Even though it’s only late winter, the daffodils in my front yard are ready to bloom! When the sun first warms the ground, the early spring flowers break through. The weather turns cold again, but those flowers stand strong even under snow and ice.
I’m reminded of the boundless energy of Spirit ready to spring forth in our lives. Like the sun, Spirit warms us and invites us to grow. Even though we don’t feel fully ready for the changes that come our way, the life and light of God in us gives us strength to stand strong through the difficult times. And when the time is right, we blossom!
Whether you are feeling like you’re buried under, or ready to push through to new growth, the spiritual principles and practices you learn at Unity will give you the strength and courage to transform and rise above the situation. That’s what kept me coming back to Unity year after year. When I faced a challenge, I had support from like-minded friends, along with tried and true spiritual tools for building a higher consciousness. I learned to grow through my challenges!
This year we’re getting back to basics at Unity. Our Sunday lessons will help you rediscover the Truth of who you are and what you’ve come here to be. In March, Rev. Sue will be teaching a five week class based on H. Emilie Cady’s book, Lessons in Truth. If you ever wanted to know more about Unity’s foundational teachings, this is the class to attend! In May, I’ll be facilitating a class about Unity’s approach to Metaphysical Interpretation. When you’re ready to push through the hard times, stand strong under adverse conditions, and blossom to your fullest potential, Unity teachings are here to support you.
Though the world around us may seem filled with turmoil, we turn to the words of Emmet Fox. “Stop thinking about the difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God instead.” Though the cold winds of winter still blow, we know spring is coming. Spirit is springing forth in you, in me, and in our nation. With our faith in God’s presence and power in our lives, we stand stronger together. My friends, now more than ever, this is a time for Unity.
You are in my heart and in my prayers.
My love to you,
Our prosperity affirmation:
God is the Source of Unity of Dayton’s limitless supply.
