Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 Study Group/Classes begin
See 2019 schedule at Curriculum / Calendar page.
Whether you are a student looking to acquire credit toward a Religious Studies degree or seeking a community of like-minded New Thought friends, this is an inviting way to achieve those desires. Topics and books used will follow those posted on the Curriculum schedule.
Be sure to contact Dr. Carla to "register" and for more details and location.
Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019 Service at 10:30 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Carla Ryan will be the guest speaker at Unity Grand Valley (at the Redlands Community Center, 2463 Broadway Grand Junction). Start the new year with an uplifting message and set your 2019 intentions through the "white stone" ceremony - a favorite of many.
Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019 Wild Hearts Club (for Women of GJ)
In the work by Brene' Brown, Braving the Wilderness, she writes about people having a "strong back. soft front. wild heart." in their journey of courage and vulnerability... to "stand alone and brave the criticism, fear, and hurt." She also states that while "a wild heart is not something you can always see... it is our greatest spiritual possession."
This, then is the inspiration and your invitation to a journey into the wilderness of life with other like-minded, strong women to become braver together, grow in spiritual awareness, and have fun. You are invited to participate in a women's group known as "Wild Hearts Club" (for Grand Junction Women) that is forming in January 2019.
Call it a vision or a mission or a purpose, but let's start with these ideas in mind:
- to encourage self-awareness and personal growth in one another
- to engage in community events and encourage the personal interests of group members
- to learn together how to be brave
- to be creative
- to have fun
An initial idea is to meet twice each month:
- one time as a discussion group on a book or topic we're exploring
- one time to attend a local community event (public or hosted privately by one of our members)
You could attend one or both gatherings. The book/topic study, held at a specific host location, will ask for a love offering donation toward the host's facility rent. You are invited to the initial organizational meeting on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. to Noon at Unity Church of Grand Junction (3205 N. 12th Street, GJ 81506). ***Third Saturday of the month.***
Also, as the potential "founding" members of this group, you are also invited to submit your ideas for a symbol or logo to represent our group in the media and promoting efforts. Something that:
- represents a "wild heart";
- speaks to the Divine Feminine;
- you are willing to allow the group to utilize; and
- can be reproduced in print or digitally.
Could you have it ready by the January 19 meeting? If enough ladies create options, we can vote on the one the best speaks to our group's identity. Give it some thought. There are talented artists in this group.
