Minister’s Message

CELEBRATING UNITY– CELEBRATING LIFE!

Soon we will celebrate 50 years of Unity & Silent Unity in NZ and rejoice together in the wonderful ways that Unity teachings have opened our minds, hearts and souls leading us through the diversity of outer living with strengthened faith and the joy of living.

As we gather, we will each bring not only our outer presence, but our  gift of Inner Light for-

THE CHRIST LIGHT WITHIN—IS A GIFT TO SHARE, FOR WHEREVER WE ARE, GOD IS!

So many people have given their time and talent to serve in Unity and Silent Unity. I give thanks to each and every one for their contribution to Unity and Silent Unity.

  I also look forward to greeting all at our 50 Year Celebration

LIFE IS FOREVER CHANGING—THE PRESENCE OF GOD IS CONSTANT

As we learn to live from these inner truth teachings we also come to accept that change is part of living and growing spiritually. By acknowledging and accepting the truth that we already have within  the resurrecting power we can move forward in life in faith.

 By being willing to let go old conditioning, we become open to  listening from within

listening and trusting, and giving thanks daily with the practice of prayer and meditation,

 we gain insight and greater awareness that we have the choice to go to-

“GOD FIRST IN ALL SITUATIONS”-

 We then respond to the changes and challenges of life from a higher awareness of our true

 nature. Unity teachings show us how the healing power of forgiveness opens our minds and hearts

 to “inner change.”

As we willingly turn within, we experience a “divine appointment” with God, that creates

an inner change of heart” opening us to respond from our true nature—  DIVINE LOVE.

PRAYER IS GOD’S LOVE IN ACTION

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER– THURSDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER   See page 3

You are all invited to be a prayer partners -wherever you are!

 Let us gather together in the Spirit of Oneness to pray, in the Name of Jesus Christ, and rest in the Silence in faith, knowing that as we give thanks to God, our collective prayers of peace, do make a difference for the good of all, and our world. Amen. In loving service,    Rhonda

Dear Unity Members and Newsletter Friends,

At our AGM Sunday 28th May, with the Trust Boards support, Rev. Rhonda shared with Members that she will be officially retiring at the end of 2017 as Minister for Unity in Auckland. Trust Board members are grateful that Rev. Rhonda  continues to serve three days a week in the Office, over viewing Board matters, assisting the Board as we pursue our vision to have an Ordained  or Licensed Unity Minister to serve Unity in Auckland.  Rhonda is assisted in the work of Silent Unity and Daily Word by Moya Finer our Office assistant.

In 2018, Rev. Rhonda will continue as Director of Silent Unity & Daily Word in NZ and serve as a Trust Board Member.

Since the AGM, due to a need to focus on her SEE courses, Linda-Lucy Haines has resigned as a Trust Board member, and also of late, as our weekly Volunteer Sunday Service speaker. We are thankful to Linda-Lucy for her time of serving Unity and continue to support her  SEE study programme, and wish her every success towards becoming a Licensed Unity Teacher . We look forward to a variety of Sunday Speakers and Linda-Lucy’s offer to speak occasionally. Rev. Rhonda will be our Speaker on Sunday 3rd September.

In our plans to expand Unity, there will be an opportunity for Unity Community members to participate in an Expansion Meeting scheduled after the Sunday service Sunday 1st October. We very much value and welcome members input and ideas at all times.

On behalf of the Board Members, we look forward to meeting and greeting many Unity friends as we honour Unity’s 50 years in  New Zealand, and celebrate the new path ahead for Unity in Auckland. In loving service Lawrence Chapman– Chairperson Unity Trust Board.

“UNITY A QUEST FOR TRUTH”

By Eric Butterworth Cost $16.00 + $4.00 postage

“Unity today is dedicated to the open mind, to the continuous quest for Truth. It seeks not to tell you what to think, how to define God, what creeds to accept. Unity seeks only to teach you, how to think, how to pray– so that you can formulate your own definition of God, experience your own communications with God, and find your own distinctly personal revelation of Truth.”

If you are on a spiritual quest for a greater understanding of God and  desire a happy joyous life through practicing practical Christian principles, then this book is for you.
