Burning Bowl Service
Sunday, December 30th, 2018
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor
Cornell Kinderknecht,
Guest Artist

Join us for our Burning Bowl Service on the last Sunday of the year! It's one of the highest attended events here at Unity of Arlington and a wonderful opportunity to release and let go of those things that do not serve your highest good as you move into 2019 with a fresh start! Come share in this transformative and sacred Unity tradition. 
 
The Burning Bowl Service is one of Unity's most cherished spiritual traditions. It is a profound way to liberate ourselves from anything-big or small-that no longer serves our highest good. This sacred practice creates an opportunity for you to have a transformative experience by writing down the limiting beliefs that are holding you back and then release them to the fire. Watching the flames ignite this small piece of paper, and change it from one form into another, is a powerful cleansing process. Letting go of these old thought patterns clears the spiritual pathway to replace them with new and exciting ways to grow into your Divine Potential! 

Please note, on this Sunday, our YFM will commemorate the spirit of the Burning Bowl Service by having a special Release Ceremony.
Sunday, December 30, 2018
YFM Pocket Change
After the 11am Service

Our youth will be collecting pocket change after the Service on the last Sunday of each month.

White Stone Ceremony
Sunday, January 6, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

Join us as Rev. Anne leads our special Unity tradition of the White Stone Ceremony. This
is your opportunity to listen to the still small voice of Spirit within to discern your guidance for the New Year and beyond. Each congregant will be given a white stone upon which to write their unique word or phrase. This deeply moving and empowering service will help move you into a spiritually energized, inspired, and joyful 2019!

Please note, our Y.O.U./Uniteens will celebrate with their own White Stone Ceremony, while the Unikids will have a special lesson on new beginnings.

YOUR COMMUNITY
Volunteer Opportunities and Services

Have you considered
becoming a Prayer Chaplain?

It is the time of year at Unity of Arlington when we actively seek those who feel called to serve as Prayer Chaplains. Have you been hearing that "voice" that nudges you to consider serving in this way? Well, now is your opportunity to look deeper. Over the next few weeks we will provide information in the newsletter, and during the Sunday announcements, about what is required to become a Prayer Chaplain.

There is a brochure available with information or you can reach out to Prayer Chaplain Co-Leaders NaOra Horton at naora@aol.com , or Rebecca Rickey at Rebecca.rickey@yahoo.com .

So, should you have an inner urging that becoming a Prayer Chaplain and serving in this sacred way is right for you, stay tuned for more information and announcements.

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 understanding 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. 
Youth & Family Ministry

YFM classes meet in the Administration building, next to the Sanctuary, during the 11am Sunday Celebration Service. All children up to 14 years old must be signed in by an adult.  Our classes begin at 11:00 am, but children may arrive as early as 10:30 am. The Youth & Family Ministry at Unity of Arlington includes interactive educational programs for youth ages 4-18, as well as, a 
Nursery for infants and toddlers. We believe in learning through fun!

Unikids (pre-k, age 4 through 5th grade)

Children meet each Sunday morning during the 11:00 am service to explore spiritual truths through a Living Curriculum specifically designed to introduce them to the Unity Principles through interactive, fun activities, and meet their individual learning needs.

Uniteens (6th through 8 grade)

Our Uniteen group meets each Sunday to explore spiritual truths and how these truths relate to their personal lives. This is a safe place for youth in their preteen years (middle school) to connect with others and explore what they believe.  Our Uniteens attend weekend Unitreats for fellowship, lots of fun, and a chance to share their ideas and experiences with other Uniteens in the region.

Y.O.U. - Youth of Unity  (9th through 12th grade)

Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) is an active teen ministry for high school students.
Teens gather on Sunday to explore and discover spiritual truths and learn how these truths  relate to their lives.  Our teens have the opportunity to attend weekend regional rallies for fellowship and sharing their ideas and experiences with other teens in the region.

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.
