Homophobia and the Bible. 

This Sunday we honor the Christ as our Divine Nature, Father's Day and Pride Month all in one talk as Scott shares the truth about the Bible and its evolution from a document of unconditional love and kindness to a tool used by some to sow hate.  You won't want to miss this amazing topic.

Rev. Shipley Allinson

Mind Fast/Soul Feast Discussion Group

with Rev. Shipley Allinson

All are Welcome!

Starts Sunday 6/19 9:00AM

I was first introduced to Rev. Michael Beckwith in 1985 when I first attended Unity of Greater Portland. The minister there, Rev. Ken Williamson handed me a cassette tape of one of Michael’s services. I was totally blown away and I have been a “groupie” ever since!

As I have followed and grown in spiritual awareness, and re-reading his book, Mind Fast Soul Feast, I realized that in this book, Michael says everything I would want to say to people if I were still “preaching”, such as, “There is only One Power, One Presence, One Life and It is the very essence of your life. You are what you are looking for!!!

Therefore, when Spirit nudged me, I could not resist and decided to lead a Study/discussion group with the beloved congregation I now gather with on Sunday mornings.

This would be a “drop-in” group, Sunday Mornings, from 9 am to 9:45 am. The format would be to begin with prayer and then read one section of the book at a time and discuss—then end with a moment of silence and closing prayer.

I would like to begin Sunday, June 16. We will start with 7 weeks, continuing of there is interest. It is a drop-in group but I would request attendees arrive a few minutes early to help set up so we can start right at 9 am.

There is no fee unless you are inspired to give a love offering to the church. We will be meeting in the small room next to the bathrooms.

Book details: The book is no longer in print and it is not necessary to own a book as we can share when reading. However, one can purchase the book on Amazon and if you wish to avoid the very high price being asked, there are used copies for $6.39. (You will probably want to own the book!)

This is the process for finding the used copies:

40 Day Mind Fast Soul Feast by Michael Bernard Beckwith. When you first look on Amazon you will see a “Hardcover for $40” and “paperback for $99”.

Ignore that and go to “All buying options” and you will see “Used, like new for $40”—when you see that message look to the right and you will see the cover of the book—click on that and it will take you to “Hardcover $6.39”. There are many available if you are willing to follow this process.

Really looking forward to these discussions; Hope you will join me.

Peace and Blessings, Rev. Shipley
