May 2017 Newsletter
Welcome to our Unity of Columbus Newsletter.  
One Source, One Love, One Power  

We begin this week with these words from our Unity co-founder, Charles Fillmore:  

"Man does not exercise the power of his spiritual nature, because he lacks understanding of its character and of his relation to the originating Mind in which he exists.  From Divine Mind man inherits power over the forces of his mind - in truth, power over all ideas. 
A quickening from on high must precede man's realization of his innate control of thought and feeling."

These words begin the chapter on the Fifth of the Twelve Powers, called Power.  We exercise Power when we control our thoughts, words, and deeds.  

As Fillmore explains above, we often do not express Power in the spiritual realm, because we do not understand our relation to Spirit, Divine Mind.  As we reflect upon our Power of Love, which we explored last month, I invite you to consider the following:  

There are as many cells in one human body - yours - as there are in the entire Milky Way galaxy.  Trillions of cells are quickened with Life, bound together by that mysterious gravitational force we call Love, each cell being a microcosm of the very Universe itself, all originating from a single cell through the biological processes of reproduction and fertilization... all containing a wealth of information, a cosmos in itself, a field of knowledge inside the nucleus of each and every cell, carried within the double-helix of one DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule...  

Consider further that, within these cells (each of which containing a Universe in itself) is Substance, Intelligence, and Life - what Charles Fillmore (in the Twelve Powers chapter, "Regenerating Love") refers to as "the trinity of the natural world," as it correlates to the Infinite Creative Process referred to in the Hebrew Scriptures as Jehovah, the great "I AM."  Pure, formless, boundless energy - pure power, guided and directed, in perfect Order, by Infinite Mind.  This is the Power in you, which is "the Father's good pleasure to give you."

Jesus said, "All [P]ower is given unto me in heaven and in earth."  (Matthew 28:18)  In Practical Metaphysics, we understand His affirmation as a declaration of His dominion over mind (heaven) and body (earth).  It is just as true for you, as a Child of God, as it was for Him.  What a powerful realization this is, when we truly take time to consider its implications!

Finally, I invite you to consider that the trillions of cells that come together to form your body (which is, again, composed of pure energy, bound by Divine Love, quickened by what we call the Holy Spirit) are replaced - regenerated - every seven years, according to biological science.  Self-described "quantum biologist," Dr. Deepak Chopra, has spoken and written about this subject many times.   Seven, I remind you, is a significant number, spiritually; it is the number that (metaphysically) represents the completion of the outworking of manifestation of Divine Ideas in the physical realm.  You are being regenerated as you are reading this!  You will be completely different physically one year from now than you are today, and you are now physically different than you were a year, or certainly seven years, ago.  The only constant is your intelligence, your mind, the Divine spark in you that is the indwelling Christ.

In his 1986 book, Quantum Healing, Chopra tells us that we have a brand-new stomach lining every four days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in six weeks, and so on...  This fascinating book gives humankind a new paradigm for how the body handles its own rejuvenation processes.  As prolific author, Dr. Lissa Rankin explains in her 2013 book, Mind Over Medicine, "It is the body's natural tendency to heal itself."  Truly remarkable is the Power that is within you...  For more insight, I recommend both of the above books highly.

What would happen if we were to engage in and truly practice the Law of Love and Non-Resistance, of which I spoke on Sunday?  Would we suffer from physical maladies if we learned to, in the words of Eric Butterworth, "stop resisting and start loving"?

Perhaps this article will give you a new sense of perspective, a new level of understanding, a fresh attitude toward science, spirituality, and your relationship to it all.  When we attune to a higher vibratory frequency through the creative power of thought, our entire experience of Life changes.  

Join us at Unity of Columbus, a diverse community in which we discover our connection - our Oneness - together through love and fellowship!

Remember: There is One Source, One Love, One Power - and we are One with the One!

Abundant Blessings,

Daryn L. Wells

"But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women."

Spotlight On: Light and Love Ministries

We have a new feature in our Newsletter!  Each month,  we will take a special look at an organization within our Unity Movement.

To begin our series, we shine our spotlight on Light and Love Ministries, founded by Rev. Lei Lanni Burt (pictured).

Rev. Lei Lanni Burt

From the Light and Love Ministries Website:

"Founded in 2005, Light and Love Ministries is an alternative ministry with Unity Worldwide Ministries.  Our mission is to assist leaders in creating effective and innovative pastoral care programs which will empower and motivate ministries in an even greater service to their congregations.

"Light and Love Ministries travels around the country delivering the Prayer Chaplain Trainer's Workshop, which gives participants everything they need to start a Prayer Chaplain Program in their ministry.  In addition, we provide ongoing support to Trainers and Prayer Chaplains through consulting, troubleshooting, and products designed to support the program."

Our Board of Trustees President and Prayer Chaplain, Daryn Wells, will be participating in a Prayer Chaplain Trainer's Workshop in Phoenix, Arizona, this week!  Look for more updates in this Newsletter!
