Jesus Speaks to Simon
Like John, I smile a Cheshire grin when I look at you Simon, and even if you’re not around, and someone mentions your name, a chuckle...

Thomas, Thomas, Thomas … such a reputation you have. Did you know most people see your questioning as a lack of faith? I don’t believe that...

Jesus Speaks to the 12: John, Philip, and Bartholomew

This is Part 2 of a four-part series leading up to Holy Thursday. Each day, three disciples who were present at the Last Supper will be highlighted. It is partially inspired by the Unity teaching of the Twelve Powers.
I look at you, John, and I smile, chuckling inside for just a moment. You have sometimes seemed least like the others in our little group. I know that sounds odd, because after all...

This is Part 1 of a four-part series leading up to Holy Thursday. Each day, three disciples who were present at the Last Supper will be highlighted. It is partially inspired by the Unity teaching of the Twelve Powers.
I am sitting here imagining the Last Supper. It is first-century Palestine, in a room with a simple, wooden, rectangle table where Jesus and 12 disciples are seated. There are no...

Faith: Something Coming Out of Nothing

Sometimes we forget that everything that exists first began as an idea. When we become upset at not getting the assistance we need, we fail to recognize that we cannot see it only because it hasn’t yet appeared out of the invisibility of things. This happens in dramatic detail with the coming of each spring. It is so simple, but it is crucial. When we recognize that what is visible must...

Making Strides in the Community

Carl Chinnery’s humbleness fits him as neatly as the suit and tie he wears at his law firm, Chinnery Evans & Nail, P.C., in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. 
Chinnery is a strong believer in letting his good works speak for themselves, and he walks the talk—literally. When asked by Unity World Headquarters if he and his fellow Rotary members would help fund the renovation of...

Talking in Circles

  1. It is not enough to know the truth. We must put the truth we know into action in order to create a better world.
  2. Prayer and meditation connects us directly to the spiritual essence of all things, enhances our wisdom, and expands our capacity to love.
  3. The quality of our thinking determines the quality of our experience.
  4. We are Spirit expressing as diverse human beings, here and now.
  5. One Spirit is manifesting as All—all manifestation, all power, all intelligence, all love, everywhere present, all the time.

Advent Is Always Arriving

It seems as though we preachers are challenged to come up with new sermons every Sunday. This can be especially tricky during the holidays. How many different ways can we find to talk about Easter, Christmas, and Advent? I had a minister for many years who joked with me that he basically had about 12 sermons, and he just recycled them with different content and in different ways. 
I used to...

In mid-October 2016, I had the privilege of conducting an interview for Unity Leaders Journal with Rev Howard Caesar. Our focus topic was on mission, vision and values at Unity of Houston, Texas, where Howard has served as the senior minister these past thirty-three years.

Once upon a time, there was a little snowflake.
Actually, it wasn’t quite a snowflake …
If you looked at it under a microscope …
There it would be,
The tiniest image of a snowflake...
