Heart Thoughts: Sufficiency

June has arrived, ushering in the warmth of summer. As schools wrap up and vacation plans unfold, I trust you’re looking forward to some delightful times ahead. At Unity, we’re thrilled to present a lineup of events that promise both enjoyment and fellowship.

Join us next Sunday for a session of Zero Balancing, hosted by Julie Sargent and her esteemed colleagues, at 12:30 p.m. You’re welcome to bring your lunch or step out and return for this rejuvenating experience.

Mark your calendars for Friday, June 14, as we celebrate Unity’s Got Talent…and Food. It’s an evening to discover the incredible talents within our community, complemented by a delicious taco bar to kick off the festivities. To ensure we cater to everyone, please register in advance.

labyrinthThis gathering isn’t just about talent and tacos; it’s a pivotal fundraiser to revitalize our labyrinth. To add to the excitement and help us reach our $2,000 target, we’re hosting a Silent Auction. Should you wish to contribute a service, gift basket, or auction item, kindly reach out to Sue Vittner at svittner@yahoo.com.

While these are just highlights, our calendar is brimming with more. I encourage you to visit our website and sign up for the events that resonate with you. Let’s embrace the spirit of the season together!

This week, we journey further into The Soul of Money as we wrap up the enlightening insights of chapter 5. This segment explores the intricate relationship between our emotions, spirituality, and societal views on money. It invites us to transition from a mindset of scarcity to one of sufficiency, urging us to make financial decisions that resonate with our deepest values and passions.

The narrative centers around two individuals: a CEO from a prominent Chicago company and Gertrude, an active church member from Harlem. Their stories are rich with teachings pertinent to us all. If you missed the opportunity to join us for the service, either in person or virtually, I highly recommend watching the recording. You can access it here.

To impart some wisdom from the chapter, I’d like to share a couple of impactful quotes. Lynne Twist reminds us, “Money, like blood, must circulate, be shared, and flow towards endeavors that affirm life to maintain the health of the community.”

Charles Fillmore, in his work Prosperity, eloquently states, “True prosperity doesn’t come from owning things, but from the understanding that we have free and open access to a boundless repository of goodness.” These words inspire us to reflect on the true essence of wealth and abundance.

Here is the affirmation we share together:

I have faith in the substance of God. I have free and open access to an inexhaustible storehouse of good. I am grounded in wisdom and love. I am bringing abundance into my world now.

Join me next week as we move to Chapter 6 and Sufficiency: The Three Truths: What You Appreciate Appreciates.

Know that you are so very loved and appreciated.

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