Goes Haywire"
Sunday, May 19, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

Have you ever experienced a moment when your "reliable GPS" went wack-a-doodle in your car and you had to trust your own inner guidance system instead? Join Rev. Anne as she explores several of the ways you can get back on track in the midst of difficult times... especially when navigating Divine Discontent! We will look at some powerful spiritual tools that are sure to help guide you along your journey.

Our youth continue the tradition of collecting pocket change after services once a month.  Pocket Change Sunday is now the third Sunday of the month. Your donation of pocket change is deeply appreciated!
"Halfway Up The Mountain "
Sunday, May 26, 2019
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor

Winston Churchill once said, "Never, never, never give up." But never is a really long time! This is why understanding our power of choice is so relative to our spiritual growth. Join Rev. Anne as we explore the meaning behind progress, not perfection. Because every choice you make moves you closer to or further away from your God-given authentic power.
"Are You an 'Inny' or an 'Outy'? "
Sunday, June 2, 2019

Save a Life with CPR
Saturday, May 18, 2019
10am-12pm, Garden Lane Center

We are delighted to offer the opportunity for everyone to learn CPR. This class, taught for us by Department of Justice Red Cross Certified employees, will give you the skills and information you need to successfully implement life saving CPR in an emergency. If it has been a while since you were trained it might be time for a refresher course. Our YFM teachers will receive certification. Others may attend the class to learn the techniques but we will not be able to offer certification for everyone. Please join us for this very important training. A sign-up sheet will be in the foyer beginning May 5, or contact Janette Jordan at 817-832-6251, janettejordan1981@gmail.com.

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 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.
