November 27th – Holiday Advent Calendar
Remember the joy of opening an advent calendar when you were a child? What a wonderful tradition that honored the count-down to the holidays. This year SALC is offering a free digital Holiday Advent Calendar. Behind each virtual “door” will be a surprise: a quote, a song, a poem, a picture, or suggested daily practice to help your holidays stay focused on what deeply matters. Look for the November 27th e-newsletter containing this link.

We hope you can join us for our free events. Of course, the heart-and-soul of our Annual Appeal is to raise the funds to continue the work for another year. During this campaign, we need you more than ever. There has never been a more dire situation than having to face and adjust to this new Pandemic reality. This year our Annual Appeal Goal is $100,000. Our SALC community has met a similar annual appeal goal with last year’s campaign, but we also know that many of you are struggling with the economic effects of 2020 as well. We ask for your support and are grateful for all that you give. As a “thank you,” we are giving every donation of $50 or more a series of brand-new downloadable guided visualization created by Richard Groves to help bring peace throughout the coming year. We are so grateful you are a part of our beautiful world.
