Letting Go of Concern in the Midst of Change

Letting Go of Concern in the Midst of Change

Affirmation: I let go of any concern and allow good to unfold in my life.


This article is not a recitation about a new door that opened in my life or what a joy it is to recount the tremendous success I found on the other side. This article is being written about the time in between, which is exactly where I am as I write.

Last year, I realized after 12-plus years that it was time for me to move on from my active role as senior minister of my Unity church.

I loved the role, the people, and the community, but I knew it was time to step into the unknown—the field of all possibilities.

Honoring Memories

Honoring Memories

Affirmation: We are now and forevermore one in the love of God.


Memories are as unique as we are. They are the cumulative echo of our life experiences. However, it is important to recognize that as an echo, our memories are not the actuality of our lives.

Memory helps make us who we are. If we couldn’t recall the who, what, where, when, and why of our everyday lives, we would not be able to learn new information, form lasting relationships, or even function in most daily situations.

Creating Community

Creating Community

Affirmation: I am open to a deeper understanding of Spirit within all people. We are One.


The affirmation for this month is a powerful and deeply transformative practice—if we take it on, if we are truly open to understanding Spirit within all people.

This type of work takes us to the edge of our knowing and probably to the edge of our comfort zone, because it invites us to understand all people, which would include those who think differently from ourselves, those with whom we don’t agree.

Love Thy Neighbor

Love Thy Neighbor

Affirmation: I am a living, loving expression of God, right here and now.


The story is told of a farmer whose corn each year earned the winning prize at the state fair. One year, a reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The farmer told the reporter that he shared his prize-winning seed corn with his neighbors.

When asked why, the farmer explained: “The wind picks up the pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If the neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

Welcoming Grace

Affirmation: Grace is an upward pull of the universe, lifting me to the heights of my divine nature.


Seeking the Meaning of Grace

St. Augustine said: “What is grace? I know until you ask me; when you ask me, I do not know.” If we asked a dozen people their definition of grace, we might uncover a dozen different answers including, “I don’t know.”
