The Forward-Moving Spirit

A message from Jon West

There is a moment at the beginning of all our Unity board meetings when a board member shares an inspirational reading. Tonight, at our first meeting of 2019, Lisa Bowen did something unusual: she shared something that was written from within our group, by a member of our ministerial team.

The reading was taken from an email sent to us all by Rev. Sherry who was unable to attend that night. I believe we all appreciated what Sherry had to share as it spoke to our mutual efforts and vision as a spiritual community:

I am feeling quite excited about the growth that is happening within Unity – and without - as people begin returning to us, as new ones come, love us and stay, as new talent steps forth in almost all areas, and as we are doing well financially and attendance is increasing. It takes at least five years to build a solid business, and we have not wasted a minute in the last 5 years providing, creating, presenting, evaluating, and opening to the creative process within our spiritual community that has led us in the direction of solidarity and stability.

We also still have a bit of vulnerability, but that is the charm of sincere representations of faith. We have this because we are open to all possibilities, all faiths, all people, and we have faith in all possibilities shown to us by a creative and loving Divine Spirit. As we continue to move into who we are really created to be as a spiritual community, let’s not lose sight of the fact we cannot just rest in the glow of the good that is happening. We need to continue to be proactive, committed to, involved in, and prayerful about our future. Together we can continue to be an inspirational light in a world that needs what we have to offer, more than ever before.

From the heart, love Sherry

Thank you, Sherry. To me, your message not only clarifies who we are as a spiritual community, it also models how we can individually approach this new year: with an appreciation for both the gifts and challenges of the past, and a clear intention to unfold our higher potential, both for ourselves and the world.

May we carry this spirit of love and truth ever forward with each new day.
