Our Unity on the North Shore family is creating sacred space, fellowship, support, and learning for all ages that you can experience from the comfort of home throughout the week.  We invite you to nourish your soul by connecting with our online programs:
 
  • Sunday Service streams live on Zoom from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and features music, meditation, message and practical application from Revs. Kurt and Christina and a member of our Chaplain Team.  Garden Chat Fellowship will immediately follow the livestream.  Go to https://www.unityns.org/civicrm/event/info?id=1403&reset=1 to register to get the Zoom Link.
     
  • Soul School for kids and teens is also on Zoom 9:15-10:25. Classes begin with a simple check-in and sharing to catch up with how everyone is doing, then the session breaks into class “rooms” within the meeting, so our classes can do their own lessons.

Love Offering

A Course in Miracles is a spiritual path that helps to remove the blocks that keep one from experiencing God's Love. The Course teaches how to heal our relationships with self and others through practicing its unique method of forgiveness. As a result of practicing forgiveness with the guidance of their Internal Teacher, participants expect to experience more peace in their lives and are led to an ever-deepening understanding of the Course's principles.
