Guatemala Team Movie

at Unity in the Sanctuary

Love Offering Appreciated

In preparation for the March 2018 trip to La Bendición, the Guatemala Team is showing a movie at Unity about Guatemala to give the travelers (and the whole community supporting La Bendición) some background about the history and struggles of the Mayans in Guatemala, as well as current day pressures and oppression that still exist.

 

February 23rd at 6pm ~ Ixcanul
Bring your dinner to eat during the movie, and dessert will be provided afterwards. Please do plan to stay after the movie to enjoy each other’s company and discuss the movie.

Made in 2016. Runs 1h 31min. Kaqchikel with English subtitles. This film focuses on the life of a young Mayan women’s attempts to better her life in the midst of an arranged marriage setup by her parents.

This story has mature themes that may not be suitable for children.

Love Offering appreciated. 

Fundraising money will go toward the general March 2018 fund to help offset costs of the travelers and interpreters for the trip.

Please contact Mike Hawes for more details and with questions: mike_hawes@keysight.com

Movie Night

 

Wednesday, March 7th

6:30pm at Unity

Rated PG-13

Popcorn and snacks provided or you can bring a snack to share.

 

When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy he retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death. But it’s not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.

Including Our Children in our Services

 

We invite you to bring the children and arrive a few minutes early for the 10:30 (second) service

We are finding more ways to include our children in our services. At the 10:30 service, we will begin with our Unity opening and a children-oriented song. Then we will have “Time with our Children,” where the kids will sit on the floor up front, while we all listen to a story together (Miss Pam has the most amazing collection!) or participate in a spiritual lesson. After that, the children will be invited to go to Sunday School, while the adults continue the service. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Call for Fiber Art for the Rumi Room

Quilt by Maryte Collard on Etsy.

We need fiber artwork of all sizes for the walls of the Rumi Room. It is very echo-y in there and fabric on the walls would help out with that.

The artwork will be rotated monthly if we have enough folks interested. You are welcome to put a price tag on your item if you are willing to sell it. The art work can be made by you, someone you know, or just really lovely to look at. 

Even small fiber art pieces may be submitted for approval.

Fiber arts only.  NO paintings, artwork framed in glass, “fibers” that are not “soft,” stretched canvas, or photographs please.

Rules:

  • All pieces must be submitted via digital photograph(s) with dimensions, and approved by committee before anything is hung. Do not bring anything to Unity until approved, please.
  • All hanging methods must only use small nails or push pins and must be approved also, prior to hanging. We do not want large holes and molly bolts, etc. in the Rumi Room walls.
  • You are responsible for making your artwork hang-able and for hanging and taking down your work. We have ladders and stepstools.
  • All art will hang for one month unless there are no others in line, and then the art will hang for as long as both Unity and you are in agreement that it should remain hanging.
  • All art may be tagged and sold by the artist – with the money going to the artist or to Unity. If the art sells, then at the end of the month, it may be taken by the new owner.
  • After approval, all artwork must be installed and then taken down during regular Unity office hours:  Sun – Thurs, 830am – 1130am.
  • Submit digital photos (include dimensions / size) to Grace in the office:  office@unityfc.org

Need childcare at a Unity evening or

weekend event?

 

No worries.


Just contact Pam at least 24 hours ahead of the event and Unity will pay for childcare for that event. Please note that Unity can provide childcare for evening and weekend events only, as it is almost impossible to find anyone to help during weekdays. 

 

 

The Council & staff recognize the need for childcare at Unity events. And Unity is happy to pay someone in order to give you more opportunities to join in.

If you need childcare at a Unity event, please be so kind as to contact Pam
(text please: 970-391-8374) at least 24 hours before an event to let her know, so that she can arrange it.

And then if you “order” childcare and your plans change, please be so kind as to let her know, so she can plan accordingly.

Join the Childcare List

If you would like to be on a list to provide childcare and be paid for your time, please contact Pam to let her know. She is accepting adult as well as teenage candidates for this list.

Thank you! 🙂

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 ~ JoEllen Fulton

  • 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 ~ Leane Gabel

Care of our Unity home

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

 

 

Community Life Team ~ Lil McBrien

  • 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.

Don’t move the Unity piano!

 

joythe piano

Our grand piano is named “Joy” and sits up on the stage in just the correct and appropriate spot. Why is that her specific spot and why can’t she be moved—not even by professional piano movers?

 

Because the stage used to be smaller. And when we got Joy, the stage was extended out and that new part was built to withstand her (considerable) weight. The old part of the stage is not built to withstand her weight and moving her to that part of the stage could result in Joy crashing right through the stage, damaging the stage and possibly herself.

 

So PLEASE! Do not move her – not even a little bit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. Peggy checks the box on Mondays and your information is kept confidential by her. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 970-482-1620 or contact via this website.
