The Good News, According to Phil

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

In my younger days in Unity, I thought that thinking about my death was totally negative. All the affirmations celebrated vigor, youth, glowing health. The unmistakeable, though unspoken, impression was that wrinkles, graying hair, etc., were signs of faulty thinking, of not being spiritual enough.

Opportunities to Connect, Grow & Give

Unity Church of Bonita Springs provides new opportunities every month to connect with friendly people, explore new ideas, celebrate, and grow spiritually. Please check our Calendar for complete information about all the ways we can bless you!

how-then-shall-we-liveFour Big Questions
Saturdays, August 8-29, 1-2:30 p.m.
At the Unity Convention, which Rev. Phil attended in June, Wayne Muller was a presenter. His latest book is How, Then, Shall We Live? In it, he invites the reader to wrestle with four questions. One is “Who am I?” Another is “What do I ?” The third is “How shall I live, knowing I will die?” And the fourth is “What is my gift to the family of the earth?”

Rev. Phil presents an exploration of each of these big questions, one per Saturday, beginning on Aug. 8, at 1 p.m. It is not necessary to purchase the book. But it is necessary to be willing to explore!


Unity World Day of Prayer
Thursday, September 10, 2 p.m.
Silent Unity, Unity’s prayer ministry, sponsors all-day prayer events at Unity Village today. Our church participates in two ways: one, we send in a list of people we want held in prayer. Two, we hold a Prayer Gathering here at the church at 2 p.m. You are cordially invited to attend; there is more power generated when “two or more are gathered in my name,” as Jesus said.
