Jazz Prayer

Friday, November 15 at 7:30 pm

Faith — If I believe in God I have faith in God, right? Maybe. Maybe not. Belief is a product of the mind, and therefore is dependant upon what the mind knows or thinks it knows. Faith is a product of the spirit. Beliefs come and go, particularly in times of crisis, but real faith is not so fickle. Come explore "Faith" through Jazz and word with us. Doors open 7:10 with refreshments; music begins at 7:30 p.m. This gathering is designed to be meaningful and comfortable for people who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious” and for people who love jazz music performed well.  All are welcome.

Think about these changes in your habits: Read more »
