Heart Thoughts: Looking Forward to Spring

Quite the storm we had this week! Very grateful it waited until Sunday night into Monday. If I remember correctly last year we had storms mostly on Sundays. This year is good for the ministry, not so good for the schools. However, we are both better equipped because of COVID and can shift to online if needed. Although we are in the midst of winter, attention is being directed to spring and Earth Day, gardens, and cleanup. If you have interest in helping plan an Earth Day event, please talk to Mari, Betti Lu Lewis or myself. I also had…

Heart Thoughts: Peacemakers

How are you? We are more than halfway through the month of January, and I am wondering how 2023 is shaping up for you. I am happy to say that we are seeing new folks on Sunday morning, and I am so grateful. I know how important the Unity message is for our world right now. So to the new folks keep coming back… at least try us for a few times before you decide on whether what we are offering is what you are looking for. The message on Sunday was to highlight the birthday of Rev. Martin Luther…

So, the next potluck on a Sunday will be February 12. Just in time to celebrate Valentine’s Day. A special…

Heart Thoughts: An Exciting Time to Be

The best of me to be in 2023… what a great slogan that is for each of us. I have mentioned before that I am learning about astrology and in listening to the predictions for 2023, I am hearing it is a time for each of us to stand in our truth. It is a time when the old structures are crumbling, and the power is coming back to the people. It is important that we are ready for this change, and it requires us to go within and do a thorough search of our beliefs and let go of…

Heart Thoughts: Wait for the Light

Today is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year and the longest night. It is the official start of winter, even though we had our first storm this past week. This solstice marks the symbolic death and rebirth of the sun. To celebrate the solstice, join us for a drumming circle. It will begin at 6 p.m. and end around 8 …no experience needed… bring a drum if you have one. We are just days away from Christmas. The Christmas Eve service will begin at 5 p.m. It will include candle lighting. Bring your family for this traditional…
