A quote chosen by a member for discussion each Sunday.

November 17 “The task of religion is not to turn us into proper believers; it is to deepen the personal within us, to embrace the power of life, to expand our 
consciousness, in order that we might see things that eyes do not normally see.” ~ John Shelby Sprong, Eternal Life: A New Vision


November 10 “A keeper of monkeys told the monkeys they could have three chestnuts each morning and four each night. They complained angrily that three in the morning was not enough. The keeper then said they could have four in the morning and three at night. At this they were pleased. The number of chestnuts was the same but their wishes had been taken into consideration.”  ~ from China Chuang Tze – c. 400 B.C
