Consciousness of Abundance
5-week Class with Rev Sandy

BEGINS TONIGHT!
Please use the Link Below to Register!
April 28 -- May 26, Wednesday Evening classes (5 consecutive weeks) via Zoom on: "Building a Consciousness of Abundance", 6:30-8:30pm EST.

Join Rev. Sandy for this exciting and informative class on building a prosperity consciousness. This is a 5-week class based on Eric Butterworth’s classic book, Spiritual Economics.

We will identify and begin to change limiting beliefs about money, health and love and learn to work with the flow of life, instead of against it.

This class is for those who are ready and willing to transform a consciousness of lack and limitation into one of unlimited abundance.

It is highly recommended attendees please read chapters one and two of Spiritual Economics, prior to the first class.

Online registration is required and the Zoom link will be provided in your registration confirmation email. The link to register is below.

There is a $20 suggested love offering per person, per class. Rev Sandy splits the love offering with Unity of Lehigh Valley 50/50. If you need a partial scholarship, reach out directly to Rev Sandy. Her information will be provided in your registration confirmation email.

Anyone wishing to attend this class may do so. You do not have to be a member or congregant of ULV. If you receive this weekly email update, follow our Facebook page, or our website, you are welcome to join the class.
Rev. Sandra Butler has been an ordained Unity minister for 17 years and was a minister at Unity of Fairfax for eight years. She is a transitional consultant with Unity Worldwide Ministries, specializing in guiding ministries in times of transition and considers herself a bridge to transformative change. Her current passion is learning and teaching about practical metaphysics.

Rev Sandy has been working with Unity of Lehigh Valley as our Transitional Consultant since July of 2020 while we search for our new permanent minister. Rev Sandy has become part of our ULV family and we are grateful for her expertise and service to our congregation. We are a blessed community.
