Invitation to Sunday’s talk, with Dr. Cari Bourette

When They Don’t have Ears to Hear

with Dr. Cari Bourette

We all know people we would really like to share the important things of our lives with, yet it makes it difficult when they have a much different way of seeing the world. We might want to share about Unity or our Wild Soul Sanctuary, but we are aware that they may not be open to a non-traditional path. How do we relate with people who can’t or just won’t hear us?

Bring a food item to share with the community after service! We’ll provide the coffee and tea ☕️.

Childcare and activities are available for children 0 through 12 years 🌈.

Sunday Morning Meditation – Every Sunday, 9:00 to 9:45 AM (Doors open at 8:50 AM and close at 9:05 AM)🧘🏽

Auction Results & Member Appreciation

This week we have to give a huge THANK YOU to Charlotte Oakes and all the wonderful members who stepped up to help her organize the auction!! It was a great success – we raised about $8,500 for our Unity Community! Auctions are a ton of a work and Charlotte spent many weeks gathering donations, and organizing the details so the event ran smoothly. We can’t thank you enough Charlotte for bringing this fundraising event to fruition!!

We also want to thank Diane Moyerman for donating all the food that was prepared by a new chef in our community, Sam Freda. The food was delicious and healthy. I’m sure they’d both love to know how much you enjoyed it.

And how about the musical talent of Sweet Red and the Hot Rod Billies?!! Many of us had so much fun dancing to their rockabilly tunes. Thank you Dave Finch and Anna Thedford and the rest of the band for donating your time and talent.

So many of you donated items, helped with set up and clean up, the list goes on. It was a team effort and you could feel the beautiful energy being put out by everyone who helped. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Community is a beautiful thing! Now everyone get some rest 🤪🤣🥰.

Wear Your Prosperity Coffee Table Book by Genesis Ilada

This book project was the brainchild of member Genesis Ilada after participating in a Unity prosperity class. Genesis is a professional makeup artist, designer, and photographer and wanted to use her skills to feature images of Unity ministers and members along with their stories of prosperity to raise funds for our community. The end result is a beautiful coffee table book now available for purchase. Genesis says, “The book’s purpose is to share our individual Prosperity story and what it means to be prosperous. It highlights our deep connection with Mother Nature through promoting positive tourism in Bend by photographing our members in city and state parks.” The book is priced at $88 and you may add more as a donation.

You can view the beautiful book in the Unity foyer.
