Sunday Celebration with Rev. Sherry Schultz and Music by Dennis & Bonnie O’Hanlon

Rev. Sherry Schultz What Do You Expect? This Sunday is known in some traditions as The Ascenscion, commemorated 40 days after Easter.  Muslims, who have fasted and prayed during the month of Ramadan, take this opportunity to break fast.  What  on earth did it mean in the time of Jesus?  What has it meant historically, and what does it mean to you and your spiritual path today? Sherry has been an ordained Unity minister since 1995 and served churches in…

Sunday Celebration with Doug Benecke & Sally Spirit

Team Kindness If life is play, how do you play the game – and what team are you on?  We all know how competition feels, whether at work, trying to get someone’s attention, or just getting on the highway.  From time to time, we may have had the feeling we’re going to make a mistake, give up an advantage, or lose out.  What if, instead of trying to win, we were trying to… be kind?  Are you operating from kindness,…

Sunday Celebration with Anna Welsch & Music by Becky Thatcher & Matt Corey

Good Vibrations! Anna Welsch More and more, it seems we are discovering  the importance of gaining control over the endless chatter of our monkey minds as well as awareness of the ego mind and its cunning convictions. With the teachings of Buddhism and  Mindfulness, the Law of Attraction, and Christ-Consciousness, along with a host of beautifully written books old and new, we are entering into a new paradigm of thinking. This new paradigm is a focus on what we love.…

Sunday Celebration with Doug Benecke & Sallie Spirit

Sunday Celebration Service with Doug Benecke and Sallie Spirit

The Little Things Are The Big Things We are rightly and naturally concerned with our lives’ major decisions, the big pieces of the puzzle.  Still, most of our time is spent in the small moments that add up, one by one. And, these small instances are, in fact, our very lives, as we experience them. The little things are the big things. This week at Unity, a moment by moment reflection on how the small pieces fit together in crafting…

Sunday Celebration Service with Gale Gray and Musicians Becky & Matt

Meeting Adversity in Spiritual Ways Recently, today’s guest speaker, Gale Gray, went through cancer. So, how does a Mystic approach this adversity? In many ways, like others do, but there were some important differences. At the time, he thought that it would be good to share these with others. Perhaps in a talk titled, “The Cancer.” But, with the passage of time, he now realizes that many of these differences are more universal; they could be applied to other adversities.…

Pastor Bill Comfort with Music by Bonnie & Dennis O’Hanlon

“Living into Abundance” Pastor Bill will be asking us to share their experiences of abundance and/or the lack thereof. All of the world’s religions recognize that God has been and continues to be very generous in in providing all of creation with an abundance of everything.

Guest Speaker-Songwriter-Musician Doug Benecke with Musician Sallie Spirit

“Peace Talks” From time to time, we hear of world leaders meeting for peace talks.  This makes the news, especially these days, because peace talks are not usually the norm in global discourse.  Everyone wants peace, but how much does our world work for it?  How much do we work for it in our personal lives?  How often do we nurture the seeds of conflict, deep down in our hearts, when we so long for peace in our families, in our communities, and on our…

Sunday Celebration Service with Doug Benecke & Sallie Spirit

Saying Yes to Life We may think we already say yes to life; of course we do.  Indeed, it is easy for anyone in our harried and hurried culture to check ‘yes’ and move on.  But . . . what do we affirm?  What do we negate?  And what do we simply not even see as an option?  When you say yes, have you read the whole menu or are you just picking a dish you’ve had before?  This week…
