You Are Invited
“We meet in a circle to praise Unity…”
We are loosely-knit and loving community representing many spiritual traditions. We come together to honor the world’s sacred teachings and to celebrate our innate creativity as a form of worship. Everyone is welcome, whether long-time participant or newcomer. The Circle has met the first Sunday of every month since April, 1996. We will be celebrating our 15th anniversary in April, 2011.
Circle of Worship:
Each service begins with a candle-lighting ceremony where we pay homage to the One Source which inspires all faith and all sacred teachings. On our circular alter we place ten candles representing the Divine Feminine, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Indigenous and Native Traditions, All Other Faiths and a candle for all Pure Hearts who have carried the Light of Truth. Everyone is invited to participate in the lighting of the candles and, if inspired, to share something that relates to a particular candle. The tenth candle focuses our prayers for healing.
We recognize that each one of us possesses a spark of divine inspiration and a unique spiritual perspective. After the candle-lighting, there is creative activity around a specific theme announced in advance. As we meet in the holy circle and share our expressions in words, music, movement or images, we help each other manifest heaven on earth “peace by peace.”
Circle of Oneness:
In 2008 we began to celebrate a variation on the Circle of Worship - Circle of Oneness. Circle of Oneness honors the Creative Spirit exclusively. Participants are invited to make a Creative Offering from the heart based on a theme that is announced in advance.
What to bring to both Circles:
• Your own prayers, chants, songs and poems or pieces by others that you want to share.
• An inspiring story or insight
• A dance
• A musical instrument to play
• Mostly, bring an open mind and a tender heart!
First Sunday of every month, from 11 AM to 1 PM (Pot-luck brunch follows service.)
OneCircle Center, 3804 Littleton St, Silver Spring, MD 20906.
