Greetings Friends,

SmileIf you attended our Sacred Healing Retreat on March 13th, you know how wonderful and successful it was! Our deepest gratitude to Victoria Haren, Pamela Davis, Craig and Shirls Hall, Steve and Amy Leigh, Ann Smith, Rev. Sue Bryan, and the other facilitators who created the sacred space for healing. More than thirty-five of you enjoyed the benefits of this healing energy. Be looking for more healing opportunities at Unity in the near future.

Along those lines, I’m delighted to share that Dr. Garland Landrith, a gifted speaker and researcher who contributed to the movie What the Bleep Do We Know? will be joining us on April 17, 18, and 19th. Dr. Landrith teaches “tapping” on body energies to enhance the power of their thoughts. Tapping, combined with HeartMath and Ho’oponopono, lets you access the Divine Flow and create the life of your dreams. It sounds complicated, but it’s really quite effective! You are not going want to miss this opportunity. For more information, go to Dr. Garland Landrith at Unity of Dayton.

Attention all Edwene Gaines fans! This month we’re beginning our Spring lesson series based upon her book, The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance. I’m pleased to be sharing the powerful spiritual practices she teaches for true prosperity in every aspect of our lives. I hope you’ll join us this Sunday!

Regarding the repositioning of our stained glass windows… the outcome of our recent Board meeting is that the windows will be placed back into the front wall of the Sanctuary for a trial period. Steps will be taken to reduce glare, and we will accept feedback and reevaluate in one year before taking further action. Our deepest gratitude to all who contributed to the conversation at our March Annual Business Meeting.

If I may, for a moment, change hats and speak about recent trends in our finances… there is good news and not so good news. Our Sunday offerings have decreased somewhat over the past few months. The good news is that our expenses have also decreased, but not enough to balance out the loss. This month, for the first time in the past few years, we’ve needed to take money from savings to pay expenses. Please join me in affirming the Truth we know about our prosperity:

God is the Source of Unity of Dayton’s limitless supply. As the Spirit of God works in, through, and as me, I gratefully receive and generously give. I live in appreciation and am prospered in all my ways.
Thank you God!

One way you can help is to participate in our Silent Auction. We now have $12,691.00 in Bill’s Fix-It Fund. We’re planning to add to that total with our first Silent Auction on May 1st. Ron and Nancy Brown, Mary Cupples, and Donna Baker have been working to make this a win-win fundraiser for everyone! There are pictures of the first ten items for auction on our bulletin board and bidding begins on Sunday, April 27th. Check out the items and be prepared to make your best bid. All proceeds go to the roof fund. Please call the church office (233-7516) for more information.

Thank you for adding your consciousness of Light and Love to our special church family. You ARE Unity of Dayton.

In loving service,
Rev. Cindy
