Spirit Groups

  • Spirit Groups inspire infinite possibilities for connection and help us move into mission and relationship-centered ministry and practice.
  • Members of a Spirit Group form deep and lasting friendships. They become Spiritual Family and support each other through good and difficult times. They learn together and teach each other.
  • Spirit Groups provide structure and accountability for creating deep, lasting personal transformation.

Men’s Group

Third Saturday of each month: 9:00—11:30 am

“At some point in time, a man needs to embark on a risky journey. It’s a necessary adventure that takes him into uncertainty, and almost always involves some form of difficulty or failure. On this journey, the man
learns to trust God more than he trusts a sense of right and wrong or his own sense of self-worth.

… Often we mistake the roles we play for authentic living. But eventually, a man begins to sense that something is missing. He may experience this call to awareness as a beckoning whisper, a powerful dream, or a sudden stark life change — but no matter how it shows up, it needs to be heeded.”

(From “On the Threshold of Transformation, Daily Meditations for Men, by R. Rohr, Day 1)


Rejection and Religion to Find Truth

With raw, powerful stories from the LGBTQ community—including Unity ministers and others who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning—Worthy is a booklet offering spiritual support from LGBTQ writers who overcame years of rejection to see themselves as dynamic expressions of God.

The booklet explores journeys of addiction and recovery, marriage, parenthood, abuse, and coming out, with topics including: 

  • Coming to Terms
  • Healing from Religion
  • Creating Families
  • Transforming Gender
  • Knowing My Worth

These stories of healing—of never giving up the search for spiritual understanding and of self-acceptance—have endings that are not simply happy but full of gratitude and love.

The title for this LGBTQ inspirational booklet comes from Rev. Mark Anthony Lord, who said, after his own painful journey:

“I am so flippin’ worthy it’s ridiculous!”
