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 17 

Guest Speaker ~ Sandra Leigh

Her Topic: All Roads Lead to Home

Sandra LeighThe Internet, social media, and being too busy seem to be a recipe for what we are now seeing as a narcissistic or “me only” culture.  We have little time for anybody, including ourselves most days. For some of us, our sense of belonging feels to be slipping away. 
How do we navigate this new terrain with the inclusion of peace, harmony, and community?
Sandra will walk us through the underlying truths of the “me” culture and invite us back to Unity’s Five Principles which are alive and vibrant in every situation. We will discover and uncover our own power in these times and be reminded how to live the presence of God regardless of the cultural terrain. 

Sandra grew up in Cedar Rapids and became a member of UnityCR at the age of 17.  She served as a board member, then president of the board of Unity of the Black Hills in South Dakota. Sandra holds a Masters degree in Social Work and studied Transpersonal Psychology in a postgraduate program in Santa Monica, CA. Her happy-place is holding space as a healer for many, well aware we all heal ourselves best in the presence of Love.  She is currently blessed to call Cedar Rapids her home. 

Guest Musicians - Ericka Maynard
& Angela Dooley

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.
