Gratitude

In 1830, Sarah Josepha Hale published a poem called “Mary’s Lamb.” We all know it today as “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Now what in the world could a children’s poem have to do with our month of gratitude? I’m so glad you asked! Ms. Hale was much more than a poet. She...

Going for Joy

One of the more involved activities I have undertaken this year is to realize, for myself, a new consciousness. A new realization of my relationship with God. I’ve already taken over a dozen Unity courses, I read dozens of books, I’ve watched hours and hours of...

New Wineskins

I suppose, if I’m honest, one of the things I like most about Jesus is that he was a rebel. Throughout the Gospels, we learn that Jesus did not always follow the rules. He didn’t fast according to traditional Hebrew law, nor did he cow-tow to those in charge just...
