Minding Your Own Business 
as You Pray With Others

How often do we say, “You are in my thoughts and prayers”?  We are sincere but don’t really know another’s prayer intention and often get our own agenda mixed up in those prayers.  Join LUL’s Susan, Jan, and Barb this Sunday for the lesson on minding your own prayer business!  They will use Unity’s Five Principles and the Unity Affirmative prayer model to guide thinking and praying for others.

Guest Musicians -
Unity Spirit Choir

Join us for a fantastic musical blessing from the Unity Spirit Choir. Nina and the UCR Spirit Choir are the Divine expressions of the ministry of the month.

Great Lakes Unity Regional ConferenceGreat Lakes Region

Jan and Susan attended the recent September conference in Moline IL.  It was wonderful to have it closer to home this year.  This is a great opportunity for us to obtain our required CEUs for the year.  We love the time networking with all of our minister, board, and Licensed Unity Teacher friends.  The keynote speaker this year, Rev Manuel, presented many experiential prayer activities which we can share in upcoming workshops.  During the LUT/LUL Luncheon Susan Liddell was elected as the Great Lakes Licensed Unity Teacher Regional Representative.  As such she represents the 75-80 LUTs in the Region and will be a voting Regional Board member for a three-year term.  Congratulations!  The conference will return to Moline next September. Let’s take a van full of UCR folks!
