Message from the President
Ash Wednesday, February 13, 2013, marked the beginning of the Lenten season. Charles Fillmore co- founder of Unity metaphysically interpreted Lent as a season of spiritual growth. During this time and throughout the year, individuals are encouraged to explore their inner thoughts and release themselves from self-limiting beliefs. Through the daily practice of meditation, denials and affirmative prayer, individuals resurrect their experiences of pain and suffering and are lifted in consciousness.
Similarly, the spring equinox which will commence on March 20, 2013, symbolizes a spiritual time where individuals confront the ‘inner forces” of darkness and light. The transcendence from darkness to illumination characterizes the journey individuals engage as they progress through the stages of self-actualization.
Reflecting, evaluating, releasing and reaching higher are essential aspects of the growth process. UBTS’s new board was voted in by the membership on January 27, 2013. We as leaders who have been entrusted to serve our spiritual community will begin to examine the various aspects of our community’s functioning. We will seek input from our beloved members and friends. As we shine a light together we will uncover and celebrate our successes, release that which is not in alignment with our core values and Unity Principles, and joyously be lifted to our highest good.
Please welcome our new board members and hold them in your daily prayers.
