As I post this message, Thursday, September 8, Unity is celebrating it's 23rd annual World Day of Prayer. Throughout the day, Unity Village is holding a 24 hour prayer vigil. Here in Coeur d’Alene, we are presenting a special prayer service at 6:30 pm where we will read prayers from the World Spiritual Traditions, light candles for Peace for All Peoples of the World, have a procession to the labyrinth and softly read the names of those on our prayer lists. The evening will conclude with a flute blessing by Bob MacDonald. Our Prayer Ministry coordinator, Fran Ray will lead this special sacred service along with Bob. Plan to attend as it will lift your heart and connect you with your Holy Presence and Higher Power.
This Sunday, we explore prayer from Eric Butterworth’s book The Universe Is Calling. Did you know there can be pitfalls to prayer? Yep, there can be. I bet you’ve never considered this question. With the help of Butterworth, we will explore the history of prayer and consider
how we may be playing out traditional worship practices that cause us to pray using wrote prayers that we “hurl” at God. Unity teaches that we have a direct personal relationship to and with God — not the anthropomorphic God in the sky — but a presence within us and around us. Come and learn a different approach to God using the power of affirmative prayer.
Our musical guests are Patsy Cameron and Dale Young, along with Nate Parker on drums and accompanist Gwen Gathercoal.
It is always more fun when you are with us. Together we learn more. Together we are able to transform our lives and create a world that works for all. Unity stands for the betterment of humanity. If you’re looking for healing, you’ll find it here. If you’re looking for harmonious relationships, you’ll find it here. If you’re looking for guidance, you’ll find it here. If you’re looking to develop a deeper relationship with God, you’ll find it here. We teach you how. In Unity we believe there is only God and this God is Good. We not only believe it, we live it.
In loving prayer,
