"Made in the Shade "
Sunday, July 21, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

Spiritually speaking, we hear a lot about the symbolism behind the word "Light." We say things like... "The Light of God surrounds us," and "You are the Light of the world!" While Light is a wonderful metaphor for truth and goodness, did you know that it is equally powerful to simply bask in the shade?Join Rev. Anne for part three of her Summer Soul Series, Hello Sunshine!, as we look at the perfect spiritual growing conditions of taking a breather in the cooler areas of our lives.

YFM Pocket Change Sunday 
July 21, 2019
immediately following the service 

Our youth continue the tradition of collecting pocket change after services once a month.  Pocket Change Sunday is now the third Sunday of the month. Your donation of pocket change is greatly appreciated!

"Take It On the Road "
Sunday, July 28, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

Baseball legend Yogi Berra said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it!" This is a powerful metaphor because in truth either pathway will take you along your journey. The question is: for what purpose? Join Rev. Anne for the conclusion of her four-part talk series, Hello Sunshine!, as we explore the roadmap for how to successfully navigate the uncertainties of life.

Tuesday Book Study on Brief Hiatus

The regular Tuesday book study group is taking a bit of a summer break. Study of "Halfway Up The Mountain" will resume on Tuesday, August 20, from 1:30-3pm in the Garden Lane Center (GLC).

Reverend Anne Tabor, M.Div., is available by appointment for spiritual counseling sessions at Unity of Arlington in a safe and supportive environment. As an ordained Unity minister, Rev. Anne, offers spiritual counseling to individuals seeking
a deeper understanding of themselves and their divine power within to solve life's challenges. Spiritual counseling can help if there is a need for inspiration, crisis support, or healing in any area of your life.  Prayer and meditation are an integral part of Unity's spiritual principles, and an essential practice in realizing the answers we seek. We believe in the transformative power of affirmative prayer. You are a unique expression of God. Spiritual counseling will remind you of that!
 
Spiritual counseling is offered on a love offering basis. While no specific fee is expected or suggested, we do invite each person to leave a love offering. For more details, please call the church office 817-467-5151.

UNITY'S FIVE BASIC PRINCIPLES

Principle #1:
There is only one Presence and one Power in the Universe and in my life,
God the Good.

Principle #2:
Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within.
Their essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good. 

Principle #3:
Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.

Principle #4:
Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.

Principle #5:
Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough.
A person must live the truth he or she knows.
 
CORE VALUES

Spirit-Led:
Centered in the awareness of God's presence, we turn within for divine guidance in  all we do.
 
Love:
Love is our True Nature. We express the harmonizing power of love to
see good everywhere and in everybody. Love binds together the whole
human family.
 
Diversity:
We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. In a spirit of Unity,
we embrace each person as an expression of God grounded in truth and love.
 
Connection:
We live, love, and laugh from our Oneness with God. We honor our inter-connectedness with each other, with all life, and the earth.
 
Abundance:
God is our Infinite Source of Good. We gratefully demonstrate prosperity in all areas of our lives. We wisely use our wealth of resources to serve our spiritual community and the world.
 
Service:
We cultivate enlightened leadership by practicing the teachings of Jesus the Christ through sacred service. It is a blessing to serve locally and globally.
 
Integrity:
We consciously choose to practice living our Core Values and Unity Principles rather than simply professing them. We choose to communicate from the heart with authenticity and deliver on our commitments with reliability.
