Dr. Ruth Miller
February 17, 2019
Many Paths - One Mountain Top
Join Ocean Unity on Sunday February 17 when Dr. Ruth Miller will be our Sunday speaker. When Ruth Miller was a little girl, her aunt converted to Judaism, which began a lifelong exploration of various religious and spiritual traditions. In college Ruth studied anthropology (as had that same aunt before her) and she discovered a common core in all cultures and religions. Aldous Huxley's Perennial Philosophy and Joseph Campbell's work with myth also help us see that the journey may look different but the essence is the same.
Unity Worldwide Ministries 2019 Theme is One Humanity, Many Stories.

On February 24 Rev. Jean Celia will serve as Sunday speaker at Ocean Unity.

The Ocean Unity Book Club meets the second Tuesday of every month at Georgie's Restaurant in Newport at 11:30 am. The next meeting is on Tuesday, March 12th. The March book of the month is How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals. This restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals—Sy’s friends—and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world. Ocean Unity's monthly book club meeting is a time for friends to gather for a relaxing lunch and enjoy a friendly, lively discussion. Lunch is optional of course, and we welcome those who haven't read the book. All Book Club selections, as well as many other metaphysical, spiritual growth, self-help, prayer & meditation, and related titles are available in the Ocean Unity Bookstore following Sunday service around 12:00 Noon and on Fridays from 10am to 2pm.

All are welcome at Ocean Unity. We hope you'll join us for Sunday service!
