Foundations of Unity Class
October 9 @ 11:00 am
Sundays, September 25-October 9, immediately following our 10 a.m. service —
This is a class taught by Pat McKevitt, Licensed Unity Teacher, for anyone interested in finding out more about the Unity Way of Life and especially those who are interested in becoming members of our church family.
All classes will be held in the Sanctuary immediately following the service. New members will be installed during the Sunday service on November 6.
How did Unity begin and what do we believe? This session will deal with the founders of the Unity Movement, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore and what transpired in their lives to give them the energy and clarity it took to begin their work. Topics will include the beginnings of Silent Unity, the publishing work and Unity School of Christianity.
Is it for me? Rosemary Fillmore Rhea, the great-granddaughter of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore wrote: “What is Unity? Unity is a family of loved ones drawn together by their mutual belief in an idea. The idea that holds us is that of a good and all-powerful God whose love indwells us and gives us everything we need to live happy, healthy, productive lives. This idea and the people who believe it have created incredible blessings of positive thought and prayer for our world. Our history is filled with stories of answered prayer, prosperity demonstrations, and miracles of healing and peace. Our future holds no less, for, as each of us unfolds as God’s beloved expression, our individual spiritual growth speeds the spiritual development of our world.”
Unity offers a new way of thinking, a new way of being. It is a way full of hope, love, peace, abundance, healing and joy. It is a way full of oneness that allows people truly to see one another as brothers and sisters. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.
This week we will examine our sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our churches, our communities and our world.
The Five Principles and how to use them in our lives.
1. God is good and everywhere present.
2. The spirit of God lives within each person, therefore, all people are inherently good.
3. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking.
4. There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our connection to God. 5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
