You know how sometimes you are so busy doing cool stuff that you don’t have time to write about it? That’s the story of the last several months here at Mosaic. We’ve completed our amazing window, added art to our walls, brought in some new members, and tomorrow we’ll be holding another “Pathway to Mosaic” membership class. Weekly music and game nights attract lively crowds, and our Sunday services continue to be uplifting and thought-provoking. We are active on Facebook and working to update and expand the offerings here on our website. I’m especially grateful for the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of our all-volunteer “staff,” who chair committees, handle our A/V equipment, host meetings and events, bring refreshments, create the content for our Bulletin and website, and, of course, BREW THE COFFEE! A basic tenet of Mosaic membership is to “participate in the life of the church.” I am pleased and proud to say our members all do that in a big way, and for that reason, there is abundant life in this church!

It is an honor and a delight to preside over Mosaic’s 12th “Earth Day Birthday”! Mosaic has been transforming lives through compassion, service, generosity, and respectful relationships for 12 years now, and we celebrate proudly and with deep gratitude for all the blessings that have come our way in that time. Our new home looks better every day, especially with the gorgeous “stained glass” mural coming into being on our front windows. The mural celebrates life, nature, beauty, and all of the world’s diverse spiritual paths. It also celebrates the lives of three of Mosaic’s “founding mothers,” Gloria Park, Miriam Withers and Mary Smithwick. I hope you’ll join us on Sunday — it’s going to be an amazing day!

It’s been a busy and exciting year at Mosaic, and it’s only March! Our new home is starting to come together. A beautiful new pulpit is under construction and will add a nice “churchy” touch to our worship space when complete. We have already enjoyed many thought-provoking and inspiring Sunday services this year, and we have more to come. Plans are in the works to offer a “Pathway to Mosaic Membership” class very soon, and we’re working on some social justice activities to take place in our new space. I envision our new home at Justin Square as more than just a place to meet on Sundays. I hope we will hold meetings, social gatherings, covenant groups, and community events here, and become an ever more vibrant and visible asset to West Volusia. What do YOU want to do, or see, or experience in our new space? Let’s talk about it!
