On Sunday, August 3, we will continue our five-part Sunday talk series at Unity of Fairfax by examining the fourth principle:  Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life. (This is a version languaged for children and teens.)

2 and 3

 This Sunday, July 27 will be the 3rd installment of our 5-part talk series based on the book "The Five Principles" by Rev. Ellen Debenport.  Wow!  I'm having my own internal Unity revival!

And - double wow - I'm facilitating the "Keys to the Kingdom" class on Tuesday nights.  We just had our 3rd of 7 sessions on Tuesday night.

Suffice it to say, my mind and heart are filled to the brim with Truth principles and the desire to share them.

Open to New Experiences

Starting on Sunday, July 13, I will be presenting a 5-part talk series based on the book "The Five Principles" by Unity minister Rev. Ellen Debenport.  Rev. Ellen left Unity of Fairfax several years ago to go to Unity ministerial school.  What's really exciting is that Rev. Ellen herself will present the last of the talk series on August 10.  Be sure to be there!

UWM Today and Tomorrow

 I'm writing from the Annual Unity People's Convention at Overland Park, Kansas.  This is the once-a-year gathering of Unity Ministers, Licensed Unity Teachers, Spiritual Leaders and lay persons active in the Unity Movement.  And it has been a monumental experience.


 I've found in my years in ministry that there is great value in offering a Unity perspective on traditional religious observances.  An example is how at Easter we focus on the passion/crucifixion/resurrection as a model for our lives in the here and now, rather than fixating on the worn out mantra "Jesus died for your sins."

Memorial Day

On Sunday, May 25 Unity of Fairfax commemorated Memorial Day with a very special service in which our veterans played key roles.  You can watch a montage of the 9:00 a.m. service in our Video Gallery by clicking here or clicking the Video Gallery icon on the homepage.  Thanks to Steve Marcom for creating the video.  In fact, thanks go to Steve Marcom and Midd Hunt for the videos available on our website!

Mother's Day

 It's Wednesday night, May 7 and I've just finished packing.  Tomorrow I'm flying to Indiana to spend Mother's Day weekend with my parents.  It's the first time I've spent Mother's Day with my mom since 2000.  I'm eager to see not only my parents, but my other family members in Indiana.  It'll be especially wonderful to meet my new grand-niece - my niece's newly born daughter.
