July Series: "THE DIVINE DANCE" 
 
The remainder of 2020 is going to look very different than how we started the year. What we hoped would be temporary has become a trans-formative shift that will have lasting effects.

There's a time and season for everything under the sun. In our earth experience there's a time to be dependent, needing help from something or someone else. There's also space in our time-line when we are co-dependent, both in healthy and unhealthy expressions. And of course, we all go through a time of wanting and even demanding our independence. Then something happens as we move deeper into the light of pure presence where a realization occurs.
We begin to grasp the idea that this human existence is really a play - a theater production - a drama. We become aware that there's something deeper behind it all. As our soul chooses to awaken the truth of our oneness with everything and everyone, we start to see behind the veil that has so often blurred our inner vision and dimmed our view. In this space, we realize our interdependence. 

With our hearts and minds wide open, let's step onto the dance floor with the desire to simply engage in each step of the Divine Dance. After all, the whole point of dancing is the dance itself!
 

Mark your calendars for July 19th for a special Sunday Celebration service

If you are ready to get out and see your fellow Unity family members, Rev Jon and the Board would like to invite you to an outdoor Sunday Celebration service at Audubon Acres on July 19th at 10 AM.
The park is located at 900 N. Sancturary Rd in Chattanooga over by the Hamilton Place mall. Rain date is set for July 26th. 
This beautiful setting has been reserved only for our group and we will be following all CDC protocols. Facemasks and social distancing are required. Sorry no hugs just yet!
You will need to bring a lawn chair and a sun umbrella. Please note that the restrooms will be closed.
Of course, the service will still be live-streamed for those who are more comfortable staying at home.
 

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

ON-GOING EVENTS:

EARLY MORNING MEDITATIONS
Every week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 6:30 AM on Jon Scott's Facebook Page, Rev Jon hosts a time of meditation to start your day off in a most peaceful and spirit-filled way. Just in case you are not up that early, each meditation is archived on Unity of Chattanooga's Facebook page so you can watch at your convenience.

MIDWEEK CHECK-IN 

Rev Jon takes on a new book to discuss for the Wednesday Night Midweek Check-in at 12 Noon 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. 
This virtual class will be archived on Unity of chattanooga's Facebook page so you can watch it at your convenience.
