This Sunday, February 25th at 1pm we will be offering a tour of 5112 Pegasus Court Suite E, the leading contender for our new sacred space. We hope you will join us for our 11am Celebration Service and then the tour at 1pm.
Excerpt from Dynamics for Living by Charles Fillmore:
“In the Old Testament the tithe or tenth is mentioned as a reasonable and just return to the Lord by way of acknowledging Him as the source of supply. Tithing is the giving of a tenth of one’s supply to God and His work. Tithing is a tacit agreement that man is in partnership with God in the conduct of his finances. This leads to confidence and
assurance that whatever is done will bring increase of some kind.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”
― Tao Te Ching
“I begin to think that most of our weaknesses are due to the fact that our “belief” is too narrow, and that we don’t believe through to the end. To stop believing a second too soon, or not to believe enough, is sufficient to ruin the whole structure of what we are building.”
-- Teilhard de Chardin
Unity in Frederick is almost finished with our flood recovery projects. The last item is fixing a crack in the sewer line and we expect that to be fixed within the next several weeks. We are grateful for all the financial donations we have received during this time, as well as those donating their talents and time. Those still wishing to donate to Unity’s out-of-pocket costs can drop their donation off in the weekly offering basket or mail it directly to the office (please designate it as “Flood Fund”).
“Look well to the growing edge. All around us, worlds are dying and new worlds are being born.”

In 2013, Margaret Stortz, a retired UCRS minister wrote the following about the impact of change and new birth:
From Theresa Wyatt:
I am grateful that I spent last week at the Big Sky Retreat. Once again I got to sing with Michael Gott and Karen Drucker. I also got to listen to and feel the energy and love of Rev. Mary Morrisey and Rev. Sheila McKeithen and many other wonderful speakers. Then I came back home to the real world. While I can still feel the energy high I wanted to share it with you.
I was working in the kitchen today, preparing my meals for the next few days and it occurred to me that what I was doing was rather unusual in this day and age. I had mentioned it in one of my previous blog posts and wanted to expand on it. I’m not talking about the actual act of preparing the meals instead of going out to eat or even the whole foods style of cooking. I’m talking about the reason behind why I had chosen and was preparing these particular foods.
I thought I’d put a list of the resources together that played a role in my recovery in hopes that they might help someone else. Some were calming and comforting, some were brain fodder that gave me something to think about when I couldn’t be reading and thus kept me from going to dark places, and some were purely out of interest.
