Have you ever had a mystical experience? One out of three Americans say that they have, and once you have had a taste, you want to know more. What are the characteristics of a mystical experience, and how is it different from a miracle? 

Discover through age-old insights and interactive experiences, which Jon will guide you through, how your life's journey can be filled with wonder, awe, freedom, and bliss. His most recent book, "A Course in Mysticism and Miracles" makes Jon uniquely qualified to help you understand your own personal journey on this metaphysical path.

Unity's Tree of Love
Unity Spiritual Center has installed a beautiful "Tree of Love" plaque in the sanctuary as a permanent way to honor memories and to celebrate milestones - etching in time the people and events that are significant to our spiritual community. This is an ongoing project that will raise capital for future USC needs. The tree was installed to coordinate with the upcoming 30th anniversary of Unity Spiritual Center and will be formally dedicated on August 4, 2019. The pricing below is offered for the first phase, and is subject to change.



1 Engraved Leaf - $120.00
1 Engraved Stone - $480.00



Please consider purchasing one or more leaves or a stone in honor of yourself or a loved one. We also invite you to contribute to the Honor Stones for USC founders Walter and Kathryn Chauncey and for Rev. Audrey Palmer.

CD of the Week: 
 The "Miracle Trap" (CD #73)
 
 
Eric Butterworth
 
In this weekly Avery Fisher Hall Service, Eric makes the following points:
  • By definition, a miracle is an abrogation or a violation of the laws of nature.
  • Scientists don't discover the laws of nature, they invent them. So-called laws of nature are mere descriptions of what has happened in the past and what we have reason to believe will occur sometime in the future.
  • As things change, as we get new insights into the universe, we invent new laws to cover them, to cover our descriptions.
  • If the Biblical account of Jesus' "miracles" is literally true, then there are fundamentals of nature involved of which we're not yet aware. 
  • Jesus knew and practiced the healing art because he understood the spiritual laws covering healing. Jesus was the Christ Principle in full expression.
  • Jesus said: "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than me shall he do." When Jesus says "believeth on me," He is talking about that consciousness which He identified with.
  • In some way you have participated in the problems of your life and you must participate in the solution. Paul says, "Be ye transformed by the renewing of our mind." It happened in your consciousness and it must be changed in your consciousness.
  • So I say, don't expect a miracle. Expecting a miracle is putting the whole weight of your consciousness on the side of belief of a universe of caprice. Your faith is the key to the kingdom of the power within you to apply spiritual laws that transcend human limitation.(Article submitted by Pete Haugk)
