"The Science of Mind" 

Saturdays, 10am

​​With Rev Dr John Karn


What does prayer mean to you? How do you pray? Are you beseeching, bargaining, begging? Myrtle Fillmore, the co-founder of Unity, healed herself of tuberculosis through affirming prayer. Prayer is not beseeching, bargaining or begging, but practicing the presence, being in oneness with God first and affirming your desire. Join us for an "Affirmative Prayer Class" with Rev Dr John Karn through Feb 22. A prayer clinic will be held at 11am each week for anyone wanting to drop in to have prayer work done as part of this class.
