CLASSES

A COURSE IN MIRACLES                                                                                        Wednesdays – 4:30 – 6:00 P.M. in the UCHC Library Facilitator: Barbara Evans

A Course in Miracles as a complete self-study spiritual thought system, emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.” Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles, therefore, is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.  This three-volume curriculum consists of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, and focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. Love Offering received for this class.

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS

 

 

THE CENTER OF CALM MEDITATION GROUP

Meets at 10:30 A.M. on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. You are invited to join us – in person or in spirit – and to join with us as we strive to be a calm center and a positive force in our church, our community and our world.

It is often said that prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God – but we need to remember that God doesn’t shout; He speaks to us in “a still small voice”(1 Kings, 19:12). If, in meditation, we are to hear that still small voice we must develop good listening skills. We must learn how to quiet the continual chatter that goes on in our minds, and we must learn how to focus, and filter out the external distractions that compete for our attention. There are many tools and techniques that are helpful in that regard; but the most important element in the practice of meditation is practice – and a heart-felt desire for communion with the Divine.
In today’s world as never before, we need to listen for that still small voice. There is comfort and guidance to be found in the silence – guidance which will lead us safely through the turmoil and chaos that seems to dominate almost every aspect of modern life; and comfort in knowing that our lives are centered in the all-pervading, all-encompassing eternal life and love of God.

Al-Anon members are people, just like you, who are worried about someone with a drinking problem.  There is no magic formula that enables you to help someone stop—or cut back—on his or her drinking. Alcoholism is a complex problem, with many related issues. But Al‑Anon can help you learn how to cope with the challenges of someone else’s drinking.
