‘A Course in Miracles’ to be offered

“A Course in Miracles” will be offered from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays and 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays at Unity Church of Maui, according to an announcement.

The course’s goal is “happiness and peace.” Although the language of the course is that of traditional Christianity, it teaches a nonsectarian, nondenominational spirituality, the announcement said. The course is “a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion,” the announcement says. “It aims at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The miracle is defined as the shift in perception from fear to love.”

Donations will be accepted.

The church is at 483 High St. in Wailuku. For more information, call 874-3113.
