Classes:

“Lessons in Truth”, facilitated by March Orchard

April 19, 2017 – May 17th, 2017 (Each Wednesday for 5 weeks)
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Class is on a Love Offering basis.
This class is an exploration of the oldest Unity book, first published in 1903, by H. Emilie Cady. Students will study and discuss metaphysical principles including the choice of freedom, the Spirit within, thoughts as instruments, the tools of denial and affirmation, spiritual gifts, the secret place of the Most High, the Silence, and how to express Oneness as understood by the author.
An emphasis will be made to facilitate a practice of these ideas through study of practical applications of one or more of these concepts in our daily lives. This was always the intention of Unity’s pioneers and continues to be the intention of Unity of Rockford.

Come join your fellow members in this lively discussion of Unity’s basic beliefs.
Read Lessons 1 & 2 for 4/19 class.

Course material: Cady, H. Emilie. Lessons in Truth. Pub. 1903. Unity Village, MO. Available on Amazon or Unity

“Life’s Big Questions”, introduced by Bob Coupar

Begins: April 27, 2017 (4th Thursday each month)
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Future dates and facilitator will be determined at this meeting
This group discussion is based on the book, “Life’s Big Questions – 200 ways to explore your spiritual life” by Jonathan Robinson. This book is not required but if you want to buy one, it can be purchased on Amazon for around $5.00

Initially we will meet once a month, but it will be up to the group to decide how often we would meet.

The following are the first 8 of 16 questions to be found in chapter 2 of the book entitled “Who Are You?” We will be discussing these at our first meeting.
1. What matters most in your life?

2. What do you think is the meaning or purpose of life?

3. Who are you?

4. What are the three most important things you’ve learned about life so far?

5. Do you think it pays to be a “good person,” someone who is kind and fair? Why?

6. How can you know your higher destiny?

7. How happy or fulfilled are you at this time in your life?

8. What do you consider to be the difference between religion and spirituality?

The 200 questions in this book can be used as a tool to delve more deeply into our own belief, understandings and experiences. By asking ourselves profound questions, it’s possible to discover or uncover our own
illuminating answers.

This discussion group would not be about discussing or evangelizing any particular religion but it might help clarify or reinforce why one might have chosen a particular one.

There are no wrong or right answers to these questions. There may be some of these questions that you might not feel comfortable answering at all and that is perfectly OK.
There will not be anything to memorize or tests to take.

It is suggested but not required that you start a journal and write out the answers to these questions before you come to the group
