“Hotline to the Divine”

Dear Beloved One,

Have you ever had the desire for a
direct connection to the Divine where
you could ask questions and make your requests known with immediate answers given? Did you know that this hotline to the Divine already exists?

This Sunday I share more about what this hotline is and how you can use it to create an even greater connection with the Presence that is everywhere present, within, through, and as you too. Learn what truly heightens our connection with Spirit, always bringing us greater wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.

Myrtle Fillmore in “Healing Letters,” writes, “Spirit intends you to be a radiating center that will draw to you whatever you need to be well and strong, successful and prosperous.”
Join us and our guest musician, Kristen Goodman, for a fabulous morning of song, inspiration, and a deepening of our understanding and relationship with the One that is breathing you now and always. Until then, may you know great peace, the Presence of Love, and blessings of all good things today and always.

With great love and gratitude always,
Rev. Liz

“Centered in Love, Inspired by Spirit,
We Awaken, Connect, and Thrive!”

  • Any Community Member who has identified themselves as a part of the Unity of Fort Collins community for at least two years is eligible.
  • All Council positions serve for two years (this may be adjusted to some terms being for one year this one time as we need to stagger the Council changes) and may be re-elected for another term.
  • It is a volunteer position. The giving of your talent, leadership and wisdom is the reward.
  • You will have the opportunity to form deeper relationships with other council members and your ministers.
  • There is a training class required of all Council Members provided by Unity Worldwide Ministries.
  • Candidates are elected by the Members at the Annual Membership Meeting.

The Unfolding Now

The keys to self-knowledge and deep contentment are right here before us in this very moment—if we can simply learn to live with open awareness. In The Unfolding Now, A. H. Almaas presents a marvelously effective practice for developing the transformative quality of presence. Through a particular method of self-observation and contemplative exploration that he calls inquiry, we learn to live in the relaxed condition of simply “being ourselves,” without interference from feelings of inadequacy, drivenness toward goals, struggling to figure things out, and rejecting experiences we don’t want. Almaas explores the many obstacles that keep us from being present—including defensiveness, ignorance, desire, aggression, and self-hatred—and shows us how to welcome with curiosity and compassion whatever we are experiencing.

Unity is proud to partner with ClimateWise!

ClimateWiseLogo

What is ClimateWise, you ask?

ClimateWise” is a free voluntary business program that encourages the adoption of strategies proven to use energy, water, and land more efficiently, while generating less waste, lower operating costs and reducing greenhouse gases.”

 

Unity has achieved “Platinum” status.

 


The Uni-Teams

 

A few years ago, when we had the forums and asked folks what they wanted to see at Unity, you asked for more personal interaction. You asked to get involved. So the Uni-Teams were born. At that time, the teams were formed according to the interests folks spoke of.

Since that time, some of the teams have thrived, some have lost energy. So at your request, we have reorganized them. Have a look at what’s available and let us know if you’d like to participate in one (or more!).

Don’t see a team for a subject/area that you’re passionate about? No worries.
Pitch your team idea to us. You can even be the chairperson.

Here is a list of the current teams and their description:

 

OutReach Team 

  • Provide service to help support under-served individuals and communities external to our Unity—in our neighborhood, town, state, country and world, enabling them to become more self-sufficient and prosperous.

 

Hospitality Team 

  • Focusing on raising community awareness of our wonderful Unity facility, and hosting additional appropriate events in our Unity home. We have several existing Unity hosts currently trained in sound system setup.

 

Facilities Team

Care of our Unity home

  • Includes building maintenance and improvements
  • Grounds upkeep and landscaping, ice mitigation, sprinkler system etc.

 

Community Life Team

  • Nurturing and caring for our Unity community in the form of movie nights, book study, education, classes, etc. “In-house” events for our Unity members to encourage bonding, engagement, education and spiritual growth.

Prayer Requests

prayerrequestsSilent Unity
1-800-NOW PRAY (669-7729)

In need of a friendly voice and an affirmative prayer for yourself or someone else?

Silent Unity is a 24-hour, 7-days-a-week, even-on-holidays, all-faith, free support service provided by Unity Village, at Unity Headquarters, in Missouri. You simply call the number and you are greeted with a lovely recorded voice for a (very!) brief hold, then a live person comes on the line and talks to you and tells you that they are privileged to pray with you today, and asks how they may join you in prayer.

All requests are kept confidential.

After your prayer, he/she will ask if you would like to receive a support letter.

Then they take your prayer request and write it on a piece of paper and take that paper to their Chapel, where in 30-minute shifts, someone stays in prayer 24/7.

Your request is held there in their Chapel for 30 days, being prayed over constantly.

Myrtle Fillmore started Silent Unity as a prayer group. People started writing in and requesting prayers, and they would pray on those issues and answer the letters. When the amount of letters arriving became overwhelming, they had a phone line put in to handle more volume. This was in the early 1900’s. It has been a free, supportive service ever since.

You can call their number (1-800-669-7729) and talk to someone, email them, or you can even download an app for you mobile device.

You can also submit a written prayer request at our Unity. The Prayer Box is prayerboxlocated in the entry. Just write your request on a piece of paper and put it in the (locked) box. All notes are kept confidential unless otherwise requested. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 970-482-1620 or contact via this website.
