Prospering Penny Power

“Find a penny, pick it up and all day long you’ll have good luck!”  We remember this rhyme from childhood with an inner smile at our innocence as children. However, it is truer than we realize!! Unity’s Tracey Street church started with a single penny, given in jest. Charles Fillmore, however took it and blessed it!! He realized that the penny is but an inanimate object. Yet, the IDEA BEHIND it is one of dynamic power; that of unlimited prosperity, ever available to us by right of consciousness! We increase our prosperity through a number of ways, the first being faith—that is IS ours, as children of the Most High! We increase it through gratitude for that which is manifest in our lives, NOW. And, we increase it through SHARING, in which we become the inlet and the outlet of God’s divine idea; an idea which WILL MANIFEST according to our willingness to live and act in harmony with Spiritual LAW!!

A White Stone Beginning

Plato told us, “The beginning is the most important part of the work!” Unity Way Church’s annual White Stone Ceremony celebrates the fact that, in truth, we can ALWAYS, at any moment, start over. Biblically, the white stone signifies acquittal, setting us free and giving us a new name, (spiritually, a new identity/consciousness). As we start this New Year, we can do so renewed in mind and spirit, free from past errors and shortcomings, carrying inside the ability to triumph over whatever challenges we may face. Happy New Year!

Building Bridges

OLD question: “Why did the chicken cross the road?” (In this case, the bridge!) There is but one answer to this question, and that is: To get to the other side! In this life, we will cross many bridges!! The type of bridge will determine the NATURE of what is ON the other side! There are bridges of anger, fear or resentment. They lead to entrapment, discontent, physical ills and worse! There is a better way!! There are also bridges of forgiveness, understanding and compassion all of which lead to FREEDOM, GROWTH AND PEACE! We are invited, this last Sunday of 2020, during our Burning Bowl Ceremony, to leave all this year’s challenges behind; to take with us only those lessons we learned from them. God uses everything for good. Let us be open to that good that we might see it! Happy New Year, one and all!

Gifts Of Christmas

The most exciting part of Christmas, for children is of course, is SANTA, and the presents! Let us, as adults, however, remind ourselves that WE are the gifts of Christmas! The Christmas story is OURS! The perfect Christ child, born of a virgin, is replicated in and through and as US, as we allow the Divine Oneness, the Love and Peace to express through us, not just on this one Holy Day, but throughout the year! It all starts in our hearts, as we allow the Christ Spirit, born anew, each time we remember our Oneness with the Father and each other. And, like the star in that wondrous story of old, it will shine forth, drawing all into the higher consciousness of peace, love and joy! We are being called to BE the Christmas Story, allowing the Indwelling Christ to come forth–as those spiritual qualities the 12 powers represent in us–today, and always! Merry Christmas!
