Our inspired, expansive theme for 2022!
LOVE is everywhere, and especially where
Unity (oneness) and You are.
 
In keeping with California guidelines, we are now recommending though not requiring mask wearing while indoors.
THE CHURCH OF BEING KIND, NOT HORRIBLE!
with Rev. Jerry Farrell
 
It is very sad that we are at a point where the above title has to be asserted and affirmed. It is such a low bar to aspire to. But politically and spiritually it seems that that is where we are at in our country. This Sunday we once again lay out the pathway that we as Unity people see for ourselves and our nation so as to come to Oneness.

THERE IS "U" AND "I" IN UNITY!
 
Hi dear friends,
Our spiritual center, which we all love, only hums along with the hands and hearts of all of us! Carly Tousley is now our Volunteer Coordinator and she would welcome your interest in being a front greeter, an usher, a camera monitor, or (when we get post service snacks going again) helping in the kitchen. The volunteer positions are on just a once a month basis so the volunteer commitment is minimal but incredibly valuable! Please see Carly after the Sunday Service or call her at 831-588-9350. Or call me and I will put you in touch with each other!
With loving gratitude,
Lezlie
 
 
FROM THE BOARD
The Way of Mastery...Join us!
 
Would you like to have Peace from the top of your head to the tips of your toes, and to have that Peace walk before you wherever you go? 
 
This is the promise from Jesuha (Jesus) in The Way of Mastery, as we learn to uncover our obstructions to the Love that we are. 
 
If you would like to see your life and love expand, and experience this complete Peace that Jesus speaks of, why not join us on Mondays, at either 1:00 pm or 6:45pm. We meet in person at the Unity in the Gold Country Center, and on Zoom. New copies of the three-book volume have arrived in our bookstore.
 
We take turns reading from the text and then discuss each section. Not only do we share the very heartfelt topics with deep and meaningful discussions, but we enjoy each other’s company and have a good time too.
All are welcome!
 
With Love and Peace,
Patricia Plank
UGC Board of Trustees Secretary

DREAM CLASS twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Thursday!

Bring your dream journal or notebook - at least something in which to take notes. I’ll go over the basics of dream work and ways to recall your dreams.

First Quarter Finances Red Alert
 
As your fearless leader it falls to me to bring things to our attention that are necessary from time to time. I obviously want to foster a positive and grateful energy for us all. But I also need to point out that our first quarter financials are troubling. We have been running a consistent deficit each month. I bring this to our attention because to not do so would be negligent on my part.
We have many people who tithe to our community, some who consistently tithe $1,000, $750, $500, $300, $100, and those who contribute smaller amounts each month. My appeal is not so much to those who are tithing but to those who have never considered doing so. We know that the cost of doing business has increased over the past couple of years. I would ask that you consider the amount you are giving, look to see if it has increased in line with the cost of living, and make as big a contribution as you can to ensure our financial health.
As we give, so shall we receive is a spiritual principle that has worked in my life for the last 35 years. I encourage you to discover that too if you haven't already. In gratitude for all that we have already received. Many thanks.
 
Rev. Jerry
THIS IS A SPECIAL OFFERING!
 
AWAKENING WITH ART
 
A simple and transformative process in which you will blend and ignite your physical systems with your Soul frequencies.
Nanci Shanderá, Ph.D.
 
May 21, 2022, 11 a.m. to 3 pm.
Email Nanci with class questions(drnanci@earthspiritcenter.com). Cost: $40 paid to UGC no later than Wednesday, May 18th (deadline extended).
 
ATTENTION Art Class Students
from Nanci Shanderá
Due to shortage of art supplies locally, please don’t buy any supplies for the May 21 art class. I bought everything online so you can borrow or buy from me in class. (You can always bring your own too.)
 
This class is spiritually based and lots of fun! Hope to see you!
BOOKWORMS: here’s your update on our library!
 
If you love books as I do and have been curious about what’s happening in our UGC library, it is being transformed! The process began months ago by sorting, donating duplicates, categorizing by subject (rather than by author), and envisioning a creative and beautiful environment. When finished, you will see various inspiring works of art on the walls and shelves, easy-to-find books you’re looking for, and a cozy and peaceful place to browse, relax, read, and enjoy a cup of your favorite brew. I’ll be letting you know later how to donate books, check out books, and other news. I don’t yet have the date for celebrating and opening our new library, but keep checking this newsletter.
I hope you all will love the new look and operation. It’s been my pleasure to create a wonderful venue for learning and inspiration.
Love & light, Nanci Shanderá

MAKING THE ROUGH PLACES SMOOTH
 
A Ukrainian man hiding in a Mariupol bomb shelter spotted a car with the keys in the ignition. He gathered his family in the car and drove to the relatively safer town of Vinnytsia. While driving, he found a phone number in the glove compartment and called the car’s owner. “I’m sorry, I stole your car. I was saving my family.” The man on the other end of the call replied, “Thank God, don’t worry. I have four cars. I took my family out in my SUV. I refueled my other cars and left them in different places with the keys in and the phone number in the glove compartment. From all four cars I received a call back. Once there’s peace, I hope we’ll see each other. Stay safe!”
 
