09/01/2019 Practices of Thriving - Releasing the Things That Are Behind
Every week we speak a denial/affirmation which begins with the words, "Releasing the things that are behind...". Today we start a deep dive into what it means to actually thrive in our lives, and that needs to start with letting go of ALL of the false thoughts, beliefs, habits, ideas, relationships, unforgiveness... everything that no longer serves our claims for living live more abundantly.
08/25/2019 New Voices 2! Diane Lloyd and John McKearney
Today we introduce two more new voices in our Unity/Peace family, Diane Lloyd and John McKearney, credit students in our Spiritual Education and Enrichment (SEE) program.

08/18/2019 7 Habits of Highly Effective People #7: Sharpen the Saw- Balance
Wrapping up our exploration of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, we look at the need to balance our lives. All of our "doing" must come from our ability to "be". That means taking time to rest, relax, renew, and remain gounded in Truth.
08/11/2019 7 Habits of Highly Effective People #6: Synergy
Something a little different this week. As we look at the concept of synergy (which is simply the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts), Rev. Nita shared a video by National Geographic photographer and motivational speaker, Dewitt Jones. Due to copyright issues, we're not including Mr. Jones's talk, but click here to watch it. As we explore synergy, his comments about finding the "next" right answer, and shifting to a lens which celebrates the good are helpful and eye-opening.
08/04/2019 7 Habits of Highly Effective People #5: Seek to Understand
It's been another week of hard news in the world, and understanding can seem hard to come by. No matter how much we want others to understand us, we must be willing to pause, to listen, to pray, and to understand before we ask others to understand us.
07/28/2019 7Habits of Highly Effective People #4; Win/Win or No Deal
We're so used to operating from the basic expectation that everything is a matter of winning or losing, and, in Truth, the most optimal outcomes will always occur when we function from the knowing that my good never comes at you loss. We can ALWAYS choose to expect Good, and always choose to work with others until we come to a point of win/win (or no deal).
07/21/2019 You Matter
One of the most challenging lessons for us to assimilate is that we are ALREADY whole, complete, perfect, and that our words, thoughts, and actions are important. You are not insignificant- YOU MATTER! Licensed Unity Teacher, Susan Smith, shares her insights with us today.
07/14/2019 The Stories We Tell Ourselves
Susan Smith, Licensed Unity Teacher, shares her wisdom with us today. The stories we tell ourselves are important- what are you telling yourself?
07/07/2019 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Interdependance
We're at a pausing point in the 7 Habits- moving from those habits which cultivate our fullest independance, and then taking that independance to the next step, the practices of Inter-dependance. We may think we're doing this work for ourselves, but really, our goal is nothing less than the transformation of humankind!
