‘The Presence of Choice’ at Unity

Doug Benecke will speak on “The Presence of Choice” at the Unity of Whidbey service on Sunday.

As the holidays wind down, after all the cards are read and the presents have been opened, Unity will take time to re-focus our spirits on the presence of the sacred in our lives. As the new year unfolds, we remember our birthright; “to live in the presence of conscious choice”.

Join Benecke, a speaker and songwriter, and violinist Talia Toni Marcus, for a service focused on the power to choose life, to choose love, to choose compassion; moment-by-moment. Spirit provides the power to live in that present and thereby gives light to our loved ones, whether in the neighborhood, on the island or at large in the universe.

The service is at 10 a.m. at the new church, 5671 Crawford Road.
