Creating heaven on earth can be done, you know. We're going to be doing a bit of that here at UNS on Saturday with the Interfaith Block Party. Ten faith communities are coming together with many other teachers, organizations, and performers to be catalysts of peace between our diverse populace. We stand together in support of the idea that we are more alike than we are different. And though our faiths have varied approaches, all honor the sacred. Out of many, we really do make ONE. I hope you and your family plan on attending this amazing and singular event produced by Unity on the North Shore and Spiritual Playdate. It will be a day you will long remember.
Sadly, I will have to miss Soul School on Sunday, as I care for my stepmom who took a bad fall (please pray for a swift healing for Kathy Jordan). I will see you at the Block Party or see you next week.
THIS SUNDAY IS YOUTH SUNDAY, where we go up to the Sanctuary near the start of the service for a special lesson with Rev. Kurt. So you'll want to make sure you're on time!
SOUL SCHOOL REGISTRATIONS ARE DUE:
See below to download, print and complete registration forms for each of your children. Bring them with you on Sunday!
FALL RETREAT REGISTRATION REMINDERS:
- YOU: Your registration and $82.50 payment are due to me on September 15. Please put them in my mailbox in the Church Office. Thanks!
This Week's Louise Hay Power Thought Card Affirmation: "I release all fears and doubts. I accept myself and create peace in my mind and heart. I now choose to free myself from all destructive fears and doubts. I am loved and I am safe."

This Sunday in Soul School
Soul School starts at 10:25 am each Sunday with our Sacred Circle (where we share the Daily Word, affirmations, and our love offerings). Please make sure your child is signed in by 10:20, so we can start on time and you can get up to the Sanctuary!
Unitots Childcare (Infant-PreK): Loving childcare in a free-play environment.
Unikids, Unitweens, Uniteens, and YOU: We continue our Soul School Orientation Month with Getting to Know You games and writing our class Heart Agreements.
Uniteens will be planning their PastaPalooza, and YOU will be planning their study and Fundraiser.
Time to Complete Soul School Registration
The start of a new Soul School year means that we need updated information about your child(ren).
Click Registration to download, print and complete a Soul School Registration form for each of your children for 2019-20 and return it to me by September 8.
For their safety and ours, your child(ren)'s registration must be complete before they participate in Soul School.
