Share your Reflections on the Monks and the World Peace Mandala

In February, the Tibetan Monks created The World Peace Mandala at Florida CraftArt. How did the experience affect you? Have you written about it...a poem, perhaps a song? Have you created an artwork inspired by the event? Did you spread peace in your world?

We'd like to hear about it! Come and share your art it inspired, Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m. 
Conversation leaders will be Maureen McDole, poet and founder of Keep St. Pete Lit and Rev. Jack Donovan of the Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg. 
Here’s a limerick Rev. Donoavan wrote about the experience: 
Tibetan Monk Epiphany to an Irish Monk in Limerick
Once a mandala for peace
Was created with effort and ease;
Now that it’s done,
It’s also gone -
In undoing given release.

Parents' Covenant Group

Saturday, April 1, 2017 - 11:00am - 1:00pm
Location: Downstairs Classroom, Media Room, Treuthart Room

The Parents’ Covenant Group is a chance to get to know a small group of people on a deeper level. We explore life’s questions, joys, and troubles. Topics are both parent-y and non-parent-y: our identity as parents; dealing with “The Big Questions” with our kids; responding to change; and much more.

We’ll meet upstairs at church from 11am - 1:00pm on the first Saturday of each month. Free childcare will be provided downstairs. Our past groups had many meaningful, funny, and moving moments together!

For more information, please visit and ask to be added to the group, or contact Morgan or Michael.
