Is There a Law of Gratitude?

November 7, 2019

Join us on Sunday, November 10th, to hear our former Spiritual Leader, Lynn Kendall, speak on gratitude. Being a Unity student for most of her life has fostered in Lynn a profound spiritual curiosity. Unity teachings encourage her curiosity and desire to seek spiritual fitness. After seven years of retirement (“I can’t believe that,” she says), she remains profoundly grateful for her years with Unity of Fort Collins.

 

From Lynn:  

Gratitude is one of my favorite subjects. I am looking forward to being with you to explore some question. Why show gratitude? Is it just the right thing to do, or does it have some other intrinsic value? Demonstrating sincere gratitude takes energy and thought, and having an attitude of gratitude requires the conscious effort of being thankful. So how can practicing gratitude have a permanent effect on you and those around you?

 

 

Heal Your Life and Live Your Dreams by Connecting with God, Self, & Others.

October 31, 2019

 

Join us as our 3rd Spiritual Leader husband and wife team, Nat & Suzanne Carter, speak for us this Sunday, November 3rd.

 

From them:  At the core of every spiritual tradition is the experience of oneness and the practice of love. Each of us is called to connect to the Truth of who we are. When we do this, we find ourselves in oneness with all of creation. Then, from the depths of connection, we can be transformed and make a difference in the world.

 

Though we have different gifts to use in ministry, this talk presents what we believe is the essential reason we are all here:  To connect with God, Self, and Others and fulfill our own personal purpose.

Help Me.

October 24, 2019

 

On Sunday, Oct. 27th, our 2nd candidate will give his talk on the power of vulnerability:  Help Me

 

Many of us were taught to “just do it.” Many of us are too timid to ask for help. Some of us see getting help as a sign of weakness. Let’s explore vulnerability and the power it possesses. It could change your life.

Dancing with the Divine.

October 17, 2019

 

Join us as our first Spiritual Leader candidate,  Liz Luoma, gives a workshop this Saturday, October 19th entitled “The Still Small Voice, Tuning into Divine Guidance.” That workshop is from 1pm – 4pm here at our Unity.

She will also be speaking on Sunday morning followed by a meet-and-greet with snacks after the service in the sanctuary – while the Seed Broadcasting event is happening in the backyard.



In  life we all face challenges which are actually just opportunities for the Divine to come into a greater expression of Itself in and as our lives! What if everything we experience is really just an opportunity to learn a new language, the intimate language of the Divine.

Come join Liz as she shares more about this language and how learning to Dance with the Divine can greatly improve, enhance, and enrich our lives in all ways!!

 

Liz is a dynamic speaker, teacher, and a licensed, ordained minister who recently served as the minister at the Spiritual Center for Positive Living in El Dorado Hills & as the Senior Minister for 6 years at the Center for Spiritual Living Tahoe-Truckee, just to name a few of her accomplishments.

Side Effects.

October 10, 2019

 

Join us as our own Julie Legg guest speaks for us on Sunday and then officiates our annual Pet Blessing.

 

About her talk:  We usually think of “side effects” as being negative, as in when we take a drug to assist with curing a disease, and the side effects of said drug are actually worse than the original disease.

 

However, what if we changed our thinking about side effects, and we began to see them as positive outcomes to events – perhaps even unwanted events – in our lives? This is the direction of this Sunday’s talk.

 

As an ordained Interfaith/Interspiritual Minister, Rev. Julie is available to serve your spiritual needs for weddings, funerals, baby & pet blessings, and spiritual counseling. She has been at Unity of Fort Collins for many years, is based in Windsor, CO, and is available to persons throughout Northern Colorado and the Denver area.
