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
