Spiritual Message By:  Rev. Dr. Katherine Greysen
“It Is Not What We Do, It Is How We Do It.”

Often we think we are doing the “right” thing and then find that it goes all wrong, or it blows up in our face! This talk is about staying strong in conviction and faith as we move through the world.

Kate has lived all over the US, originally from MN and has been in the Asheville area since 2010.  She has been with Science of Mind for over 20 years and was just ordained a Science of Mind minister in November 2017.  She left academic administration to teach Communication Studies at Haywood Community College and is so very happy to be giving talks on what she loves… communication and self-reflection.

Spiritual Message By: Debra Wolf
“What Is The Baha’i Faith?”

Baha’u’llah (1817-1892), the Founder of the Baha’i Faith, centered on the principle of the oneness of humanity, offer us hopeful new ways to view our place and purpose in the world. We will talk about the history and principles of the Baha’i Faith, the spiritual vision brought by Baha’u’llah and the practical approaches the Bahai’ community is engaged in to help bring this vision to reality.

Grant and Debbie have recently moved to Franklin from Newark, Delaware where they both worked at the University of Delaware teaching English to foreign students.  This work has given them the opportunity to live overseas for brief periods of time, something for which they feel very fortunate.  Grant loves to spend time gardening and singing.  Debbie has recently discovered an unexpected joy in line dancing and is always happy when telling a story to a listening crowd.  Both have been Baha’is for over half their lives.

Spiritual Message By:  Kim Webster
“Fulfillment – Keys To Ending Suffering”
Where ever we are currently in our life experience, there are always tools & opportunities to experience greater relationships, happiness, peace and joy.  True fulfillment flowers from our inner state
and moves into the world around us.  

Kim Webster likes to think of herself as a “Jill-of-All-Trades-And-A-Master-of-Fun”.  Kim has taught herself and others around the globe not to be defined by Life’s experiences but to be expanded by them.  Chuckling at oneself, after all, is an important part of moving thought life masterfully.
