The Hope Interfaith Center








Dear HIC Community,
We at the Hope Interfaith Center are saying good-bye to a very important colleague and friend who has been at HIC for over 8 years. Jody Schultz has moved upon a new personal path and now enjoying her Summer with her family, friends and Mother Nature.

Her position at the center as my personal assistant has been exceptional. With dedication and loyalty she has served not only me but all of our community.
As she moves on her personal path we at the center want to congratulate her and thank her for her extra efforts to help make HIC a successful place for people to come and grow spiritually.

Jody will still be participating at HIC.  You will see her continue to give her service to the center by helping out with the Children’s Oneness School as well participating in workshops and Spiritual Services.  So she is not going very far away!  Just a change in the office.  As she goes on her personal path Jody will continue to make an extra special mark on our Universe by doing her passion and feeling joy in her daily life.  So much in our world is changing as well at our beloved Temple.   

When you call the center now to make appointments for the second half of this year as well as when I open up my books for appointments this early Fall.  You will be greeted by two beautiful women who will help you in any way that is needed.   Rev. Jinelle Fryklund and Rev. Amy Oberle are the perfect candidates to fill a role that is so important at our center.  They are also dedicated and passionate and will be eager to help you in any way.  

We have a clear vision for the future of the center and having Jinelle and Amy with their goals and aspirations of helping others is a gift to us all as we move into this most important time.

 I want everyone to know that this time upon the planet more and more people are waking up to realizing that any situation that you are currently experiencing in your life is helping you evolve and move into your next steps in your personal lives.

Maybe some of you are struggling with the feeling of having untapped potential?  Maybe you’re trying to find something that can secure your finances for a better life? Maybe you just want to start something new to helpchange your life for the better.  Maybe you are wanting to release fear, pain, worry and doubt.  Maybe you want to get physically healthier.   Maybe you want to connect with a heart focused community.  Maybe you want to explore your star connections or learn how to meditate.  Maybe you think it’s time to reinvent yourself completely.  Maybe you’re sick of listening to someone giving you orders at the same mundane job you’ve had for a decade?  Maybe you are ready to get the information that can catapult you to the next level of awakening to create the life that you want and to help the world at this time.  Maybe you have gifts that you want to strengthen or an addiction that you want to stop. 

If you can relate to any of these situations, great.  I suggested these examples to help you think about your own situation, as well as to reassure you that wherever you’re at in your life, you’re not alone.  We at the Hope Interfaith Center are here for you. 

We have a variety of healers, spiritual counselors, and helpers as well as groups and classes and a Spiritual Service every month to help you on your journey of change.  You will always feel loved, seen and encouraged as you walk into the small doors of the Hope Interfaith Center where people have big hearts.  Take a look at our new newsletter on our web-site and continue to keep informed by joining us on Facebook for events that are currently happening at our center.   

May you all let “Freedom Ring” as we celebrate the Fourth of July!

Blessings to you All,
