REV.  DR.  RUTH MILLER

The Power of Imagination

June 27, 2021

Ocean Unit​y was pleased to have Dr. Ruth Miller as our guest speaker on Sunday, June 27th. Dr. Miller is best described as a synthesist of all things relevant to consciousness, human potential, and culture. She works with academic institutions, individuals, nonprofits, churches, and small businesses to guide them through the confusion of today's world and into the emerging culture. The title of Dr. Miller’s talk was “Imagination is Powerful.” The human mind is remarkable in many ways, among them the ability - which apparently no other species has, to create images and emotions about what has not yet happened. We call it imagination. And today the use of that particularly human faculty is almost overwhelming in its use and application. Dr. Miller explores how our imagination guides us and sometimes misleads us in our day-to-day activities and our attempts to make things happen in our world.

Spiritual Understanding: Emilie Cady's Breakthrough

July 25, 2021

Ocean Unity was pleased to have Rev. Ruth Miller, Ph.D. as guest speaker at their virtual service on Sunday,  July 25, 2021. When Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, was looking for a way to simply explain what Unity was about, his wife Myrtle showed him a pamphlet by Emilie Cady that turned out to be exactly what he was looking for. Emilie Cady was a homeopathic physician and author of New Thought spiritual writings, including her 1896 book, “Lessons in Truth: A Course of Twelve Lessons in Practical Christianity.” On Sunday, Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller will tell us more about Emilie Cady and how she came to the understanding that became the basis for all Unity teachings for the past hundred years. Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller integrates new understandings of culture and consciousness in a way that “the rest of us” can understand. With degrees in anthropology, environmental studies, cybernetics, and the systems sciences, Rev. Miller taught in several colleges and universities while working as a futurist and organizational/community development consultant. An ordained New Thought minister serving Unity, Science of Mind, and Unitarian churches, she consults, writes, and speaks on the nature of consciousness and spirituality, focused on the future well-being of all humanity.

Aligning with the One Will

August 22, 2021

Ocean Unity was pleased to have Rev. Ruth Miller, Ph.D. as guest speaker on Sunday, August 22, 2021. Rev. Miller tells us that, in Unity, we say "there is one Power..." In other New Thought traditions, the focus is on the "One Mind." However, in both traditions we are part of and are guided and supported by that One. In her 12 lessons of Spiritual Science, Emma Curtis Hopkins explores each of the 12 aspects, or powers, of that One and helps us to understand that our lives are most satisfying when our will is aligned with the One Will that is constantly creating all that Is. On Sunday, Rev. Miller talked about how and why this alignment works to bring us joy and fulfillment in all areas of our lives. Dr. Ruth Miller is an ordained New Thought minister serving Unity, Science of Mind, and Unitarian churches. She consults, writes, and speaks on the nature of consciousness and spirituality, focused on the future well-being of all humanity. To learn more about Rev.

Order and Chaos

September 12, 2021

Ocean Unity was pleased to have Rev. Katrina Wynne as guest speaker at their virtual service on Sunday, September 12th. Unity’s September theme is all about order, and Rev. Wynne’s Sunday message is titled, “Order and Chaos.” Do you ever lament when life doesn’t go your way? Is there a wish for more order and consistency in the world? Have you experienced being ordered in a way that does not resonate with your being? Rev. Wynne explored these thought-provoking questions and discussed other aspects of order, with Unity values as the guiding principle. Rev. Katrina Wynne brings 28 years of Unity experience and professional psycho-spiritual awareness to her presentations with the hope of sharing the full spectrum of life’s experiences and wonders with others.

It's All in Divine Order

September 26, 2021

Ocean Unit​y was pleased to have Dr. Ruth Miller as our guest speaker on Sunday, September 26h. The title of Dr. Miller’s talk was “It's All in Divine Order.”  She shared many spiritual insights to help us during those times when we feel as if what's happening in our lives is not divine at all! What if we could find a way to always experience the omnipotent good in every aspect of our lives? In John's Revelation, we read that "the old heaven and earth shall pass away" and the Course in Miracles tells us that is because the separation between them is ending. What does that mean for us? Rev. Miller explored this possibility in her Sunday message, drawing on her research as a futurist to provide indicators in world trends that we can watch for.

ALLEN KLEIN

Finding the Divine in the World: The AWE Factor

November 14, 2021

We were pleased to welcome Allen Klein as guest speaker at Ocean Unity's virtual service on Sunday, November 14th.  Allen Klein's message was titled, "Finding the Divine in the World: The AWE Factor" which is based on his most recent book, The AWE Factor. The leading researcher of awe and wonder in this country, psychologist Dacher Keltner, says that "Awe is a basic need.” Yet most of us don’t know​ much about this powerful emotion, nor its connection to the Divine. Allen Klein's talk helped clarify all of that as he provided examples of the spiritual and the scientific and shared some awe-inspiring stories. He not only showed us how Awe can help us be healthier and happier but also help us increase our moments of Awe, Wonder, and the Divine in our lives. Allen Klein is the past President of the Board of Directors at Unity of San Francisco and has spoken at Unity centers throughout the United States, as well as being a retreat presenter at Unity Village. He is also an award-winning professional speaker, a TEDx presenter, and the best-selling author of 30-plus books including The Healing Power of Humor: You Can’t Ruin My Day and Embracing Life After Loss.
