Jennifer “Birdie” Shawker, Communications Coordinator, UCSA
Jennifer Gates, Sacred Service Coordinator at UCSA, and I had the pleasure and honor of providing the Sunday message last week at UCSA. When Jennifer mentioned our talk on the Power of Divine Order, based on Rev. Linda’s book, Divine Audacity, did not seem to come together in an “orderly” way, she was not kidding.
This Week In Youth Ministry
This week in youth ministry our intention is to be of service to our CommUNITY. Since it is the 5th Sunday of the month, it’s Rally Sunday. For Rally we will be honoring our CommUNITY. As we do every Palm Sunday, we honor our CommUNITY, just like the Israelites in Jerusalem when Jesus rode in on a donkey. We’ll wave palm branches and cheer as adult members leave the sanctuary after church. As we perform this annual ritual we are reminded of our honor to the Source within us, our family, our CommUNITY and the world. Know that it starts with you.
Sunday Message Series, Class Now Ongoing!
It’s here! Rev. Linda Martella Whitsett’s new book Divine Audacity; Dare to be the Light of the World
is now available for on Amazon. The book is also now available at UCSA’s bookstore. You’ll want to get a copy because there is an ongoing Sunday message series and weekly class on the book.
Rev. Linda shares the intention of her book, “Through Divine Audacity, I strive to inspire the kinds of bold thought and action natural to our infinite, divine, highest-consciousness self. Explaining many of our spiritual capacities (known in Unity as the Twelve Powers), Divine Audacity is not another text book. Rather, I see it as a stimulator or challenger of our brave, brilliant, and bold self that is perpetually longing to open the heart as well as transform the mind of our shared humanity. In the words of Christopher Robin (through A.A. Milne): “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” Read more to register....
