New January Series: "THE HOLY SHIFT" with Rev Jon
Starting Jan. 12th - It’s the start of a new decade and are you feeling a new eagerness for another new beginning?
This is the perfect time to allow yourself to be filled with a soft, steady, certain expectation of all that you desire to gently flow into your awareness.
We all know that deep down inside, we were meant for something more. Now is the time to tap the brakes of life and make a shift. Even making a slight shift in our thinking, our word choices, and behaviors can radically shift our actions and results. If we continue to identify ourselves with what we are capable of doing or producing and getting stuff done, this year will only stress you out. Instead, allow yourself to learn how to simply BE. Stay present and see yourself doing less and yet getting more done. The great irony is that when we are micro-managing and obsessing over details, we get in own way! Learn to live quiet and allow yourself to surrender for this is the path to freedom.
CLASSES AND EVENTS:
At Unity of Chattanooga, we offer some opportunities for you to grow spiritually, meet new friends, and just have fun. These workshops, classes, and on-going events will lift your spirit and give you something to help you with the real life issues you face during the week. Our Adult Education classes are usually 4-6 weeks long and are currently taught on Sunday afternoons at 12:30 following the Sunday service and Fellowship. The classes are based on books that follow the teachings of Unity or are in alignment with Unity principles. They help us to deepen our understanding of our spiritual selves to unfold our own path of spiritual growth. “…be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Romans 12:2
NEW MEMERSHIP CLASS
Become a member at Unity of Chattanooga by attending the New Membership Class on Sunday, January 26th, from 12:30 – 3:00 . Becoming a member of UOC indicates a definite, considered choice to be an integral part of this spiritual community. It represents a commitment to the manifestation of Unity principles in one's life, and a commitment to share in the joys and responsibilities of co-creating and financially maintaining this on-going Unity ministry. Membership in Unity also gives you the right to vote on important business matters at our Annual Meeting in February. Fill out a form in the lobby if you are interested. Please note, if you have been a member in another Unity church, you can transfer your membership.
Everyone is welcome to attend this class including those who just want to learn more about Unity but not become a member at this time.
Rev Jon takes on a new book to discuss for the Wednesday Night Midweek Check-in at 7 PM on the Unity of Chattanooga Facebook Page. He will be studying Lao-Tzu's book, Tao Te Ching
. The title also means the way of virtue. Please note that the version of the book that he will be reading is the translation by Stephen Mitchell.
Rev Jon says that the key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. In 81 chapters, Lao-Tzu's Tao Te Ching provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit, and teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao—the basic principle of the universe.
You can follow along and order your own book on Amazon Smile and support Unity of Chattanooga at the same time.
Even though a minister may not be in attendance each week, this group gets together over a cup of coffee or tea for friendly spiritual conversations on Thursdays at Noon at The Meeting House located at 3912 Dayton Blvd across from Food City in Red Bank. There is parking around the back of the building.
