Wednesday Night Services




Every Wednesday night, we have a gathering to hear from (usually) four or five community members about what’s moving in the community and in our lives. Sometimes we engage in facilitated practice, too. Wednesday night services tend to be more casual than our Sunday services. Here are audio recordings from some of those services.

David Karchere led the online gathering this week. He began by showing a video, “Call in the Vastness.” David asked Bruce Campbell, Rachel Morrison and Oren Yakovee to speak on “What it means to me to have my heart and soul melted by the loving nature of Divine Presence.” We then broke into small groups to discuss an experience of the melting of our own heart and soul. When we came back to the full group, David offered a meditation largely around the word “dignity.” He then opened it up to full-group discussion around that topic. David then invited us to sing “Evening Hymn.” We ended the evening with a slide show of photos that David took at sunset around the reservoir here in the valley, along with music and quotes from David. You can see that here.

Sece Foster focused this week’s online gathering. Gary Goodhue began the evening with a prayer. Sece introduced the theme: The signature vibration of beloved community. She played a song, “Blessing to the World,” by Karen Drucker. She introduced questions to discuss in listening pairs: What is self-love? What are the barriers to loving yourself? What could you do now to allow more self-love into your experience? And how might that shift things in your relationship to others? Afterward, she led us in a guided meditation that included the Ho’oponopono prayer directed toward ourselves. We ended the gathering with shares from the group as a whole.

Tom introduced the topic for the first breakout session: If someone wrote about my life, what impact might it have on the reader? Karen Boyett spoke about having reminders of what is most precious to us. She asked us to notice, when she says the words “sacred” and “precious,” where we feel it in our bodies. She introduced the next breakout session topic: What is most sacred and precious to you, and what could help you sustain that awareness in your day-to-day life? Marilyn Manderson then spoke about her relationship with God. She introduced the next discussion topic: How are you building beloved community? A final question for the whole group was: What more would you like to do for the whole community? Jane read the answers that were typed into the chat box.

Sece Foster offered an opening prayer for the evening, and Patrick Padden told a story related to our topic: reciprocity. Lana Roach introduced a question for us to ponder in listening pairs: Share an experience you’ve had of reciprocity and how it felt. Afterward, Ruth French spoke on the topic. We had another listening-pair time to explore an experience we’d had of the giving end of reciprocity and how that felt. Keahi then shared about the receiving end of reciprocity, and we broke into listening pairs again to share our experiences of that aspect. Next was a large-group sharing, answering the question, What is the gift that is truly yours to give now? Lana then concluded the evening with a blessing.

This Wednesday night online service was facilitated by Uma Faith. The evening began with the recording of Attunement Card 24, the Spirit of Purification. The topic for the evening was bringing an activating vibration in order to create a pattern that is creative. Patrick Padden shared a quick “human cymatics” experiment with us. Gary Goodhue talked about the meaning of the words “pater” and “mater.” After an introduction about the topic from Uma, we broke up into small groups to discuss an experience we’ve had in which a creative pattern easily and naturally unfolded. In a second round of small-group discussion, we talked about a pattern in our lives that is not working well; what activating vibration could we bring to allow a shift to happen, and how would that change the situation? We then ended with a whole-group discussion and a beautiful slide show from Spiritual Director David Karchere. Click here to see that video.

Spiritual Director David Karchere facilitated this online gathering. Sece Foster sang a chant she wrote called “Zin Uru.” David introduced the topic, having to do with our words, and how we say what we say, the tone, the energy, the body language. Same with our actions; they can be full of creative or destructive energy. We broke into small groups to discuss these questions: Name a time when someone said something to you that was hurtful or negative, and how did that feel? Name a time when someone said something positive to you, and how did that feel? After we returned from the small groups, Sece Foster, Jane Anetrini, Oren Yakovee and David talked about the factors involved in whether words have a negative or positive impact. We ended with a few full-group shares.

What destroys that atmosphere? When we came back into the main virtual “room,” several people shared about their small-group discussions. Jane closed the evening by reading an attunement card.

Oren Yakovee spoke briefly and shared a short excerpt from David Karchere’s Sunday talk, about being a lighthouse. We then broke into small groups to discuss a time when we had experienced self-discipline and what that felt like and from where the passion for that self-discipline came; how our lives would be different if we maintained sacred atmosphere; and what the benefits of that might be. We came back to the whole group to share insights. Another small-group time was centered around vulnerability. After that, we came back to the full group and had a few more shares to wrap up the evening.

We then got into listening pairs and typed those encouraging statements into our chat box, and each one reflected those words back to the other. Later, we typed the most important parts of those statements into the full-group chat box, and Melissa Jacobs and Bruce Campbell read those statements to the whole group.

Oren Yakovee was the facilitator for this online session. He started with a video of a song that has gone viral. The song is the classic Rogers and Hammerstein “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” sung by Captain Tom Moore, along with Michael Ball and the NHS Voices of Care Choir. Captain Tom is a 100-year-old man in the United Kingdom who walked around his garden to raise money for NHS Charities Together, which supports the NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients. Here’s the link to that video. After a quick check-in with the whole online group, Oren spoke about the concept of tensegrity and shared a video about that. We broke into small groups to ponder this: Name an experience where you held the sacredness of the field with both essences of Mother God and Father God. In a second round, we asked, What enhances the quality of your morphic field? How does that affect your service, your field, or your relationships? After that, we came back to the main “room” for individual shares. Our evening ended with healing chant.

