Fall Enrichment Program
In The I of the Storm: Embracing Conflict, Creating Peace we learn to go beyond merely managing the conflict in our lives to actually embracing the conflict, allowing it to teach us what we otherwise might not learn. This process leads to peacemaking whether it be within ourselves, in our relationships, or as a result of outside circumstances.
The magic of this book is the way Dr. Simmons, in a very practical, reality based manner, discusses the challenges, temptations and hazards the world presents to us on a day-to-day basis that distracts us from our purpose here on Earth. He provides practical techniques and strategies, both spiritually and materially based, to help us avoid these hazards, allowing us to better align ourselves with our divine purpose and mission.
Our Fall Enrichment program is a 7-week, in-depth spiritual exploration of the book. Click here for more information and weekly recaps.

Sunday, 7/1, 12:00 pmA five-week class on Sundays with Casey Wicker, Licensed Unity Teacher Candidate
Dates: Sundays, 6/10-7/15 (no class on 7/8) @ 12:00-2:00pm
Cost: Love offering
Based on a dualistic concept of God, prayer has historically been directed to a God both outside of and distant from ourselves. We will explore the function and nature of prayer from the view of Unity Minister Eric Butterworth in his book The Universe Is Calling: Opening to the Divine Through Prayer. During this interactive course, we will:
- Identify the limiting beliefs that prevent us from living more authentically from an awareness of our divine nature
- Discover how meditation and the Silence can bring us into alignment with our Christ Nature
- Practice Unity’s 5-Step Prayer Process, and discuss how we pray for self and others
Please read the Introduction, Prologue, and Chapters 1-4 before the first class.

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.
