Sunday Service: Sunday, June 5th at 10:00 AM
Cylvia Hayes shares The Power of Story
It’s been said that culturally we are struggling right now because we’re in between stories. The old story of separation and dominion over the Earth isn’t working anymore and we haven’t yet landed on the new story (though lots and lots of us are actively working on that). Each spring, Unity Community of Central Oregon spends a couple months exploring our place in the world as spiritual beings having a human experience on this planet called Earth. This Sunday, I’ll share Unity’s unique approach to the creation story and we’ll celebrate the magnificence of this glorious place we get to call home. Our stories matter. The stories we tell ourselves, and the stories we tell about ourselves create our experience of life. Collectively, we need a new, better, and better-feeling story. Who better to create it than people practicing Unity principles and New Thought thinking? I hope you’ll join me as we discuss the power of story.
In-Person & Livestreaming on UnityCentralOregon.org
We are delighted to offer you the option of in-person service or 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.
Masks are no longer required 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. 😊😷
Children 5 to 10 years old are invited to do lessons and crafts in our Unity Nest during the service. Friends are welcome!
The nursery is also open for little ones up to 4 years old.
Bring some food to share at our after service potluck 😁.
