Tithing Corner January-February 2017

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.

Healing Ministry Reflections

What Is Healing?

The purpose of the Healing Ministry is to offer and promote healing. We do that mainly by offering the Healing Circle on the first Wednesdays of each month.  We are present at the Unity Booth at Frederick events throughout the year. Articles in the Unity Newsletter also help support healing on all levels. 

Tithing Corner Sept-Oct 2016

“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

Word From The Board Sept-Oct 2016

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”). 

Building Our Future and Our Prosperity: Rebuilding the Building Fund

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. 

Thoughts at the turning of the year - Dec 2015

It’s the last day of 2015.  I’m sitting here watching the top 100 baseball plays of the year and can’t believe that there are no plays by Bryce Harper and the Nats so far in the list.  A record breaking, MVP season for Bryce and not one highlight in the top 100.     Hmmmm.  Obviously, the MLB Network and I have very different criteria and perspectives regarding what’s “good baseball.”  And as I reflect more on that idea, it becomes clear to me that this is a truth in so many areas of my world.  My perspective on “things” is often diff

The Coming of Christmas

One of my favorite carols is I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day – the poem by Longfellow set to music. In his poem, Longfellow captures the despair and the hope of a world at war – an individual in pain because of personal loss. He wrote this poem in 1864 – the Civil War was raging – His son had been injured in battle – His wife had died in a fire. The world around him was not a peaceful place! And yet through all of this pain and despair, he found the Source of All Things – He heard the bells pealing peace – reconciliation – forgiveness.
