Sunday Celebration Service“Threefold Healing” with Rev. John Riley and music by Ron E. Beck from 10:00-11:00am.

Divine life is my ongoing source of well-being in mind, body, and spirit. Maintaining my spiritual practice keeps me open to the flow of divine ideas, substance, and guidance. Daily declare that your spiritual life and world, your mental life and world, your physical life and world are unified and that you are expressing harmoniously the ideas of the divine consciousness on these three planes.

“A Course in Miracles”

Love offering
Facilitated by Pravieen Khilnani

Join us to discuss the principles of “A Course in Miracles”. This self-study spiritual thought system teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.

Question Your Thinking, Change Your Life – The Work of Byron Katie

1st and 3rd Mondays, 6:30-8:00pm, Y.E.S. Hall
Love offering – No prior experience necessary – Bring a friend
Facilitated by Jane Reeder
Join us in our Inquiry Circle at Unity in which we gather with others committed to questioning their thoughts—to gain clarity and reduce stress. Thought patterns seem hard to change precisely because we still believe these stressful thoughts. However, would you still believe them if you could see that they are not true? And if this were simple to learn, how might it change your life? Come find out. Meetings will be punctuated by discussions, video, and audio materials of Byron Katie.
