Finding Yourself In Transition - Sunday June 25th, 2017
This coming Sunday. I get to share one of my ... Read More favorite Unity Books, Finding Yourself In Transition by Rev Robert Brumet. Robert was one of my teachers in the seminary.
This is a book everyone should have in their library because the transition is a part of life. With every transition, I have faced in the last almost 20 years I have referred to this book.

Displaying Courage in Uncertain Times - Sunday June 11th, 2017
- Displaying Courage in Uncertain Times -
It seems ... Read More wherever I have turned during the election last year as well as what people are experiencing right now, is a palpable sense of heightened anxiety and fear. I have had these feelings myself.
When we get to a place of high anxiety and fear it can be an endless mental loop of analysis paralysis. This of course, has a detrimental effect on our inner and outer reality. What direction we take during these times will be based, like it always is, on our consciousness and our faith.
As a community, I believe that Unity In Marin is at a crossroads. It's a time of enormous opportunity but also a time of great potential change. I look forward to sharing more with you on Sunday.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. - Nelson Mandela

P.S. Remember we have a Town Hall meeting after 2nd service where will be taking a vote on an important topic. Whereas only members get to vote all are welcome. I encourage everyone to attend.

On June 4th, Rev. Pat Palmer will be speaking ... Read More about “Stepping Up” at the 11:15 service. Just as the children in the first service are being celebrated for stepping up to the next class, we too have the opportunity to step up - every day - and our life will celebrate us as we do!

G.O.D. Guaranteed Overnight Delivery - Sunday May 28th, 2017
G.O.D Guaranteed Overnight Delivery
How often have ... Read More we desired delivery from challenges in life? When we don't see the results, according to our timeline, we may tend to give up and blame God.
What if we realized that true changes, in our state of happiness, is not about waiting for an outer intervention but facilitating an inner transformation? Furthermore, what if we then realized we were in the driver’s seat and it’s up to us to adjust our thoughts, feelings, attitudes and perceptions. When we do so, this brings about the delivery and transformation we seek!
Join me Sunday as I talk about how we can lay hold of our GOD given powers to deliver us from any challenge!

Easter - Sunday April 16th, 2017
Easter Sunday
This Sunday I will be focusing the ... Read More Easter Story. This is a story of resurrection. But what has to happen to have a resurrection is to die to something first. This can be experienced without losing our physical life. How often have we died to something old and saw something new be born? Letting go of, jobs, careers, homes, relationships, outdated concepts of who we are.
Some changes come easy and some come hard. What’s on the other side of these changes is a journey. The disciples who were closest to Jesus were bereft when he was killed on the cross and buried in the tomb. How many of their thoughts dreams and hopes had they attached to Jesus the man? They were entombed with Jesus. Many disciples actually saw Jesus after he was resurrected. I will talk about one such incident on Sunday.
I look forward to sharing this with you!

The Placebo Effect - Sunday March 19th, 2017
When I was a child I remember going to the Doctors ... Read More office. Back then the odor of the place was for me a uniquely antiseptic smell. I associated that place and that smell as a place where healing takes place. More often than not, as soon as I arrived, I would feel better without receiving any treatment. In fact, I recall having to do a little acting for the Doctor to replay the symptoms I had at home. If I was healed before seeing the doctor what was really happening?
Just as our thoughts can make us ill they can also help us heal. “The mind is our most potent weapon in the battle for health” says Lyn Freeman a researcher of mind body therapies for chronic diseases. “It can be both slayer and healer.”
I invite you to join me as we explore the topic of The Placebo Effect.

My greatest joy as a youth, was to ... Read More go fishing. I would spend countless hours sitting on my tackle box watching the tip of my fishing poles for signs that there was a nibble on the other end. When there was, I would take up the slack, wait for the tell tale feeling, that the bait has been taken. Only then I would set the hook and reel in the fish. Taking it out of the water in a net. Little did I know that the lessons learned as a fisherman would serve me so well in understanding the Inner life and the Inner-net.

Friends, Our Family of Choice - Sunday February 5th, 2017
In February, the focus will be on Relationships, ... Read More Friends, lovers and family.
This Sundays talk title: “Friends, Our Family of Choice.”
I heard this said many times over the years. Is it true? Personally, I have found that relatives may be friends but friends may not be relatives.
“One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.”
- Euripedes 480-406B.C.
With whom are we friends? Are they people who just think like we do? Are we truly our own best friend? Would we describe God as a friend or an acquaintance? How many friends have we had over the years that we are no longer friends with? Some end because we move on from a job or relocate. Some endure regardless of location.
Sometimes there is a falling out. Sometimes it gets repaired. Sometimes it doesn't. I believe that friends come into our lives for a reason a season or a lifetime. I invite you to join me on Sunday as we begin this February series on Relationships, Friends, Lovers and Family.

Last week I talked about integrating a SOUL-ution to our thinking. This is about lettiing our spiritual self be in charge this year and to give our Ego the year off! This is an awareness practice. I invited us to note when the Ego wants to run the show. Then we consciously shift to allowing our higher self our Spiritual self to be in charge.
How do we make this shift after we note the Ego reaction?
