This service offers a time for meditation, reflection, and renewal through music, brief words, and silence. Come sing, light a candle, and nurture your spirit during this nontraditional worship experience - and bring a friend! There will be a rehearsal from 6 to 6:45 pm for singers who would like to learn the harmonies to the chants we will sing.
We are also looking for instrumentalists interested in participating, but would need to know in advance who is able to come. For more information, please contact Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger at 603-410-4830 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For authentic connection to thrive there needs to be trust. Relationships depend on trust. What does it mean to trust something or someone? How do we learn to trust ourselves? How do we recover trust after it has been misplaced or lost?

As our personal and professional environments become ever more complex and chaotic, many of us are experiencing stress and even hyper-stress. Uncertainty and ambiguity easily creates anxiety in our minds.
Research has shown that while a certain amount of stress can be a motivator, excessive stress leads to distraction and performance anxiety, stifling our creativity, our productivity, and the quality of our decision making.
The good news is that stress can be reduced, and mental wellness improved through mindfulness practices. It is possible to handle leadership challenges effectively with a relaxed and positive mental attitude.
This session will draw on neuroscience research and experiential exercises based on Eastern mindfulness practices. Participants will have a useful “tool kit” for application in their personal lives, at church and at work.
Join us for this enlightening session with mindfulness instructor, Home Nguyen who will have preached the sermon during the morning service. He will guide us through exercises that have been instrumental to the leadership development of his life coaching and executive coaching practice.
