Tithing Corner - November/December 2014

Tue, 12/02/2014 - 5:21pm -- Toni

n his book, Spiritual Economics, Eric Butterworth gives his views on the subject of tithing:

“Certainly, the practice of tithing is an excellent training process. One may read dozens of testimonials of persons who have gotten themselves on the road to a giving consciousness and who have demonstrated success and prosperity through the disciplined practice of tithing.

The Unity Board members gathered on the weekend of October 17, 18 & 19 to plan for our coming year.  Upon our arrival at the retreat…a toad was waiting on the railing to welcome us.

The appearance of a Toad heralds a successful time of drawing upon and using our inner resources.

Toads are associated with money and luck- especially changing your luck from bad to good.

People with a Toad totem can see things and people more clearly.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

by Harriet Kofalk

Harriet Kofalk was a naturalist, author, activist, mother, grandmother, and dear friend to many people worldwide.  She lived in South Eugene, Washington – her place was known to many as Peace Place. 
As we enter this season of thanksgiving and love, I would encourage us all to find those moments of peace in the amazing world around us and give thanks to Source.  I thank Harriet Kofalk for her life and her beautiful words.

In every spiritual path I’ve studied, one of the main pillars is the practice of silence – whether it’s called prayer or meditation or contemplation or relaxation or mindfulness.  It is the activity of being still, of heightened awareness, of feeling the Presence.  Beginning Sunday, September 7th at 6pm, we will once again be offering a Time for Meditation at Unity – each Sunday, we will share 45 minutes of inspirational words and silence.

The Board has been envisioning solutions to our space concerns. We love our space, it has a special energy, we can all feel it!  Spiritual healing and growth occurs in it and throughout our community daily. And we want to be able to grow to be more inclusive and to have an inviting space for families and children.  Water problems in our basement this month reinforced our focus on finding a permanent solution. And our campaign to raise money to repair our roof above us is of equal importance.  We need to think out of the box to move beyond our current space constraints.

At Easter this year, Bob Farrell joined his family at service in Unity in Frederick and shared with me how Unity principles had supported him through a very rough period in his life.  I asked if he would write about his experience and allow me to share with the community.  Here is his story.  Thank you Bob!

1. Serve to discover abundance: the radical shift from me to we When you serve, you discover that often the most important things you have to offer are not things at all. You start to uncover the full range of resources at your disposal -- your time, presence, attention -- and recognize that the ability to give stems from a state of mind and heart, a place much deeper than the material. Inspired by the possibilities this opens up in every moment, you begin to discover humble opportunities to serve -- everywhere. This process begins a shift from a me-orientation to a we-orientation.
