|Meeting|

Learning Right Relations Group

Learning Right Relations (LRR) is a series of classes, auxiliary meetings and visits to Tribal sites aimed at addressing the historic marginalization and ongoing inequities of our Coastal Salish neighbors. The group will be meeting at our Unity at 1:00p on October 7, November 11 and December 2. There will be good food to share (potluck style, please bring a dish!) and informative indigenous speakers as we learn more together. We hope you will join us.

October's speakers will be Elizabeth and Robert Satiacum. Please consider bringing a $5 donation for the speakers. Your time at the Gatherings will be greatly enhanced by reading "What Happened to the Steh-Chass People" by Pat Rasmussen and "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States" by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.

Appreciative Inquiry Process/Interview Training

October 21 | 1:00-4:00p

The Appreciative Inquiry Process is one in which a community takes stock of what’s going right. It’s an opportunity to look back on the last several years and take an inventory of sorts to help determine the future direction for our leadership. It’s also the process by which a community gains clarity about what we value most highly and our reason for being. This is a three part process:

  • Interviews with members to gather information
  • Community Summit to confirm Values and determine the Mission
  • Creation (or renewal) of Strategic Plan

Appreciative Inquiry Interview training will be provided on October 21st to the volunteers who will be conducting the interviews. If you’d like to be an interviewer, please contact the office to let us know you’ll be at the training on Sunday the 21st from 1 to 4pm.

Reverend Howard Caesar Returns to Unity of Olympia

November 4 | 10:30a

Reverend Howard Caesar will be our Sunday guest speaker and will present a workshop following the service. This event is co-sponsored by Unity of Olympia and Olympia Center for Spiritual Living so our local CSL friends will be joining us for the day. Our youth and music teams will be working together and Reverend David Robinson and Reverend Terry Murray will serve as hosts for the events. For those planning on attending both, lunch will be available for purchase.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

Sunday Lesson: "The One Question to Ask" Our active mind continually asks questions, and we may or may not have good answers. Yet there is one question we can ask ourselves in any circumstance that will bring forth an answer - one that is expansive, transcendent and empowering.

Workshop: "Getting Clear" Clarity paves the way to increased power, freedom and happiness. This workshop is for the person who is looking for clarity and deeper meaning in the life they've been called to live. A larger, more expansive view of life, yourself, God and your relationship to "All That Is" awaits anyone's willingness to enter this process of getting clear.
