November's Divine Faculty is Elimination

Elimination is the ability to release, remove, denounce, deny, and let go.

I release anything and everything that no longer serves
my unfolding Good!

This Sunday, November 24

Guest Speaker ~ Laura Meade

Her Topic: The GREATful Heart

You might be overloaded on the gratitude topic (is that possible?), but Laura will try to bring a different perspective to it. She will express the board’s appreciation and gratitude to all our volunteers, but also a message of faith.
Laura is the current president of the UnityCR board of trustees.  She’s a longtime member, and former Youth and Family Ministry director.

Guest Musicians - Unity Spirit Choir

Oh, how we are grateful for our Unity Spirit Choir!! Come hear them express their joy and fill you up with non-fattening spiritual food.

Thanks-for-Giving Feast

After service

Thanks for Giving
After service enjoy the Thanksgiving feast prepared by the Board of Trustees and the Licensed Unity Leaders (LULs).  It’s their way of saying "Thank You!" to all the many volunteers who make UnityCR an amazing community. 

Artists of the Week 

In the place of Artist of the Week this Sunday, there will be Sacred Grounds and Books items for sale in the foyer and in the community room during our Thanks-4-Giving Feast.  Shop for enlightening gifts for those on your holiday list.

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…sox, 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 keep others warm in this cold weather!

Exploring Unity Team ~
Ministry of the Month

Exploring Unity
This team teaches potential new members all about Unity principles, ideas, and actions, and about Unity CR in particular.  There are three parts to becoming a Unity CR member: the “Foundations of Unity” class, a tour of our Unity home, and a one on one discussion about your own spiritual journey and how Unity can support it. 

Exploring Unity foundation class will be December 8

In this exciting time of transition in our spiritual community, it is important for everyone to have a voice in our decisions. We have an annual meeting on Sunday, January 19 during which we will be electing Board members. If you wish to become a voting member, you'll need to take all the Exploring Unity classes. See Janith Griffith, Susan Liddell, or Barb Buchanan for more information.
