Classes and Workshops

Programs

We invite you to participate!

Upcoming workshops and events:

New Series:  Our new Transitional Ministry Consultant, Rev. Nat Carter, is planning a study of Ellen Debenport's book ""Hell in the Hallway, Light at the Door: How to Move Gracefully Through Change into Renewed and Abundant Life".  The series will begin the 3rd week in June and run for 6 weeks.  There will be several study groups at different times and locations around town, and Rev. Nat's Sunday services will be based on the book's themes.  Please sign up to offer your space and/or facilitate a group.  Rev. Nat will provide training to facilitators prior to the beginning of the class.  
 
We continue to run our Wednesday Drop-In Discussion Group which meets each Wednesday morning, from 10:30 am to noon at our office, located at 838 Pandora Avenue.  We are studying the book, The Five Principles:  A Guide to Practical Spirituality, by Ellen Debenport.  The five principles constitute the core teachings of the Unity spiritual movement founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.  The author encourages every reader to “work with these principles, test them, apply them to your life, and watch what happens.”  
 
The book provides tools for daily living and suggests answers to the great questions of existence that humans have been asking since the dawn of conscious awareness:
• What is this greater Presence that we sense around us?
• Who and what are we?
• Why do things happen in our lives the way they do?
• How can we communicate with this Presence?
• What are we here to do?  
 
Please join us to share in the discussion and learn more about the principles on which Unity is based.  No registration is required and you do not need to have read the book in order to participate.

Honoring Our Past, Creating Our Future
Pot Luck and Workshop
Sunday August 20, 12:15-2:15
This workshop brings the entire community together to tell their story and to see the ways that identity, meaning, and purpose for present circumstances and future possibilities have been created. The process helps by examining past practices, conditions and attitudes. This enables bringing the best forward and releasing the rest. This same process can be applied to our individual lives as well for recovery from yesterday’s issues.
