Innovation: re-imagine and reinvent how we can connect and communicate with each other and how we get in touch with the Divine within and without on our life's journey
Acceptance: being open and welcoming to explorers of all faiths, beliefs, and traditions.
Understanding: meeting each of our members and friends right where they are on their path to spirit.
The Tree of Life Interfaith Temple is an engaging, supportive spiritual community offering a welcoming home to seekers from all faith traditions.
With love and respect, we embrace the wisdom and experiences of all traditions to create inspiring, educational, and innovative programs to illuminate and more deeply connect to the divine spark that lives within all of us. By redefining the nature of a passionate interfaith and interspiritual ministry and reimagining the meaning and impact of church, we explore and expand how we understand, experience, and connect to the Divine in these challenging times.
The Tree of Life Interfaith Temple is not anchored in any particular faith tradition but celebrates in equal measure the wisdom of all. In so doing, we offer moving services, enlightening classes, meaningful retreats, and engaging community outreach activities such as supporting the Souhegan Valley Interfaith Council to foster greater interspiritual connection, understanding, and harmony among all spiritual beings within our greater community.
Love, Compassion, Trust: Coming deeply from the heart in every contact and every engagement.
Action, Will, Discipline: Accomplishing what needs to be brought about, getting something done.
Balance: We recognize the necessity and value of both energies needed for the Dance of Will and Surrender with God: the Devotional, Faith-based, Trust, Surrender to God energy in addition to the Take Action, Discipline, Use One's Will energy, and we consciously cultivate balance and free choice to engage either energy as the situation may require.
Service: making a difference in all we do.
Inspiration: being attuned to the stirrings of the Divine and nurturing openness to pursue with joy wherever they may lead us.
