Heart Thoughts: Letters From Myrtle

I hope this message finds you all well. As you might already know, I will be taking the next two Sundays off, but fear not, you will still receive updates on all the happenings during this time.

Firstly, let me share some exciting news about the parking lot project. We have a total of 84 parking spaces, and I’m thrilled to announce that 13 spaces have already been paid for, leaving us with 71 spaces available. I’m throwing out a challenge to all of you: Let’s work together and have all the remaining parking spaces purchased by August 27, when I return. I know we can achieve this goal as a community!

On a heartwarming note, it was such a pleasure to have Julie Thompson join us last Sunday. Her presence truly brings a special light to our congregation, and she means a lot to each one of us. I’d also like to express my gratitude to all those who contributed to our potluck; the food was fabulous, but more importantly, it provided us with a wonderful opportunity to sit, eat, and chat together. True fellowship is where connections are forged, and it warms my heart to see so many of you coming together in unity.

Myrtle Fillmore

Sunday was Myrtle Fillmore, mother of Unity’s birthday. She would have been 178. The focus of the message was on the way she began the many, many letters responding to prayer requests. Yes, it was during the time of snail mail. Even before telephones. This was the beginning of Silent Unity, now called Unity Prayer Ministry.

Here are some of the beautiful words she used:

I enjoyed your letter, and my soul praises you for the splendid and strong and radiant individual I know you to be. If you could only catch the vision of yourself which I hold of you, the skies above would hardly hold your songs of praise and joy! (1915)

We shall rise up to be glad for this “night” in which we have turned within to the great stream of light, life, love, substance, and power, and have let them flow silently into our consciousness, to raise it to the Christ understanding. (1912)

Greater faith in God, and in yourself, and your own ability – ability to change your mind, and to think true thoughts – will open the way for greater wisdom, and greater manifestation of supply, and joy and opportunity for advancement.
Now, great faith doesn’t come as rain from the skies. No, it comes as a result of your deliberate claiming of faith as one of your God-given faculties; and then by seeking to do the thing which proves that you have faith. (1924)

On August 27 I will be sharing the three-fold healing that Myrtle practiced.

If you missed the service, you can watch here.

We have a wonderful online audience on Sunday morning and here is one who is listening (or maybe I put him to sleep) to what I have to say.

This is Henry from Alexandria, VA.

You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey

Beginning in September
