Note from Rev. Steve Bolen
"America, the Beautiful - What We Focus on Expands"
In Unity, our third principle is one that often doesn't "get the press" that it deserves. The principle is stated in several ways but simply put it is: "What we focus on expands." We often hear it as "Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind" or "The Law of Cause and Effect." Jesus in the Gospels taught, paraphrasing, "sow good seeds (thoughts and feelings) and reap what resonates with those sown seeds." Conversely, sow seeds of discontent and judgement and don't be surprised when that stuff pops up in your life.
What does all this have to do with "America, the Beautiful?" Well, it's Memorial Day Weekend and a good time to "focus" on our Country and I feel, an especially good time to focus on what is beautiful about America and how we can apply this very Law personally to see and experience the great good all around us. The "world thinking" insists that we have to fix things "out there." But our Unity teaching says the opposite - "See it right to set it right." We live in a beautiful world but we will miss its beauty if the clouds of negativity are resting in front of our eyes.
Join us on Sunday, May 30 as we celebrate the good and the true and the beautiful!
With Love and Blessings, Rev. Steve Bolen
Resources from Last Sunday
I remember You, Heaven.
I remember You in the laughter of a child.
I remember You in the soft embrace of my Beloved.
I remember You in the babble of the brook,
In the depths of the forest green.
I remember You in the song of the blue bird
And the moo of the cow.
I remember You Heaven in the quiet of my Heart,
From the fullness of my Heart, I remember You.
The Finance Team periodically reviews our financial statements, makes recommendations to the Board on the annual budget and advises the Board on financial policy. Please consider joining the team, especially if you have any finance or accounting experience. You can contact Dean Saulmon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any interest or would like further information.
Living, Loving Spirit, as we breathe in your healing love, we relax and surrender to the good that awaits us. We place ourselves, our spiritual community & our Board of Directors into your loving embrace knowing that our present experience is a catalyst for growth. In the silence, we open ourselves to divine ideas and Spirit’s guidance. All things are possible through God in us.
As we cocreate with God, we have the courage, faith and wisdom to find the best and highest solution for our
congregation to expand and thrive in this ever changing world. Every day is a new beginning that brings boundless opportunities for growing in Christ Consciousness.
We gratefully release the past and open our hearts and minds to give and receive boundless blessings.
This Sunday is 5th Sunday and Carol Light is ready for Fifth Sunday after-church picnics at her home south of Walburg.
Carol asks that if you are NOT vaccinated, that you wear a mask and practice safe distancing, at your own comfort level. It is important to her that everyone is comfortable when they arrive!
Those of you wishing to do a watch party at Carol's place on the 30th, feel free to arrive around 10:30 with your laptop or cell phone. Carol has lots of nooks and crannies in her home that can accommodate “break-out” groups. Again, she asks that you either be vaccinated or practice safe distancing and masking to keep yourself and others safe and comfortable.
(BTW, Sunday is Carol's birthday.)
