Moving Coast-to-Coast

I have come to understand and embrace that accepting "The Call of Ministry" is a spiritual covenant of consciously choosing to live in the mystery of Life and continuously learning to walk by faith rather than by sight. My experience is that the more I trust Life to unfold Itself as the calling of my Soul in ways & forms that I cannot yet imagine, the more magnificent life becomes.

After manifesting spiritual clarity that I was complete at Sierra Center for Spiritual Living in Grass Valley, CA and that it was time for me to step out in faith and create the opening for newness to unfold, on January 8th I resigned as the Senior Minister of Sierra Center effective February 28th.

Again I experienced that when I am clear Spirit moves with equal clarity and speed. I was unanimously selected as the new Senior Minister at Columbia Center for Spiritual Living in Columbia, MD. on January 29th.

So now I am stepping out in faith as I begin the process of navigating our coast-to-coast move. I admit it, I was a bit naive in thinking the financial reference in my memory of moving from North Carolina to California had some actual relevance; turns out... not so much :)

In 1998 moving coast-to-coast cost me around $2,000.00. The current estimates from my research this past week indicate it's going to cost $8,000 - $15,000. I'm asking for your generosity in manifesting the necessary funds to get us there. My commitment is to provide absolutely transparent accountability of how the funds are used and if there is any money left over, to engage everyone who donated in a collaborative decision-making process of where to donate the balance of the fund.

Debra, Taz, Thor, and I are blessed by your love and support. Thank you for supporting our spiritual journey of YES to LIFE.

In the service of Love,
Rev. Rafe
