Hey Wacco's,

Here's a way to get a dose of spiritual food for thought, without making your carbon footprint much larger; by listening to the service on the radio. It's on the web here; or 8:30 Sunday mornings on KSRO 1350 AM, in the Sonoma County area; KSRO is also online.

My son and I had a delightful time sharing Thanksgiving there with the other members; and I do go for the social connection from time to time.

Still I like having the ritual, and routine of finding tools to re-tune my spirit; which I can do in my PJ's, from a warm bed.

I put the newspaper down for 30 minutes and practice the art of active listening. This is a challenge for me; because the material is so rich, I tend to find myself thinking about it, when Edward is on to the next gem.

With so many visual, and other distractions in the world these days; I like slowing down for a bit. By aiming my senses through just listening, as I absorb the information; it improves my concentration; and thus retention.

Thanks to the CSL Santa Rosa, for making the radio, internet; and TV broadcasts happen for those unable to attend, or who just like the idea of Green Church.

I hope others will contribute to keep the airing of your services on KSRO going. Especially after the great loss of funds from the recent embezzlement.

They also have a beautiful bookstore at the church, and online bookstore:

The line I wrote down from today's radio show, " Imagine a world that works for everyone."

From the website:

Our theme for 2012 is "Sowing Seeds of Greatness." Join us for a year of exploring A New Design For Living.


I call upon all of you to share in this, and add to our region, country, and global community; by instilling what works of this for you in your life; and through your participation with the Occupy movement.

Please send me your top 5 ideas for a community, country and world that works for everyone. www.campaignforpeace.org
