From the Minister

Dear Friends,
 
Victor Hugo famously said, "Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.”
 
And I agree!
 
The time has come for women to appear on American paper currency. Just this week, the idea to add abolitionist Harriet Tubman to the $20 bill (which had been halted the last several years), has been revived. This includes efforts to speed up the plan to do so.
What a wonderful way to demonstrate that diversity matters. Especially since we’ve got so much work to do. And so, let us join together and hold the prayerful vision of this coming to fruition.
 
There is much for which to be hopeful. We are the ones.
 
In Love and Unity,
Rev. Anne Tabor

Unity in a Nutshell #4:
“Prayer On Demand”
Sunday, January 31, 2021
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor
*Facebook Live
 
Unity Principle #4: Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.
 
In Unity, we practice affirmative prayer. This is the same method Jesus taught when he said, “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24). Prayer is available to us anywhere, anytime, in the midst of any circumstance. Join Rev. Anne as she continues her back-to-basics series, “Unity in a Nutshell 2021,” and we explore how you can remake your life with a deeper understanding of just this one spiritual principle about how prayer works.

Sunday, February 7, 2021
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor
*Facebook Live
 
Unity Principle #5: Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.
 
What does it mean to live the truth you know? The answer just might surprise you! Join Rev. Anne for the conclusion of her Sunday Message Series, “Unity in a Nutshell 2021,” as we look at how the first four principles lay the groundwork to then guide us in the ways we show up in life. Understanding this spiritual principle is absolutely, positively, one-hundred percent vital to taking inspired action.

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.
