Who are we?
Giving Up Suffering for Lent Part 3
Rev. Mary Beth Ellis
This month’s Truth Lessons are based on the Buddhist Four Noble Truths, which are all about giving up suffering. It is an apt topic, since Unity is privileged to be welcoming the Tibetan Buddhist monks from The Drepung Gomang monastery in India, who will be doing a special meditation at the 11:00 Sunday service on March 19. This week’s lesson concentrates on identifying the suffering in our lives so that we can eradicate it: facing the dragon in order to slay it.

Spiritual  LINKS
We at Unity are open to many paths which lead to the Universal One or God.  We study the Bible metaphysically, and we have hosted Buddhist monks from the Sera Jey Monastery in India, Swami Sankarananda, and followers of KaHuna, the native Hawaiian religion.  We have ongoing classes on  A Course in Miracles and   Science of Being, led by Rudolf Steiner students Renée and Burt Lattimore. We frequently reference Buddhism, Hinduism, the Sufis, and Gurdjieff, and we will be starting a Yogananda Sunday school class soon, all in an effort to access Christ Consciousness. Most importantly, we endeavor to let that Consciousness guide our daily lives. We want to “walk the talk” and be that which we study, as Unity co-founder and mystic Charles Fillmore succeeded in doing.

We are a center of practical spirituality; thus, we enrich our lives through books, music, and healthy lifestyle choices, reinforcing the fact that all beings are one with each other and with the Divine. We believe that this divine connection and perfection can and should pervade our lives. We want to connect the dots between the intellectual, spiritual teachings and our daily endeavors.

We are a very open-minded family of spiritual seekers, and we invite others to explore these spiritual ideas with us.
