Congratulations to Pastor Carolyn and daughter Joanna Paun. Joanna, who in December 2022 was recognized as the California School Board Member of the Year, was recently named Woman of the Year in California Assembly District 12. Joanna is being recognized by the State Assembly today and will be addressing that body this morning! Carolyn and one of her granddaughters, Juliana, will be accompanying Joanna.


A Reflection For This First Day of Spring 202

In this time of anticipated spring let us allow ourselves to extend the anticipation—to value the time of budding before blooming, of seeding before sprouting.

This is a time of revelation: the revealing of that which is eternal, which we see every year, but still need to be reminded to see it in a new way.

There is also the revelation of that which is new. Every spring we encounter something never before seen. It is that very newness which embodies hope and potential for the wholeness which is yet to be.

Let us allow spring to unfold slowly that we may appreciate the true mystery of rebirth and renewal.
