Being Enough

Mon, 10/01/2018 - 11:27am
Affirmation: I rise up and reclaim my true identity as a sacred being. Sitting on Cocoa Beach in Florida, my bottom on wet sand, I enjoyed the spot where spent waves lap the land. Warm and foamy water flowed over the lower half of my body. With each receding wave, an accumulation of ocean refuse was deposited around me—lengths of seaweed and shards of shells. I was close enough to the ground...

World Day of Prayer, held annually on the second Thursday in September, unites Unity and draws in New Thought partner communities for a 24-hour period of prayer practice.

Letting Go With Grace

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 10:39am
From the September/October 2017 issue of Unity Magazine®. This article is a finalist in the 2018 Folio Eddie Awards. In the six years since I quit work to care for my mother who has dementia, I've learned lots of things—including some I'd rather not know. Letting go has been my hardest struggle. As Mom’s disorder has progressed, many things have changed. I don’t like change. There are always...

Give Me Five

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 10:38am
From the May/June 2018 issue of Unity Magazine®. This article is a finalist in the 2018 Folio Ozzie Awards. Peace and clarity are easy to find during a sunset meditation or an evening yoga class. But tomorrow morning when the world rushes in with its latest headline news, not to mention the daily pressures of our “to-do” lists, we can be easily thrown off center. What matters to us in...

Going for Greatness

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 10:38am
From the July/August 2017 issue of Unity Magazine®. This article is a finalist in the 2018 Folio Eddie Awards. Barbara Stanny was on a much-needed retreat when she heard a clarion call come out of nowhere, loud and clear. She caught three simple words: Go for greatness. The voice struck like a lightning bolt, wise and commanding. It was a message that would change her work and her life’s path...

Creating Community

Thu, 08/09/2018 - 9:24am
Affirmation: I am open to a deeper understanding of Spirit within all people. We are One. The affirmation for this month is a powerful and deeply transformative practice—if we take it on, if we are truly open to understanding Spirit within all people. This type of work takes us to the edge of our knowing and probably to the edge of our comfort zone, because it invites us to understand all...

Love Thy Neighbor

Tue, 07/31/2018 - 5:20pm
Affirmation: I am a living, loving expression of God, right here and now. The story is told of a farmer whose corn each year earned the winning prize at the state fair. One year, a reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The farmer told the reporter that he shared his prize-winning seed corn with his neighbors. When asked why, the farmer...

Welcoming Grace

Tue, 07/31/2018 - 3:57pm
Affirmation: Grace is an upward pull of the universe, lifting me to the heights of my divine nature. Seeking the Meaning of Grace St. Augustine said: “What is grace? I know until you ask me; when you ask me, I do not know.” If we asked a dozen people their definition of grace, we might uncover a dozen different answers including, “I don’t know.” Perhaps we were raised in a faith...
