PLAY: Sunday’s theme for Church of the Garden, July 7, 2013

Play is a spiritual quality that expresses our creativity and celebrates the pleasures of being alive.  Brene Brown identified play as “a critically important quality of whole-hearted living”.   Did you know there is a National Institute of Play?

This Sunday at Church of the Garden we consider Play as a restorative, spiritual practice.

Alex Morten, certified leader of InterPlay, will bring a taste of this joyful, simple, creative way to experience more ease and lightness in your body.  Alex_Interplay


I’m also thrilled that Lydiyah and Bobby Miller will be bringing gifts of song!

Barbara Brady will bring the Message and I’ll join in with an opening piece celebrating Otters!

Sunday services begin at 11:00 am and you’re welcome to come as early as 10:00am to enjoy silence in the garden or along the Tranquility Trail.

We look forward to being with you.

From my heart,


About Rev. Michelle K. Smith

Rev. Michelle Smith followed her own heart's calling for a Sunday morning service that is uplifting yet restorative and contemplative; where she could explore and celebrate the wisdom teachings from the world's ancient traditions as well as New Thought; a service that draws meaning from the natural world and grounds us in a sense of place here in the Southern Appalachians. She is grateful knowing that other hearts are calling for this service as well.
