"The Twelve Powers of the Human"
A 12-week series starting in May with Rev Jon
The co-founder of Unity, Charles Filmore, came from a traditional Christian background but had some experiences that led him to explore a broader understanding of scripture and spiritualitywhich led him to a metaphysical understanding of the Bible and the life message of Jesus. Charles sat in meditation with the personality of each of the disciples Jesus chose in his ministry and discovered the spiritual qualities or powers that they each represented. In this 12-week series, Rev Jon will use Fillmore's exploration as the inspiration to see how freedom and strength can come from the development of these powers that we already have within us as well. This is a journey to consciously and intentionally connect with our higher-self to uncover each ingredient to the formula for living fully aware of and awake to the Christ we each one are.
May 26th - “12 Powers Contemplative Service”
Rev Jon will present an extended guided meditation and contemplative service this week as he brings to mind the three powers we've recently covered and holding space for those powers to arise within the depth of our beings.
We will become the river that flows to us, through us, and as us out into the world around us. We will unite our power in unison to send it out to the community of Chattanooga.
Bring your yoga mat if you would like, wear comfortable clothes, as Jon creates a hopeful and energetic heart as we sit in the presence of the Power we all have. The river is rising and flowing to our world through us as we open ourselves up to our unfolding potential.
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
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.
