This adult education class meets between Sunday services, from 10:10 to 10:50 a.m., in the library/Conference Room. Each week is different, often featuring a different presenter and topic. Some weeks are put together to create short series.
Here is what’s coming up for the next months with each presenter and topic.
- May 19: Harry Sheetz, Recent Powerful Messages from Jesus.
Harry Sheetz will share recent powerful messages gifted to the world that can help us understand how and why we need to elevate our knowledge and understanding.
- May 26: HOLIDAY VACATION
June 2: LuAnn Saner, Woope Sakowin: The Seven Spiritual Laws of the Sioux Lakota Native American Tribe.
Foundational to Lakota spirituality is the understanding that there is an intimate connection between the physical and the metaphysical realm. From this understanding, the goal of spiritual practice then is to live life in such a way as to maintain a sacred connection between the physical abode on earth and the spiritual abode in the spirit realm. The Lakota look to Woope Sakowin: The Seven Spiritual Laws of the Lakota as their source of guidance to, as is commonly said in Unity, “give feet to their prayers.” This session will describe each of the seven laws and their positive, practical application, followed by discussion on their parallels with Unity teachings.
June 9: Sam Lee, A Taste of Non-Violent Communication.
NVC is a method of communication founded on the belief that if individuals can recognize and express their own needs, as well as the needs of others, conflicts can be resolved. NVC helps people to settle disagreements and resolve their differences. NVC places a strong emphasis on fostering compassion, empathy and honesty and focuses on facilitating peaceful dialogue between disputing self, family and communities and organizations and countries. As we exercise NVC, we affect our spiritual nature by identifying and being sensitive to our own personal needs and the needs of others.
June 16: Ron Karstetter, Unity’s Spiritual Practice of Metaphysical Bible Interpretation.
From its beginnings, Unity has considered the Bible to be its basic textbook of Truth and a manual for the unfoldment of the human soul. While Unity encourages readers of the Bible to study it as a historical document, our main approach to biblical study is metaphysical. In other words, we look for the spiritual meaning underlying everything. In doing so, we see people, places and events mentioned in the Bible as representative of an idea or a state of consciousness. In this session, we’ll review the basics of metaphysical Bible interpretation, and have the opportunity to explore the metaphysical interpretation of passages from both the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament.
June 23: Sam Lee, Another Taste of Non-Violent Communication.
See June 9 (above) by Sam Lee. There is no prerequisite; you need not have attended the June 9 session to attend this session.
June 30: Summer Break begins.
We start again in September.
