Minister’s Message

UNITY WEBSITE NEWSLETTER MARCH-APRIL 2017


          GREETINGS FROM REV. RHONDA 

“IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING” Acts 17:28               The above word reminds us that God is our true source and the Christ Light is our true nature. The 40 days of Lent begins on Wednesday 1st March. Lent reminds us of the importance of devoting specific time to prayer each day.   “Being Still” in prayer, is one of the keys for our Spiritual growth, and outer well– being Living in today’s world is challenging us to answer the call to—“Come Home.” This means listening to the “Still small voice” that is always inviting us to turn within in order to reveal our true nature, and allow it to flow freely through us into our daily life.  The Lenten season invites us to change, it also calls us to choose right mind action, to be willing to let go limiting thoughts and attitudes so that when we affirm

“AS I LET GO AND LET GOD, I AM TRANSFORMED
BY THE RENEWING OF MY MIND! AMEN.”

we affirm this in faith with an awareness that it is the Presence and Power of God resurrecting and aligning our conscious mind, to the Christ Mind– Oneness! By being still in prayer, “A Holy Hush Comes Upon Us.” We begin to awaken to  our true nature, expand  our consciousness, and open ourselves fully to the promise of Easter which  Is – The awakening, acceptance, and expression  of our Christ Nature. A question we may choose to ask ourselves during the Lenten season is -Am I willing to let go all limiting thoughts, false judgments of self and others in order to live as a child of God—Free and Unlimited?

 “UNITY’S WORLDWIDE THEME FOR 2017 IS – THE COURAGE TO IMAGINE! “

Let us each have the courage of our faith in God as Absolute Good, faith in our Christ Nature. Let’s be willing to imagine ourselves right now, in a new light of understanding, and open within our heart to fulfil the promise of Easter which is— “The Truth That Sets Us Free.”
                                This Easter, let us give thanks for the resurrecting power of the Christ within and affirm Yes, I Am the Christ Light!  Amen!

In closing, I wish to express my appreciation to Board members for their dedication to serving Unity, as we pray and move our feet in faith, giving thanks to God for guidance as we imagine new opportunities for Unity in Auckland.
I look forward to seeing you all on 5th March as we welcome back Rev Gary, and introduce his partner Owen, to our community. In Oneness,  Rhonda