"I will go before you and make the rough places smooth. I will break the doors of brass in pieces and cut apart the bars of iron.” – Isaiah 45:2
 
Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, I give thanks for the courage, resourcefulness, and sincere sense of unity among all sisters and brothers. I pray that the love that inspires such benevolence touches hearts everywhere and makes compassion the order of the day. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

"Easter Sunday"
with Rev. Jerry Farrell
 
Easter Smeaster!
Religious holidays feel like they come with very arbitrary demands. Good Friday we are supposed to be somewhat subdued. Easter Sunday we are supposed to be ecstatic. What if you aren't feeling it? Join us this Easter Sunday when there will be room for all feelings and doubts. Those who are really feeling it will be holding space for those who aren't- that is how spiritual community works.

FROM THE BOARD
 
The last several years have been challenging for obvious reasons. the past few months even more so due to the atrocities in the Ukraine. It is its own challenge to bear witness to all the inhumanity. The temptation is to turn away. The need to turn away is understandable sometimes when we just don't have the emotional energy to do so. But here is the thing. Just like Mary and the disciples bore witness to Jesus' suffering we are called to bear witness to the suffering in our times. But it is an empowered bearing witness and holding space. If we connect to the divinity in us it becomes to one who is bearing witness, and that is a very different thing. Because the divine as us witnessing the suffering of the world transforms it in a way we may not totally understand. Easter is a time of witnessing the victory of love over all things by the divine. Whenever we can let's make our eyes available for divinity to transform our world. Any day can be Easter to divinize (divine eyes) our viewpoint.

THE SONG OF LIFE
 
Environmental psychologist Eleanor Ratcliffe says that listening to birdsong can lower stress and have positive impacts on mental health. “Birdsong is often a sign that there are no predators around. It's a sign of safety. And way back in our primordial brain, we may recognize it as such, and relax a little.”
 
“Once a Zen master stood up before his students to deliver a sermon. Just as he was about to open his mouth, a bird sang. The master hesitated, then said, ‘The sermon has been delivered.’"
– Joseph Campbell
 
Affirmative prayer: "Infinite Presence, I listen to the song of life, of my heart, resonating with the peace, beauty, and harmony that restores my soul. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

"The Journey to Peace"
with Rev. Jerry Farrell
 
The Bible provides us many mirrors for us to see ourselves in, like the story of Palm Sunday. Did you ever wonder how the crowd went from such adulation to murderous hate in a short week? We live in times not unlike that first Palm Sunday, with lots of polarization happening very quickly. Join us Sunday to see what the reflection in this particular mirror can teach us.

FROM THE BOARD
Rewards of Leaving the Comfort Zone
 
When I was first approached about my willingness to be nominated for the Board of Trustees my first reaction was the feeling of anxiety that often accompanies anything new for me. I retreat into my comfort zone where I feel safe. But because I’ve grown in Unity through classes like Way of Mastery and through the friendships I’ve come to hold dear, I’ve experienced many good things that “staying safe in my comfort zone” would have prevented. So once more I took a leap of faith and said yes. I am so grateful for the new friends, new experiences and yes, even the new challenges that accompany that Yes. I learned new bookkeeping skills including how to make budget reports as well as how to share these reports. I found out how much I enjoyed rediscovering my latent computer skills. The lessons I’m learning seem unending! I can acknowledge my fear and anxiety and also surrender to Spirit and trust the loving community I now am a part of. The rewards have been life changing. I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve.
All with love.

SHOWING UP AS THE GUARDIAN
 
“The hero is in tune with the “love your neighbor” teaching. You see this all the time, people doing selfless things for each other. So, when Jesus says, "Love thy neighbor as thyself," he is saying in effect, "Love thy neighbor because she is yourself."
– Joseph Campbell
 
Affirmative prayer: I give thanks for the hero in all of us, for the selflessness, courage, and sense of connection that makes us our sisters’ and brothers’ keeper. Infinite Presence, today, I show up as the guardian that I am called to be. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

"Finding New Life"
with Rev. Joe Sloan
 
Springtime is a wonderful time to walk with a new spring in our step. The 'greening' God is all around us reminding us that 'behold I make all things new." At this particular time in our lives what ways are we individually and collectively being renewed? Worth thinking about and taking another look together as we head towards Eastertime. I suggest that while Christmas is about Jesus, the Resurrection is about us. We’ll take a closer look at that.

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
 
Wayne Stidham is our Volunteer of the Month for April 2022
 
We don’t see Wayne very often during service, but we absolutely know his presence. Wayne is up in, “The Booth”. He is operating the sound equipment and occasionally the lights for our services. He is also learning the new technology needed for our transition to YouTube Live.  
 
With the exception of a brief interruption during this pandemic, Wayne has been providing his time and talent to UGC for almost four years. He does this from his heart, so that we all may enjoy our spiritual service and the space it provides. Helping to hold our sacred space is important to Wayne as this is in part what attracted Wayne to UGC. He says, “Having this sacred space helps us be our true selves and to be our true selves with other people”. From the Board of Trustees and the entire congregation, Thank you Wayne!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Good Friday
 
Rev. Jerry will be leading a Good Friday service on April 15th, followed by a soup and bread potluck! The service starts at 6:30 pm. The deliciousness starts shortly after 7 pm!
 
 
RESUMPTION OF IN-PERSON CLASSES

FROM THE BOARD
Garden Gifts
 
When the Pandemic hit and lockdown occurred, I knew I needed to have an outlet for my frustration and anxiety. I had noticed that the garden areas around our beloved Church were looking a bit neglected. It came to me that maybe I'd feel better if I spent some time sprucing things up a bit. Well . . . it's been over 2 years now and has brought me more joy than I can say. Wonderful other folks have joined me and that has made it even more fun and rewarding.
If this "speaks" to anyone and you'd like to "adopt" a small area of the garden, please let Lezlie know. There are 5-6 spots that would just love a regular caretaker to keep the weeds under control and trim off dead twigs and flowers. Consider it a "service of maintenance" for our Church. Thank you to those who signed up last Sunday; I will be contacting you soon about what you'd most enjoy doing.
I am so incredibly grateful to have this beauty and abundance of Nature all around me; guess that's why I putz in the garden! May the Blessings of Spring touch each of you in a most positive, healing and joyful way. Namaste

"Making Manifest What is Already Inside"
with Rev. Jerry Farrell
 
How do we manifest? This is one of the big questions that metaphysicians grapple with. People new to Unity often are asking how to manifest financial stability or a new love in their lives. The real answer to these questions might surprise you but be a relief at the same time. Join us this Sunday as we explore true manifestation.

FROM THE BOARD
 
Thank you everyone who participated in our Spring Equinox Celebration!  I feel so blessed to be a part of such an inspiring community. A couple of months ago, Carly, Cathy Lee, Malissa and I got together and talked about having a Spring Equinox Celebration.  We had a grand time planning together! We talked, we laughed, we imagined, and we listened to each other and to Spirit. I am completely convinced that this is the reason everything unfolded into a beautiful celebration.  As a team, we did exactly what unity stands for. It was an amazing experience that I hope our community embraces for future events. We, as a community, have so much to offer each other and our neighbors.  We had at least 11 new people join our event who were able to experience our love and light.
 
It’s a humbling feeling when I get to witness how beautifully our congregation flows in reaching out to each other and lifting each other up. That’s what this celebration showed me so clearly.  Some of us got to feel joy and wonder three times: first, during our planning; next, before and after set up and clean up; and then during the celebration itself.  My heart was so filled with joy sharing and celebrating with each of you.  Thank you!

A SURGE IN BENEVOLENCE
 
During a pandemic, wars, and high inflation, there is some good news for humanity: benevolence is surging globally. So says the United Nations in its World Happiness Report. “There has been a big increase in volunteering, donating to charities, and helping a stranger. Trust in others is rising during these ‘bad times.’ People are working together.”
 
“Your mind shines brightest when you enlighten others; your heart, when you encourage others; your soul, when you elevate others; and your life, when you empower others.” - Matshona Dhliwayo, Canadian author and philosopher
 
Affirmative prayer: Today, with a high awareness of the Divine union of all life, I uphold the lives of others. Benevolence is my essential way of being, the way of God’s life in us all. Thank you, Infinite Presence, forever. Amen.

"Is God Your Double?"

with Rev. Jerry Farrell

 

We supposedly have at least one double somewhere in the world. Did you ever notice your (version of) God holds the same beliefs as you do? Isn’t that amazing! Or maybe not. Shouldn’t our idea of God be something aspirational that we are growing into? Join us this Sunday when we explore the doppelganger God!

FROM THE BOARD

"My Burden is Light"

 

by Angela Apostal

Copyright 2022

 

Not always one to go with the flow.

 

But I’m learning much by letting go.

 

Much comes into play when I’m willing to say there is no blame.

 

And embrace feelings as friends, not yet met.

 

I’ve tread this path for quite awhile.

 

And still find treasures and surprises by the mile.

 

Some make me smile; others I’d like to bury.

 

But I’ve found what I share, I need no longer

carry.

 

My burden can be light without complaint or fright.

 

My willingness is key to my serenity.

 

I keep an open heart as long as I can so I won’t miss making a friend.

 

Or seeing the divine in all faces unlike mine.

 

We are boldly made in awesome delight.

 

So what will it be?

 

What kind of grasp of reality?

 

Our choice is ours to live in heaven or hell.

 

Let’s hope we can live with what we

decree.

 

And find the best in unity.

THE SAINT, THE CHAMPION, IN EVERYONE

 

St. Patrick was born somewhere in Britain or France in the fifth century. At the age of 16, he was captured by Irish pirates and sold into slavery. He escaped years later and entered the Monastery of St. Martin in France. After becoming a cleric, he returned to Ireland where he faced imprisonment or execution, but he survived to preach and teach, to build churches and schools. He became not just a saint, but a patron saint – a benefactor, a champion, a mentor.

 

'May the strength of God pilot us, may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us, may the word of God direct us. Be always ours this day and for evermore." - Saint Patrick.

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, I give thanks for the mentoring spirit in us all. Today I see the champion, the saint, in my brothers and sisters and I celebrate the divine potential in each one. “Top of the morning” to us all, wishing us “all the joy our hearts can hold.” Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

Our Change 4 Change recipient for March and April is Women of Worth, and what an incredible organization they are!

LIVESTREAMING OVERHAUL! IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

 

For several years we have had our own channel on YouTube under our name Unity in the Gold Country, where we have posted our Sunday service videos and some classes like The Enneagram. If you haven't visited the site please google YouTube, and once on the site, type in the search bar "Unity in The Gold country'. That will take you to our channel. Please bookmark the site and hit the subscribe button so you will automatically receive notification of any new content that is posted, like the latest Sunday service. I would encourage you to watch any videos of services that you didn't attend and enjoy the meditations, talks and music. We continually receive positive comments for the quality of our content. Additionally, you can play a part in helping to promote Unity by sharing the links to these videos with family or friends. 

Our first service to be livestreamed on YouTube will be on March 13th. More info will be forthcoming as we get closer to that date. But for now, please subscribe to our channel as outlined above. The best news is, it’s free and it’s much easier than logging into Zoom!

The new Officers for the coming year are: President Marlene Bottenfield; Vice President Kurtis Zumwalt; Secretary Patricia Plank; and Treasurer Ann Somervell. The congregation expressed their gratitude to the four outgoing Trustees, Claire Palmerino, Cathy Lee Knight, Dave Beatty and Yvonne Read. They each received a rosebush from UGC, to honor of their service. Extending their time of service on the BOT are Patricia Plank, Secretary, and Angela Apostal. You are the best!

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH FOR MARCH ~

KIRK SANSOM!

 

Kirk is a life-long Unity member. He started attending the Fair Oaks Unity with his family as a child. He’s been attending Unity in the Gold County as an official member for 6 years.

 

Between his youth and the time he started attending Unity as an adult, Kirk took a brief break and attended a catholic church. He missed the welcoming feeling he got as a youth attending Fair Oaks Unity. And to our good fortune, he found UGC! It was a match made in heaven! He loves the people and friendships he has made while attending Unity in the Gold Country and we are so grateful for that.

 

Kirk has been a member of our choir (he loves to sing), cared for the preschoolers during Sunday Service, taken care of lighting for the service and also run the Powerpoint. He’s looking forward to his work schedule shifting so that he’ll be able help out some more!

 

In Kirk’s own words: “Unity has helped me feel more grounded and brought me closer to my God and knowing that whichever way I choose to acknowledge my higher power I will always be welcome here.”

 

Thank you Kirk for all you do and have done for Unity in the Gold Country! We appreciate you!

FROM THE BOARD

 

Another year, another board (of trustees).

 

They say change is hard. I think it is an opportunity for growth.

 

I am so thankful for Claire’s leadership and her service to our spiritual center. She set us up to succeed. I do want to thank all of the out going Board of Trustees for their service and kindness. This truly is a wonderful spiritual center.

As the pandemic appears to be stabilizing, my sincere hope is that we can revitalize and grow our congregation. I look forward to our new board and Marlene’s leadership to take us to our next best level.

See you at church.

Follow your dreams. They know the way.

Today marks one year since our much loved Greg made his transition. These markers can be so sad as we see time march on even though someone so special to us isn't with us in person anymore.

PRAYERS AND RESOURSES FOR UKRAINE

 

Prayers continue for the people of Ukraine, as well as for those in Russia who are feeling the pain of their country’s transgression. There are ways we can contribute to humanitarian relief efforts. Here is a list of vetted organizations assisting Ukrainians during this crisis.

 

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, I pray great blessings for the people of Ukraine, for responders and defenders, that courage, comfort, and the resources of a caring world are brought to them in such abundance that lives, homes, and institutions are restored. I affirm that there is one life in which we all live and have our being and, as such, I pray that Vladimir Putin’s heart and consciousness are touched by these prayers and by the love of God. I pray for peace upon the land. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

**********************************************************************

Please join me and others all over the world for a global peace prayer led by James Twyman. James is in Poland on the border of Ukraine. The vigil will be held at Auschwitz. Check Facebook - maypeaceprevailonearth, and unify.org this Saturday 5th at 9:00 PST. to join via live stream or just on your own. Every little bit of positive/loving energy counts. It takes more than one man to fight a war. Every soldier and person involved has a heart. Let us send love to ALL involved and open hearts. 

 

Peace,

Yvonne Read

LIVESTREAMING OVERHAUL! IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

 

We have been working patiently to update our media equipment and Livestreaming capabilities over the past year. We have hired an independent contractor, Ira Mandella, who has been part of the media team for the Spiritual Life Center for over twelve years. We are currently getting ready to move off Zoom and onto YouTube and FaceBook. We will be recommending that everyone bookmark us on YouTube and subscribe to our channel "Unity in the Gold Country.' YouTube is a very accessible app available on your cell phones, pads, and home TVs. If you have never been to YouTube, we highly recommend that you do so soon. I must admit that I watch very little tv programming of late and spend most of my online viewing on YouTube. It provides an amazing spectrum of programs, movies, and shorts. The latter is my favorite as I can choose to watch something for time that I have available at any given moment. A big plus is that it categorizes topics such as spirituality, consciousness and introduces the viewer to new ideas or new contributors in any given field. I have found it very stimulating and interesting. All the current spiritual leaders have their content on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

For several years we have had our own channel on YouTube under our name Unity in the Gold Country, where we have posted our Sunday service videos and some classes like The Enneagram. If you haven't visited the site please google YouTube, and once on the site, type in the search bar "Unity in The Gold country'. That will take you to our channel. Please bookmark the site and hit the subscribe button so you will automatically receive notification of any new content that is posted, like the latest Sunday service. I would encourage you to watch any videos of services that you didn't attend and enjoy the meditations, talks and music. We continually receive positive comments for the quality of our content. Additionally, you can play a part in helping to promote Unity by sharing the links to these videos with family or friends. 

Our first service to be livestreamed on YouTube will be on March 13th. More info will be forthcoming as we get closer to that date. But for now, please subscribe to our channel as outlined above. The best news is, it’s free and it’s much easier than logging into Zoom!

EXPLORING HIGHER LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS - PIERCING THE VEIL.

 

In March we offer an 8-week journey into higher realms of consciousness that includes an exploration of psychic skills, increased awareness of discarnate beings such as Spirit Guides or Angels, and increased recognition of the signs and messages of loved ones who have crossed the veil. Such experiences help us to move from a mental belief in such realities to knowing that they are real. Spiritual growth takes many forms and each of us follows the spiritual path as it is illumined before us. Exploring realities that are currently unknown to us instills awe and wonder in this amazing Mystery we call Life.

 

This class will be capped at 16 enrollees so please call Lezlie right away if you want to participate, 530-274-2463.

 

Wednesdays, beginning March 2nd through April 20th, 12 pm - 3 pm, in person in the sanctuary.

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!

 

Kristy Bennett is the February Volunteer of the Month. She’s attended Unity in the Gold Country so long that she doesn’t remember when she started coming. – but it was just before the dance party.

In Kristy’s own words, “I was checking out different churches, but after my first visit to Unity, I knew that Unity in the Gold Country was for me, and I’ve been attending ever since.” 

Kristy is an official member, and she is drawn to Unity because of the talks, Rev. Jerry, and the congregants. She loves working on the alter committee because it feels like a team. She also helps decorate for the holidays and special occasions.

Kristy loves the feeling of connection and the feeling of belonging, of being a part of it all, that she finds at Unity in the Gold Country.

She’s looking forward to the pandemic ending soon so that she can attend in person again. In the meantime, she’ll be checking out the meditation class and Sunday service on Zoom.

Thank you, Kristy, for all you do for Unity. 

We appreciate you!

Often Lent is thought of as a time to give up something. Unity's new booklet, Release and Renew 2022: A Spiritual Practice for Lent, will help you let go of fears, negativity, and doubt as you renew your awareness of the good in and around you.

ALL OF LIFE IS THE EXPRESSION OF THE ONE LIFE

 

Flowers discovered perfectly preserved in globs of amber at the feet of dinosaurs suggest that some flowering plants have remained unchanged for 99 million years. Researchers say that flowers played a key role in shaping life, bringing about the diversification of insects, mammals, and birds.

 

“All of life is the expression of the One Life. All creation is the body of the Infinite, expressing and experiencing Itself in infinitely diverse ways. Creation is where love becomes actualized, and Life becomes more of Itself.” – Petra Weldes, Science of Mind Magazine, November, 2021

 

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, I give thanks for the generative forces at work in my body, in my life. I yield to the evolutionary process of new life coming forward in my affairs, my work, and my relationships. When all is said and done, it’s about love. Blessed be. Thank you, Spirit, forever. Amen.

The Season for Nonviolence is a global grassroots campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the transformative power of nonviolence. The Season was established by Arun Gandhi as a yearly event celebrating the philosophies and lives of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. The Season marks the 64 calendar days between the memorial anniversary of the assassination of Gandhi on January 30 and King on April 4.

 

“Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon. which cuts without wounding and ennobles the one who wields it. It is a sword that heals.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

"Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being." - Mahatma Gandhi

 

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, today I behold true love in the hearts and lives of my friends and my adversaries. I seek today to not make myself right and others wrong, but to see us all as whole, as expressions of the one life of God. Thank you, Spirit, forever, Amen.

Sound Issue Last Sunday

 

First, our apologies for the poor quality of the sound last Sunday. Be assured that we won't have that issue this Sunday or next. We had someone troubleshoot the sound last week and unfortunately a setting got changed that led to feedback on Sunday. We know that the Zoom platform is not ideal for relaying live music at any time and even speech can be challenging also. The real shame was that it was a stellar service and those present felt the high vibration of the energy shared. We encourage you to go to our YouTube site and take a look for yourselves. We have had several setbacks in terms of upgrading our production values due to the recent storm. Appointments had to be cancelled and rescheduled several times. Our goal is to move off Zoom and livestream through YouTube which should improve audio quality greatly. It will also make access much simpler. Please bear with us. We really are trying our best to get this done asap. Trust us that if you are frustrated with the sound we are doubly so. We put a lot of effort into putting together a service and it is so disappointing for us when it doesn't work correctly. The good news is that two new cameras have been installed and are ready to go when we get our volunteers trained. Again, that is another part of the process in our timeline. Everything takes time, just be patient for a bit longer until we can get all the parts in place. Additionally our technician has to come here from Sacramento and he has a full schedule helping other Unity centers, so scheduling is not easy. 

 

In love and flexibility of spirit,

Rev. Jerry

Our inspired, expansive theme for 2022!

REACHING ACROSS THE VEIL

with Rev. Jerry Farrell

 

From time to time, we hear people talk about the veil, sometimes that the veil is thin. What is the veil actually? How is the veil a metaphor for our struggle with our sense of separation? Join us this coming Sunday for ought to be a very interesting talk on how to work with or through the veil.

Rev. Jerry's talk of Sunday, January 16th, DARING TO DREAM AGAIN, was deeply appreciated by all. If you missed it, or would like to listen again, you may access it here. The sound is not optimum, but the message is worth it! And the music and audios are powerful

FROM THE BOARD

The story of the kind Monk.

I want to share with you a story that has stayed with me through the years. I do not know the original source of the story. It goes like this.

A college professor invited a Monk to teach an enrichment lesson to her class. On the appointed day, after all the students were seated and became quiet, the Monk walked in and said not a word.

He went directly to the board and wrote these words.

EVERYONE WANTS TO SAVE THE WORLD, BUT NO ONE WANTS TO

HELP MOM DO THE DISHES. 

We all laughed, and the monk continued.

“Statistically, it’s highly unlikely that any of you will ever have the opportunity to run into a burning orphanage and rescue an infant. But in the smallest gesture of kindness: a warm smile, allowing another to go first, shoveling snow for a neighbor; you have committed an act of immeasurable profundity because, to each of us, our life, is our universe.”

I am convinced that we can change the world just by being a warm, kindhearted

human being. May our smallest acts of kindness save an other’s world in 2022.

With Love,

Cathy Lee Knight BOT

This is my last ebulletin article as I will be leaving the board in February. Thank You for the honor and privilege you provided me as a trusted servant of Unity in the Gold County Spiritual Center. I am forever grateful for your love. Love is Everywhere and Especially where Unity and you are.

“Things are forever changing and I have found that, in these journeys of transition, when endings are done well, beginnings are more peaceful. CHANGE is actually a beautiful acronym: a Chance to Have A New God Experience.” - Rebecca Shinas

 

Affirmative prayer: “Today, I am thankful for the emergence of new God experiences in my life: new encounters, insights, and whole new vistas. I welcome change, and am glad to be on a life-journey of renewal and transformation. My mind is bright, my creative powers are activated, and I am poised for richness. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

NEW MEMBER SUNDAY!

 

We have not been able to have a New Member Ceremony since November 2019 and that is about to change! We have received several New Member applications and we're so eager to welcome you in! New Member Sunday will be February 27th, with the New Member Orientation on Saturday, February 26th. Of course Covid numbers could change this, but we are putting our plan out there with confidence!

CHRISTMAS INNOCENCE

with Rev. Jerry Farrell

 

One of the most most profound messages that Christmas proclaims is the innocence of humanity. We often struggle with our individual sense of innocence, because we know all the secrets about us. Except so does the Divine and it still proclaims our innocence. Join us on a Zoom only service so we can celebrate together our individual and collective innocence.

FROM THE BOARD



Here we are again, a second Christmas under restrictions due to the pandemic. This is not where we had hoped to be. Somewhat like Mary and Joseph ending up in the stable and not at the Inn. But since we have been through it once already, we know the score. We have learned to adjust our expectations, learned patience and resilience. Perhaps we have rediscovered the simple things about Christmas that mean the most to us. The things that give us a glimmer of hope and sooth our nervous system. We might want to be aware of those things and look around us to notice those who are having a challenging time right now. Those who are less resilient. Maybe we can reach out and in gentle ways remind others of how the simple things in life can mean so much. Simple things like a phone call that connects and uplifts, lessening the sense of isolation. Or a shared moment over a cup of coffee or tea. Maybe an email with a fun animal video that brings a smile. What people are looking for right now is connection in their isolation; a sense of dignity and worth in a world that feels like it is forgetting about them; a connection with someone who cares enough to reach out to them. Each of us can be that person who reaches out to provide that lowly stable in place of the Inn.

 

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Rev. Jerry

A prayer of compassion: “Dear God, may I approach other beings with compassion and kindness. May I be aware of the suffering of others. May I be ready to give when someone needs my gifts and be open to receive from others when I am in need. May we always know the shelter of God. May we be at peace.” – Joyce Rupp,Out of the Ordinary

CHRISTMAS WITHIN

 

“Listen to your inner voice; cultivate the good, the pure, the God within you. Do not let your false beliefs keep you in the darkness. The divine spark is within you. Fan it into flame by right thinking, right living, and right doing.” – Charles Fillmore, Atom-Smashing Power of Mind

 

Considering the perilous nature of the present moment, we reckon a merry Christmas is nowhere in sight. All the more reason to have a truly deep one instead. And, that all starts by making ourselves into a manger. Christmas is that point in time when the Light of Heaven contradicts the chaos of Earth. Therefore, let us ferociously contradict the Earth as never before by not merely celebrating Christmas but by becoming it instead. The nativity of Christ is the story of God wanting to get inside humanity. Jesus was the prototype for that experiment. Let us avail ourselves accordingly and be the embodiment of God every single day of our worldly lives. Let us, from this moment forward, and without the slightest hesitation, be Christmas.

Evan Hodkins

 

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Spirit, strike up the band! Today, I practice lowly listening, placing my heart and mind in a divine current of power, love, and wisdom. My understanding is inborn, and I am open and available to be rejuvenated, inspired, and guided. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

We donated many boxes of books to Rev. Frank Castro Wehr for the library at his new church. He sent us pictures of the books in their new home. Loving energy flows everywhere! Thank you especially to Nanci Shandera who spent hours sorting and boxing up the books. Loving gratitude for Nanci, loving good wishes for Rev. Frank!

"THE MYSTICAL, MAGICAL MIND"

The 4th Sunday of Advent

with Rev. Joe Sloan

 

This the fourth in a series of how the body supports and blesses our journey through life towards the joyous return home. This Sunday we honor the Head and it’s Embodying engine, the Mind. As wonderfully amazing as we think the Mind is, it is so much more expansive and all-encompassing than we imagine and give it credit. Have you ever gotten a new cell phone and promised yourself that this time you will really explore all its capabilities? And then we get stuck in the immediate need and fail to use its full potential. Don’t we do that with the Mind. Maybe this lesson will inspire us to think again.

 

Our musician is Kalyani.

FROM THE BOARD



There were times before I was introduced to Unity that I knew there is a God yet I had no understanding. At these times I would try to reach out but I never found a real connection. A lot of the time I still felt alone. It wasn't until I joined Unity that I learned about the myth of separation. I had always believed that I was not a part of God and until I could change my way of thinking about the Universe and my part in it, I would always feel separate.

 

When I came to Unity I was treated with love and understanding, even though I did not understand. The teachings and thinking within the Unity fellowship has had a profound impact on me and completely changed how I see my relationship with the Universe. I understand that we are all one and that I am just one small part of God's light. It brings me joy to know I have such a loving family. 

 

Thank You, Dave

SPIRITUAL EXPLORATION 

 

Recently while on vacation I was able to catch up on listening to some audios that I had been saving. One of them, an interview with author Annie Lamott, had a powerful impact on me. It was all about the need for

'self-care'. She described herself as the 'airline stewardess' for her family of origin which led to little self-care in her life. Perhaps you can identify with that role. If so, this audio and discussion is for you. Give yourself some much needed self-care in this busy time by joining us next Tuesday at 10am.

You, dear friends, provided so generously to our food collection for the Food Bank of Nevada County. Larry Homan hauled 5 loads of food for the month of November. Let's keep our flow of giving nourishment open, as we collect for the Interfaith Food Ministry. We are so grateful for your loving hearts.

CHRISTMAS WITHIN

 

"The more we keep seeing God's love and abundance everywhere, the more we grow Christmas joys." - Myrtle Fillmore

 

“In the beginning angels sang that wonderful message to the whole world, “Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth good will to men.” Now the time is coming and I think we are fast growing toward it when we will express that message at this time and at all times, we will have Christmas year round through giving forth that good will, that peace and that spirit of love which is the very foundation of the Christ whose birth and whose teaching and whose character we are celebrating.” – Charles Fillmore, A Metaphysical Christmas

 

“Christmas has little magic in it when we are just looking backward to worship the child in the manger. Magic is found by looking forward to that day when our own Christ Child may unfold in our lives - a time to look inward to Its presence, right now.” - Eric Butterworth

 

"Considering the perilous nature of the present moment, we reckon a merry Christmas is nowhere in sight. All the more reason to have a truly deep one instead. And, that all starts by making ourselves into a manger. Christmas is that point in time when the Light of Heaven contradicts the chaos of Earth. Therefore, let us ferociously contradict the Earth as never before by not merely celebrating Christmas but by becoming it instead. The nativity of Christ is the story of God wanting to get inside humanity. Jesus was the prototype for that experiment. Let us avail ourselves accordingly and be the embodiment of God every single day of our worldly lives. Let us, from this moment forward, and without the slightest hesitation, be Christmas." - Evan Hodkins

HEARTFELT EXPRESSIONS OF DIVINE LOVE

On this 3rd Sunday of Advent we light our pink candle highlighting our anticipation of experiencing this love anew in our hearts. Join us for the love fest!

FROM THE BOARD

 

A few weeks ago, while washing dishes and looking out the kitchen window, I saw a delivery van pull into the driveway and watched the driver hop out to deliver a box to the porch. As he returned to the van, a bicyclist rushed into the driveway and this fellow was hot with anger. I couldn’t hear anything that was said, but watched as the two men went nose to nose, assuming threatening poses like two bantham roosters. 

 

As best I could, I remained in a neutral state. I surmised that the driver and bicyclist had come to a near miss moments before and the bicyclist did not want to just let it go. I recognized both men were in fear—the bicyclist still shaking from the danger of the near miss and the driver feeling attacked and defensive. I began beaming love from my heart center, affirming the divinity of each man. The angry exchange continued and so did I. Within minutes the situation de-escalated. I could see the men were listening to each other. The gestures stopped and the posturing diminished. Soon the bicyclist rode away and the van driver got into his vehicle and calmly backed out of the drive.

 

I watched all this in wonder but after it was over the doubts streamed in. Could I really believe I had any impact on the situation? Part of me was sure of it. Part of me laughed at the thought. I asked Spirit for a confirmation if I had, indeed, had anything to do with the resolution of the conflict. The confirmation came that afternoon when I came across a Suzanne Giesemann YouTube video titled, Does Radiating Love Make a Difference? In that video she describes an experience in a store when an angry customer began shouting and what happened as she silently beamed love to him. Wow! Check out her video…it’s a great story!

 

Let us bless the world around us by radiating Love everywhere we go. It is a service this world needs! Perhaps it will be the greatest gift we give this season.

SPIRITUAL EXPLORATION 

 

Fresh from his relaxing vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Rev. Jerry returned to host another very interesting Spiritual Exploration session last Tuesday at 10am. It was so interesting we didn't get very far into the material and consequentially the presentation continues next Tuesday. Please join us if you can. Does your nervous system feel like it has been cranked up to high doh? Has living in the time of pandemic gotten really gotten old and worn you down? Then join us for a state of the art audio presentation on the three modes of our nervous system and how to regulate it a little better with this helpful information. This is such good information and promotes great conversation as well!

Join us for week 2, December 14th!

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!

 

Our December Volunteer of the Month is Catherine Arbini. If you’ve stopped in at the center during the week, you have probably seen her smiling face and dirt-covered hands planting flowers somewhere. 

Catherine has been attending UGC for four years now and is an official member. Her desire to find others who have beliefs similar to her own is what drew her to Unity. She was yearning to grow spiritually, to Feel Spirit within.

Unity feels like home to her. She enjoys the people, the classes, the services, pretty much everything!

Wherever there are flowers at Unity, you can pretty much assume Catherine is close by. It’s almost like every print of her footstep turns into a blooming flower. She also makes delicious cookies for after the service. In addition, Catherine has also sung in our choir. In fact, if you ever feel just a bit down sometime when you are at a Sunday service, all you have to do is look at Catherine when she’s singing. It’s like Spirit takes over and joy flows through her. Her entire being glows.

