ULV Weekly Update
What You Appreciate, Appreciates
Rev Sandra Butler
2/28/21

How do our beliefs about scarcity and sufficiency impact our lives?
And ... take a powerful step in the transformation from resignation to possibility.
Did You Take Our Survey?
We sent out an online survey last week to gauge interest in what days Rev Sandy will hold classes via Zoom.

We are interested in hearing your feedback on which days are best to hold the classes.

Either ...

Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30

OR

Saturday mornings 10am-12 noon.

Classes run for 5 consecutive weeks.

Details on the class, dates and suggested love offering will be forthcoming shortly. The first class will focus on prosperity in "The Consciousness of Abundance".

If you have not completed the survey, please click on the link below to do so.

We value your input!

Read the Daily Word for our Sunday Service from the comfort and safety of your own home


We are inviting people to video-record themselves reading the Daily Word for playback at Sunday service. Karen will be maintaining a schedule in the office. Please contact her at unitylv@rcn.com if you would like to be part of the service by reading the Daily Word. You can click on the link below to read the schedule to date.

Here's how it works: You will receive the text for the Daily Word for the Sunday you choose, you record it on your phone and send the video via email. Your video will be incorporated into the Sunday Service!

We are trying very hard to keep everyone connected until we can resume some kind of normalcy for our Sunday services.
Once you select your date, and have the Daily Word for that day, you can record yourself and send it in to the office. You do not need to wait. The recording will be stored to be played on your day of choice.

We don't have anyone scheduled. Please consider volunteering to record yourself reading the Daily Word!

AV Team
Are you interested in helping with our live-stream services? If so, the AV team is looking for volunteers!

We are in the process of rebuilding our AV team. Our team members should be comfortable with a computer and able to respond to internet "glitches" should they arise.

AV team members will be trained to operate our new camera equipment, operate the sound board and bringing in speakers via the Zoom platform into our FB live service.

Ultimately, we would like to have 3 volunteers for each Sunday. One to operate the camera, one to operate the slides and interact with the Zoom speaker and one member to focus on audio.

We have been so blessed and are so grateful to Bill Gastinger for bringing us into the 21st century for livestreaming. When Bill stepped up to volunteer, we were still recording our services on a cell phone! Bill has fine-tuned our practices and procedures to bring a quality live-stream event each Sunday, and we are thrilled that Bill will remain on our AV team, and is willing to train our new volunteers!

We will continue to live-stream even when ULV opens up to the public without restrictions. So, we need a pool of volunteers to help with this. The AV team is now even more critical to ULV than in the past.

Please consider joining the team. Please email Karen in the office, or call 610-965-3036, option 1.

Community Events
Golden Chalice Fellowship Event : Spiritual Insights into the Global Pandemic
Through the ages, humanity has had to face scourges and plagues. While the miracles of modern medicine has helped to greatly alleviate the effects of pandemics, viruses are part of the ecosystem of the earth. With civilization becoming more integrated, it becomes essential to understand how to manage future threats and to better appreciate the role viruses play in our life experiences.

Join us on March 12 as we share metaphysical insights from the divine as to how there is a spiritual purpose for viruses.
The Secret Destiny of America Workshop
It is a miracle that a country still young could grow to become such a strong influence and inspiration to civilization. This is because the United States is not just a country; it represents a principle for the world. Where is America today in fulfilling its sacred purpose and what does the future hold for our country?

Join us on March 20 and discover:
  • The spiritual purpose any country plays in the divine plan.
