Saturday, September 15th at 7p.m. Special Comedy Concert World-renowned Steve Bhaerman

performer and uncommon-tator Steve Bhaerman. The Swami, whose
favorite yoga pose is tongue-in-cheek, is the spokesperson for a new
non-religion, FUNdamentalism (accent on “fun”). Says the Swami, “I
got struck by enlightening during a brainstorm.” Swami has shared the stage with the likes of the Dalai Lama, Bruce Lipton and others. Tickets are now on sale: $20
in advance, $25 at the door. To purchase tickets: call or email the office, or purchase online
(extra $1.69 fee) at: brownpapertickets.com/event/3572370. We hope to fill the place up so

Thursday, September 13th -
Unity’s World Day of Prayer To commemorate the 25th anniversary of this
global event, we’ll be having an all-day
(9a.m. - 4p.m.) prayer vigil in the Martin Peace
Chapel. It’s not about knowing the “right” words, it’s simply a matter of coming apart
from the busyness of our lives & allowing
ourselves to embrace Love … Be as Love.
Come sit for a few minutes or stay in the
beautiful energy all day. This year’s theme is, “Courage to Heal” and the affirmation is, “As I
heal in body, mind and spirit, I support healing
in my family, my community, the earth and the
world. Centered in Pure Being, I am a healing
presence.” We invite you to bring forth your
own courage & meditate on what is yours to
do for healing yourself, your relationships,
your world. We will have special prayer flags
available in the weeks leading up to the event
for you to include your personal healing

We all enjoy Hospitality as part of our Sunday Celebration. It's so nice to stay afterward and bask in the glow of the talk and music with everyone. It's even more enjoyable when there's some yummy food. We do our best to maintain a minimum selection (which is what you'll find in most Unity centers). Beyond that it's up to each of us to make it even more special. Please consider bringing some left-overs, or anything else, once in a while
An Invitation to Share Hospitality
Hospitality: It ’ s up to all of us ... if we each brought a “ little left - over ” that is in the fridge, we ’ d have a feast! AND IF WE EACH BROUGHT A LITTLE REAL FOOD, AND LESS SUGARY STUFF, OUR BODIES WOULD BE SOOOOO HAPPY, OUR CHILDREN WOULD GREATLY BENEFIT, AND THEIR PARENTS WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL, TOO!!!!!!
HEALING HAND TO MOTHER EARTH **Warm up your engine & car interior by driving instead of idling – changes in technology & electronic fuel injection have eliminated the need to warm up before driving in freezing temps
**Turn off your car ignition if you ’ re idling for more than 10 seconds - idling your car for more than 10 seconds burns more fuel than restarting your car. Turning off your engine to text, to wait for someone or when stopped for construction are easy ways to stop spewing smog/environment - killing carbon & nitrous dioxide & help the planet as well as our beloved Lake Tahoe
**If you have school - age children, ask the principal to enforce a no - idling policy for buses & cars waiting for school to be let out
YEP LEADERS NEEDED! If it is to be, it’s up to us: Now Seeking Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) leaders for our Sunday programs, so we can keep our program alive.
