Fertile Ground

HOLIDAYS ARE FERTILE GROUND

 

I really get excited around holidays because they are fertile ground and a great time to spread seeds of Truth and watch them unfold.  In our Unity way of life, we know that everyday we can experience Thanksgiving, we can always feel the joy of Christmas and the pleasure of having moved through year of learning and growing.  Why is that? Because we not only learn and explore Truth, but we incorporate it into our ...

Convention

I have just returned from the annual Unity People’s Convention in Olathe, Kansas. It was a rewarding and inspiring week! I’d like to share some of the highlights and let you know some of what is happening in Unity.
Donna Johnson, CEO of Unity Worldwide Ministries (UWM) said this was the ‘Just Imagine’ convention. Things were different this year, starting with a joint licensing and ordination ceremony at Unity Village for all the credentialing paths’ graduates. This was the first ...

Farewell

Having announced my intention to retire effective November 1 this year, I am so aware of ‘the last time’ for so many things. This will be my last newsletter submission, for example. It’s rather strange, and it makes me aware of many emotions and memories. It is bittersweet! We say in our prayer chaplain training that all change has both happy/exciting aspects and sad/loss aspects. In this time of coming transition, I imagine we’ll all be experiencing both!
The last ...

Dandelions

Daffodils and Dandelions
Don’t you just love spring? I certainly do! It seems that the landscape changes almost overnight, going from all brown to green. Flowers are blooming, trees have blossomed and formed new leaves, and there is a fresh new energy. I sit at my computer right in front of a window that looks out onto my front yard, and I get to see the new life every day. But not all of the new life is welcome.
Granted, ...

Spring

We’re getting ready to let go of cold weather clothing and frosty mornings. Spring is upon us. With it comes Daylight Savings Time, chilly days, flowers and rain. It is a time of new growth, renewal and potentially, new beginnings, both in the outer and within ourselves.
Every Spring I look at my yard to see what will beautify my surroundings. I look to see where work needs to be done. There are nearly always flower beds that need to ...

Letting Our Lights Shine

A new year ahead of us – how exciting! As each year rolls around, we have an opportunity to notice what the previous year brought to us, and we can turn our sights toward making the new year one of love, joy and fulfillment. While we have our unique goals and intentions, we all have something in common. We are all equipped with power to bring those intentions into reality!
Jesus tells us in scripture that one who believes will ...

That Time Again!

We’ve had some strange weather this year, and even as I write this, the leaves are still on the trees, just beginning to turn colors. Our fall has been warm, so it seems impossible that the holiday season is upon us! How do we handle the additional tasks that come with the holidays? Are we joyous and grateful, or do we feel stressed just thinking about all that needs to be done?
Of course, the vision of sitting at the ...

Prayer and Prosperity

Prayer and Prosperity
Many years ago, a popular song contained the lyrics, ‘love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage.’ The old-fashioned song pairs the two as the ideal…. Love leading to marriage. In a similar way, prayer and prosperity are the ideal pairing. Prayer leads to prosperity!
Is it possible to pray regularly without being prosperous? Yes, unfortunately. During the month of September, we are going to explore prayer; what makes for effective prayer, ...

Deep in the Heart of Texas

Deep in the Heart of Texas
I’ve just returned from the Unity People’s Convention in San Antonio, Texas, where I learned and laughed and reconnected and experienced great Unity teachings! I thought I’d share some of my experience with you.
The convention was in San Antonio this year, and the hotel was on the famous Riverwalk. While most of the restaurants were several blocks away, the walkway is beautiful and it was great to have such a variety of choices ...

Our Comfort Zone

This seems to be a very busy time of year for many of us. There are weddings, graduations, family get-togethers, plus all the normal activities. With all this busy-ness, any unexpected or unplanned event can seem to throw us into a tail spin, and it doesn’t feel very peaceful!
I recently had to replace my computer. One day, after a routine update, it wouldn’t come up anymore. A visit to Best Buy showed that the hard drive had failed. I ...
