"ABOVE & BEYOND: Secrets of the Receptive Mode" by Rev. Bronte
Music by Jennifer Ferren
What if everything you want (indeed, ever wanted) was just on the other side of a nearby, invisible wall? What if all the scrambling, climbing, attempts to smash through it, even ladders could not get you over that wall and into your "promised land"? Unity principles teach us that an attitude of struggle, words of limitation, and thoughts of lack can actually keep us from our good. So what is ours to do? This Sunday Rev. Bronte will offer some techniques including "Secrets of the Receptive Mode" to go "Above and Beyond" our "now" experience into something even better!  
    Musician-singer-songwriter Jennifer Ferren will grace us with her talent and music.  We hope you will join us in body or in spirit as we celebrate this Sunday at Unity Athens!

 "Prayer for Protection"  by James Dillet Freeman
      The light of God surrounds us;  The love of God enfolds us;
      The power of God protects us; T he presence of God watches over us; 
            Wherever we are, God is!
 
"There is no numbering of the avenues through which supply can come to us. Our resource is as far-reaching as the Universe. We expect our supply through all avenues of life.  From all points of the Universe, unlimited supply is crowding upon us NOW!" ~ Catherine Ponder
