Working Towards Prayer
Saturday, September 19 • 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Rev. Rob Eller Isaacs offers this workshop to help participants summon a quality of attention, a way of being, he calls prayer. This class is ideal for people who are seeking to deepen their existing prayer life and for those who are aspiring to discover a practice of prayer that works for them. Register by contacting Marcy Mann-Anderson at email@example.com or 651-228-1456 x110. This class is free for pledging members and $75 for non-pledging members and friends.
Articulating Your Unitarian Universalist Faith
Tuesdays: September 29, October 13, 20, 27, and November 3 • 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. • Unity Church
Have you ever struggled with what to say after “I’m a Unitarian Universalist?” You are not alone. This five session class is designed to explore and practice what to say when we are called upon to declare ourselves religiously or illuminate some angle on this liberal religious movement that has touched and changed so many lives for the better. Such moments are precious opportunities to deepen our own path and perhaps grow a happy awareness in someone else about this rich living tradition. This series provides hopeful inspiration and resources, plus the opportunity for meaningful connection to fellow UUs. Look for a sign up list in the Parish Hall on Sundays or RSVP directly to Lisa Friedman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-228-1456 x107.

Sing in a Unity Church Choir!
Here at Unity Church we have a vital choral program and invite you to consider joining us this year. If you’ve been wanting to do this, how about this fall? For the adults, it is helpful to have some musical experience such as music lessons at some time in your life, or having sung with a choir. Of course, if that is not in your background but you have a passionate interest and the courage to jump into the flow of things in order to learn a new skill, we invite you to come and sing with us. We have a great time together!
Please contact Ruth Palmer, Director of Music Ministries, with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-228-1456 x118. First rehearsals for this church year are as follows:
