Whatspiritual principles are most important to you? Which Universal laws have madethe most difference on your inner journey? Have you taken time lately to accessand appreciate the truths that are most meaningful to you? Are you aware of howyou are using these truths in the day-to-day of life? When we do such importantself-assessments, it shouldn't be for the purpose of self-criticism orjudgment, but rather to become even more aware of the spiritual path we walk.This Sunday is about Unity's five principles with an emphasis on the fifth:"Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are notenough. A person must also live the truth that she or he knows." FavoriteAthens musicians John Miley (guitar) and Dan Roth (keyboards) perform.

What if there was a free, easily accessible "magic elixir" that offered immediate relief for any issue, problem, or difficulty one had? What if it had no negative side effects, could be used anywhere at any time, and required no complex training, practice? On top of that, what if it tasted good? Would you drink it? This magic elixir is meditation, the "Ancient Wisdom" practice that has gained some modern slants. With all its benefits, doesn't it seem a bit strange that we"forget" to do it, put it off, don't honor its value? Are you accessing all the powerful, personal (and no need for a smart phone)"apps" of meditation? Whether you are new to the practice or a seasoned meditator, consider listening in as we think about and play with the power of meditation. Wonderful music by singer/ songwriter Jennifer Ferren.

Universal Truth: "When we commit, everything falls into place." Do you agree?How about this principle: "Our commitment attracts what will be needed for the positive results to appear." Yes? Always? If not always, why not? Are you receiving what you "don't want" even though you feel you're focused, committed on what you do want? There's a fable, a simple tale about a boy and his heart's desire that Bronte will share this Sunday. She'll show how it echoes and exemplifies the truth of these principles and other Unity and New Thought teachings. We'll take a look at the "flow of opportunity" and the "Benevolent Source of All." We hope you enjoy this message plus the fabulous music of our first-time musical guest, Eddie Watkins, Jr. For more info on Eddie or to order his music, go to www.EddieWatkinsJr.com
During July we have explored ways of becoming more open to receiving our good, our blessings. We've worked on releasing fear, judgment & unforgiveness. We have sent out love & blessings to our world. We have thought about seeing through "new eyes" and hearing with "new ears." This Sunday we wrap up the month by putting all those ideas together with the intention of increasing and deepening our spiritual understanding of the Divine at work in our lives -- in us and through us. We move forward with heightened awareness -- activating timeless principles and new truths to create the life we desire. We advance our journey with an expectancy of a continued beautiful unfolding of our lives.
What are you listening to? What are you hearing? Is it the dissonance of "the world" or is it the harmony? Is everything mixed together where even the melodious morphs into cacophony? How can we hear that which soothes, uplifts, empowers, encourages, balances us when there is "noise" yammering for our attention? How can we turn down the discordance and turn up that which pleases us? On this Sunday's podcast Rev. Bronte covers some ways to live, think, and meditate our way into the kind of harmony that outweighs "reality" and blesses our ears and our lives. Music from singer/songwriter Cynthia Hart is from her her new album, "I Remember: The Music of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mother Earth." (See CynthiaHartSongs.com for more info.)
How can we find "new ways" at looking at life? Is it our eyes and/or other senses that are doing the looking? Is it our minds? Our past patterns? Would it help if we were able to "blur" things a bit, like in the photography process called bokeh, where the background looks softer and the subject, or what we wish to focus on, appears sharper, clearer, more defined? And how does that relate to spiritual living? How does that connect to "walking in this world"?
Because of recent events in our world and in the United States, our message this Sunday, "Spiritual Understanding,"now includes a segment of Ho'oponopono, the ancient Hawaiian practice of"setting things right." For when we say, "I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you," it helps us remember our unity with all and helps us remember that peace, love, forgiveness, understanding, and compassion begin within us, individually. We now extend these blessings across our country and out into our world. Opening song "All is Well," written by Karen Drucker and performed by Dixie Smith. Chant, "O Great Spirit," performed by On Wings of Song with Robert Gass.
The Universe is Pouring Out Blessings... Are You Ready to Receive Them?
As we move from June's spiritual gift of "Imagination" into July's spiritual power of"Understanding," we delve into ways to increase our understanding of Unity principles, life, and the spiritual practices that bring us peace,balance, alignment and awareness of Spirit. Sometimes we block our good by our thoughts, words, attitudes, and reactions. As we get into a receptive, appreciate mode,we are able to receive all the blessings the Universe would love for us to receive. Thank you for joining us in Spirit!

In this podcast, given at the halfway point of the year, you'll have an opportunity to reflect on what you've wanted to create in 2016 and how to move forward with even more imagination and enthusiasm into the second half of the year. What do you want now? Next? Ongoing? How can we clarify what we want? Rev. Bronte demonstrates how to "look for the good" and how to use the five main Unity principles in the face of troubling world events, including the recent shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
