Sunday’s Program and Reading:

Speaker: C3 member Nelleke Knarr has a rich and diverse spiritual background, with roots in Catholicism, New Age, New Thought, and feminist spirituality. Her perspective is strongly informed by her training and work as a musician, music teacher, and music therapist. She draws inspiration from nature, poetry, and relationships.

Musician: Matt Gabriel is a singer/songwriter who has spent over a decade writing and performing music around the country–the quality of folk and blues you would expect from an artist who grew up between Chicago and Detroit. He has played for us several times.

Music: Matt Gabriel Gathering

Reading/Teaching: Nelleke Knarr

I know this house, and this horizon, and this world I have made.
I know this silence and the particular treasures and terrors of this belonging,
but I cannot know the world to which I am going.
I have only this breath and this presence for my wings
and they carry me in my body whatever I do from one hushed moment to another. I know my innocence and I know my unknowing, but for all my successes I go through life like a blind child who cannot see, arms outstretched trying to put together a world.

And the world works on my behalf catching me in its arms when I go too far. I don’t know what I could have done to have earned such faith.

When one thing dies all things die together, and must live again in 

a different way, when one thing is missing everything is missing, and must be found again in a new whole and everything wants to be complete, everything wants to go home. 

– David Whyte, What I Must Tell Myself


he stairs are your mentor of things to come,
the doors have always been there to frighten you and invite you, and the tiny speaker in the phone is your dream-ladder to divinity.

-David Whyte, Everything Is Waiting for You
