Words From The Board - March/April 2014

Dear Unity Friends,
Why does it snow? What is our God within telling us? Years ago whenever it rained I thought it was God giving me permission to slow down, let go and
enjoy. Even though it rained I would still go to the beach, jump in the puddles and enjoy anyway. It gave me permission to relax. I could skip the chores, stop expecting so much from myself, read a book, appreciate. Well the snow is the winter version of the rain.

Hello everyone…I do love the term Unitics…so I lovingly call you such. I am a new board member. There are seven of us, and we take turns writing a few lines for the newsletter. I wondered, last year when the board went on retreat…I’m thinking why go on retreat when you’ve only just elected a new member(s). I no longer wonder, this is not a reward for being a board member, as “retreat” might imply. This was a working weekend, hands down, no fuss, work us til we drop weekend! We learned what it is to put our best thoughts forward for the growth and health of Unity, of each of us.

“Unity in Frederick ~ A Spiritual Community” was established 20 years ago! 20 years! It is a significant achievement. A time to celebrate our presence! Our accomplishments! Our community!

It was nice to spend some time on fun, in addition to “doing business.” We are very grateful to the committees for each of the celebrations!

A Unity Community

When I first walked into Unity, I knew I had found what I didn’t even know I was looking for: a community of friends who treat each other like family.
Actually, our vision statement says it best:
Unity in Frederick is a vibrant and inclusive spiritual community, centered in God, making a difference by living and sharing the empowering principles of love, peace and prosperity through the expression of the Christ within.
I like that. And, I believe it!

Opposite Words from the Board

Thu, 01/31/2013 - 2:29pm -- Toni

The usual title of this column is “Words from the Board,” but this time I’m calling it Opposite Words from the Board. I decided to write about certain words and the images brought to mind when saying or hearing those words; just a little something to lighten the mood. (See how that works?)
Think lightness, brightness, upward, sky high, heavenly. Do your eyes automatically look up? Now think darkness, gloom, downward, hell. Got a scowl on your face yet? Try these: sunshine, soaring, warmth. And these: stark, cold, dreary. I hope you notice a difference.

Do you see yourself in this quote?  Or do you believe that those in leadership positions are the ones who teach?  Hint: Leaders are people, just like you and me.
