Unity Awakening Fall Small Groups Series



The I of the Storm

October 1 to November 12, 2017

Our Fall Spirit Group series will discuss the book The I of the Storm: Embracing Conflict, Creating Peace by Gary Simmons.

In this book we learn to go beyond merely managing the conflict in our lives to actually embracing the conflict, allowing it to teach us what we otherwise might not learn. This process leads to peacemaking ... whether it be within ourselves, in our relationships, or as a result of outside circumstances.

The author points us to the "I" of the storm of conflict, to our spiritual Self, as the means of realizing peace in our lives.

Rev. Russell will use the book as the inspiration for Sunday talks.

Contact Donna Lee, Small Groups Team Lead,, if you are interested in facilitating or hosting a The I of the Storm group.
