Come and be a part of the annual Las Posadas Candlelight Walk, in Sutter Creek. Las Posadas is a centuries-old Spanish tradition which reenacts Mary and Joseph’s trip to Bethlehem. “This is a participatory event — everyone walks, carries a candle and sings. People can relate to this story because it is a one of hardship and deprivation — a young couple expecting a baby with no place to go except a stable,” remarked Faye Fyock, who, with her husband, organized the first event in 2006.

The procession begins on Spanish Street,...

Recently, I have been pondering the virtue of peace and how we can best cultivate it. Peace is an aspiration of spiritual people everywhere.

Amidst growing international conflict, many people around the world observed the United Nations declaration...