Catherine says that Unity has changed her life by constantly encouraging her to Open her Heart, and affirm the belief that she is loved and deserving of happiness and peace in her life.

You are loved, deserving, and appreciated!

Thank you for all you do, Catherine.

A Nigerian musician, Davido, asked his friends and fans on Twitter to send him money for his birthday. Then he surprised them by donating the money to orphanages across Africa. He raised $485,000 and added $120,000 of his own money. Davido plans to raise funds every year for his birthday. “I hope my friends, fans, and the public will continue this with me.”

 

“The ripple effect can extend out to two and three degrees of separation. In other words, if you are kind and compassionate, your friends, your friends' friends', and even your friends' friends' friends' are more likely to be kind and compassionate.” - Nicholas Christakis, The Book of Joy

 

Affirmative prayer: I am in rhythm with the Divine Creator and, because there is only one Life, everyone in my orbit is also in sync with this Infinite Love-Intelligence. That being so, the prayers, giving, and compassionate acts of each of us is magnified by our collective energy. Life is good. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

BIRTHING OUR LIVES FROM THE WOMB OF PEACE

The 2nd Sunday of Advent

with Rev. Jerry Farrell

 

All of the biblical characters are meant to be archetypes for us to identify with. The pregnant Mary asks us to consider what we are birthing. This Sunday we focus on the mystical womb that each one of us is, and we ponder the possibilities of what the divine wishes to give birth to in us individually and collectively.

 

 

Our musician is Kellie Garmire.

FROM THE BOARD

 

The Invitation

 

Christmas time is when I recall Micky most clearly. She had such a gift for extending Love and Light. But that isn’t all. Micky had the amazing and rare gift of extending an actual invitation. Usually, about two weeks before Christmas, she would come and find me. Then she would look into my eyes expectantly and ask if I would come to her Christmas party. The she asked was delightful. She would say slowly in her warm Micky way, “Cathy Lee, I want you to come to my Christmas party”. She would emphasize YOU. Mickey did this for many years. I declined her invitation each time because it was Christmas time, and I was the only piano player available in the small fishing village of San Felipe. They did not have an organization like Music in the Mountains to see to the music instruction of the children. Nevertheless, each Christmas Micky would still find me and extend a personal invitation to her party. She did not take it personally or feel rejected that I could not attend. Micky would continue to invite me every year. Years passed and she grew even older and became sick, yet still she came and found me and asked expectantly, “Cathy Lee, will you come to my Christmas party?” “Yes”, I said, “yes”, and I did. I went to her home. Micky opened the door wide and when I stepped inside, I was immediately flooded with gratitude for all her love and light, and especially her invitation each year at Christmas time.

 

Good, beautiful, and true,

Cathy Lee

SPIRITUAL EXPLORATION 

 

Fresh from his relaxing vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Rev. Jerry returns to host another very interesting Spiritual Exploration session this Tuesday at 10am. Does your nervous system feel like it has been cranked up to high doh? Has living in the time of pandemic gotten really gotten old and worn you down? Then join us for a state of the art audio presentation on the three modes of our nervous system and how to regulate it a little better with this helpful information. 

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!

 

Our December Volunteer of the Month is Catherine Arbini. If you’ve stopped in at the center during the week, you have probably seen her smiling face and dirt-covered hands planting flowers somewhere. 

Catherine has been attending UGC for four years now and is an official member. Her desire to find others who have beliefs similar to her own is what drew her to Unity. She was yearning to grow spiritually, to Feel Spirit within.

Unity feels like home to her. She enjoys the people, the classes, the services, pretty much everything!

Wherever there are flowers at Unity, you can pretty much assume Catherine is close by. It’s almost like every print of her footstep turns into a blooming flower. She also makes delicious cookies for after the service. In addition, Catherine has also sung in our choir. In fact, if you ever feel just a bit down sometime when you are at a Sunday service, all you have to do is look at Catherine when she’s singing. It’s like Spirit takes over and joy flows through her. Her entire being glows.

Catherine says that Unity has changed her life by constantly encouraging her to Open her Heart, and affirm the belief that she is loved and deserving of happiness and peace in her life.

You are loved, deserving, and appreciated!

Thank you for all you do, Catherine.

You, dear friends, provided so generously to our food collection for the Food Bank of Nevada County. Larry Homan hauled 5 loads of food for the month of November.

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is spawning in an explosion of new life and color as the natural wonder recovers from life-threatening coral bleaching caused by warming sea temperatures. “Seeing the reef’s recovery is a demonstration that its ecological functions are strong,” said Marine scientist Gareth Phillips. “The reef has gone through its own troubles like we all have, but it can still respond – and that gives us hope.”

 

“When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways: either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength.”

- the Dalai Lama

 

Affirmative prayer: Infinite Presence, today, I find the resolve and strength that puts me on a path of a great healing. By my faith, thoughts, and prayers, I adopt an energizing consciousness that restores body and soul. I pray this for myself and for other souls on this journey. This prayer wraps us all in love and empowerment, and it is answered before I utter it. Thank you, God, forever. Amen.

How do you uncover gratitude during the grieving process? Grief is a universal experience, and we will each suffer the loss of loved ones. However, we may not always know how to process it.

During this two-hour conversation, you’ll hear from authors, ministers, and teachers about their own experiences of grief and how they embraced the gift and even found humor in the grieving process.

This special event is Thursday, December 9, 2021, at 7 p.m. (CT).

Register on Eventbrite and invite a friend to join you.

We hope to see you there.

Blessings,

Your Friends at Unity Worldwide Ministries
