WEEKLY UPDATE January 04, 2022
Message from the Ministers

Affirmation: I live life as a prayer.

My prayers expand beyond mere words spoken to God. My thoughts and emotions are also part of my prayers. I am always transmitting them. I am praying most effectively when what I say, think, feel, and do is aligned with that for which I pray.

When I pray for healing, I affirm wholeness; I focus on feelings of peace and well-being. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of God’s presence at work within me. I take actions to care for my body’s physical needs of food and rest. I visualize my body healthy, whole, and functioning well. My prayers are echoed thought my being. 

With awareness, intention, and practice, I develop and strengthen my prayer habit as a holistic and constant aspect of how I approach life.

Silent Songs
By Donna Miesbach
 







Nature's creations,
Though silent they be,
Speak to us all
Eloquently.
No voice have they
Nor tongue nor pen.
Simply in being
Their message is given.
Oh what a lesson
To those who have tongues
That simply in being
The Spirit hath sung!


 
Next Sunday Rev. Denise’s message title is Lectio Divina. The Latin phrase “lectio divina” may be translated as “divine reading.” It is a contemplative way of reading the Bible or any spiritual reading. Join Rev. Denise next week as she shares a way to experience scripture or any spiritual reading.

The shocking truth about prosperity is that it is shockingly right instead of shockingly wrong
for you to be prosperous!...

God's rich supply is all around you universally, as well as innately within you, as talents and abilities and ideas longing for expression. But that rich supply and substance must be contacted and used. Your mind is your connecting link with it.

Your attitudes, your mental concepts, beliefs, and outlook are your connecting links with God's rich substance and your access to it. God can only do for you what He can do through you, by means of your thoughts and ideas which lead to your reactions. Thus, prosperous thinking opens the way to prosperous results.
Ask yourself…What am I thinking?  

Except from The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity

Lord’s Prayer
Read on 1/2/22

Loving Creator, we honor you,
and we honor all that you have made. 
Renew the whole world in the image of your love.
Give us what we need for today, and a hunger to see the whole world fed.  Strengthen us for what lies ahead; heal us from the hurts of the past;  Give us courage to follow your call in this moment. For your love is the only power, the only home, the only honor we need, in this world and in the world to come.
Amen.             
Paraphrased by Sarah Dylan Breuer.

Each year we hear sung the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” In Unity we recognize the 12 days of Christmas as a time to focus on our 12 Powers attributes which allows us to live our lives “spiritually strong and beautifully enlightened” because these divine tools are always available to us.

First day of Christmas – FAITH - Walking in faith, my steps are sure, divine guidance is clear, and my path is illuminated.

Second day of Christmas – STRENGTH – Every experience of my life allows my inner strength to blossom.

Third day of Christmas – WISDOM – I invite inner wisdom to guide me to the right decisions, the best steps forward, and the perfect way to bless others with my words and actions.

Fourth day of Christmas – LOVE - I welcome love into my life. Now I find that joy, success, health, wisdom, abundance, and harmony surround me now.

Fifth day of Christmas – POWER - The presence and power of Spirit now manifest in me and through me. I use my inner power for good in
our world.

Sixth day of Christmas – IMAGINATION - I create big, bold, and brilliant imaginings. My visions are lofty, and my dreams are awesome.

Seventh day of Christmas – UNDERSTANDING - With spiritual understanding, I see myself and others with compassion.

Eighth day of Christmas – WILL - I move forward with confidence as I consciously choose each step on my path.

Ninth day of Christmas – ORDER - As I affirm there is one presence and one power in my life, all else falls into place. I claim divine order now.

Tenth day of Christmas – ZEAL - My zeal shines from me, lighting my way forward and brightening our world. I glow!

Eleventh day of Christmas – RELEASE - In letting go, I create space and energy for the new.

Twelveth day of Christmas - LIFE - I choose to live my life as a loving, harmonious, delight-filled experience.
