Get To Give Drive 2016 – Creating A Bigger Pie!

By Events, NewsOne Comment

The 2016 “Get to Give” Drive is our opportunity as a community to indicate how much money we will commit for 2016. Bodhi’s operational spending plan is based on what is committed and collected. By making a commitment, Bodhi has an indication of funding for 2016. Our commitment helps to fund the work of our spiritual community—transforming lives within, among and beyond Bodhi Spiritual Center through Sunday Celebration Services, Youth & Family Programming, Spiritual Education, Small Group Life and emerging Outreach.

The #DriveTo75

By Blogs, Events, News5 Comments

I LOVE POTENTIAL! You must first know that about me. I love celebrating what is and then creating what can be. I love witnessing the wake up of someone to their magnificence. I love witnessing someone’s discovery of their unique purpose on this planet. I love witnessing the stretch of what’s possible. #Driveto75 is exactly that. It’s a conversation that started at Bodhi last Sunday. #Driveto75 is a special intention to kick off a response to a financial gap we are currently experiencing. Read More

Annual Meeting Announcement: Our New Spiritual Director, Reverend Lola Wright

By Blogs, News19 Comments

Thanks to all who attended the Annual Meeting this past Sunday, and for those of you who were not able to join us, I would like to make sure that I provide the community with some details and background on a major decision the Core Council announced at the meeting.

Mark Anthony Lord announced his departure in July, we communicated to the community that an Interim Spiritual Council was being assembled, in order to hold the high spiritual watch as well as to guide Sunday messages and schedule speakers. This we believed would provide continuity and stability to our Sunday programming. This decision and the move to provide dynamic speakers for our Sunday talks, proved to be something that was well received and appreciated by our community. Read More
