Dear <<First Name>>.
As 2018 comes to a close it's time for review and contemplation. Our Center for Spiritual Living Graham 2018 had (and continues to have) an amazing year in so many ways. We welcomed our staff minister Rev. Jane Burnette who has been spearheading our Youth Program that is now active every Sunday. Under the inspired guidance of our CORE Council we have paid off our mortgage!! And despite some unexpected repairs (lawnmower, wifi router) we are ending the last 4 months of this year with net income, thanks to the continued support of our "member-owners" and the generosity of visitors. We continue our wildly successful "Unexpected Income Program" that has netted it's participants close to $15,000.00 in unexpected income since the end of September! Our grounds and buildings look great thanks to the many loving hours donated by volunteers, especially our beloved Bob - a member of our Center since 1987!!
So watch out 2019 here we come!
We are planning a fantastic retreat at the Avila Retreat Center for May 2019, and are looking forward to the continued offerings of exciting and uplifting classes. For example, in January we will start the 10-week "Practical Mysticism" class, based on the book "Entering the Castle" by Caroline Myss.
We are also starting a collaboration with Alamance Community College to be a site for some of their Life Enrichment classes. One example is a 8-week workshop series from the Institute for Noetic Sciences, facilitated by David Grinstead - "Conscious Aging".
Keep a look out for more monthly updates.
Knowing the highest and best is unfolding for each of us, for all of us, for our Center, our community, our planet... May 2019 be our brightest and most inspiring yet!!
