Do Greater Things –
Following In Jesus’s Footsteps

Book Study, 9:00 a.m.-9:45 a.m.

Join Paula Land and Laura Meade as they explore the final chapter of Searcy's book.  This month’s chapter is “Final Words”, where we remember that we have the same capabilities as Jesus possessed.  It is on us to continue our spiritual journey by embracing Vision, Faith, Prayer, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Humility, Community, Death, and Service and all that these practices have to teach us. 

Guest Speaker ~ Rev. Paul Hasselbeck

His Topic: No Room in the Inn

Rev. Paul Hasselbeck
Rev. Paul Hasselbeck will help us kick off the Advent season with a little Christmas metaphysics.  Metaphysics means “beyond the physical”, so Rev. Paul will go beyond the literal story and show us how we can apply the Christmas story to our own lives, today.

 Rev. Hasselbeck is one of Unity’s leading authorities on metaphysics.  He is a well-respected “heart-centered” metaphysician, author, speaker, workshop leader, educator, radio host, and minister.  His genuine passion for clarity and precision guides people to awaken their awareness and deepen their understanding.

Guest Musician - Nina Swanson

Nina will bless us with her beautiful voice and music selection.

Community Outreach for the Holidays

MittensThe Leadership Circle has chosen the Willis Dady Overflow Shelter as our holiday outreach this year.  They need many items for the Willis Dady shelter as well as the overflow shelter which just opened in the former Fillmore building adjacent to Abbey Center.  Portable snacks and any items for the homeless during the cold weather are needed…socks, mittens, gloves, scarves, thermal wear, joggers, etc.  See the poster in the foyer for details.  Place unwrapped items in gift bags or the boxes with the display.  Your gifts will be received up until Comfy Christmas on Dec 22.  Thanks for helping to keep others warm in this cold weather!
