“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” Galileo
No honest question can be blasphemous, no true doubt can be sinful, and an inability to uncritically accept prepackaged answers to preapproved questions isn’t a barrier to communion with the fullness of Life. To be “alive”, religion must be always evolving. The gods of Olympus gave way to the God of Heaven, and for some, the God of Heaven gave way to an infinite, omnipresent Power. When we embrace something new, or a new idea of something old, that may not be the end of the journey. As long as we seek, we are bound to find new discoveries and that’s what keeps religion powerful and meaningful in every age.
There is but one Mind, one Law, one Principle, one Substance in the universe and I am one with all there is, and so it is that my faithful doubts, my honest questions, and my endless search for Truth are all part of a rewarding, expanding, and joyous spiritual journey. Amen.

Spirituality is both a personal and a shared experience; it is private and communal. The old religious dogmas, hierarchies, creeds, and antiquated vocabularies are increasingly irrelevant to 21st century seekers of truth; but the shared spiritual journey still has value.
Can we move beyond the irrelevance of outmoded religion and still form spiritual communities, embrace life enhancing rituals, enjoy sacred stories, and ask honest questions that may not have preapproved answers? One liberal minister thinks that such spiritual communities are possible and needed and he has devoted his life to creating such communities.
A humanistic spirituality can still embrace mystery and wonder, hope and peace, possibilities and wisdom, and as we offer such spirituality, a new generation may discover that houses of worship can still have meaning.

Sunshine Cathedral & CPK!
Sunshine Dining (Day or Night)
On the third Wednesdays in October, November, and December Sunshine Cathedral will benefit when you eat at California Pizza Kitchen on Federal Hwy in Fort Lauderdale (2301 N. Federal).
How it works: On Oct 15th, Nov 19th, and Dec 17th have lunch or dinner (any time of the day) at CPK on North Federal (or even carry out!) and present the Sunshine Cathedral flier, and 20% of the cost of your meal will be donated by CPK to Sunshine Cathedral!
That’s how easy it is. We’re going to eat anyway, so on the third Wednesday of the month, just make sure that one of your meals is at CPK and present the Sunshine Cathedral flier and you will be supporting your church. Eat alone, take a date, go as a group, have lunch or dinner, dine-in or carry out…just eat and by eating your church will benefit. Mark your calendar now and plan to enjoy good food at CPK once each month for the rest of year (Oct 15th, Nov 19th, and Dec 17th).
