Weeks 1: Unity Principles to Bless Your Life
1. There is One Presence and One Power, God the Good.
2. I have God’s spark of divinity within me and I am inherently Good.
3. My Mind linked with God Mind creates blessings in my life.
4. Through prayer and meditation, I align myself with God and Good.
5. I live the Truth I know through thought, word and action.
6. Everything is God and is God’s. I use it all with gratitude.
Week 2 & 5: Unity Invocation-by Charles Fillmore modified by Paul Hasselbeck
I AM the presence of Pure Being Emanating the Holy Spirit of Life, Love, and Wisdom.
I AM all that GOD is expressing at the point of me.
As I express Divine Wisdom, All thoughts of mortal limitation have no power over me.
I AM the substance and power of pure Love Bringing into manifestation my world according to divine law.
Week 3: Gandhi Blessing
I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.
Week 4: Peace Statement:
Unity stands for peace in our life time, one life at a time. Unity stands for peace in the presence of conflict; for love in the presence of hatred; for forgiveness in the presence of injury. Unity honors the many names for God, the many paths to God, the many ways to worship God; for there is only one power and presence of God and that God loves each one of us equally. It is therefore the position of Unity to urge all nations, their leaders, and their people to turn to God by whatever name for guidance during these challenging times and pursue peace, not war, for this is what honors the God of all our faith traditions. Unity stands for peace in our lifetime.

Unity focuses on one of our 12 Powers each month. In August we focus on the faculty of Will —The ability to choose, decide, command, lead, determine. The corresponding color is silver, the location is the center of the brain. The disciple is Matthew who represents the decision-making part of the brain. Affirmation: I choose my good based on spiritual understanding.
Giving & Receiving
What is the relationship between giving and receiving? Do spiritual principles of prosperity really work in the REAL world? How can we shift our ideas of scarcity to those of abundance? How can we FEAR NOT when it comes to finances? What role does race consciousness about material acquisitions play in our unhappiness? What can we do about that? Join us as we look at the true nature of the Universe and at the Truth of our Being and our Purpose in this our Earthly Journey. Join our guest speakers, Rosalind Russell and Maria Hoaglund as they share their discoveries with passion!
