Sunday, July 27th

10:30 am Service – Magnify Your Magic will be Jon West's theme.  We will explore the true magic of life: that the ultimate power and Source dwells in each of us.  Even now this power is radiating not only into our community, but across the universe.  How can we experience this reality at a deeper, more fulfilling level?

Summer Support for Unity:  Even while enjoying weekend adventures in the sun, you can conveniently keep supporting our wonderful spiritual center through Unity's SIMPLE GIVING automatic donation program.  To request a form, email unityval@riousa.com or call Géna at541-345-9913, ext. 11

 

A Message fromYour Ministerial Team

Warm and Fuzzy Magic

As the famous anonymous quote says (mistakenly attributed to Goethe): “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” 

So what are we doing to share the beautiful magic of our Spirit with the world? My two little dogs might answer this way:  “Gee Dad, every time you walk us in our neighborhood, we steer you toward two different houses where we’ve made doggie friends.  We want to say hello, brighten their day, and clean up any stray crumbs off their floor.” 

Through the boldness of our magical dogs, Donna and I now have an open invitation to show up uninvited at both of these houses.  Once inside, Sugar and Sparky cheerfully greet all the inhabitants whether two-footed or four.  Then they are free to snoop, sniff, and nibble whatever they find.  

Ah, the joys of having a purpose and fulfilling it.  It’s truly one of the best ways to make sure we’re shining our Inner Light where it’s needed and wanted.  Some of our animal friends know this even better than people! 

Joy and blessings on your path,

Jon West
