People who are unfamiliar with the Bible sometimes imagine that if they just read it, they would understand it. But, after one or more attempts, many conclude that the Bible is a book of stories about ‘impossible’ things. In their view, it appears to have been made-up.
Jesus said, “Do not judge by the appearance of things, but judge by the reality”. This is somewhat like, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but far more important.
The term “worldly wisdom” or being “worldly wise” refers to “street smarts” (as in being able to successfully navigate through worldly matters. It includes such things as knowing how others think, being more clever than others, anticipating difficulties and figuring out how to come out on top. These are learned skills and they can often lead to “worldly” success. One problem with “worldly wisdom” is that someone who is even more skilled, more clever and more nimble is bound to come along. Another problem is that “worldly wisdom” cannot keep anyone sane, healthy, inwardly cheerful or deeply satisfied.
By contrast, “spiritual wisdom” works perfectly in the material and spiritual realms at the same time. When “spiritual wisdom” interacts with “human knowledge” a person becomes successful, healthy, sane, satisfied and cheerful. Energies flow unsummoned, from within, as you enjoy an easy balance in all matters.
Jesus had a highly effective method of teaching “spiritual wisdom”. You are encouraged to attend.

“The Road to Freedom 2” — New-Life Series
Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 11:00 am

Unity’s teaching are of the “mystic” type, akin to esoteric Catholicism, Zen in Buddhism, Kabbalah in Judaism, Vedanta in Hinduism and Sufism in Islam. If you put different kinds of mystics in the same room, they will agree with and clearly understand one another. Needless to say, Jesus was a mystic.

Everyone knows that Jesus said, “He that has ears to hear, let him hear.” What many do not know is that variations of this statement occurred long before Jesus’ time. To have “ears to hear” means to grasp the highest “spiritual meaning” of a teaching.

Great teachers, however, always “teach” on multiple levels at the same time, so that there is something of value for every student. When applied, by anyone, the teaching always produces “great results” regardless of one’s age, interests, needs or circumstance.

By following and applying Jesus’ method, his Disciples not only facilitated miracles themselves, but used Jesus’ method to teach others to do what he had taught them to do. Christianity exists today because of Jesus’ method.

“The Road to Freedom” — New-Life Series

The five “major” religions are Christianity (33%), Islam (21%), Hinduism (14%), Buddhism (6%) and Judaism (.22%). Sixteen percent identify themselves as “non-religious” and the remaining 10% hold to various indigenous religions.

Yet despite the massive sizes of the major ones, each inevitably subdivides itself – again and again. This is actually their strength, NOT their weakness. Religious bodies “divide” because different segments of people interpret, understand and experience “The Divine” differently.

For example, most of the priests, in Jesus’ day, could not fully understand his teachings because they were ‘literalists’ and he was a ‘mystic’. In other words, while the ideas were the same, they were differently understood, practiced and taught by Jesus. As he said, “Wisdom stands or falls by her results”.

Unity’s teachings are of the “mystic” type, akin to esoteric Catholicism, Zen in Buddhism, Kabbalah in Judaism, Vedanta in Hinduism or Sufism in Islam. If you put mystics in the same room, they will agree with and clearly understand one another. Needless to say, Jesus was a mystic.

On Sunday, you will see what made Jesus’ method so remarkable.

The Divine Idea of “Newness” — New-Life Series
July 22, 2018 at 11:00 am

Don Mills Public Library
888 Lawrence Avenue East
Auditorium

Children love surprises, hugs, gifts and laughter. Children love to learn, move and celebrate. Children love to explore, think and try new things. Children can’t wait for their first day of school. Children can’t wait to get outside and play. A child’s life is centred in “newness”.

Some people continue to cultivate their joy for living, but far too many begin to think of their lives as monotonous, dull and boring.

The Bible reveals a “path”. Through stories it describes the purpose and the meaning of life. It focuses on the relationship between people and God. On one side, the Bible reveals typical human thought and behavior – of saints and scoundrels – just like today. Nothing has changed. However, on the other side, the Bible reveals that God is ever-present – behind the scenes. Some people in the Bible knew this but most did not. Has humankind “evolved” at all? It seems not. (If you need further confirmation, read any of Shakespeare’s plays – from 400 years ago; yet human dynamics remain unchanged).

Understanding God is really simple. God is about “creation”, “newness”, “life”, “love”, “joy”, “peace” and “contentment”.

If living your life as joyfully as a young child if of interest to you, then we invite you to join us.

“Life – part 6” — A Really Big Spiritual Idea

Birthday parties make children aware of their “age” almost immediately. In fact, most milestones in a young person’s life are associated with “age”, such as starting school, learning to drive or being able to vote. Hence, children are usually in a big rush to get older.

Their attitudes typically reverse not long after reaching young adulthood because they see themselves getting “older” — more quickly than they expected. Then, by 40 the “age-germ” often infects them with troubling fears about getting too “old” too soon.

Human beings are the only life-form on earth that cares about its “age”. Unfortunately, people tend to think about “age” far too often, and far too negatively for their own good.

This Sunday’s lesson will offer some enjoyable, interesting, helpful and liberating insights into the issue of “age”.

Are you ready to look at yourself and your life in a new light? Forget the World Cup match and do something that will actually help you! (You can watch the replay later :).

“Life - 5” — A Really Big Spiritual Idea
This Sunday at Unity!

While “energy” is a major aspect of “life”, we must also include the necessity for “intelligence”. Each type of life-expression has certain types and degrees of intelligence. On earth, human beings have, inarguably, been endowed with the greatest access to intelligence.

A worm, for example, has the necessary intelligence to do what worms do, as do all other creatures and animals. But, human beings belong to an entirely different order of life. “Personal responsibility” provides one clear example of the difference. No one expects a spider, snake or lion to “think twice” about what they do. They just do what they do.

People are infinitely more complex – literally. People are profoundly self-conscious. They ponder matters in terms of time, goals, advancement, potentialities and possibilities. More importantly, human beings can invent, create and tap into levels of intelligence that transcend anything known to themselves or others.

Your life is a gift that you have barely begun to unwrap. More life awaits, for those who are interested in pursuing it.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Amen.
