Greetings Friends,

We are so blessed with Ohio’s four seasons and I’m loving this week of warm autumn weather. The next few weeks we’ll see a definite change as the leaves fall and the cold winds begin to blow.

Unity of Dayton is also going through a season of change… change for the good! Thanks to those who stayed for the Town Hall meeting on September 13th. The overall outcome was the realization that before we could love it or list it, we would need to replace the roof.

Our 30 year old roof has outlived its 20 year life expectancy, so we are stepping into our faith and beginning a capital campaign to “raise a new roof!” The blue “Bill’s Fix-It Fund” envelopes are now available every week for your contributions above and beyond your usual tithes and love offerings. Be looking for some exciting developments from the Capital Campaign team in the coming weeks. Thank you for your generous support as we preserve Unity for the next generation.

Taylor Good and Stowe Daily were here for an exciting Saturday night concert, Sunday service, and Sunday afternoon workshop at the end of September. They are StoweGood and they blessed us in so many ways! Thanks for your contributions toward making this such a heartwarming weekend for all.

On October 11th, we will recognize and honor ten individuals who have decided to make Unity of Dayton their spiritual home. Please join us this Sunday at 11 am to welcome the newest members of our church family.

On October 25th, you are cordially invited to dedication of “Art’s Garden.” To honor the memory of Art Moten, our dear friend and Unity Truth student, we will dedicate the garden that Art so lovingly cared for at Unity. Art’s beloved husband, Mac, placed her angel in the garden earlier this year. Let us take this opportunity to join in prayer and share our favorite memories of Art. We’ll meet at the garden immediately following the 11 am Sunday service.

Please continue to hold Al Smith and his family in your prayers. Al was recently diagnosed with cancer and chose to enter Hospice care on October 6th. We are grateful for the blessing that Al has been to so many of us over the years, and we trust that he is enfolded in the living, loving, Christ Presence as he takes the next steps on his eternal journey.

As we continue the “Ask and It Is Given” lesson series, we are reminded that we are Eternal Beings, expressions of God Source Energy, having a physical life experience. I am grateful to be traveling this path through life with you.

God bless you!

In loving service,

Rev. Cindy
