Tithing Corner: November-December 2015

Georgiana Tree West, the founder of Unity Center of Practical Christianity in New York City, wrote the book, Prosperity’s Ten Commandments, that has been used by many a Unity minister over the years to help folks understand our way of seeing and living prosperity principles.  I would like to share a paragraph from her discussion of the 4th Prosperity Commandment --Thou shalt let go and let God do it.  (I have taken the liberty of updating some of the language.  My words are in italics.)

In October, 2014, the board members found a Toad on the first night of the retreat and found the meaning and message of that Toad had special significance for us during the weekend.  This year, Board members gathered on the weekend of October 23-25 to plan for our coming year.  On her drive to the retreat, Rev Toni saw a beautiful blue heron in flight and took that as another sign for the Board and our meeting:

From Spiritual Economics by Eric Butterworth:

“We all live and do business in the world, so it is not easy to maintain a high level of faith.  In this time of mass communication, we are all exposed to a steady barrage of doom and gloom from forecasting economists, who use very convincing business statistics and “economic indicators.”  We would do well to listen to Paul: ‘Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mold, but let God remold your mind from within.’ ( Romans 12:2 Phillips)

In June, we had our third congregational dialogue of our “Daring Greatly ~ Unity on the Move” series.  We had good turnout for the series of discussions, great questions, and a lot of positive feedback. 

At our Annual Meeting, scheduled for September 27th, the Board will formally put forth a proposal to the members of Unity in Frederick to  authorize the Board to place our current home on the market and to lease our new home. This would be a big step for Unity in Frederick to allow us to grow our presence within our Unity community and to our larger Frederick community. 

Draft Proposal for Review

The Board of Trustees has drafted a proposal to be presented at the annual meeting on September 26, 2015, which asks the membership to authorize the Board to move forward in the sale of the building at 1 W. 9th Street and acquisition of new sacred space. Please review the proposal and if you have any questions, please talk to any member of the Board or Rev. Toni.
