Get a comedy hangover that lasts all week!
Award-winning humorist brings Comedy Concert to Unity Spiritual Center of Central Minnesota.

With a list of national awards to his credit, including multiple “Best Comedy Song” awards from the Posi Music Awards, Just Plain Folks Music Awards, and the Music City Song Festival, Tamblyn’s unique musical wit provides the perfect dose of ‘conscious comic relief’ from the workday blues, global anxiety, and personal challenges. His current mission, and one of his funniest comedy bits, is “Saving the World from Whiny Victim Love Songs.
His concerts feature songs like:
- Self-Employment Made Harder by Difficult Boss
- Analog Brain in a Digital World

As a professional songwriter in Nashville, Tamblyn appeared nationally on television, and had songs recorded by other artists from Canada to the Philippines. One of his own records, It’s Another Joyful Elvis Presley Christmas, was named “Christmas Single of the Year” in Cashbox Magazine.

John Denver Sunday
December 14, 2014
“All that is God, all that we need to know to have civilization work is within each of us. We need only be true to what we know and who we are.” John Denver
The spirit of John Denver continues to touch deeply the lives of millions worldwide. John believed in the oneness of all life and he reached out to all through his music. It has been said that in listening to John Denver sing, a vibration is felt which reaches deep into the soul and heart of those who are open to the message-the message of peace on Earth, of caring and
sharing with each other as a family of man.
John Denver is a candle that lights the way. His message to us is simple; you do what you can do. It can be as simple as picking up the litter you see as you walk along the street, or to see the beauty of a sunset and share it with your child. It doesn’t have to be something big, yet if each of us does something every day to reach out to those around us, we are making a difference.
On Sunday, December 14th, please come and join us as we celebrate the music of John Denver as sung by Dennis Warner, Allen Brisse, Cristina Seaborn, and the USC choir.
In addition to the music, Rev. Barbara Winter Martin will be discussing the spiritual meanings behind some of his most popular songs.

Weekly Ongoing Events

All Are Welcome.
This weeks service (11-19-14) has been cancelled.
We have expanded our services to include a “Wonderful Wednesdays Celebration Service,” at 7 pm. This service is similar to our Sunday Celebration Service. There were two main reasons for the expansion. One, our sanctuary is becoming fabulously full on Sundays. Two, we are providing an opportunity for those who find it difficult to attend on Sundays. Children’s Sunday School and Child Care will continue on Sundays only for the time being.
There will be no Wonderful Wednesday Services on 12/24 & 12/31.
Ginny Putxke, Director of our Healing Ministry, joins Rev. Barbara, on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, to facilitate special Wednesday Healing/Celebration.
