Reflecting further on Myrtle and Charles Fillmore’s covenant with Spirit and their dedication to the Society of Silent Unity, I am moved by their complete and utter faith in the power of prayer. And I am deeply grateful for the Silent Unity ministry that continues to this day.
Recently I came across an article in the Unity Leadership Magazine by Donna Johnson, in which she worded the 4th Unity principle this way:
Prayer and meditation connects us directly to the spiritual essence of all things, enhances our wisdom, and expands our capacity to love.
As we gather ourselves in one service this Sunday at 10am, I look forward to exploring and practicing this principle together and to celebrating the Unity that enfolds and embraces all of our diversity.
Albert Einstein said: “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Myrtle and Charles Fillmore were definitely on that same page! So much so that they had the audacity to create and sign a covenant with “the Spirit of Truth,” proclaiming the dedication of every aspect of their lives to said Spirit and declaring what they expected from this Spirit in return.
Sunday’s topic will focus on this declaration and what we can learn from the Fillmores about “Audacious Imagining.”
Don’t forget this is also the weekend when we will be showing the Unity movie, The Twelve Powers. The Unity movement is pretty amazing – and we are a part of it!
So much Love,
This Sunday we are blessed to have a Jewish rabbi with an incredible background as our guest speaker. “Rebbe Zev” will be sharing a story from the Hebrew Scriptures and sharing his psychological/metaphysical interpretation of it. For information about him, please visit his website.
We will also be gifted with a beautiful rendition of “Stand By Me,” sung by Kirsten Bolton and Franklin, and the Tunitics will share “Lean On Me” combined with “We Shall Overcome” in honor of Dr Martin Luther King Day.
When we gather together on Sundays to celebrate the strength in our Unity, we lift each other up and gather strength for the coming days. I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s the highlight of my week!
So much Love,

I love the story of the ancient astrologers who traveled from the East following a star looking for what they didn’t know was going to be a paradigm shift.
(In case you don’t recognize the description, it’s the legend of the “3 Kings who traversed afar.”)
It’s a beautiful example of a difficult spiritual journey that leads to a big awakening—an epiphany! To me, one of the most powerful metaphors in the story is that of traveling in the dark. The light that guides the travelers comes from a particular star, which of course can’t be seen in the daytime.
Sometimes our most powerful spiritual experiences take place in our darkest times. But we have to be willing to open our eyes—even when we are afraid. The light of Love is always present. If we stay open, we will find our way.
