    New Thought Bible Study Book Group | Saturdays, 9:30 - 10:45am (via Zoom)

    For the curious, the doubtful and the wishful thinkers. No commitment necessary, drop-ins are always welcome!

    Many people believe the best way to study the Bible is to read the Bible but maybe it’s not. Unity teaches that the Bible is the story of the evolution of consciousness; the changing awareness of humanity’s relationship with God and one another. The Fillmore’s (Unity’s founders) were more interested in the meaning behind the stories than whether the stories of the Bible were factual or not. Current biblical and archaeological scholarship offers us information that just wasn’t available a hundred years ago, or even fifty years ago. Join Reverend Terry on a new adventure in 2022 with John Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. Register to receive the Zoom login.

    Join us according to your schedule and interest! The study of The Last Week will conclude on April 16th and will reconvene on April 30th for a study of Marcus Borg’s Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time. This group meets by zoom on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 10:45. Please feel free to “drop in” to check it out. Lively conversation and new understandings of old stories is our normative experience.

    • April 30 – May 28: Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time | Marcus Borg

    "The Five Principles"

    Based on the book by Rev. Ellen Debenport, this series poses questions such as: What is this greater Presence that we sense around us? Who and what are we? Why do things happen in our lives the way they do? How can we communicate with this Presence? and What are we here to do? This series provides a wonderful introduction to New Thought teachings. It is a great resource for new members who want to understand the basics of New Thought as well as long-time spiritual seekers who are ready to go deeper into the five principles that form the basis of our faith.

    Mitch Hunter: Gender Expansive Diversity - An Insider's View

    June 17th, 6:00-8:00pm via Zoom


    When it all comes down to it…we all seek it, we all want it, at our very core we are all just looking for love, connection and belonging. Brené Brown talks about the difference between simply fitting in, the barrier to belonging, as acclimating or acquiescing to 'fit in' to an environment versus true belonging. True belonging comes from a solid foundation of knowing who you are, growing, accepting and loving yourself where you are, as you are and the courage it takes to live that truth, fully.

    Transgender/non-binary and gender expansive identified folx are often starting from a place of deep shame, not the idea of "I did something wrong" but simply as who I am, "I am wrong".  The fear that "I am a mistake; there's something wrong with me; why can't I be like everyone else--normal" sometimes defines our lives rather than being able to see ourselves as the unique, diverse, multi-talented versions of who we are, as connected to and as Source Energy.

    • Explore the framework of understanding gender as a construct and how it frames our entire existence as a "gendered" experience.
    • Open to a mindset that to live within the binary lines of "male" or "female" limits us from the inclusive experience of expansive view of gender identity and expression.
    • Hear from "an insider's view" what it is like to experience life/live as trans/nb individual. Mitch Hunter and other panelists will share their lived experiences.
    • Request/Order "Worthy" book from Unity.org: stories of Trans/nb, and LGBQ identified folx within Unity and their individual journey's to living their authentic life.
    • Receive a "checklist" you can use to signal a more inclusive, open experience for trans/nb folx within your space and as individuals whether as "ally" or "accomplice". 
    When it all comes down to it, we are all more alike than we are different. We are all looking for love, connection and belonging.
