BEING THE LIGHT 2020 TALK SERIES - with Rev. Jerry Farrell
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
 
It is all too easy to think that our real life is gone somewhere over the rainbow. We can start to feel that what we are left with is but a poor substitute for the real thing, and we can spend our time waiting and wishing for the old ways to return. Or we can take a second look for the real opportunities for us in this new normal. Please join us this Sunday as we once again discover 'that there is no place like home' in the here and now.  
 
The following Zoom link will take you directly to the Sunday Service.

WE MUST CONTINUE OUR EDUCATION
 
It may surprise you to know that attending church more frequently does not make white congregants less racist. On the contrary, there is a positive relationship between holding racist attitudes and white Christian identity among both frequent (weekly or more) and infrequent (seldom or never) church attenders. For an eye-opening article please read the following essay from The Atlantic here, written by Robert P. Jones, author of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity.
DREAMS AND OTHER MYSTERIES ON THE PATH with Dr. Nanci Shandera

IT'S BECOME A "THING"!
 
For the second week in a row a small group met, rested and shared time together in the shade of our trees. There is a slight breeze and the company of good friends. So far the groups have been about 3 people but 6 or 7 would be wonderful. Please consider joining them Thursday mornings from 9:30 am - 10:30 am here at UGC.
FROM THE BOARD
A Place of Judgement
 
Last week we went camping in the Cascades above Bend Oregon.  The trip was planned so that we could safely spend a few days with our grandkids during the pandemic.  We had a great time with each other and had an added bonus at the campground.  It gave my judgmental ego quite the workout.
 
We pulled up into our camping site and started setting up, carefully glancing to the sites to our left and right. Who were the people next to us? They weren’t families.  There were 3 young women in the campsite to our left and about 15 men in the two sites to our right. Our immediate thought was, “Oh no, these guys are partyers, noise makers. Crap, they’re going to destroy this beautiful setting with their obnoxious behavior.”  Oh, ego’s free riding judgment!  Then Cliff noticed that there were a couple of old guys – you know, the ones, our age – who were part of the group.  And they had games set up in their huge camping area – ring tosses, bean bags, strategy games.  Maybe they were a church group? Oh, yes, a church group would be quiet, probably to bed by 9 and up at 7.  This was looking good! 
 
A couple of the men wandered over towards our campsite and a feeling of dread sank all the way to my feet. The water spigot was on the edge of our site and they were coming over to fill their jug when it dawned on me.  These guys are homeless, camping out together. They moved like homeless people, had that defeated look in their eyes. Then they saw me looking at them and smiled. “Hi, ma’am. How are you today? Need some help?” I didn’t know my insides could smile, feel warm, and cringe all at once. But all those parts were in me.
 
The next five days I found my mind and heart drifting all over the place. How did they end up where they are? What defeated them? Less than. Their problems make them less than. Judgement. Ego. Love. Holding the Light. Ho’oponopono.  Helping myself be a better lightkeeper. Seeing their smiling faces, watching them gently listen and support each other. I am not better than they are. We are the same.
 
There were two vans, a truck, and a trailer parked in front of their campsites. The letters “Eugene Mission” Rescue + Revitalize + Restore painted on their sides.
 
In light, love and peace,
Marlene Bottenfield
 
With love filled hearts we continue to update our Wall of Remembrance.

BEING THE LIGHT 2020 TALK SERIES - with Patricia Haller, LUT
 
What is Your I AM?
 
When Moses was at the burning bush he said to God, “When I come to the children of Israel, and shall say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you; and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “I Am That I Am.” 
What Moses did not realize at the time, and probably most of us have not realized either, is that God was giving Moses the key to living the greatest life possible on this Earth. How are you using your "I AM" key?

HO' OPONOPONO PRAYER GROUP
with Claire Palmerino
 
We started this powerful practice Friday, June 26, and will continue for the following five weeks. You may join us at anytime to gather via Zoom from 10:30 to 11:00 to enter into Ho’oponopono prayer together. Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer form that heals through clearing the emotions and heavy thoughts we hold in our hearts and bodies. The prayer begins by focusing on a person, situation, or issue that triggers emotions that take us out of alignment with our Higher Self; as best we can, we acknowledge and allow those emotions/thoughts to surface without judgment. Then we engage with those emotions as we journey through the four steps of “I am sorry”, “Please forgive me”, “I love you” and “Thank you.” The 30-minute format will include one round of Ho’oponopono focusing on a public event or situation and a second round of Ho’oponopono focusing on persons/events in our individual lives. 
Facilitator: Claire Palmerino

FROM THE BOARD
Small group gatherings?
 
Hi everyone,
We continue to have new Covid 19 cases in Nevada County and, as you know, the BOT has agreed that we will not hold in-person services until the situation improves. At the same time, we are conscious that some people are suffering from anxiety and depression due to the prolonged restrictions in place due to the virus. There has been a request to have us hold some small gatherings to ease people's isolation. These would take place in the shade in the parking lot in the morning from 9-10am. To start with they would be just social events to give people a chance to meet. Masks would be required, and social distancing would be required. People can bring their own food and drink if desired, but no sharing of food would take place. If there is an interest, it might be possible to have supportive presentations as part of the gathering, such as how to cope with anxiety. 
The first step is to see if there is any interest and so we are asking that you reply to this email if you are interested in being part of such a gathering. The focus would be social support at this time. Chairs would be supplied by UGC. 
 
Rev. Jerry

DISMANTLING RACISM AND PRIVILEGE.
UPDATE
In a few weeks time we will set up a five week study of a special program to help us all look at our unconscious racism. We hope to have several groups on different days at different times to maximize the number of people involved. It isn't enough to be moved by what we see on TV, more is really required of us. It isn't good enough to say 'I am not racist", we must become antiracist and show it in our actions.
Now is the time and this is the program being offered. Will you join us and be a white ally? 
The program will initially be a five week small group discussion with videos, articles and recommended reading for all involved.Topics will include white privilege, white fragility and being anti-racist. 
Remember that racism is a heart disease but it is curable, and it begins in my heart.
Rev. Jerry
 
DISTANCE HEALING 
What is it? How Can it Work?
 
It has been months since our last in-person Energy Healing Clinic at Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center, but throughout this time of social distancing our Healers in Unity practitioners have offered distance healing to our clinic clients. What is distance healing and how can it possibly work? We are all part of one unified field of energy; therefore, separation through space and time is an illusion. An energy practitioner can work with the energies of a client even when the client is not physically present. In other cases, the practitioner may work with the client over the phone. Study after study have shown that measurable changes take place following energy work conducted even when the practitioner and the client are not in the same physical space. If you have been missing the opportunity to take part in our usual monthly clinics, do consider making an appointment with one of our skilled practitioners! For a list of practitioners offering their services, just go to www.unitygold.us and click on Energy Healing Community Clinics, or see the list of practitioners below.
 
Suggested minimum donation to Unity in the Gold Country: $15
