SUNDAY WITH DR. FRANK SHIELDS:
LIFE AT THE INTERSECTION OF CHURCH AND COMMUNITY

I believe that churches should talk less about what they believe... and live it out more in the community.  Many of you have volunteered at Sunnyside's Hard Times Supper, thank you.  We have also housed homeless families in our shelter.  And, when a young lady heard about our work with homeless families,  she called to talk about an idea for what became the Community Transitional School.  There's no other way to "BE" than to "DO".

Shadow to Light" Program designed to dispel America's Four Collective Shadows TRAINING GATHERINGS
August 29-November 21
12 Tuesdays @ 7:00 pm.

With Dr. Shariff Abdullah
The "Shadow to Light" Program is designed to dispel America's Four Collective Shadows:
  •  The Shadow of Violence
  •  The Shadow of the Other (manifests as racism, sexism, elite-ism)
  •  The Shadow of Lack (manifests as poverty, greed and hoarding)
  •  The Shadow of Despair (manifests as depression, hopelessness and suicide)
The way to end the Shadows is to engage the collective Light. 
Participants will learn how to express and intensify the four corresponding Lights:
  •  The Light of Peace and Security
  •  The Light of Inclusive Community
  •  The Light of True Abundance and Enoughness
  •  The Light of Deep Fulfillment
Addressing the challenges of the Shadows means addressing FEAR. It is fear that keeps the Shadows in place, and fear that must be dispelled if our society is to move forward. 

Training Fee: $240 for certification participants or $180 for  non-certification participants.Sign up in our entry-way if you are interested in attending!

2017 WORLD DAY OF PRAYER 
Sunday, September 17 Service

Times of great change challenge us to find our center in the midst of seeming chaos. The spiritual practice of finding peace right where you are, in the midst of any situation, has been the prescription of master teachers through the ages.
 
Unity is echoing this centuries-old practice during World Day of Prayer 2017, calling for "Peace in the Midst." We're engaging people all over the world with renewed spiritual energy to Pray Peace ... Be Peace ... Do Peace.
 
Bring a Flag!
Together we affirm: I am peace in the midst of all matters!
Now through September 17 you are invited to bring a flag that represents your nationality to hang in our sanctuary. 
GET READY...
