Church plans plenty of activities this summer

The Center for Spiritual Living, Davis, 1715 Anderson Way, plans a full summer of activities, with music, a book signing, an animal blessing ceremony and several pre-service “play shops.”
On Sunday, July 28, at noon, the Rev. Gregory Toole will be the guest speaker. He was CSLD’s senior minister before moving on to an administrative position at Centers for Spiritual Living, in Golden, Colo. He will also be signing his new book, “A Simple Guide to Planetary Transformation,” following the service.
On Sunday, Aug. 4, at 10:30 a.m. is the second of the pre-service play-shops, “Dances of Universal Peace,” facilitated by practitioner Joyce Bahati. Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the dances blend chant, live music and movement.
Then at noon on Sunday, Aug. 4, will be guest speaker, Savanna Riker, the first International Youth Community Spiritual Leader for UCSL from 2002-2006. She became a licensed Religious Science practitioner three years ago, the youngest at Mile Hi Church in Denver, and is in her last year of ministerial school at Holmes Institute. She served at the SOM Russian Conference in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt 3 1/2 years ago. Last year she spent seven months living in Cairo, Egypt pursuing her passion for global ministry and expanding her vision to be a traveling minister.

The musical offering will be Kristi Matal, a vocalist, guitarist, and pianist, who has sung at New Thought churches in Northern California for many years. She was the conductor for the Sacramento Spiritual Life Center choir for five years. One of the highlights of her musical career was being a lead vocalist for the jazz/swing band, “Dutch Falconi and the Twisted Orchestra,” which performed theatrical jazz music at Sacramento clubs like Harlow’s and notable venues in San Francisco.
Sunday, Aug. 11, at noon, Carol Manson and pianist Reggie Graham will present “Divine Intuition,” a musical Sunday service featuring song, poetry, spoken word, dance and more.
Carol Manson won the ninth Independent Music Award VOX Pop Award for the single “Take My Hand, Precious Lord.” She also was in the cast for the musical “Hallelujah City” at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center and the Tower Theatre in Roseville. She also was a key performer at the 2011 Legislative Back To Session Bash. Graham has been teaching piano privately for more than 15 years and has been a music professor at Sacramento City College for 12 years. As a member of the award-winning CSUS Jazz Ensemble, Graham was twice awarded Outstanding Soloist at the Reno Jazz Festival.
Sunday, Aug. 18, at 11 a.m. there will be a pre-service ceremony called a “Companion Animal Blessing,” led by CSLD practitioner Karen Vanderford. She asks that participants not bring a pet but instead bring an item that represents the pet such as a collar, photo or favorite toy. She intends to honor the special place animals have in our hearts with several readings of poetry and short stories that are animal inspired. This ceremony is the beginning of animal ministry at CSLD.
Sunday, Aug. 25, at 10:30 a.m., the third in the series of pre-service play-shops will be presented. Titled “Turn Your Hobby Into Your Spiritual Practice,” this play-shop is facilitated by practitioner Debra Taylor, who discovered the peace engendering aspect of the activity of spinning yarn (as put forth by Gandhi) during a stressful time of her life.
