Dr Davies will offer reflections on the effectiveness of non-violent action in a world of darkness.
We are people from all walks of life who share a common understanding that we do not all have to think alike. The questions sometimes are more important than the answers, from religious beliefs to political persuasions, whom we love to what we eat, it all is equally respected. We like that we different, feeling diversity enriches humanity. We also are the only religiously liberal community anywhere in Texoma and draw from a dozen or more small towns in Southern Oklahoma and Northern Texas
More About Us
Living our lives with integrity, respectful of all people and committed to always exploring our individual paths of knowledge, service and spiritual growth is what we are doing. It happens in surprising ways – a sermon, a discussion, a potluck, an outreach project or a protest and sitting in stillness with a chapel full of kindred spirits. It can be hard to fathom how beautifully embracing a pluralistic view of life can bring such joy.

Once you visit, you may wish to become a bit more involved. It is a wonderful way to get to know people and to learn more about how a lay-led congregation manages itself.
We show up for different reasons, in casual dress, knowing we’ll be inspired, challenged, probably disagree with at least one thing we hear and still leave feeling good. We like options. Some start at 9 for an hour of quiet meditation. Some come at 10 for the Adult Forum. Most come to the Morning Assembly at 11:15, and everyone tarrying afterwards for Conversations & Calories (our answer to ‘coffee hour’) at 12:15.

We feel called upon to put our beliefs into action. One example is the Texoma Earth Day Festival which we started eleven years ago that has grown in popularity over the years It's day-long festival in a local park where hordes of people learn about all things environmental . It is hard work but rewarding because it takes our 7th Principal, "respect for the interdependent web of all existence", from words to actions.
More about Our Outreach
Ask any one of us, and you’ll learn how varied our stories are. This year’s Gay Pride day in Dallas included three from our congregation – daughter, mother, grandmother – proudly marching together and giving hundreds of high fives to the throngs celebrating the joy of diversity. It is one way to live our 1st principle "the inherent worth and dignity of every person".
