Sunday Service – The Law of Creation You Can’t Outrun with Shore Slocum
As we reveal what the sages understood about this first Law of Creation we will see the beginning in the end. The seed in the fruit, and anything as a natural extension of this primary Spiritual Law. We will explore how to see beyond effect and change our reality and circumstances on the seed level.
Sunday, March 20th at 10:00 am – In-Person & Livestreaming on UnityCentralOregon.org
We’re back to having in-person service and we are also Live-streaming on our website using Zoom! You can watch even if you don’t have a Zoom account (you don’t even have to fix your hair!). It will also be available as a recording in the video library on our website and on Facebook later that day.
Since the Oregon mask mandate was lifted on March 11th we will no longer require masks at our in-person service. We encourage those that still feel more comfortable wearing a mask to continue to do so. Whatever feels right for you is the choice we encourage you to go with. 😊😷
Announcing the Return of our Potluck After Service
We are excited about the return of much needed social gathering time following Sunday service. We’ll provide the coffee and tea and we ask that you bring a snack to share when you can. Breaking bread together and connecting is something we’ve all been missing. Volunteers are always needed for set up and clean up. If you have time to help by staying a little later or arriving early we encourage you to do so!

May The Force Be with You (Us) in our Mission POSSIBLE
Actually, it already is with us. The question is, are we with the Force?
by Elaine Cornick
What would you say is our “Mission”? As a start, how about peace, harmony, right relationships, and well-being for all, in a world that works for all? Given our current circumstances, does that seem like “Mission Impossible”, for those of you who remember that TV show? Some people might say that transforming this culture and these circumstances is impossible. I say it’s time to go beyond the “impossible”. A different paradigm is already available if we know where to look. Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet pointed to this in his famous quote, “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there”. In that spirit of “Rumi’s Field”, there are any number of examples of this different paradigm being described and demonstrated which all have consciousness…
Sacred Season of Climate Justice
Through our Action Compassion Transformation (ACT) ministry we will be participating with faith communities across the globe in the Sacred Season for Climate Justice. This year many of the world’s religions high holidays take place between March 17th and May 6th — Holi. Vaisakhi. Ramadan. Passover. Holy Week and Easter. Vesak. Naw Ruz. Ridvan.
These religious holidays attract billions of people. The Equinox, Earth Day, and World Water Day, which also occur during this time, engage even more people.
An international interfaith movement is galvanizing a Climate Action and Climate Justice season during this time and our Unity Community of Central Oregon is taking part. We will be offering workshops on Sacred Eco-Nomics, showing a fabulous documentary about powerful real-life examples of Earth’s regeneration, and possibly organizing a faith for climate action rally. Stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, you can check out Unity Worldwide Ministries’ statement in the Sacred Season for Climate Justice Resource Collection on our blog post here.
Member Appreciation 🙏🏽
It is really impossible to quantify how much Clare, Kevin, and their son Nikko do for our community. Clare serves as President of our Board of Directors, and our Operations Manager. She does everything from coordinating volunteers, to handling massive pieces of the overall administrative duties, to implementing Sunday services, to weeding! Kevin has built and operates our absolutely indispensable AV system that allows us to livestream our services and events. He also does our website, database, video postings, you name it – huge contribution. Nikko has become a main leader of the AV team, helps with social media posts, and is currently leading a Spirit Group.
Clare and Kevin are getting ready to head off on a two-month road trip vacation and it has been a job for Rev. Jane, Cylvia, and Nikko just figuring out how to fill the gap while they’re gone. HUGE THANK YOU! And have a great, great time.
