EVENTS

JULY

Fourth of July Celebration Coffee Hour - Sun., July 1, at 10:00 am & Noon.  Join us after our Sunday services on July 1 for food, fun, music and fireworks.  Sponsored by Captain America & the Firecrackers.  Special appearances by Ray Charles, Whitney Houston and the Avengers.

 

Creating Dynamic, Thriving Ministries - Sat., July 14, from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.  Please join us for this six-hour training for Board Members and other Community Leaders led by Rev. Phillip Smedstad, Certified UWM Transitional Ministry Specialist.  This training is for you if you love this ministry and know it is your spiritual home and if you think of yourself as a current or future community leader.  You will have the opportunity to learn:  how to co-create a dynamic, sustainable ministry, how to accelerate your spiritual growth through leadership, how to have more and deeper involvement here by more people, how to deepen trust and support emotional and spiritual maturity, proven "best practices" in ministry, and how to create a consciousness of true spiritual leadership.  Pre-registration is required.  Please complete a questionnaire available at the bookstore or request one via email at BoardofTrustees@unityoakpark.org.  A light lunch will be provided.  Love offerings will be accepted to help defray the cost of this training. 

 

You Got a Story to Tell - Tell It - Sun., July 22, from 12:45 - 2:15 pm.  This is an interactive storytelling workshop where the participants learn the basic steps required to formulate a story. We are all storytellers, some are seasoned, some need a reason, and some are naturals. Come and have a great experience that will help you tell stories that inspire, entertain, educate, and raise your spiritual consciousness.  The workshop will be presented by Kucha and Baba Tony, your favorite storytellers.  Please register in advance in the Book Room or Friendship Hall.  A love offering will be gratefully received.  

 

AUGUST

The Eye of the Storm: Living With No One and Nothing Against You - Sat., Aug. 11, from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.  One of the most powerful aspects of a thriving, healthy ministry is the ability to know that “nothing happens TO me.  Everything in my life happens THROUGH me.”  In this workshop, through lecture, discussion, and gentle exercises, you will have an opportunity to:  learn to become much more comfortable in the presence of conflict, celebrate the magnificent self that you are, learn to use your critical thoughts of others as powerful tools of self-healing, have a deeper experience of your power of creation (how you create every experience in your life), learn how to release painful patterns from your life, and experience deep forgiveness of yourself and people from your past.  Rev. Phil has led hundreds of workshops on personal transformation during the last 35 years. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as compassion, acceptance, and a sense of humor to each one.  A love offering will be received to help defray the cost of leadership of this workshop.  Lunch will be served at the center.  All congregants are invited to attend.  Advance registration is not necessary.

 

Baroque Concert - Sat., Aug. 18, at 6:00 pm.  Unity of Oak Park in collaboration with the Landowska Harpsichord Society presents "Ensemble of 4" in Music of German and French Baroque.  Featured performers are:  Iva Murray, soprano, Forrest Ransburg - flute traverso, Martine Benmann - cello, and Danuta Berger - harpsichord.  Suggested Love Offering:  $20.00.

We will discuss how to teach our children to live with loving kindness, mindfulness, and spirituality in the best way we can- by learning the Unity principles and modeling them ourselves. Please note that ALL ARE WELCOME.  Whether we are parents or not, have young children or old, we all have our own inner child that needs to be parented as well as family relationships in which we are being called to connect and grow ourselves. We will read books, listen to talks, and have discussion, reflection, and prayer around how to show up in our lives with greater intention and consciousness knowing we may falter but can make a choice to choose love again moment-by-moment. Facilitated by Lindsay Ambrose.
