Film night of 'power' at Unity
In today's fast paced, multi-media world there are so many ways to be entertained. From Netflix to YouTube to Hulu, the eyes have it. So what to watch next? What if your next movie choice was both entertaining to your psyche, and enriching to your heart and soul? A double-your-fun kind of event!
If you've heard of James Tyman, also known as the Peace Troubadour, you know he is a unique individual with a variety of successes. He is the author of 10 books, including "The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking," and a world renowned folk musician. He has been invited by world peace organizations to perform peace concerts in war-torn countries such as Serbia, Bosnia and Iraq. He is also a film producer with movie credits such as "Indigo" and the documentary "The Moses Code."
Tyman is directing movies again, and his latest effort is "A Sound Called Unity: The Twelve Powers." Over 100 years ago, Charles Fillmore, one of Unity's founders, wrote "The Twelve Powers of Man," which each of us has within. These great powers, starting with faith, are woven within the very fabric of who we are, and who we are meant to be. Recall that faith is the evidence of things not seen. We don't know what our futures will exactly look like, but we imagine (the second power of man) it will be good.
Rev. Joanne Rowden, minister Of Unity Spiritual Center of Westlake, comments that, "As we practice, demonstrate and express these twelve powers, we bring our own unique, inner Christ light into the forefront." These powers can express through us daily. This documentary film breathes new life and new insights into Fillmore's spiritual classic, with over 30 Unity ministers sharing their own insights on these powers within. Each well-known minister expresses themselves differently, but the thread of unity, and Unity principles, can be followed throughout the film.
Why would anyone travel around the world to ISIS occupied lands to pray? Come watch the film and find out. Unity Spiritual Center of Westlake, 23855 Detroit Road, is honored to be one of the few centers airing this new film on Friday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 p.m. Cost is $10. Bring a friend, and find out why love is a power with companions such as strength and wisdom, and how these are your very own to express any moment you so choose.
