Rescuing John’s Gospel from Its Creedal Captivity
John Shelby Spong, bestselling author and popular proponent of a modern, scholarly, and authentic Christianity, argues that this last gospel to be written was misinterpreted by the framers of the fourth-century creeds to be a literal account of the life of Jesus when in fact it is a literacy, interpretive retelling of the events in Jesus’ life through the medium of fictional characters, from Nicodemus and Lazarus to the “Beloved Disciple.” The result of this intriguing study not only recaptures the original message of this gospel, but also provides us today with a radical new dimension to the claim that in the humanity of Jesus the reality of God has been met and engaged.

Unity co-founder, Charles Fillmore said, “Jesus riding into Jerusalem means the fulfillment of the time when the spiritual I AM within us takes control and lifts all forces up to the spiritual plane of mastery, purity and peace.” Be with us as we honor the Christ in us and prepare to become everything God created us to be!
Crossing Out Service
Good Friday, April 14 at 7:00 pm
Lent is traditionally a time of letting go. And like our New Year’s Burning Bowl, the Crossing Out service offers you the opportunity to release anything keeping you from experiencing the fullness of your divine potential. It is a blending of contemporary music and meaningful Bible passages. All leading you to a deeper connection with the resurrecting power of “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27)
April 16 at 10:00 am

Grace is the term Dave Richo uses to describe any of those events in which help comes your way unexpectedly: when the solution to a perplexing problem just suddenly pops into your head; when you suddenly find the strength to rise to an occasion you didn’t think you could endure; when the next phase in your spiritual path becomes plain as day. Moments of Grace usually come as surprises, but, Richo shows, we can learn to expect them—for Grace is a resource any of us can access. He begins by showing where to look to recognize the Grace that surrounds you: in nature, in religion/spirituality, in relationships, in yourself. He then provides practical exercises for learning how to manifest Grace in your life–to recognize and claim the help the universe is constantly offering you.
