Our 150th kickoff celebration on January 28th was a big hit. In the morning, members gathered to visit on the lower patio and enjoy the sunshine. Our sound therapist Terry provided healing sound sessions, which were very popular, while others enjoyed the meandering magician and fascinating historical art show by John Keasler, which lined the walls of Bard Hall.
Soon enough it was time for our short program in the Meeting House with special music and visiting dignitaries. Highlights included a message from council member Chris Ward (a church member) and San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria, who provided a special proclamation.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed more visiting, kid's face painting and circus arts with catering was provided by the amazing L&L Hawaiian Barbeque. Many thanks to all of the volunteers and staff who worked hard to put together this complicated event. All of the pieces came together to make it a truly memorable day - and a proper kickoff to our 150th year of celebrating liberal religion in San Diego.
