Sunday Conversations, "Lessons in Truth"
"Lessons in Truth" is a clear, concise representation of New Thought philosophy and metaphysical Christianity. The spiritual concepts presented in these 12 lessons show us how to increase our personal empowerment and enhance our spiritual growth. Dr. Cady teaches that our lives can be transformed by the power of our thoughts, words, and beliefs. She encourages us to find our truth as it is written in our own hearts and then apply these truths in every area of our lives.

Encountering God in Everyone and Everything:  
Using "One Wheel" to Demonstrate Unity Principles
with Cari Bourette, PsyD, LUTC
One Wheel is a synthesis of the common threads found in many religions and in ancient worldviews of connection and unity. After learning the basics of this useful tool, and with Unity’s first Principle as premise (There’s One Power, One Presence active as the Universe and as my life), class activities will facilitate demonstration of Unity’s third Principle for yourself (We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held in mind).  The experience of Unity’s Principles will be further reinforced by the six steps of the Mystical Path as presented by Jim Rosemergy. This class is offered on a love offering basis, as Cari Bourette is quickly finishing up her Licensed Unity Teacher Certification.
