7-8:30 Sun: What Money Can Teach Us

Dear Friends:

Money is a powerful force in this world, and there are few things we spend more time thinking about. Often our relationship to money is uncomfortable – it can generate a lot of suffering. If we're not worried about meeting our needs, we're struggling with the costs of what we want. Oddly, with all this attention we pay to our finances, we're shy in this society about discussing it with others, so we do that suffering in silence. But a clear-headed examination of money can teach us a lot.

This Sunday, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, we'll take a look at what money is to us and how we can use our relationship with it to grow spiritually. I hope you'll join us and bring a friend.

Warmly,
Rebecca

PS: Last time I was there, I brought a bottle for only one person. This time, there'll be one for everyone! And here's a note from Ron:

Members interested in tabling the Buena Vista United Methodist Church's Spring Festival Bazaar on Sunday, May 4, 2014, please email Ronald at mrtoth@yahoo.com. In your email, please include your name, phone number, and preferred time in one-hour shifts (e.g., 1:30-2:30 pm). He will put together a list and distribute it to all volunteers on or before Thursday, May 1.
Members who purchased a ticket for the chicken teriyaki box, or who simply plan to attend the bazaar, please consider stopping by the Alameda Sangha table and enjoying your meal there. At least a few of us are planning to have lunch there at 1 pm. All are welcome.
