During this Lenten Season, this time of preparation for the transformation of the Easter experience, I often find myself pondering…reflecting on the world around me…and wondering what impact my prayers really have. How can I better hold that consciousness of prayer so that my world knows itself more clearly and with great compassion and peace? Charles Fillmore gives us these words on prayer:

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.

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!

During the holiday season, often we lose sight of the abundance and peace in our world in the hustle and bustle of gifts and parties and family reunions. We can find ourselves in a funk or short-tempered as we work to “do it all – and do it perfectly.” I would like to challenge you to approach the season in a new way this year. I invite you to participate in a Prosperity Prayer Program - a program for realizing and demonstrating abundant prosperity in your life and affairs and for centering yourself in that ‘…peace that passes all understanding.’
Here is the plan of action:

Becoming the Hero of Your Own Journey — Jean Houston is a favorite of mine. She’s a philosopher and author, a wise woman and a seer of the future. Here are some excerpts from an interview she did with Oprah Winfrey on OWN in 2012. As we move forward into a new year—into the next 20 years of community in Frederick, let’s be the heroes of our journeys together!

Have you been wondering lately if the world is going to just explode? If everything is coming apart at the seams? Does it seem that your problems or challenges are getting bigger all the time? Check out this story from Hafiz, a 14th century poet. Perhaps it will provide a new perspective… or at least some food for thought!

Words on Healing from Charles Fillmore....

Wed, 05/01/2013 - 1:05pm -- Toni

Each Tuesday throughout April and May there is a morning class and an evening class here at Unity discussing the teachings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore on healing and wholeness. Our focus is on understanding their approach to the healing process and to finding our wholeness. Recently, I received a copy of one of Charles Fillmore’s unpublished lessons entitled “What Is It That Heals?” This talk was given on August 8, 1915.
As part of ‘honoring our tradition,’ I want to share some of this work with you here:

Thoughts for the Season: Honoring our Roots - 20th Anniversary

Wed, 02/20/2013 - 4:09pm -- Toni

This year marks 20 years for Unity in Frederick. We will be looking back to honor our traditions – our roots – and looking ahead to envision and manifest our future. We will also be celebrating who and what we are in this moment!!!! We hope you will join us! As part of looking back to honor our roots, I will, from time to time, share the original words of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in the newsletter, in a blog on the website and in lessons on Sunday. I would like to start this in this Thoughts of the Season.
