Flames of FaithLighting the Flames of Faith

Each week we light the Flames of Faith to acknowledge that all people and all faiths come from the One Power/Love/Intelligence, which we call Spirit or God.

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is an open and loving community of spiritual adventurers, welcoming each person to experience their Divine nature in an empowering space of unconditional Love.

We are lighting the world in love, teaching universal spiritual principles to inspire all people to create their own lives in wisdom, peace, prosperity and joy.

Sunday Mar 18: "What If and Why Not"

ginger coyle We live in an Infinite universe, in which anything is possible. In many instances, though, we are faced with the limitations of what we already know is possible. Rev. Bill Marchiony leads an exploration of the ways these two questions can help us move from wherever we are to a richer and more joyous experience of life.

Live, original music by Ginger Coyle.

Rev. Dave Schpok anchors the celebration in meditation and Practical Prayer.

Every Sunday

We gather from 10:30-11:45 at the CA House, 118 S. 37th Street on the UPenn campus (bet. Chestnut & Sansom).

Silent meditation begins at 10:10.

Each Celebration is a blend of inspiring words, personal spiritual practice and fellowship with bright Lights of Divine Love just like you. It's a hands-on approach to make the concepts of Practical Spirituality accessible in a powerful and personal way.


Saturday April 28 Wokshop: Highwatch - the Teaching of Emma Curtis Hopkins

Connect with the power and mystical revelations of this New Thought pioneer.

10am - 4:30pm in University City

There is mystical power in Emma’s language, as it goes to a place within that is deeper than the intellect, beginning a process of profound transformation. Through this powerful workshop, you will experience the conviction and energy of Emma. Highwatch is a breakthrough work that will allow you to step through the veil to a deeper understanding of Principle and of yourself. You will embody the same consciousness that inspired her students to change the world, through the founding of Religious Science, Unity, Divine Science, and many more.
