Spirit Groups 
Circles of Gratitude
Signups begin September 10 
 
Spirit Groups are coming soon and will be focusing on Gratitude.
Beginning the week of September 24, participants will embark on an 8-week in-depth exploration of the role and practice of gratitude in our lives. 

By reading selected articles from Unity Magazine and Science of Mind magazine, plus excerpts from Eric Butterworth's books (Spiritual Economics and In The Flow), participants may embrace all aspects of grateful living.

Topics include gratitude as a causative energy, creating an emotional space for gratitude, expressing gratitude in relationships, understanding the wellspring of giving, and creative expression as an avenue for gratitude.  One week will be devoted to a service project selected by the group.
Each week includes an opportunity for deepening friendships, challenging ideas, spiritual growth, time to learn from others, participation in hands-on gratitude activities, and sharing in leadership roles for group enrichment.

All articles, quotations, discussion questions, activities and homework challenges are included in the Circles of Gratitude workbook.  No outside book is required. Participants are requested to commit to attend class for a minimum of six weeks.

Church doors will open at noon; the 30-minute service

This is open to everyone who desires time in the intimacy of group stillness (this is not guided meditation). Any questions,  please contact Rev. Linda Guy at 602-686-3552.

Women's Group Meeting
Laughter Yoga
Saturday, September 16 at 11:00am
   
Come get in touch with your inner child!  Laughter decreases stress hormones and boosts endorphin levels.  Irene Lundquist, Certified Laughter Leader, will briefly describe the origins of Laughter Yoga, and then lead us through 30 minutes of simple laughter exercises and breathing exercises.  (No, we are not going to get down on the floor or do yoga poses!) Our session will end with a 3 minute relaxation meditation.
Please join us in fellowship hall with a dish to share.  One word about our potlucks. We desire your company more than anything else. If you have food allergies or special needs, feel free to bring a brown bag.    Or, if you no longer like to cook for potlucks, please bring something easy, such as chips and dips or store-bought food.  Again, the focus is on fellowship and your presence is prized.

"WILLINGNESS: A willingness to try new things brings freshness to my life.  "You don't know unless you try"!  When I stretch myself to try something new, I discover adventures, communities, and new interests I wouldn't have known.  Deep joy may result, and even if I decide that it isn't for me - I've gained knowledge and expanding beyond my usual activities."  Consider reaching for a new experience.
