I started coming to Celebration Circle in 2007 after some big changes in my life. I had lost my job and suddenly my social circle seemed to vanish. My wife and I were acquainted with The Circle through mutual friends and we thought it would be a good time to check things out. I was raised in a more traditional religious setting, so I found Celebration Circle’s approach to spirituality a complete surprise. It took me a while to warm up. But soon I fell under the spell of the Circle’s simple message, the awesome power of Love. The spell must have worked because soon I was laughing, hugging, singing and praying with the best of them. My social circle had returned.


Two years ago I was asked to serve on the Circle’s Council of Stewarts. This has given me the opportunity to help others benefit from this unique organization which has done so much for me.
