Eleanor Fleming for a new class.  “CONSIDER THE LILIES… is a class on mystical prayer as it unfolded in the early days of Unity.  Based on E.V. Ingraham’s book, Prayer:  Its Practice and Its Answer, this class will look at the 4 stages of development in the prayer process—the prayer of asking, the prayer of believing, the prayer of silence, and the prayer of commanding and find biblical examples for each stage.  There will be ample time for discussion and practice.  Since this book is out of print, it is recommended that you download it from truthunity.net and read the first 3 chapters before class begins.

In 1991, Bram made his debut on the KC Jazz scene at the City Light Jazz Club with Kansas City’s own Richard Ross. An evening spent with Bram is a unique entertainment experience.  His technical expertise, dexterity, swing timing and knowledge is certainly unsurpassed. That along with his joyful exuberance and authenticity earned him an award by the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts. He also teaches Jazz piano and bass at Kansas City Kansas Community College and tunes and repairs pianos and other musical instruments.
