“One Presence, One Power: Everything Else Is Commentary” with Rev. Dr. Thomas Shepherd

Dr. Tom Shepherd brings this Unity basic principle to life with stories from his long career as an Army Chaplain, public school teacher, Unity minister, and seminary professor. As an agent of divine love, how do you bring words of healing to a young soldier sitting in a cell for killing his girlfriend? What comfort can you offer to a woman whose husband physically abuses her regularly yet she refuses to leave him? How do you respond to a bright young gay man, a talented florist by profession, whose first words are, “I want you to do my funeral.”

Dr. Tom weaves a rich tapestry of spiritual anecdotes drawn from forty-eight years of ministry and based on the bedrock Unity belief that God is the energy by which the very cosmos exists. Not an abstract lecture, but a Unity talk designed to give you tools to respond to life in a whole new way.

SCS 100: Bible Overview: Hebrew Scriptures with Rev. Dr. Thomas Shepherd

The Hebrew Scriptures (known as the “Old Testament” in the Christian world) are at the root of three major world religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Hebrew Scriptures are a collection of fascinating and sometimes confusing stories, poetry, wisdom sayings and inspired visions. While some stories in Hebrew Scriptures are little known outside scholarly circles, others have become commonplace in conversion, e.g. “David vs. Goliath.” Students will explore the history and development of Hebrew Scriptures, thereby acquiring a solid foundation for continuing study and exploration. | Syllabus

SCS-120: Jesus’ Teachings with Rev. Stacy Collins

Teachings about the Gospels have usually portrayed Jesus Christ as the “Great Exception” to being human. However, by focusing upon his sayings, we can see Jesus as the “Great Example” for Spiritual Awakening, Empowerment, and Transformation. By exploring the teachings of Jesus, rather than the teachings about Jesus, we can follow that example. Students will develop a deeper and more practical understanding of Jesus as Master Teacher and Wayshower through reflection upon his sayings and methods. In this way, they will learn to build a strong spiritual foundation for “Christ Consciousness.”  | Syllabus Coming Soon

HTS-130: Prosperity with Rev. Michael Gott

In Unity, “prosperity” means much more than material wealth or financial security. True prosperity includes a consciousness of living in a bountiful universe, having a constant flow of provision for all needs and expanding awareness of the Divine Source. Students will explore the spiritual principles of prosperity in the teachings of Charles Fillmore, Eric Butterworth and different contemporary teachings.  This course helps students explore the broader meaning of prosperity beyond “material things” and their beliefs about money, abundance and lack.  Students will create practices for rising above the limitations they hold about prosperity, and discover ways to address their own unexamined, unconscious assumptions about abundance, giving and generosity. | Syllabus

HTS 125: The Twelve Powers with Mary Fehr, LUT

As a result of his inner exploration and experience, as well as his metaphysical interpretation of the Bible, Charles Fillmore developed a powerful tool for spiritual development and healing commonly known as “the twelve powers.” The teaching and practice of the 12 powers includes awareness of “power centers” in the body, similar to the “chakra” system in yoga. The system connects the power to spiritual qualities symbolically associated with the 12 Disciples of Christ, the Christ is symbolically associated with the Spiritual or Higher Self. Students will explore and experientially apply the 12 power system as a way of realizing and releasing their inner divinity. | Syllabus
