Prosperous Thinking



From Charles Fillmore's book,  Prosperity

"To be true to the law is to stop looking to the without and to look within for supply. Looking to the within means fixing the mind on God as an ever-present Spirit that is also substance and power. Wrapped up within each of us is a great richness of thoughts. These thoughts are prisoners in the subconsciousness only waiting to be set free to go to work for us. They are waiting for the coming of the Son of God, who releases the prisoners and sets the captives free. This Son is now seeking expression in you; as you. Release your rich thoughts, set free your innate powers, and take from the rich substance of the Father what you will.

Through faith in the overcoming power of Jesus Christ, the sense mind will be overcome and the spiritual mind brought into control of your life and affairs. The sense mind is filled with lacks and limitations; the spiritual mind knows only limitless abundance. You are linked with the universal spiritual mind through the Christ Mind. It is through the Christ Mind that all things come to you; it is the channel to the all-mind of the Father. Make the unity of wholeness with the Christ Mind. Hold that you are master with the Master, one with the all-providing substance and that your prosperity runneth over. As you begin this process of unifying yourself consciously with the inner life and substance, it will begin to well up within you and to overflow into your affairs, so that you will be prosperous. Remain true to this inner life no matter what the outer appearance may be, and you cannot help but bring the good things of life into manifestation."

Timeless wisdom continues to direct us within; continues to remind us there is more to the world than what we see; and the true Source of our good is not the temporary world we see.   Find your prosperity connection.  Reverend Joy

Fall Into Meditation

Saturday, October 20th, 10am to 3pm at ULV

Join Reverend Joy for a day exploring meditation practices.  With our focus on the letting go autumn invites us into, and the creative beauty of colors, and the crispness that awakens the senses, we will dive into a series of meditative activities.  Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather.  Bring pillows, shawls or whatever supports your practice.  We will enjoy a light lunch and eating meditation.  

Registration of $25 includes the meal and all materials.  

Please register by Oct 17th so we can plan food and activities.  



Becoming Love!  
Our Fall Faith Series

Based on Bob Goff's bestselling book, "Everybody Always," our Fall Faith Series will explore ways to reconnect with greater expressions of our true nature-love.  Each week we'll have a "practice card" (also available on our website with the sermon podcasts and texts) that will allow you to take the ideas in Sunday's sermon out into everyday practice.  Join us Oct 14, 21, 28 and Nov 4.  


  
New Member Sunday is THIS Sunday!

Join us as we welcome 
5 new members to 
our ULV community!

  
What's UP?

Join the Board Sunday, Oct 21st after service as we explore Unlimited Possibilities for ULV.

We'll discuss the things we've accomplished, the plans we have and the challenges we face.  We look forward to your input and please bring your questions.  We want to hear what you think and how you would like to contribute to the Possibilities unfolding at ULV.  You can also reach out to any board member on Sundays!
