The Real Meaning of Lessons In Truth

Lessons in Truth is a book from H. Emilie Cady.  She was a pioneer in the 19th century for the new thought movement.  And although these words are more than 100 years old, they are still at the forefront of new thought.  You do not need to follow the Unity path in order to receive a blessing from this book.  It is cornerstone of new though.

Our unity licensed teacher, Evan Coleman, provides a short talk about the real meaning of Lessons in Truth.
“Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he will hear thee; And thou shalt pay thy vows, Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; and light shall shine upon thy ways–Job 22:27,28.”

The Glory of Easter

We Are Human and Divine!!

Humankind is both human and divine. Since all of creation began in the Mind of God, we, then, are  first spiritual beings. That spiritual essence entered the realm of the physical, thereby, secondly allowing us to have a human experience. Somewhere in this process, humanity has fallen into a sleep and therefore must awaken to what I refer to as spiritual amnesia; we are in the process of  “re-membering”  our divine identity  and heritage, while working toward the full expression of  our divinity in and through our humanity.

Jesus Our Elder Brother 

Jesus is our Way Shower, our Example, and our Elder Brother. We are to become what he is by doing what he did. This is difficult for many to comprehend because it is such good news. Jesus is the prototype of the new race, demonstrating the full potential within each of us, through Christ. Jesus is the outward expression of the abundance of life that is available to all that “believe on [truly follow] him; greater works than these shall you do  . . .” (John 14:12).

Easter A Celebration of New Hope and Life

Easter is not only the celebration of what happened to Jesus over two thousand years ago, it is also an unfailing promise of new hope and life. Jesus arose triumphantly and victoriously, and as we follow him,  allowing the mind of Christ to develop in us as it did in him, (Philippians 2:5) we too, will rise in triumphant victory. The Bible is the record, our story, of  the development of man’s consciousness in the Mind of God.

Come join us in worship, study, spiritual growth and community at   11 am,  on Sunday mornings at UnitySoutheastChurch in Kansas City,  3421 E. Meyer Blvd,   Kansas City, MO64132

There is Nothing to FEAR

If god be with us, who have we to fear?

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will
strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah, 41.10

Why are we aftraid?  Do you ever have those unknown fears from a strange bump in the night when you are at home alone?  Have you ever went steathily toward the sound with a lump of fear in your throat?   And you are surprised because you only  found that what you feared could be a simple as the thumping of your dogs tail against a door?  Or perhaps the scratching of a branch against a window?

These nameless fears cripple your life.  We forget that God is good all  of the time, and that God is always with us.  That tiny spark of goodness that we carry within us can be trusted to remind us that wherever we are, God is there.  And that all is well.

Let us remember that there is only presence and power active in the universe and in all of our lives.  God the Good Omnipotent.  In those times in which we may be paralyzed with fear, repeat a  prayer such as the “Prayer of Faith”

God is my help in every need, God does my every hunger fee, God walks beside me, guides my way, Through every moment of the day.

I am now wise, I am now true, Patient, Kind and loving too; All things I am, can do and be, Through Christ, the Truth , this in me.

God is my health, I can’t be sick; God is my strength, unfailing quick God is my all, I know no fear, Since God and Love and Truth are here.

God is my wealth, I can’t be poor, God is my true abundance store. His indwelling Presence brings to me, health, happiness, and prosperity.

What Does Unity Teach? There Is Nothing Against Us

There is no reality or power in disease!

Rev. Gloria

Reverend Gloria during a moving service.

In the world of Traditional Christendom, we find certain teachings that are not based  principles and doctrine. Because of some of these teachings, we find fractures within the Christian world. This is nothing new. We find sectarianism early among the Hebrews as a people, and among the early Christian Church. There was always a battle of words which  to define us, those in the good standing in crowd, and them, those that are apart from us.   There is no reality or power in lack! Let us look at the notion of good and evil – If we use for an example the idea of growing a garden and if nothing comes to upset the applecart and all the plants are well and undisturbed by animal critters – we say this is good and beautiful. Now if a gopher enters the garden and begins to eat the roots and kill the plants, we say this is bad. But according to whose perspective is this bad? The gopher is just doing what a gopher does. There is no bad or good thing! There is only GOD!

As we look closely at the early writings of the Old Testament, we find that there was not a being we called the devil. Satan and the devil were terms that were not in the vocabulary of the Hebrews until they returned from their exiles, notably Babylon  Persia . . .

Notice that in the Old Testament there are four references only to Satan as a supernatural being, and these are found in postexilic books (written later than 597 b.c.).

Scriptures that Support

“Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to harm (accuse) him. 2 And the angel of the Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke (reprimand) you, O Satan . . .”    Zechariah 3:1-2a

I Chronicles 21:1 and 2 Samuel 24 – It is said that David is influenced by Satan to take a census of the people contrary to God’s instruction not to number the people.

In Psalms 109:6 we find reference to Satan as the accuser – and the book of Job where Satan is represented as a son of God and as an acceptable part of the heavenly family.

Note that the Hebrews remained faithful to the Shema– Hear O Israel the Lord thy God is One. “In the Old Testament, it was Yahweh who was responsible for evil, so the figure of a devil was not necessary.” Yahweh was considered the originator of Good and evil.(John A. Sanford)

“I am the Lord, and there is none else . . . I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace and create evil; I the Lord do all these things.”  Isaiah 45: 5-7

Also remember the story of King Saul and his periods of depressions – it was said that “an evil spirit from the Lord came upon Saul.”   1 Samuel 19:

So, we see that Satan’s role had to evolve during the writings of the books of the Apocrypha, and through the development of the early Christian Church.

Satan took on a life as an autonomous being with power of his own, standing in opposition to God.

There is only one Presence and one Power in the universe and in my life, God the Good.

One of Israel’s difficulties was to stay pure in their teachings. I believe this is why it was emphasized to keep the people pure rather than mingling with those of foreign blood. It was important that they did not pollute the teaching, and it is just as important today that the student of Truth take a stand. “We cannot serve God and mammon.”  Belief in duality, God and Satan, is lying in bed with FEAR, False Evidence Appearing Real. We build through what is held in our minds.

In looking at polarities, we have made the mistake of viewing the term negative as bad, and this is not true. There are many polarities in God, therefore the negative pole is just as important as the positive for balancing and making a complete circuit. Can we see the mistake we have made in confusing all that we call negative as an unnecessary evil? Examine closely the definitions of Satan, evil, and the devil. This study will provide the basis for our next lesson.
