Denise’s Daring Daydreams – 08/29/2013

Over the last few weeks I have focused on the writings and thoughts of
Charles Fillmore the co-founder of Unity…..or Papa Charlie as many in his
family lovingly spoke of him. I am going to shift my focus for this month
to Mother Myrtle who was a down to earth, inspirational woman. Myrtle’s
leadership provided the spark that led the growth and development of the
Unity Movement, the Unity School of Christianity (now known as Unity
Institute), a 24 hour prayer ministry known as Silent Unity (which responds
to more than 2 million prayer requests each year), and the largest religious
publishing house in the Midwest.

Myrtle was a great teacher through her example. She believed that life was
a “school of experience” and in her own words, “we are drilled until we are
proficient in our work.” I have found over the years that the experience
of being drilled until I am proficient is truly accelerated throughout the
area of leadership. I have also found that especially to be true when you
are speaking of spiritual leadership. Through that type of leadership, it
seems as if the ante is raised to a new height…….that place where you
truly begin to experience “where two or more are gathered.” Thank heavens
several years ago I had an amazing woman who stepped up to be a part of my
two or more…..and to be drilled and drilled and drilled right along side
me – the now Rev. Becky Whitehead, the Senior Minister and Spiritual Leader
of Unity of Omaha.

Becky held many positions of leadership within our congregation along with
being the Board President for several years. It was actually during those
years that we were able to do things that before we had only dreamed of. I
hope you will join us on Sunday morning as we join each other on the stage
and begin to share our experiences of true leadership and what a real
difference it makes when you have a leadership whose energies vibrate at the
same level and allow themselves to be “pulled by the vision.” We promise to
share with you on this Labor Day weekend, our experiences of spiritual
growth that can happen through true labors of love….the true essence of
giving and receiving. Namaste’. Denise



Denise’s Daring Daydreams – 08/22/2013

Did you know that the Holy Spirit fulfills the law? And you say, “the law? …. What law?” And I say to you the law of giving and receiving, sowing and repeating, doing unto others……karma……or whatever else you want to call it.  Said very easily in this way:

 

Divine love – through me – blesses and multiplies – all that I choose to give – and all that I am open to receive!  We live in an abundant universe.  How do I know that fact to be true?  I have tested it.

 

If you were in our service on Sunday you heard me allude to testing or trying out the law.  I have tried it out in my life and found that all the ways I have been blessed are too many to count…like trying to count the hairs on my head or the grains of sand on a beach.  Ridiculously abundant!  Soo abundant that I can’t begin to even put words to it or wrap my mind around it!  All I can really say is WOW!….with outstanding wonder!

 

I know what you are asking – “so how do I sign up for that kind of abundance? Well that has to do with how I engage with life – how I put feet on my prayers – how I put action behind my dreams and move with the flow of life.  My prosperity and abundance grows when I deliberately engage in the law of circulation – giving and receiving.

 

The Holy Spirit is that part of the Holy Trinity that is really me – my expression of spirit…..that breath that was breathed into me when I became a living soul.  From that place of true connection, I step into life fully and authentically as me.  I am blessed and everyone I come in contact feels that flow of energy or divine love.

 

Is your love flowing or is the pipe clogged up!  Join us on Sunday as we take another step forward in the ABC’s of Practical Christianity manifesting and navigating  through our lives.  I am soo excited that our own Ryan Gill will be not only doing special music, but filling in for Dr B who will be in Savannah, TN letting her own love flow through her amazing music and songs.

 

Peace and great love for the remainder of your week.  Rev Denise
