WEEKLY UPDATE May 03, 2022

Message from the Ministers

Affirmation: As children of God, we express the unconditional love of God.


Unconditional love is a gift of Spirit that we can share with one another as members of God’s family. The love of God is so powerful that it heals us – emotionally and physically – and heals our relationships also.


The love of God nurtures and supports us in our growing – up years and beyond. When we are not quite sure if we can reach a goal, it is the gentle whisper of a voice that says, “Keep on keeping on, because you can do it!”



Every one of us – mother or father, sister or brother, friend or neighbor – who is willing to love unconditionally is expressing the spirit of God as compassion, acceptance, and comfort. Loving one another, we are sharing the love of God for us and within us.

Excerpt from Daily Word May 1999

Celebration of Earth Day just passed,

yet it is never too late to Bless our

Mother Earth!

                                                

           “Sweet Spirit, thank you for Earth. With each step I take on its land and every stroke I swim in its waters, I treat my home well. With each breeze that caresses my face, I am reminded of the glory of this natural habitat.

           I pray that all inhabitants will be respectful of Earth and treat it well, making right decisions that will bless generations for years to come.”      Daily Word Jan. 11, 2003


“In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void…Then God said, Let there be light’, and there was light.”        Genesis 1:1-3


 

How Rich We Are!


How rich we are when we count our blessings! We are rich because the invisible substance of God flows in and through us. It goes out into all direction! There is no place that we can go where we are not bathed in riches.


Our idea of lack is an illusion. Just take a look around at the bountiful trees, the abundance of the stars in the night sky, and the grains of sand on the beach, all are reminders that riches surround us.


 Being in this consciousness, we are able to draw to us all that is ours and that our needs are being met in this very moment. This is our inheritance! Name it! Claim it! 

Chaplains Corner

Unity’s five-step prayer process, a gentle guide to quiet the mind and turn inward.


  Relax

  Close your eyes. Relax, breathe deeply, and let go of     outer concerns.


  Concentrate

  Quiet your mind. Begin to focus your thoughts on the spirit of God within you.


  Meditate

  With an open mind and a receptive heart, feel the peace of God’s presence. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10 RSV).


  Embrace the Silence

  In the silence of your soul, know that you are one with God. Allow this realization to permeate your being.


  Give Thanks

  There is no one right spiritual practice. Find what works for you. But keep in mind … “Faith is never passive. Do not delude yourself, get busy.” Complete article Healing meditation here
