Happy Mother's Day!
Braving the Wilderness: 
Practice #4
"Strong Back. Soft Front. 
Wild Heart."
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

 
Strong Back. Soft Front. Wild Heart. ...  Join us for Mother's Day as Rev. Anne concludes her four-part message series based on Brené Brown's book, Braving the Wilderness. Of all the calls to courage Brené has asked of her readers over the years, practicing true belonging may be the most challenging--and the most rewarding! Why? Because often it seems easier to "armor up" instead of cultivating authentic moments of trust. An armored front might sound good when we're trying to make our way through times of uncertainty, but braving the wilderness requires a hard back, a soft front, and a wild heart. And who knows more about that than mothers? 

Suggested Reading: Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown. Click  here  to purchase.

"Be Not Afraid"
11am Rev. Anne Tabor
 
"Be Not Afraid". ...  Time and again, our Master Teacher and WayShower, Jesus, taught us that we have every reason to be fearless--not fearful--when facing challenges. It's not that we don't have occasions in life to be frightened. But there is a distinction to be made in how we take the helm to steer our way through troubled waters with ease, grace, and joy! 
Yes, you read that right. JOY! Join Rev. Anne for an exploration of what it means to use our God given power over our thoughts and feelings in ways that make it less important to focus on being afraid.

YOUR COMMUNITY
Volunteer Opportunities and Services

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.

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 interconnectedness 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.
