Recent and Upcoming Lessons
July 19, Rev. Margaret Flick
Lesson: The Zen of Simplicity
Special Music: Congregation
“Releasing what no longer serves us goes beyond getting rid of physical clutter. It is more about the clutter in our minds and our attachments to the past. If we really believe that God is within us, can’t we trust that we will have what we need?”
Rev. Margaret graduated from Unity Institute’s Master of Divinity program in 2010. She is a Unity minister and has served at Unity Palo Alto and Unity of Santa Cruz. She believes that prayer, gratitude, compassion and an open and receptive mind are prime ingredients for a heart-centered, thoughtful, peaceful and joyful life. Margaret lives in Kelseyville with her husband, Howie and volunteers for the Lake County Hospice bereavement program. She is a guest speaker at churches throughout the area.
July 26, Rev. Robin Gail
Lesson: “Standing in the Here and Now: How can we tell where we are when everything is moving?”
Special Music: Narayan & Janet
We only can tell exactly where we are by comparing ourselves to things around us. But everything is moving, so where the heck are we?
Rev. Robin is an ordained minister with Centers for Spiritual Living, and she has found a home here at Unity of Santa Rosa. She has retired twice — once from the Press Democrat in 2001, and again from the ministry in 2010. But having discovered Unity principles, it is her pleasure to share them whenever she can, and she simply can’t stay retired! She also speaks at the Unity churches in Ukiah and Lower Lake.

The radiant life of God is a healing power within us and can help with whatever troubles us. It is one of our 12 spiritual powers, responsible for producing and perpetuating life. Each one of us is on a healing journey to discover the power of life and to know the truth—that we are already whole.

Lesson: A&E Channel: Assumptions & Expectations
Special Music: Carol Manson
Gotcha – didn’t I?! You saw A&E and immediately thought something different, right? That’s my point – our assumptions are directly related to our expectations. What if your assumptions were based on a false idea? Hmmm….Could lead to an expectation that will likely not appear as you had hoped.

August 30, Heidi & Jen Listug
Lesson: If I were good enough: Awakening to the Divine Mother
Special Music: Maury & Cheri
So often in our lives we are bombarded with the message that we are just not good enough. How do we shield ourselves from the critical voices both external and internal that insist that we are less-than? The answer is found in the feminine face of God — the power of Divine Mother.
