Hello dear Unity friends,
Happy Saturday. Wow, as we were driving back from the cities last night, the moon-light was so beautiful on the snow covered country. I do love living here!
Please hold Monique Waters and her family in your prayers, as her mother made her transition this past weekend. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday in the cities.
The front door key-box code is changing tomorrow, so “reply” or get the new code from me.
This Sunday is going to be very fun. During our Celebration Service, we will be installing new members into Unity, which is one of my favorite things to do.
Immediately after our service, we will be holding our USC Annual Meeting. We will be celebrating our accomplishments from 2015, visioning for 2016, and electing new board members. We would love for all congregants to attend. After the meeting, following tradition, we have a group reservation at Drakes Fine Food and Spirits in Sartell for their “all you can eat” breakfast.
Please go to our website (www.UnitySpiritualCenterCM.org) and click on the link, on the front page, and register a time slot to have your (your family’s) picture taken for our new directory. Lifetouch will be at our center on Friday, February 5th, and Saturday, the 6th. I’m seeing all your smiling faces in our new directory. We can also help you to sign up this Sunday.
Wanda and I will be facilitating a new “12 Powers” class on 6 Sundays, starting January 31st, at noon. Please sign up in the foyer. More information below.
January 31st is “Beach Sunday” and we will be holding a luau pot-luck and “spam cook-off.” So pull out those flip-flops and shorts and I’ll turn the heat up just a bit higher than usual. Bring your favorite spam recipe or another dish to share.
We are seeking a small group of volunteers to energize, update, stock and staff our Gift/Book Store. We are seeking volunteers to join the Building Cleaning Team so members can have a once every two months rotation. While I’m thinking of it, we also could use some more volunteers to clear our sidewalk of snow. Please sign up in the foyer or “reply” if any of these opportunities are of interest to you.
If you are interested in becoming a Unity Chaplain, there is going to be a weekend training March 3rd & 4th. Please “reply” or talk to Kathy Horner-Carlson or Terrie Wagner (our chaplains) if you are interested.
There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer (or call the office) for those interested in Prosperity Plus II. I will be calling those signed up this week so we can pick the perfect day and time.
Be sure and turn in your “volunteer hours” sheets in the box in the foyer.
We are forming a “Raffle Committee” for 2016 and you can sign up in the foyer to be part of that committee.
Have a fabulous weekend and I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
Love and abundant blessings,
Hello dear Unity friends,
Happy Wednesday! I wanted to connect with you earlier this week as we have such great events happening.
I just talked with Julie Rust and she has arrived from Nashville! She will be sharing her music and story at our Wonderful Wednesday Celebration Service. Then she, along with her husband, Rusty, will be performing in concert Thursday evening at 7 p.m. The concert is being offered on a $10 love offering basis, and there will be a fun “build your own ice-cream Sunday” intermission. More information about Julie below.
Then come back to the center Friday evening and join Jane and Erin as they facilitate Moon Drumming at 7 p.m. in the Earth Journey Room.
Just a reminder; A Course in Miracles will be cancelled this week due to the concert.
We will be setting up for our August 8th Garage Sale starting this coming Sunday. If you have time to help set up next Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, please sign up in the foyer or call the office. We are going to have fun as we price our larger items, etc. We are also looking for hosts on the 8th as well. You can bring in your used items this week between noon and 4 p.m. (W-F), 6:30 – 8 p.m. (W-F) and with you on Sunday (9 – noon). You can also bring items next week…I’ll let you know those hours later.
This will be our last Sunday to check out the new additions to our Used Book Sale because after the garage sale, we are moving any remaining books on to the VA etc.
There is still time to sign up to join our group that is heading to Unity Village, on August 20th, for a fabulous retreat. More information below.
I was talking with Rev. Pat, from Unity Minneapolis, and he shared with me that over 120 congregants take part in their “automatic giving” program. I want to invite any of you who would like to support our center when you are absent, or simply want an easy method to give, to take an automatic giving form (in the foyer) and you can designate any amount and frequency. If you have any questions, please talk to our treasurer, Dan Haskamp. We so appreciate your positive response to our ‘Generosity Initiative” and I know that you are being blessed as you so bless us.
Have a fabulous week, and I look forward to seeing you at one or all of our upcoming events.
Love and abundant blessings,
Thank you, Dennis Warner for filling in for Rev. Barbara this morning. Your uplifting, positive energy filled the room. We laughed, we sang, we were uplifted by your words of wisdom. It was a great day. I am, I am, I am. And so it is!
I AM One with God – I AM One with Good.
I AM Protected at all times – I AM, I AM, I AM
I AM the Peaceful Child of God – I AM, I AM, I AM
I AM the Prosperous Child of God – I AM, I AM, I AM

Repeat each line three times. I like to say these with a smile, projecting positive energy. Some days I add new ones depending on what speaks to me. Originally, I learned these from Catherine Ponder but over the years have modified it somewhat.

I have faith that Spirit opens new doors of good for me at all times.
My faith lifts me above all fears and concerns
By faith, I now call forth the healing of all parts of my body.
My faith is large enough to receive an infinite flow of good.
When my life is swept by storms, I stand on the rock of faith in the Good.
My positive faith is the key that unlocks the treasure house of riches.
I have faith that my loved ones are being guided and directed i positive ways.
I have faith in my power to do seemingly impossible things.
