05/20/2018 Knowing That You Know, and Being Truth
Petacost is the day we celebrate the "arrival" of the Holy Spirit into consciousness by Jesus' apostles. When you read the story, they were pretty clueless. Jesus knew that unless and until he went away, they wouldn't come into their own power. So he gave them instructions, they followed those instructions, and - oh my goodness! - they DID indeed come into their power. We can (and must) do the same thing.
05/13/2018 Mother's Day- Birthing Creativity
There's such a range of emotions around Mother's Day... some idolize their moms, other's find it hard to forgive their mothers' cluelessness. Wherever we are on that spectrum, it's important to remember that the "mothering" spirit is within each of us, regardless of gender, and that we have within us the ability (and the urge) to create. We are the ones who will evolve the world; let's choose to do so lovingly.
05/06/2018 - I Am Inspired
We always have the option to claim the inspiration of Divine Wisdom, because It resides within us. The only trick involved is remembering!
04/29/2018 Forgiveness- No Matter What (again!)
Here in the world of humans muddling through doing the best they can (which doesn't always seems so very good), we seem to need to blame someone or something for everything in our lives which doesn't meet our expectations. We get hurt, challenged, things don't go the way we wish they would, and we start making up stories. Generally, those stories center on the perception that nothing wrong is our fault; it's always because of that person, or this economy, or those political parties, or .... At some point, we need to forgive. We need to give up the stories, and give good for the error we perceive in the world. We must forgive, period. There is no loophole, no getting off on a technicality. We must forgive. Teri Wilder is our very special guest artist.
04/22/2018 - Earth Day: We Really Are One
When we see the "Blue Marble" photo of the earth taken from space, it is easy to see that we are indeed One. No boundaries, no politics, no societal divides, no flags, no separation, just Oneness. From our viewpoint here on earth, it's not always so easy to remember. On this Earth Day, we are reminded that care and compassion are important, as we must respect and care for one another, for the animals with whom we share this world, and indeed we must care for this Blue Marble we call 'home".
04/15/18 Normal Day Blessings
It can be easy to think that if we do everything "just right", we'll be spared the day-to-day work of life. Every normal day is an opportunity to awaken to the many, many blessings which pass by unnoticed each and every day.
04/08/18 We Are All Blessed, with guest artist Sky Nelson
Sometimes it's hard to remember, but we are all already blessed. We are all already whole, complete, perfect. We are all, already exactly what we wish to be. Physicist and musical artist Sky Nelson joins us, sharing his creativity and musical gifts..
04/01/18 Easter Sunday, with White Stone Ceremony
It's Easter Sunday, and time to celebrate the opportunity to live our lives from a renewed state of mind and heart. Our tradition of the White Stone meditation allows space to pause, focus within, and discern the focal point of our spiritual path.
03/25/18 Sometimes the Hero's Journey Hurts
Our human, egoic mind really wants to believe that if we do everything just right- say the perfect affirmations, read all the right books, do everything the way it "ought" to be done, that our lives will be happy, chirpy, rainbows and lollipops every day. In Truth, that doesn't seem to be the way things are. Sometimes life hurts. Sometimes we don't know what to do. Sometimes we just need to breathe ourselves through it with faith that we can.
03/18/18 Overcoming, Imagining, and Purpose
Unity's co-founder, Charles Fillmore, was pretty adamant about our mission: according to him, our mission is to bring forth the "New Jerusalem and the New Earth". Our mission is to do whatever it is we can imagine is possible to God, and to overcome the illusions of lack and limitation. How's that?
