"Seeds of Possibility"
Sunday, October 13, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

A popular Chinese proverb says,  "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." And so, regardless of the season, there is no better time than the present for planting seeds of possibility in the inner soil of our lives. But there are a few important things to keep in mind about where you actually drop these seeds. Join Rev. Anne as we explore how your personal laws of life create the good soil from which your spiritual seeds will put down roots so they  can  bear abundant fruit! In other words, do you want to grow flowers... or do you want to grow weeds?
"How 'Bout We Take A Breather?"
Sunday, October 20, 2019
11am, Kit Holmes, Guest Speaker and Musical Artist

In our fast-paced, over-stimulated and over-worked world, it's more vital than ever that we take a little time to slow down and catch our breath. Kit Holmes shares personal insights on the importance of practicing how to "Be still...and know."

Unity of Arlington is a loving, thriving spiritual community that welcomes all people and honors all paths to enlightenment. We would love to have you join as an official member! Membership is not required for attending services or serving at Unity of Arlington. However, we encourage it as a way for an individual to commit to his or her own spiritual growth, and make meaningful connections with like-minded people in faith.
 
Active members attend services regularly, participate in events, invest their time and talents in our church, attend classes, and contribute their financial gifts to Unity of Arlington. Members also participate in voting on important church matters. Classes required for membership are offered in two parts and will cover:  Unity Basics, Unity Prayer, and Membership Basics. There will also be a time for questions and discussion. To become a member, attendance is required at both classes.

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.
