Annual Fundraising Campaign 2016
Dear friends of Sophia and the Sophia Foundation,
Greetings and gratitude for your embracing a Sophianic vision for humanity. One need not look far in these times to see the importance of creating community in service to Divine Sophia, the Queen of Peace, and her holy mission birthing a culture of Love and Wisdom. It is truly a blessing that the path to Christ and Sophia remains open to us all and we pray that you feel their divine presence in every breath.
2016 has been an exciting and eventful year for the Sophia Foundation: we had our biggest pilgrimage to date, bringing prayers, song and sacred dance to Israel, the heart chakra of the Earth; we have held twenty different events and retreats, including a unique Annual Conference on the Black Madonna; we have expanded our outreach and support base; we are working to create a new website; and, as many of you know, we are envisioning a new chapter in the life of the Sophia Foundation as Robert Powell’s focus is turning primarily toward completing his research projects. Indeed, as a community, we are poised to usher in new visions, new voices and new opportunities to be of service to Sophia. This is a time of tremendous opportunity for each of us to be involved in shaping the future of the Sophia Foundation.
After twenty-one years, the time is at hand for the Sophia Foundation to bring our work into the wider web of human relationships, inspiring larger Sophia communities and new service opportunities. As we broaden our outreach we are seeking to engage young people who will become the next generation carrying the impulse of Sophia into the world.
We are blessed to have two new, young members stepping into greater contributing roles on our Board of Trustees, Lila Tschappat and Steven Lambeth. Lila writes in relation to outer challenges: My work with the Sophia Foundation has been life-altering. The presence of Sophia, a soft, clear, wisdom-filled presence, is one that has re-infused my work as a therapist with meaning. As I deepen my relationship to her, and am able to bring this presence ever more consciously into the room when needed, I find I am refreshed by the change wrought in myself and others who are suffering, a healing I myself alone could not bring about.
Steven writes: I think of Sophia as the one who holds me when I am alone in nature and gifts me with poetry when I am open to inspiration. She at once can feel so close and yet be utterly ineffable. I am blessed to know many amazing women who demonstrate ennobled femininity and I feel that through relationship with them and with Divine Sophia I am able to learn how to hold my masculinity with nobility. My intention is to deepen my relationship with Sophia throughout my life and to give my life to a Sophianic vision of peace.
In this autumnal time of harvest and giving thanks, as we approach our 22nd year of service, we ask for your support, both spiritually and financially. Your spiritual support strengthens our ability to serve Sophia with enduring steadfastness. Your tax-deducible gifts, however large or small, contribute to the development of the Sophia Foundation and help to create a field of support for our continuing service. Our hope is to receive the enacted energy of 100% of our community.
We thank you for the myriad ways you support the growing work of the Sophia Foundation and for your active participation in creating Sophianic community in our world.
In service and gratitude,
The Board of Trustees of the Sophia Foundation
