America’s spiritual



destiny to be discussed

America’s spiritual destiny will be discussed at a Baha’i presentation at the Glenwood Springs Library at noon, Saturday, April 20.



“We will be investigating proofs and evidence from the Bible, Native American prophecy and other world religions,” said spokesperson Adam Sippola.

Sippola said the goal for America’s founders was to pave the way for the establishment of the kingdom of God on earth. This desire is reflected in the nation’s seals, which are printed on the back of $1 bills.

“Why is the Star of David above the eagle’s head?” Sippola said. “Why is the great pyramid with the eye of enlightenment on the capstone?”

A question-and-answer session follows Sippola’s presentation. For more information, call 945-8238.

Flower communion held

Michael Corrigan leads the annual Flower Communion at the Glenwood Springs Unitarian Church at 10 a.m. Sunday, April 21. The Flower Communion was conceived by Czech Unitarian minister Norbert Capek, and is a long treasured and celebrated event. Each person is asked to bring a flower to place in a common vase as an expression of community. At the end of the service, each person takes a different flower as a gift that represents another person’s humanity.
