“…people have been made miserable…because in their fear and ignorance they accepted the teachings of dogmatic theology about sin and a future state…” Horatio W Dresser
Religion is least useful, least helpful, least noble when it is a reaction to fears that religion itself instilled. I have no interest in “fire insurance” religion warning of cosmic dangers and offering “salvation” from them. I want a religion based on indomitable hope, on an awareness that life is innately good, on a commitment to inner peace, on a realization that genuine love is divine, on the recognition that God is omnipresent and we therefore can never be separated or lost from God. Religion can be a tool to help us get the most from this life rather than a gamble that may pay off in the next.
I choose to love life and live it joyously for there is but one Mind, one Law, one Principle, one Substance in the universe and I am one with all that is. 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).
