Updates from Unity

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.

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.)

Words from the Board: November-December 2015

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:

Here is one of the descriptions of Heron as a spiritual totem:
