7-Week Book Study

Weeks of Sept 14 – Oct 26

For our fall book study program we’ve chosen Seven Thousand Ways to Listen: Staying Close to What is Sacred by Mark Nepo. This book is a moving exploration of self, our relationship with others, and a remarkable guide to the many ways we are called to redefine ourselves and to name what is meaningful as we face life’s challenges.

Sunday speakers will provide lessons corresponding with the study topics. Please join us for this inspiring spiritual journey! Free; love offerings graciously accepted.

Join Rev. Alyzsa Van Til at Unity of Santa Rosa on Monday evenings, 6:30-8:00pm (Sept 15 – Oct 27).

Discover Passion as Parable

Workshop with Rev. Debra O’Rourke

Sunday, Oct. 12, 1-3pm

Spirit speaks to us through that which we love — our activities, hobbies, pastimes — and there is much more we can learn by looking at these through the lens of metaphysical interpretation. We’ll warm up on some metaphysical Bible interpretation and then refocus that lens on our own passions, hobbies, sporting activities, whatever tickles YOUR fancy, floats your boat, expands your heart. This is a fun, creative and eye-opening workshop that unlocks wisdom you’ve been carrying with you throughout your life.

$25 Suggested Love Offering

Debra ORourkeRev. Debra’s spiritual journey was jolted into high gear when her teenage son passed away from cancer. Every aspect of her life changed. She left a successful career in California and moved to Oregon, where she was hired as a part-time bookkeeper at Unity of Corvallis. Over time, grief, healing, and the transformative power of love and community did their work, and she did hers. Debra became fully ordained as a minister, and simultaneously earned her Licensed Unity Teacher credential. She served as the Associate Spiritual Director at Unity of Corvallis. A compassionate healer, gifted teacher and loving presence, Debra brings a delightful combination of humor, heart and head to everything she does.
