Sunday Service: Sunday, June 26th at 10:00 AM
Rev. Robin Ryan will help us consider “Just How Much Joy Can You Handle?!”
Most of us have developed a relatively high pain tolerance just by living and experiencing pain. Have you ever asked yourself how high your Joy tolerance is? Let’s unpack how you might increase your nervous system’s comfort for Great Joy in everyday life!
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. 😊😷
Rev. Jane will be exploring what goes in the Nest with our elementary-aged kids.

Help Us Get the Word Out!
Do you love Unity and think others would too? Do you agree that Unity is a too well-kept secret? Do you need to get more steps in for your exercise program? If the answer to any of these is yes, we have an opportunity for you!
Pretty soon we are going to have a big stack of cool door hangers that introduce Unity and invite folks to come check us out. We will need lots of volunteers to walk neighborhoods and help get these out there. Don’t worry there is no door knocking or evangelizing involved—just ninja activity to pop the hangers on the doors! Your kids can help!
We’d like to give a shout-out to Gayle Zeigler who came up with this innovative idea and who is taking the lead coordinating volunteers to help get them distributed. Please contact Gayle if you’re willing to help and get that exercise while you’re at it! — Email Gayle

Our Spiritual Leader and minister-in-training, Cylvia Hayes, was at the Unity Worldwide Peoples’ Convention this past week. She was there to deliver a workshop on Sacred Eco-Nomics, represent Unity of Central Oregon at the Unity Worldwide business meeting, and learn ways to help make our Central Oregon Unity community even better and stronger.

See Your World, Through the Eyes of Love
By Rev. James Loughrie
The words God and Love are both interchangeable, they both apply in a pathway leading to divinity and comfort. The thought then entered my mind to really consider this statement; “start looking through the eyes of love. It changes everything.”
As I was in meditation today, this particular thought came to me, and immediately it showed me something different about whatever situation I’m in. The expression of love from oneself is a very powerful energy. Whatever struggle is in your life, consider this resolution: look at it differently, through the eyes of love.
When you do that, you instantly get a new perspective and a clearer understanding about what it is you’re confronted with today. In the eyes of love, there is no disappointment, no lack, only the fulfillment of being loved.
Do this: Think about a struggle you’re having and give your attention to only that struggle for right now. Now intentionally think about seeing this situation, or person, in the eyes of love. Concentrate on your eyes seeing everything in love. Looking through the eyes of love changes your perception because now you’re looking through a different lens. And when that changes, it changes everything.
Life is about perception. Your perception of the situation, or person creates your feelings and that is what is the most impacting, your feelings. If it doesn’t feel good, then change your perception about it. Perception relates to how you feel about it, and if that is a downer feeling, then release it with love, through the eyes of love.
