Unity Founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore:
"God is the one perfect life flowing through us. God is the one pure substance out of which our organism is formed. God is the only reality of us; all else is but a shadow that is cast by some foolish belief or unwise combination of thoughts and the elements of being. When we let light flood us with its sunshine, all clouds vanish and we begin to see ourselves in n ew ways of doin g, whic h lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and grow th." Myrtle Fillmore ( 1895)

Inside Daily Word® Magazine.   Since its inception in 1924, Daily Word has provided people of all faiths with positive words of truth and inspiration. Each magazine includes two months of daily affirmative messages, feature articles and spiritual poetry Affirmations are positive statements of Truth.  By affirming Truth we are lifted out of false thinking into the consciousness of Spirit.  Each time we pray positively and faithfully, we are calling forth the divine activity that is always within us.

Join us for an evening of messages from those who have passed over with Debra Mallet.  We had a full house last time Debra was here and she was very well received.
 
"I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Debra. I am an Intuitive Clairvoyant Empathic Medium. I have the gift of understanding or knowing information without the aid of any direct evidence or reasoning. With the ability of seeing objects or actions beyond the range of natural vision, I have the ability to share information and pass on messages from the other side to those in the here and now.
My mission is to receive messages from loved ones (spirit) who have passed over and to give those messages to those who are in need of a kind word, a message or closure.
My primary goal is to help people. I want my clients to understand and accept the existence of the afterlife. Clients will come to appreciate their loved ones are by their side; helping, encouraging, and guiding them.
I wish to bring inner peace to clients I read by giving them messages from Spirit. I look forward to working with you to help improve the lives of many, bringing inner peace to all I read by connecting you with Spirit."

Christmas Candle Lighting Service
Dec. 23rd at 10:30 a.m. & Dec. 24th at 7:00 p.m. 

CHRISTMAS CANDLE LIGHTING SERVICE
Sunday, December 23 at 10:30 a.m.
Monday, December 24 at 7:00 p.m.
Our traditional Unity service features special music and  lighting of 12 candles representing our 12 Powers.  In Unity, "Christ" represents the spark of the Divine which is in each of us.  Therefore our metaphysical interpretation is that Christmas is the birth or awakening of the Christ Consciousness in each of us. In turn, this quickens the 12 Powers inherent in every human; Faith, Strength, Wisdom, Love, Power, Imagination, Understanding, Will, Order, Zeal, Elimination and Life.   All are welcome.

Burning Bowl & White Stone Ceremony December 30th at 10:30 a.m. 

BURNING BOWL AND WHITE STONE CEREMONY
Sunday, December 30 at 10:30 a.m.
In this ceremony, we consciously release anything from our consciousness and experience which does not serve our highest good. Following this, in a beautiful meditation we receive inspiration for moving forward in a new way.  Everyone is welcome.

World Peace Meditation & Breakfast
December 31st at 4:00 a.m. 

WORLD PEACE MEDITATION & BREAKFAST
Monday, December 31 at 4:00 a.m.
Every December 31 since 1986, people around the world have gathered at noon Greenwich Meridian Time to meditation on world peace.  Noon Greenwich Meridian Time is 4:00 a.m. Pacific Time!  We know that you probably don't really want to get up at 3:00 a.m. and come to Unity for a 4:00 a.m. meditation, but.............consider this.................what if YOU were the one who brings us to critical mass and world peace ensued.  Wouldn't that be worth getting up for?  
Stay for pancake breakfast, then go home for a nap so you're all ready for a party that night!
