Sunday Service: November 26th at 10:00 AM
Two Truths and a Lie: Using our Power to Move from Illusion to Sacred Reality
with Rev. Jane Hiatt
Lack is a lie but a very convincing one. Life and Love are Real. For most of us, we catch glimpses of the Real but spend a lot of time focused on the illusion. In this talk, Rev. Jane will get into some detail on how we can make this important shift, using time-tested Unity methods.
Bring a snack to share after service!
