From the Minister

Dear Friends,
 
Next Tuesday, May 25th, will mark the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder. There will be remembrance services, marches, and special commemorations around the world to honor his tragic death.
 
But none of this will bring Mr. Floyd back.
 
Some folks (understandably) called what happened to Mr. Floyd a “modern-day lynching.” After all, it happened in broad daylight on the streets of Minneapolis and no one stopped it.
 
Moreover, if it hadn’t been for the courageous act of Darnella Frazier, the young teen who captured the horrific act on her cell phone video camera, the guilty verdict against the officer who killed him may not have even been possible.
 
And so, as this milestone approaches, I invite you ask yourself: how has Mr. Floyd’s murder changed me? In other words, how can you be a catalyst for change to help heal the systematic injustices that appallingly take so many Black lives?
 
My prayer is that he did not die in vain.
 
Here’s your call to action. There’s a growing list of things White people can do to increase racial literacy. It’s called, “103 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice” by Corinne Shutack (https://bit.ly/3vb33ce). Become familiar with this list and start doing something!
 
And remember, baby steps are okay. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

There is much for which to be hopeful. We are the ones.
 
In Love and Unity,
Rev. Anne Tabor

Sub-teams have been established to assess costs, safety, technology needs, and what equipment, procedures, and training will be needed. Communication will be ongoing and transparent as the team progresses in its efforts to send comprehensive and practical recommendations to the Board of Trustees for action. Look for news updates in future newsletters.

Anne, offers spiritual counseling to individuals seeking a deeper under-standing 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!

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.
