Unity reminds people to slow down

People live such busy and, at times, complicated lives. Sometimes they scarcely have time to breathe.

At 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, the Rev. Patty Becker discusses the value of slowing down to indulge in the simple pleasures of life. Unity of Whidbey is located at 5671 Crawford Road.

Join Becker at 1 p.m. for her continuing comparative religion exploration, this time on secular religions and atheism. All are welcome.
