Did You Know We Have a Lending Library?

Did you know that Unity has books, CDs, and tapes in its lending library located in the room to the right of the lobby?  

There are hundreds of publications covering a wide range of spiritual, self-help, and inspirational subjects just waiting for you to take home and enjoy. 

Lending is easy; no check-out required.  Just take the item home and return when finished.  There is no specific lending time-period, but if you haven't read/listened to it after three months perhaps you should return the item to make it available for someone else.  

Words on Faith: Stump the Minister

Published in Frederick News Post on October 6, 2018

We have a tradition at Unity in Frederick - the 5th Sundays are “Stump the Minister” Sundays.  During the lesson time of the Celebration Service, individuals in the congregation can ask me questions – things that are on their mind or in their heart – and I will do my best to answer them.  The range of questions is wide, from what is the meaning of life to what qualifies me to be the minister.  Interestingly, I found that last question the most difficult one to answer so far.

Updates from our Youth Ed Director

The fun continues for the Unity in Frederick Youth! The younger kids have started a new curriculum on Sunday mornings about Unity basics and principals. The middle school and high school group had their first Sunday morning meeting this past week. They will meet every 1st Saturday of the month. Please see below for exciting and updated events!

Youth Ed Updates

We have a very exciting year ahead of us for the youth at Unity! I am very happy to have a team of wonderful people working with me to plan and run so many activities. Please see below for important dates and mark your calendars!

* For youth ages 6th grade and up there will be a Youth Group Gathering every 3rd Friday. This will kick off with a trip to Escape This Live, an escape room adventure! Please watch for more specific times. Each month they will meet to enjoy a social activity of some kind. October will be a bonfire/pumpkin patch!

Some Words from Mark Nepo

This poem by Mark Nepo was my "Reflection for the Day."  It seemed appropriate to share it --

The Thing About Fear

We try to avoid it, distract ourselves,

even put others in the way. Because it

makes what is necessary seem monumental.

It makes what is needed seem uncrossable.

Yet when we stumble over the line, or are

loved over the line, or, in our exhaustion,

fall beyond our pain, what we feared
