Peace by Piece December 5, 2021

Ah, the holidays!  This wonderful time of year brings so many fond memories and a multitude of things to do!  We can get so caught up in recreating our best memories that we forget to enjoy our current activities.  The outer activities aren’t what we celebrate.  We celebrate the Christ being born anew in each of us.  There is so much more to life and Christmas when we live from our spiritual center outward.  Living from the inside out, all our doing becomes an effortless joy.  Everything that happens, good or bad, is an opportunity to find the peace within and bring it out.  Piece by piece, we stitch a seamless garment of tranquility that blankets our world.

Remembering Christmas November 28, 2021

This week we begin the annual preparations for celebrating the birth of Jesus that we call Christmas. For us in Unity, Christmas holds a personal, spiritual meaning that includes and transcends cultural expressions. It is a time of hope fulfilled through faith in the miracles of giving that occur this time of year. Let’s reflect on this question: What does Christmas mean to you? We can deepen our understanding of Christmas and experience a new birth of Christ consciousness by finding a transcendent meaning of giving together!

The Magic of Harmony- Unity United November 21, 2021

Our world seems to be one of opposites. Yet, if we look more closely, we might find that there is a sense of oneness that exists beyond the seeming opposites.  In fact, out of the Oneness that is the Universe, everything that exists is differentiated.  The closer we look, the more we see the essential need for separation from the One.  If this strikes us as somehow inharmonious, perhaps it’s because we’re still too close to it.  It is only from a new, higher perspective that we can grasp or even glimpse the underlying unity of all things.

Falling Back November 14, 2021

Last weekend, we reset our clocks, or they reset themselves.  Either way, we had an “extra” hour on Sunday.  What did we do with that hour?  Did we use it to get caught up on sleep, work, or fun?  Did we spend it with family, close friends, or alone?  Did we spend it in prayer and meditation?  However we spent that time, this is an excellent time of year to reflect on the idea of “falling back” or “retreating.”  Amid our everyday lives, we can get so habitual that we overlook what is asking to be noticed and nourished within ourselves.  This Sunday, we will look at the many ways our Master Teacher, Jesus, took time off and see how we, too, can build these periods of rest and renewal into our often over-filled lives.

THANKSLIVING November 7, 2021

Thankfulness is more than words. According to this Thanksgiving sermon, it is a positive mental attitude, focused on God and grateful for all the benefits that are ours as believers. It is a lifestyle rooted in the disposition of our hearts! Patty says ‘Thanksgiving is good but thanks-living is better.’

All Is Welcome Here October 10,2021

“To know the aliveness that you long for, every part of your needs to be woven back into your heart. The deep fears, anger, self-judgments, and despairs that are hidden inside you have been with you since you were little, and just like you, they want to be seen, acknowledge, understood, and loved so they can let go.”

Making Peace with Discomfort October 3, 2021

Would your life be better if you were less reactive to people in your life or to  events happening around you?  What if no one and nothing got under your skin?  Or if they did, the discomfort didn’t last long?  Mary O’Malley offers us a practice she calls the “you-turn.”  Through this practice, we’re invited to take a look inside ourselves to determine the real cause of our discomfort, which is most often an ingrained way of thinking about whatever is showing up.  When we make friends with discomfort, we realize it is a doorway into what Jesus called the “kingdom of heaven” right here on earth.  Are you curious?  Join us on Sunday, October 3, 2021, at 10:30 AM in the sanctuary or LIVE of Facebook.

The Healing Power of Curiosity September 26, 2021

This week, we learn how deep healing can occur when we develop the art of curiosity.  Curiosity takes us out of the struggles and addictions of the thoughts, feelings, and sensations we usually try to control or fix.  It guides us to be the Observer Within.  The Observer Within notices that our sense of self is trapped in the emotions of the many spells or beliefs we have about Life.   When we get outside the mind-made self, we discover that we are not separate from Life itself.  In fact, we find out that we are Life Itself having a human experience.  Our experience of Life can be JOYFUL as we learn how to be with what is in an open, receptive way.  Being curious is the first step!

Join Rev. Jean on September 26, 2021, at 10:30 AM for the fourth talk in her series based on Mary O’Malley’s book, What’s in the Way IS the Way.

Fear- It’s Nothing to be Afraid Of- September 12, 2021

We have all been conditioned to fear many aspects of life.  Fear disconnects us from the meadow – that sense of well-being that is within us.  In this week’s lesson, we learn how to treat fear like any other emotion.  It just wants to be seen, recognized, welcomed, and touched by our own heart energy.  This idea resonates with the Course in Miracles:  Everything is love or a cry for love.   As we learn how to bring attentive awareness to our fears, they dissipate.  We can then return to the meadow, our center of well-being, where we experience the truth of our lives – All is well.  Experience the transformative power of noticing this Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 10:30 AM.
