Sacred Service Saturday 2017
June 17 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
Uniting in Service, Rising in Love!
Agape International Spiritual Center’s
24th Annual Sacred Service Saturday
June 17th, 2017
A Special Invitation from Michael Bernard Beckwith
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question,” said Martin Luther King Jr., “is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” Agape’s Sacred Service Saturday offers each of us the opportunity to put into action an answer to this meaningful question.
Our theme, “Uniting in Service, Rising in Love,” so aptly describes the fruits of our spiritual practices, because when we expand our hearts through meditation and prayer, we directly experience our interconnection to all beings and are impelled to express this overflow of Divine Love through selfless service. And by doing so, we nourish all those who become its beneficiaries.
Given the events that are currently taking place in our human history, perhaps at no other time in its 24 years has Sacred Service Saturday been more needed on so many levels by our brothers and sisters. Please sign-up today and select your three project choices to help our team facilitate this special day.
If you are not in the vicinity of our Center, you can still join us. Last year, our Satel-Light participants were from over 20 locations including Hawaii, Nevada, New York, Kentucky, Pittsburg, Colorado—even Brazil and India! It is my hope that this year we can greatly increase this number. Please email SSSLights@Agapelive.com to find out how you can participate.
I invite you to join us on June 17th and experience for yourself what can be achieved when we unite in a passionate sense of generosity of heart.
Love, peace, and richest blessings to you,
Michael Bernard Beckwith
Founder and Spiritual Director

To all participants:
Projects are assigned on a first come/first gets-to-serve basis.
You are not considered to be “there in Spirit” unless you are “there in Body.” Spirit will be there in Spirit. If you sign up, please show up!!
Bring your lunch unless otherwise informed. If you bring your lunch, consider a “zero waste” approach. Bringing re-useable containers, utensils, cloth napkins etc, and leaving no trace behind, demonstrates our love for the planet and puts our practice into service.
Please plan for the whole day so everyone can share this expanded experience of service and community.
Please be on time in the morning and afternoon.
Please wear clothes you can get dirty and, for most projects, closed toed shoes.
Please be aware that projects, particularly clean-up projects, outdoor projects and those involving animals, may include encounters with insects, rodents, reptiles and other living beings.
Please be aware that all projects will include encounters with human beings.
