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…

“I will continue to live from the center of my wide-open heart, Nia opens me!”

Today I was leaving my dance class with my daughter and I was flying high, and extremely inspired.  I have been studying “Nia,” for about 2 years now and it still surprises me how much I still learn, how much it has transformed my physical strength, my heart and my mind. There is a growing bond that happens between the people that regularly attend and I am filled with gratitude for each and every one of them.  There is a…

The Oneness Immersion

When I stand at the pulpit, or write my blogs, I want you to know that I don’t see myself separate from you.  I see myself as part of you as you are a part of me.  My goal is to immerse myself in oneness with you.  I want to reflect the kind of love for you that Spirit has for you and so therefore I am standing in that same glow of your beauty and mine. I don’t want…

Shutting Your Shadow Down

If you are too afraid to look back at your shadow, then your shadow may have a lot more power than you would like over your dreams, your passions. your desires.     It does take courage to look into your past or even your present day negative emotions, and find what is hiding in the shadows. Yet when you summon the courage to go there, the power of the shadow diminishes. That is why the shadow work is so powerful! …

The epidemic of loneliness in young people and how spiritual youth groups can help!

The topic of this blog post was requested by a Unity congregant. The fall off of people identifying as part of a spiritual community as a daily or weekly part of life is on the rise. With social media being the main outlet for interacting with one another, we are seeing an epidemic of loneliness in our culture not just because of social media, but it is the emotional state created when people have fewer social contacts and meaningful relationships.…

How to get out of your own way when things aren’t going your way!

Do you feel like you are in a challenging spell where you feel like you can’t find your footing in your creative or abundant or romantic out-picturing inside or out? Is everything feeling like it has fallen a little dead and the flow of life has come to a halt? If you have a spiritual practice you will recognize these phases sooner, where you realize that things aren’t actually working out for you right now and you are asking questions…

Unity as a Spiritual Movement

For thousands of years religion has tried to sell itself as the solution to our individual and global problems, with dogmatic ideas about how to live and worship. These ideas have been applicable and beneficial for a select few, but by and large humanity has been faced with the realization that we are still plagued with the same problems we had hundreds of years ago. People feel broken, the world is in conflict and religion has fallen short of delivering on its promise.
