Minister's Moment

You know every calling has a moment. A time when the universe stops and we are confronted with the opening of a door, the invitation of our soul, the moment of decision, the opportunity of a lifetime, the first real step toward our manifest possibilities in this life in this body. It is different for everyone and only the person for whom it is meant recognizes the moment. When we embrace the moment, we change the world and when we don’t embrace the moment often we never know what a difference we might have made. The beauty is that we don’t just have one moment, we always have the opportunity to begin the journey of fulfilling our dreams if we just pay attention to the moments that are presented to us in so many different ways.
I believe the universe has order, and that every opening that occurs for us has a cause that we have influenced. Gregg Levoy in  Callings  says, “By turning on our devoted attention, by becoming students of our lives, archivists of life’s details, we may distinguish the calls that are raining on us constantly, though they are obscured by our inattention. By being willing to receive, we, in a sense, will the calls to happen, to make themselves known. We draw them to us, but we never know quite what kind of marching orders we’re going to get. We may not be entirely happy with them, but, as with following your bliss, following them, not happiness, is the point.” 
 
We till the soil and plant the seeds through our willingness to do the work of preparation even when we don’t know exactly what we are preparing for at the time. It was no accident that Martin Luther King Jr. had the intellectual underpinnings and skills to answer his call when it came.
Join us this Sunday as we honor the life of Rev. Dr Martin Luther King and in doing so honor the moments in our own life where opportunity and possibilities meet.

If you can't make it to our services, we invite you to join us via live-stream at 11 AM each Sunday. 

Namaste,
Reverend Steve Towles

Answer the Call

One of Unity’s core principles is known as The Law of Mind Action. This law states that you create your experiences by what you think, feel and believe. Yet, to manifest what you imagine for yourself, you must also act on these divine ideas. It begins with that first small step toward bringing your vision to reality.

Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase .”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
