“The Prodigal Son”
Rev. Dawna Mantei
In metaphysics, we understand that the stories in the Bible are not necessarily true, but they reflect different parts of ourselves, and we can and should learn from them. On Sunday, October 7th, I am starting a 3 part series on the Bible story, The Prodigal Son. Most people think the story is about a rebellious youth who goes off and squanders all of his money and is later forgiven by his father and comes home. If you read the first line of the story, it starts with “There was a man who had two sons.” So, it’s actually a story about a father and how he dealt with his difficult children.
In this series, we will be delving deeply into the prodigal son, the elder brother and the father. On Sunday, I will begin with the younger son; the one the Bible refers to as “The Prodigal.” You might identify with this kid if you’ve ever rebelled against the family, indulged in wine, women (or men) and song, or maybe sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. The word “prodigal” also means recklessly extravagant, wasteful. Of course, if you can’t relate to any of this, and you were always a perfect child and adult, then perhaps you will want to stay home on Sunday. On the other hand, if you are a normal human being like me, you may want to come early and sit in the front row.
Plan to attend Unity Center on Sunday when I will explore “The Prodigal Son” in all of us.
Welcome to Unity Center
I am grateful that your spiritual search has brought you in touch with Unity Center.
I believe we have been brought together by a Divine Appointment with Spirit.
If you are looking for a spiritual community that:
- Honors all religions, spiritual traditions, and individual spiritual journeys
- Has no strict creed or dogma.
- Provides a safe, nurturing environment in which you are empowered to express your self-discovery and spiritual potential.
- Believes all people are expressions of God’s love, and welcomes all people—no matter their age, gender, creed, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation, or any other way in which the human race divides its members.
- Promotes spiritual transformation in our personal lives, our community and our world.
…then I believe you will say the same thing so many of our members have said when they have entered our doors: "The first time I came to Unity Center, I felt like I had come home."
At Unity Center, we are dedicated to teaching and expressing a positive and practical approach to life. All of our classes and activities are designed to help people awaken to their spiritual nature and to express their divine potential in practical ways through the universal Truths that have been taught and demonstrated by all of the great Masters of Life!
Our beliefs are in harmony with the basic tenets of the world's religions and spiritual traditions that teach love. We encourage each person to pray regularly, think clearly, feel openly, to experience the love of their Source, individually, and to express that love universally.
We believe there is one God, called by many different names and found through many different paths. Wherever you are on your spiritual path, we welcome you, and I invite you to join us Sunday mornings at 10:30.
Peace in our time…
Rev. Dawna Mantei
