Unity Happy Hour

Program Overview

Are you searching for some levity and humor on your spiritual path? Then listen in to Unity Happy Hour with your hosts Reverend Ogun Holder and Ted Collins, dean of Unity Institute® and Seminary and vice president of education and retreats at Unity Village. Ogun and Ted are two regular dudes with jobs, families and average everyday lives whose paths crossed while at Unity Institute®. They often find themselves gathering socially with friends, talking and bantering about the spiritual aspects of everyday life. Somehow they got a microphone and a radio program and now they are bringing their unique perspectives, witty humor and cast of friends to the airwaves on Unity Online Radio. Each week this spiritually-seeking hosts will have spirited, humorous (and somewhat irreverent) discussions about current events, family, culture and really anything under the sun, set against a backdrop of spirituality and personal growth. Bring your authentic self and join the discussion each Monday at Noon Central.
