BEING THE LIGHT 2020 TALK SERIES
with Rev. Jerry
 
Special Sunday Service May 17, 2020!
 
This Sunday we are going to share a unique experience that I think you will really appreciate. Imagine if you had an awakening experience and afterward you were told "Tell the Truth about Jesus". How might you react? On Sunday I invite you to watch a recording of a play that is a distillation of what was revealed to one man named Leonard, in an effort to set the record straight about the life of Jesus, his teaching and the real reason he came to earth.  
 The words of Jesus can be viewed from an enlightened perspective that is particularly relevant to those seeking to awaken to a higher level of consciousness. This film portrays Jesus as a teacher of Awakening and a Revealer of The Way.
 
The message of this film is inspiring, enlightening, and liberating and will support you in your own awakening. It is not about bringing you to Jesus, or to any religion. It is about you, coming home to the truth of who you are.
In the play the time is now and Jesus has returned 2,000 years since his death upon the cross. He has much to share with us about his life and death, and how his teaching has been misunderstood and misused. 
The returned Jesus shows us a way out of separation and conflict and reveals the Oneness at the very heart of all paths and traditions. This film will inspire, enlighten, and delight you.

FROM THE BOARD
 
Hello Friends,
 
Way back in January, we distributed a comprehensive survey to the congregation and by early February we had 77 responses. This was a great return rate! The survey contained three sections: About You, Your Experiences, and Your Feedback and Ideas. The information gathered in the survey has been compiled into a formal report and is available for your reading pleasure. You can find a link to the report in the It’s Our Anniversary section of the UGC website (www.unitygold.us). The Board of Trustees plans to devote part of their annual retreat to reviewing the report and looking at the individual comments generated by the survey. We will use the survey results to inform our thinking as we plan for our future.
 
Thank you to all who participated in the survey and to those who contributed to the writing of the report.
 
Blessings,
Claire Palmerino
BOT President

UTAH'S PLACE
 
Within our community, Utah's Place is so vital to the well being of the homeless population. We want to continue to support them financially while we cannot provide and serve monthly dinners. As you are able, we invite you to send a check to UGC with a Utah's Place notation. We will forward all funds collected monthly to help Utah's Place help others.
 
CHANGE FOR CHANGE
 
Our Change for Change recipient for May and June is Hospice of the Foothills. Hospice of the Foothills provides compassionate end-of-life support for patients, families and the community. Their heart centered work is invaluable to all who need their services. We invite you to send a check to UGC with an HOF notation, or literally drop your change off here at UGC.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
WALL OF REMEMBRANCE
 
We have placed a focus of remembrance in our sanctuary. This honors and will continue to honor those who've passed away (or who may while we're in this experience) for whom we can't hold their Celebration of Life as we normally would. We're holding, representing and giving love and communion at every opportunity.

We have extended the distance healing opportunities into May. The Healers in Unity group has organized a wonderful array of distance healing opportunities.

We have simplified the process of making an appointment with a practitioner. Simply call one of the practitioners listed below for an appointment. Some practitioners may need to limit the number of distance healing sessions offered per month, but it is likely you will be able to schedule the one of your choice.

2. What is your main concern as you think about life in the next few months and beyond?
 
3. How likely are you to return to Sunday service in person when we open up our doors again, based on State, County and Dept. of Health guidelines? (Possibly July)
 
4. Do you think you will prefer to use online access through Zoom at least initially even when we re-open?

Special Sunday Service with Rev. Jerry on May 17th:
 
He's baaack... no, not Arnold but Jesus and he isn't mad either! But he does want to set the record straight about what is true and what isn't in regard to his life, his teaching and his crucifixion. If you have ever wished that you could sit down and ask Jesus to clarify all your questions, then this is the presentation that you will want to see. This is just a preliminary notice about our special service on May 17th so that you can be sure to mark your calendars. More details next week, stay tuned.

FROM THE BOARD
 
A heart felt hello to All,
 
The Board of Trustees would like to take this time to share our deep appreciation to everyone! We want you to know ( to be reminded) of what a special and devoted spiritual community we are. So many have stepped up to support in numerous ways during this time, not just financially. As treasurer, my radar went up immediately when we had to close the physical aspect of our community. Why did I worry? I sit here, as I write this message, shedding tears of gratitude for our amazing community. I am overwhelmed with the level of commitment. Most of you have continued to financially support our community and many have added additional resources. Because of this, we have been able to keep our staff and pay our bills. But more importantly , we have been able to continue to provide spiritual outreach and support. I want to especially thank Rev. Jerry!!!!! He has been the cornerstone. He and Lezlie have been working tirelessly to continue our connectedness. We thank you with all our hearts.
 
With love and gratitude,
Yvonne Read
BOT Treasurer
