Centering Space Appeal Letter Summer 2018

 . . . where people come to listen to their heart
and hear the voice of God.

Dear Friends of Centering Space,

As we celebrate our 15th year, we delight in feeling God’s abundant love. If you have had the blessing of attending a prayer circle, a program, a retreat or just being still in the peacefulness of sacred presence, you know the spirit of our ministry.

As a spiritually oriented nonprofit, we depend on the charity of donors to keep growing. Our ministry of presence and hospitality is expanding therefore costs are keeping pace. Your generous response to this appeal will be a blessing to others. Please be aware that scheduling a monthly donation is a welcome option.

Truly God is in this place, inviting us to welcome and join with others in prayer, reflection and storytelling. Each time we gather your intentions are remembered in prayer. As always, you are   invited to stop by for refreshment and a visit.

I have been attending weekly prayer circle at Centering Space for over 9 years and have never lost my enthusiasm for Centering Space which gives me my weekly spirituality boost and peace of mind. What makes Centering Space so inviting is that it is truly an open and safe space where each person’s beliefs and traditions are respected.

Now in my 80th year, life is good. I am blessed to be a recovering alcoholic who hasn’t had a drink in 37 years and is in a same sex relationship with Richard for 56 years. I am able to provide care for Richard who suffers from both Parkinson’s and a stroke. I credit Centering Space for playing a major role in my ongoing serenity.

 I take great pleasure in passing on to others the joy I get from my weekly prayer circle. Thank you, Sister Carol and Betsy, for being the nucleus that keeps this weekly gem continuing.                       Henry
