplaincy Institute in Berkeley, CA.  Teri is the speaker today. Teri is a chapel minister at Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes and is chaplain at San Pedro Hospice.  Rev. Teri is a pastoral counselor, specializing in grief and loss.  Rev. Teri and husband Dee have two adult daughters and one grandson.  Penny Hendricks will moderate.
