Living in Gratitude

“Recent research tells each one of us that there is a whole chemical shift that happens in our bodies when we decide — and then determine — to live from gratitude. It makes our immune system much more potent. It makes us able to keep ourselves in a healthy state, no matter what we’re around; it is almost as if a bubble of protection is around us. It is not something we can manufacture by pretending, but it is something we can create by entering into a field of gratitude.

Words on Healing from Charles Fillmore....

Each Tuesday throughout April and May there is a morning class and an evening class here at Unity discussing the teachings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore on healing and wholeness. Our focus is on understanding their approach to the healing process and to finding our wholeness. Recently, I received a copy of one of Charles Fillmore’s unpublished lessons entitled “What Is It That Heals?” This talk was given on August 8, 1915.
As part of ‘honoring our tradition,’ I want to share some of this work with you here:

Thoughts for the Season: Honoring our Roots - 20th Anniversary

This year marks 20 years for Unity in Frederick. We will be looking back to honor our traditions – our roots – and looking ahead to envision and manifest our future. We will also be celebrating who and what we are in this moment!!!! We hope you will join us! As part of looking back to honor our roots, I will, from time to time, share the original words of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in the newsletter, in a blog on the website and in lessons on Sunday. I would like to start this in this Thoughts of the Season.

Tithing: Letting go and Letting God do it

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.

Thoughts of the Season - January-February 2013

“Look well to the growing edge. All around us, worlds are dying and new worlds are being born.”
                                                                                                                                     Howard Thurman 

We begin a new year—an auspicious new year at that! According to many, this is the first year of a new world consciousness! As with any new birth, the “being” that is born has just begun an amazing journey of growth, discovery and change.

It's a New Year A-Coming!

We begin a new year—an auspicious new year at that! According to many, this is the first year of a new world consciousness! As with any new birth, the “being” that is born has just begun an amazing journey of growth, discovery and change. The passage below was written by Margaret Stortz, a retired UCRS minister, and she describes the impact of change and new birth very well.

Thoughts on Newtown

This is from David Ault, Spiritual Living Center, Atlanta, GA.
"There is no 'their children' - it is our children.
"There is no 'their mental illness' - it is our mental illness.
"This is not isolated - this is another effect from a long standing cause.

Tithe Corner: Words from Charles Fillmore in his book Prosperity - November 2012

"Another blessing that follows the practice of tithing is the continual "letting go" of what one receives, which keeps one's mind open tithe good and free from covetousness. Making on occasional large gift and then permitting a lapse of time before another is made will not give this lasting benefit, for one's mind channel may in the meantime become clogged with material thoughts of fear, lack or selfishness. When a person tithes he is giving continuously, so that no spirit of grasping, no fear, and no thought of limitations gets a hold on him.
