This I Believe, This I Practice, Sunday, October 26 at 10:30 a.m.

The daughter of an ordained Baptist minister, Colleen Beale spent her childhood growing up in the church.  Colleen watched her parents as they did mission work in Mexico, helped a colony of lepers off in distant lands, and engaged her in civic duties here at home.  Through these experiences she developed a strong understanding of OTHER, and as a global community, how we could help each other.  As an adult Colleen looked to find something that would feed her civic duty as well as her soul and thus began the next chapters of her spiritual journey.  Coming to the realization that no one religion matched her spiritually, she set off to create a spiritual practice that worked for her.  Join Colleen at 10:30 a.m. in the Bernstein Room to hear more of her story. Childcare provided.
