Updates from Unity

Words from the Board - November-December 2013 by Kandi Austin

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.

Thoughts of the Season - November-December 2013

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.

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:

Tithe Corner - Words from Charles September/October 2013

In one of his earliest writings, Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, wrote this about prosperity:

Words From The Board September/October 2013

“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! With great JOY! The Board of Trustees was enthusiastic about scheduling a series of community celebrations! 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!