For this week’s virtual gathering, Jane Anetrini began by playing a video by Sam Robson of the Christian hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour.” She read quotes by David Karchere and Oren Yakovee, and Keahi expanded on those themes, having to do with thinking as a spiritual practice and using our lives as opportunities for serivce. We then broke into small groups to explore these questions: What old thoughts are you tired of thinking? What are the thoughts that you have yet to allow yourself to think? What is the thought that is in the mind of God that is ready to be born into our collective awareness if we would but let it? (This part of the service was not recorded.) When we got back into the large gropu, several people shared what came up during that small-group exploration.

Uma introduced a film called Gratitude, created by Louie Schwartzberg with his stunning time-lapse photography and narrated by Brother David Steindl-Rast. Here’s a link to that film (shown during a TED Talk by Schwartzberg). We broke into small groups to explore a shift that we might like to make in our own lives. After coming back to the full “room,” the time together was ended by a shared prayer.

Keahi Ewa then led us in a moving meditation that culminated in the participants creating a river, with the river banks being a line of people on one side and a line on the other. Each person was invited to go down through the river, between the people on either side, symbolizing being bathed and receiving strength and blessing from those on the river banks. After that, we split into groups of three to talk about our experience of the river ceremony. Spiritual Director David Karchere closed the hour with a prayer.

This week’s Wednesday night service was focused by Uma Faith, who led us in a meditation and ceremony inspired by this week’s Pulse of Spirit. The ceremony was based on a Native American ritual called “The Giveaway,” the purpose of which is to restore balance and harmony in the tribe. After the meditation, those who felt ready to do so brought to an altar something that they were holding, such as unforgiveness or anger or resentment, to let it be burned up in the fire (candles) there. We broke into small groups and talked about our experiences of the ceremony, and later, some shared their experiences with the whole group.

Sece Foster facilitated this week’s gathering. She centered on work done by Dr. David R. Hawkins, an author whose published works focus on frequencies associated with consciousness and emotional states. We broke into dyads to discuss the ideas of power and force—specifically times when we’ve done many things with little result and times when we’ve done nothing outwardly but have seen significant change. We ended the evening by naming one thing in our lives around which we’d like to raise the frequency, then Sece led a prayer of attunement around those things, and we finished with a chant.

Uma Faith facilitated this evening’s service. She focused on themes from David Karchere’s talk on Sunday, such as the “escape velocity”—becoming free; being self-referential—asking how this affects me; reciprocity—seeing from another’s perspective; and the Golden Rule. After this introduction, she gave the floor to Courtney Bohlman, who recently traveled back to Ghana to visit a school where she taught a year ago to see how they were doing. Courtney talked about radical responsibility and the power of being ourselves showing up in our own power. After that, we broke into groups of three to discuss how we can take radical responsibility in our own lives and how we can cultivate the garden of consciousness here on Sunrise Ranch.

During this service, Keahi Ewa led us in a process to bring spiritual medicine to personal and global issues. Four people sat in the middle of our circle and expressed a desire to be supported in a particular challenge, which could be personal, work-related, social, spiritual, global or political, etc. Another group of people stood around that inner circle, bringing spiritual medicine such as compassion, understanding, courage or strength. The outer circle of people, representing the All That Is, chanted or sang. This process was repeated twice more. Because the people in the inner circles were not on microphone, their challenges and corresponding medicine could not be heard well, and in some cases, not at all.

I honor the divine in you.” The other person would accept that greeting and return it in their own words.

During this service, Jane Anetrini asked us to break into small groups. We were asked to each share one thing we did that day that was a gift to someone; it didn’t need to be big, but it needed to be something we uniquely could give in that moment and needed to be complementary to the situation. After we each shared that gift given, two or three people in the small group could share how that person has been a gift to them anytime in the past. After about a half-hour, we gathered into a large circle, and Jane called on people one at a time and asked five people to stand and say a word about that person, having us practice receiving appreciation from others. Unfortunately, because people were off-mic, the sound quality is not great during the ceremony.

At the beginning of this service, with all of us seated in a circle, Jane Anetrini asked us to complete one of the two following sentences: “What’s being activated in me is … ,” or, “What is passing away from me is … .” During a second round, Jane asked us to name a gift we have to give that we would like to magnify. We went around the room and responded. After that, Bob Ewing, Gary Goodhue, Uma Faith and Jane offered short talks around these ideas.

It was a small group for service the night after Christmas. Jerry Kvasnicka started us off with a song: “What Are You Doing Christmas Eve?” We sat in a circle and were asked us to bring to the group what was on our hearts. After that, Keahi Ewa led us in a short exercise to help us hold one another’s burdens, especially about what’s going on in the world (there were some spaces where a mic wasn’t used, so those parts were not recorded). Then those who had personal challenges were invited to share so that the group could help hold space for them. It was a warm and personal service.
