The Year of “I AM”

Dear Friends,

We here at Unity by the Shore are continuing to raise our consciousness, knowing and believing that nothing is impossible!

Every Sunday, I see the Christ in you as you greet one another with such love. And, you are supportive, helping someone who may be in the mist of challenges, assuring them that with God within them… “All IS well.”

Yet, the world is full of uncertainty, and many things seem to be beyond our control. But with every step we here in this Spiritual Community take, God, within, is empowering us to take that step! And we are! 2014 is “the Year of “I AM”. The words “I AM” ARE A HOLY EXPRESSION FOR THE NAME OF GOD – THE HIGHEST ASPECT OF YOURSELF. This year, we explore the highest possibility for our lives by choosing a quality to focus on and express. “I AM” Boundless …. Real …. Courageous ….. Aware …. Adventurous…. Lighthearted….. Outrageous….. Visionary…. Limitless…. Connected….. and Sacred..


The question is: do you believe that?  If not, stick around!

Love, Joy & Peace!

Reverend Joanne

Continued “Resurrection”

Dear Friends!

Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun! The last time we shared with you it was a message on “Resurrection”.

Let us continue with “Resurrection” as we lift ourselves up in abundance! Jesus said “I am come that they may have life and have it abundantly.” By this he meant that we should not settle for a limited understanding of a rich and full life, for “with God, all things are possible.”

Abundance and prosperity don’t come to you. They come THROUGH you. Because thought is creative, your consciousness creates your life experiences. Do you believe that? I do, and with all my heart, soul and mind. For Divine Principles, the law of cause and effect, operate the way they do because everything in the Universe is Energy and It is all Love! All you need to do is to trust that God; Spirit is within you and always guiding you to your highest Good.

But, you need to “walk” through that “door. Patience, Perseverance and Spirit will guide you moment by moment!


May Your Know Love, Joy and Peace

The Spirituality of Mental Health

by Gerald May, MD

Taught by Rev. Joanne

Thursdays from 1-3 pm

May 1 – May 22, 2014


A profound resource for psychology, spiritual direction, and pastoral integration. Renowned author May discusses the role of self-compassion and self-care in mental health. In this new edition, he also adds material on the intersection of psychology and spirituality, with expanded discussions of trust, solitude, and prayer.

“Dr. May reminds us that human beings are not objects to be fixed or improved. We need to quit worrying about who we are, to relax and be our natural selves; to accept our craziness, to find love rather than build it.” —Publishers Weekly

Dear Friends,

As I write this message, I am aware that TOMORROW IS EASTER! The date of Easter, as we all know, is determined by its relationship to the Equinox (the time when daylight seems to be “resurrecting)”. Resurrection of the natural world tells us so much about OUR OWN SPIRITUAL JOURNEY.

We all go through “Winter times” and we all have our own crucifixions. We have times when we go into the “tombs “and the dark “underworld” of our being. All Creation begins in the darkness. In the darkness seeds of a NEW CREATION expand, the sap begins to rise, suddenly, mysteriously, against all odds, we find we are resurrecting! We return to the land of the living. We blossom and we find joy again!

May Your Know Love, Joy and Peace
Rev. Joanne
