Happy New Year!

So much has happened at the Center For Spiritual Living. Our building is coming along, beautifully.

Sheet rock went up.

Gorgeous mosaic images were created for the entrance wall of Center.

Both mosaics in place and they look incredible!

At the same time that all of this is going on, inside – elaborate preparations for the stain-glass display on the alter wall.

Steven lays out the pattern for the stained glass.

Crazy Cool!


And as if this is not enough miraculous activity, in the mean time our congregation is growing and expanding and services are held every Sunday.

stories, poems … spoken thoughts.

So that is it for now, sorry if you didn’t see your photo here, I wanted to use them all! There are a lot of wonderful photos on our Facebook page: Center for Spiritual Living East Hawaii.

I leave you with a little poem by William Arthur Ward;
“Another fresh new year is hereā€¦ Another year to live! To banish worry, doubt, and fear, to love and laugh and give!”

Oh! And I almost forgot,


… ever important, saves us having to walk over to the office!

… and one more thing, we actually did have an inspector on site and everything meets with his approval …

The Church Cat.

… he was a little surprised to find so much finished.
