Unity as Christianity

In a recent Sunday talk, co-minister Shad Groverland shared inspiring and insightful elements that related the essential definition of Unity as Christian. And there is much to be understood from Shad’s statement, “Unity is Christianity the way Jesus meant it to be.” Watch “Healing Our Religious Past” from March 24, 2019. First, let’s be aware that when Charles Fillmore wrote the credo defining Unity, almost strictly as “a continuation of the educational system inaugurated by Jesus Christ”, he wrote in…

We are All Brothers and Sisters in the Family of God

We are All Brothers and Sisters in the Family of God. We all share the breath of life. And, we all share in each other’s suffering. Let us all pray for the victims of the earthquakes in Mexico City and the hurricanes in the Caribbean. Let us give as we can to help our brothers and sisters so that they may have what they need to survive in this time of crisis.

Miracles Made Easy

A Course in Miracles is not a joyride to enlightenment. ACIM teaches us that miracles are merely the translation of denial into truth.

Change Your Mind And Change Your Life

Change your mind and change your life. What you are presently, in your awareness, saying the truth is, is what you are experiencing the truth to be. That is all you can be experiencing the truth to be.

The Lost Years of Jesus

  The Gospels record Jesus age twelve in the temple.  Then about age thirty at the river Jordan.  That leaves approximately seventeen years unaccounted for.  During those so-called lost years, the child “increased in wisdom and stature,” as Luke wrote.  But was it in the carpenter shop at Nazareth?  According to ancient Tibetan manuscripts, Jesus secretly withdrew from the home of Mary and Joseph at age thirteen. Young “Issa” joined a merchant caravan.  Destination: India and the Himalayas.  At Juggernaut, “the…

Defining the Tao

Defining the Tao One of the most important spiritual works of all time is the “Tao Te Ching”, written by Chinese Master Lao Tzu.  All the information about this ancient Master (551-479 B.C.E.) is highly suspect. Even the meaning of his name is uncertain (the most likely interpretation “the Old Master). The only tangible evidence there is that he even existed is the tiny book of wisdom sayings that he left behind when he vanished, figuratively or literally as the…

Why Santa Loves Unity of Boulder

In 2010, Unity members set a goal to raise the money necessary to incorporate solar energy into their overall energy use. Along with this, Unity pursued changing all of their light bulbs to energy efficient light bulbs and they switched to using recyclable and compostable products in order to cut down on landfills.  Also, Unity researched ways to conserve on the use of water, which led to a turning down of the water pressure in certain areas, water-less urinals, and…

Oh Holy Night

Dear Friends: The Christmas story tells of those who traveled far to witness the birth of Christ. Yet, they were but a few by comparison to the multitudes who crowded into the City of Bethlehem that night. A small band indeed – wise men and shepherds realized the significance of this mystical birth. They sought the Prince of Peace. They followed the starlight that guided them to a cattle shed, beyond the traffic and noise of the city. Meanwhile, the…

What Would Love Do?

Before reacting to a problem or limitation, take a holy pause, and ask yourself what love would do in this situation. “As you become willing to be a representative of love, you will start to attract every good thing that you have ever sought for…fought for…in the world…because the only real power in this entire universe is LOVE.” ~Jack Groverland at Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center.
