Why Can’t Everyone Think Exactly Like Me?—Approaching the world with curiosity, not judgment.

Have you ever found yourself in judgment about the nonsensical or ridiculous beliefs held by others? Who hasn’t, right? If so, join us this Sunday, May 28th, as Christine Renée Monks uplifts you, makes you laugh, and invites you to think (or re-think) your approach to others with beliefs significantly different from yours. If we each are unique manifestations of the One, then it should not be this difficult to see the divinity in others—and yet, it is. Join us as we explore oneness, and Christine shares her perspective as a transgender woman maintaining her balance while seeking connection to others.

All are welcome. Stay for our community lunch directly afterwards! We'll also have an in-person Deep Dive at 12:30 pm with Christine Renée Monks to explore our Sunday message further.

If you are unable to physically attend, we will also live-stream our gathering on our Facebook page starting at 10:30am MT. Make sure you turn on notifications for Althea on Facebook so you can be notified as soon as we go live. During the gathering, we invite you to submit your prayers, comments, and feedback.
