"The Catfish Nipping at My Tail" by Shad Groverland. Sometimes I feel like life gets a kick out of "throwing us a curve ball," or hitting us with the unexpected. Like it sits back and smiles at a well-orchestrated kerfuffle, twisting us into a perfect Boy Scout style knot that only it could have pulled off with such brilliant execution and precision.
In seeking the treasures of the world, the bible cautions, you may lose your soul. However, if you seek and gain soul awareness the treasures of the world will follow. This is what is meant by the Master's admonition in Matthew 6:33, "But seek first God's Kingdom and His/Her righteousness, and all your physical desires will come to you as well."
"Forty Years With Jack and Norma." How fitting it is that we, Norma and I, are celebrating our forty year anniversary as Leaders of Unity of Boulder. Moses led the Israelites through the wilderness (of confusion) for forty years to the "Promised Land" (of Enlightened Awareness).
The Call of the Mystic: Part 3 of the Talk Series. I have been a Prosperity Teacher for over 16-years, teaching the tools of the Law of Attraction, what we hold in thought, what we affirm to be, the vibration we hold around any certain circumstance or feeling we will attract back to us. Well this goes against the Mystic’s calling or does it? In this Sermon, I pick apart the truth between these two powerful paths and I will demonstrate how they are more alike than not alike.
Week two of the talk series "The Call of the Mystic" by Shad Groverland. Is your God big enough? Using the human mind to try and comprehend the vastness of God, is likely an impossible task. Even so, we continue attempt to do just that,
What is a Mystic? People say that a mystic is someone who dreams and who lives in the clouds; my answer to this is that the real mystic stands on earth, but his head is in heaven. It is not true that the wise man is not intellectual, or that the wise man is not clever. A clever man is not necessarily wise, but the one who has the higher knowledge has no difficulty in gaining knowledge of worldly things. It is the man who has knowledge of worldly things only who has great difficulty in absorbing the higher knowledge.
"Unity as a Spiritual Movement,” with Ministers Jack, Syntysche & Shad Groverland. For thousands of years religion has tried to sell itself as the solution to our individual and global problems, with dogmatic ideas about how to live and worship.
When I returned from my travels this Summer, having had a much needed rest where I turned my phone off and unplugged from my busy career, from those I counsel as well as my friends - I turned towards my family, my children, my husband, my brothers, my parents seeking solace and peace from the ones I feel most seen and loved.
"Meditation and Pesky Flies" by Shad Groverland
Are You Ready to Live Your Hero's Journey? There is nothing that helps us grow like getting into an unfamiliar place, and being in a state of allowance for inspiration and vision of a brighter and better life. Where spiritual experiences find you, aha moments of the heart happen just when you are not expecting it. You might find you are more sensitive to everything around you, the smells, the sights and the sounds.
"My Ego is My Frenemy - Part 2," by Shad Groverland. This week, we expand on that and look at how both of these sides of the ego affect your life and what you can do to manage the shifting polarities that result. This is an applicable talk that leaves you with a tool for living a more balanced and harmonious life.
My Ego is My Frenemy - Part 1. Part 1 of a 2 part sermon series by Shad Groverland titled: "My Ego Is My Frenemy." Have you ever been among "spiritual" seekers who seem more ego-driven than spirit led? Is it possible some spiritual practices actually inflate the ego instead of diminish it? This Sunday we will start a two part series investigating this issue and whether it is a natural part of spiritual growth or something else. We will also examine how having a clearer understanding of the ego can assist us on our own spiritual journey.

Well if you have, you know it can create an awkward situation, as often we don't know how to respond.
Affirming God's Presence in Every Aspect of Life.
Listen to or watch the sermon "Your Life is a Work of Art," by Jack Groverland. A painter, a musician, a playwright or a novelist may all know the rudiments of their craft, creating a painting on canvas, or making musical notes through an instrument, or putting different characters together within a plot or story – but the results will never be True Art unless the artist-musician-writer so totally surrenders to the moment-to-moment creation of the work that he/she merges with the work, becomes one with the work – is himself/herself but an instrument through which the Divine Self expresses the painting, music, or novel or play.
The Importance of Looking Up. In a World where we are becoming more and more isolated, spending more time in secret thoughts, there is not as much interaction with others as many of us are caught in the mouse wheel staring down at our phones. We are addicted to seeing our friends and family member’s lives passing by as we hit our like or our dislike about the photo they uploaded and sometimes we really stretch ourselves and even write a comment about it. The world in pictures!
Break Your Mind Made Chains by Jack Groverland. What would you give to heal your mind, your body, your relationships and your life? When Jesus asked the paralyzed man at the pool of Bethzatha “Do you want to be healed?”, the man claimed he had no way of getting down to the pool when the “healing powers” were churning the water. Jesus disregarded the excuse the man gave, as He disregards everyone’s excuses for not being healed, saying “Take up your pallet and walk.”
The Tao of Mother. Not matter whether the mother figure in your life was a biological mother, adopted mother, step mother, grandmother, aunt, teacher or even a mothering male figure... mothers always have deep wisdom to share.
