May greetings to our Temple Youth Ed families!
Ah, May. Spring is really here. Finally! What a great month - green leaves growing, flowers blooming, birdsong in the air...and Mother's Day!
As mentioned last month, this year's Annual Unity Village Summer Camp is in the works. The camp is July 15th-19. Register by June 3rd and save $5. As with last year, the camp will be created and directed by myself and Karen DeLong, Unity Village Chapel Youth Ed Director, and sponsored by Unity Village Chapel. To continue our environmental theme from last year, and make the inevitable summer temperatures more bearable, we are planning more water-based fun outdoor activities and promoting water awareness. Registration forms and online payment options can be found at http://www.unityvillagechapel.org/youth-camp.html#.UZKlVbWkqsM or contact email@example.com. Adult helpers and Junior Counselors needed for each age group! See the requirements and forms at the above Unity Village Chapel link. I hope you will join us!
Our Sunday lessons this month on the "Twelve Gifts from God" are about "Power." Power, we must understand, is not an end in itself, not a goal to be sought. Rather, it is simply a means that enables us to attain the end result of bringing forth God ideas on earth. It is not to be used for selfish gain or satisfaction of the personal ego, but for the forward spiritual movement of the whole. It is to be exercised not for the purpose of controlling others, but for the purpose of taking dominion over our own thoughts and feelings in order to come into a greater God-awareness. It is a gift of God, and as such it must be respected and utilized to further God's good work on earth.
LOVE and Light,
Sack Lunch Spiritual Cinema
Sunday, May 26, 2013, Noon, Temple Space
Pack a sack lunch and join us after church to watch the movie, My Greatest Teacher (2012) 50 min. My Greatest Teacher is the story of one man's life-long quest to find the father he never knew and resolve years of resentment he has held inside. Based on the true life story of best-selling author Wayne Dyer, the film is a compelling drama that explores the transformational power of forgiveness. Dr. Ryan Kilgore is a college professor struggling to take his career to his desired level of success, while battling the very demons that are keeping him from achieving it. Kilgore is tormented by the memories of his father’s abandonment, yet his wife and child are the ones who pay the price. Upon losing his grandmother, Kilgore desperately seeks the closure that he needed so long ago as he puts his future in jeopardy for a journey into the past. Through a series of mysterious and serendipitous events, a path opens that leads Kilgore to his father—and to making the choice to rebuild everything he has destroyed as a result of what had been destroying him.

Why do you like to volunteer in the Sunday Temple Youth Ed classes?
"I started attending the Buddhist service a couple years ago. When my children discovered that there was a Sunday School class that followed the Calm Kids meditation class, they asked if we could stay for it. They have really enjoyed all of the activities at Unity and I have appreciated the loving, accepting environment. I love giving back to this wonderful community by helping in whatever way I can." ~ Heather Farren, mother of three Temple kids, holding a batch of her home-baked goodness she shares twice a month with the Youth Ed classes.
A Heartfelt Thank You to All Our Youth Ed Volunteers!
I want to thank everyone who contributed to the success of our Sunday classes and special events this year. We literally could not provide the quality of our Angel Loft childcare, youth education, and special events without the gifts of your time and energy to supplement our awesome staff of teachers and attendants. None of your contributions go unnoticed, and that includes the snacks I find dropped-off regularly in my office. Thank you ALL! I know some of you have "pulled extra shifts" recently when we had some absences, and we've also had several new volunteers recently join our ranks, both for which I am very grateful. To all of you, please know you are loved, appreciated, and are making important contributions to our children's spiritual nourishment.
