Unity partners with Tigerlily Foundation to provide support for young women diagnosed with cancer. In “Breast Cancer Spiritual Support for Young Women,” Mallory Herrmann shares the story of how this partnership came to be—and how it’s helping young women find holistic healing.
Noelle LaCharite freely admits that she’s a “little different than your average bear.” This might be a bit of an understatement considering her successful 20-plus year career in the IT engineering field, coupled with a strong desire to use her admirable skillsets to enhance the Unity movement and spread the message of positive, practical Christianity.
LaCharite, an Alexa evangelist and solutions architect at Amazon in Seattle, is the person behind the new and innovative Unity launch into voice-enabled technology using Alexa-enabled devices such as the Amazon Echo—Amazon’s top-selling home speaker.
We live in a world of light. We are ourselves light. ….
I have only to look … to taste … to feel, I have only to live—to know that the world is a work more wonderful than anything I can imagine it to be, anything I do imagine it to be! The wildest wonderment of all poets, dreamers, inventors, speculators that have ever lived is as nothing compared to the wonderment that is the world. The world is God’s wonderment, infinite intelligence compounding its infinity, the joy of eternity delighting in itself.
… For when I consider humanity, I catch a glimpse of God in whose image we are made.
Listen to life, and you shall hear the voice of life crying: Be!
What shall you be?
To children whose home lives are in turmoil, something as small as a stuffed animal can represent comfort and peace of mind. Often, a simple stuffed bear becomes the only security they can tangibly hold on to. That’s why each child finding shelter at Hope House receives a welcome gift that includes a stuffed toy. Thanks to the Silent Unity® Prayer Bear Ministry, Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village now plays a part in providing that warm welcome.
Silent Unity is collecting new teddy bears to be donated to the women with children at Hope House.
“I am victorious!”
Unity minister Maxine Martin always answers the phone in the same cheery manner. A simple “hello” will not suffice. Her words are a bold statement of her virtues. Her joyful countenance speaks volumes, even as she pauses between thoughts.
Maxine is in love with life, God and Unity. This love, coupled with support from her family, has sustained her since childhood. “Growing up, I remember reading Wee Wisdom® and Daily Word®. The booklets were given to me quite often as a child. I always thought the covers were so beautiful,” Maxine recalled.
A few years ago, Unity minister Helen Wilcox-Evwaraye and a friend were riding along the streets of Lagos in Nigeria when a strange man forced himself into their cab. Almost immediately, Helen began to recite the “Prayer for Protection” in silence. After what seemed like an eternity, the man’s hands began to shake uncontrollably; he shouted for the driver to stop and fled from the taxi.
Helen and her friend arrived safely at their destination, and although they were unsure of what had transpired, one thing became certain to Helen—beholding the Christ within others can work miracles.
