Fridays, 12 noon

With Rev Dr John Karn, Instructor

Foundations of New Thought spirituality is offered on behalf of The Emerson Theological Institute at City of Light (for credit or for life enrichment). The essence of this class is developing a better understanding of yourself and your relationship with the Universe. All those concepts we hear on Sunday are explained in more detail. You will also be exposed to several different spiritual practices and learn how to incorporate the ones that resonate with you into your daily practice for a much improved life. The textbook is the Science of Mind (1938 version) by Ernest Holmes.

What We Believe that makes us Different

Sundays, 9:30 AM 

With Rev Dr Charles DeTurk

You've probably heard it said that Unity is a way of life. That way of life is based upon certain principles and beliefs. Sometimes those beliefs appear to be in contradiction to the beliefs of our more orthodox brothers and sisters. When that happens, we might find ourselves confronted with questions, or even accusations. These questions used to bug Rev Dr Charles DeTurk until one day when he finally asked himself, "Just what is it that we believe?" The answer to that question evolved into 10 basic belief statements. Those statements are the foundation for an 11-week series Rev DeTurk will be teaching these classes on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m., November 4 through January 13, in Emerson Hall at City of Light. Each class is complete in itself. Though lives have been changed by attending just one of these classes, be there from the beginning. Everyone is invited. Love offering.
