From the Minister

Dear Friends,
 
“Who am I?”
 
It has been said that this is one of the most defining questions we can ask ourselves. However, an even better question might be: how do I want to experience my life? 
 
If you’re ever looking for a deeper understanding of your innate value… here are two words to remember: “sacred worth.” 
 
I’m asking you to think of this simple phrase because in Unity we teach that all people are created with sacred worth. 
 
You can’t buy it. You can’t sell it. You can’t even bargain with God about it. Made in the image and likeness of the Loving Creator your very essence is sacred worth. 
 
To borrow a line from Lady Gaga, “Baby you were born this way.”
 
Now imagine going through your life—especially when things get a little rocky—with absolute confidence that you are a unique and unrepeatable expression of sacred worth. Think how different your life would be.
 
And so, as June begins to unfold, let us bring to mind that it’s not only a time to kick off summer but it’s also the celebration of Pride Month—a time when millions of people come together to support the LGBTQ+ community.
 
So many of our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters have braved the trauma of being judged and spiritually abused. This behavior must stop. It’s not loving. It’s not kind. And it certainly isn’t what our Master Teacher, Jesus, taught.
 
Here are some easy ways you can show your support:
 
·      Be an ally to your LGBTQ+ colleagues, friends and family.
·      Support LGBTQ+ organizations and businesses.
·      Read a book or watch a movie. In other words, learn something new! And don’t be lazy. If you’re looking for more ideas GOOGLE it.

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

You've Asked About Re-Opening

A Unity of Arlington task team is working on reopening! Headed up by Becky Rickey, this team is examining all the necessary considerations to begin hybrid services
(in-person and online) as quickly and safely as possible. Others on the task force are Aminia Baruti, Jerko Dabelic, Mike Garvey, Janette Jordan, Peter Lynch, Dian Pierce, Theresa Riggs, Catherine Smith, and Julie West.

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.

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 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!
 
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.
