01/19/2020 Basics 3: Working With Thoughts and Intention

11/17/2019 Practices of Thriving 10: The (super)Practice of Tithing
For those who are willing, the practice of tithing can be a very helpful practice. There's no requirement in Unity to tithe; we do teach that it is a powerful practice. Unity/Peace, Tucson is a tithing center, founded by tithers, and primarily supported by tithers. If tithing a full 10% seems too scary, start with something smaller and grow your practice. Thank you for listening- we know it's a challenge, because we've all been there!
