Dear Friends,

As we complete the first week of lock down, I am sure everybody finds themselves living in a world never before experienced.

Social distancing, face masks, rubber gloves and business closings are drastic changes we are not used to. However, during this time we can draw on spiritual principles to maintain a sense of peace and well-being.

Two principles are especially important during this difficult time. The first is the Law of Creativity. As human beings we can utilize our imagination to think of new ways to manage the events before us and come up with ideas that will make things better going forward.

The second principle is the Law of Adaptability. If we can’t change something unpleasant, we can adapt to it in a harmonious way if we work with it and not resist it. We can make it better and return to our set point of happiness. So, go forth with confidence and accept the unchangeable or change the unacceptable.

Join us Sunday morning at 10:30am (CST) for our Service via Live Stream at https://unitytemple.com/services-and-meditations/live-broadcast/ or you may view the service on FACEBOOK after 6:00pm.

Over the last couple of weeks hundreds of people have tuned in to the streaming service only to be met with sound difficulties. I have received feedback that the volume isn’t high enough even when their sound is on high; at times the picture cuts out or is going altogether; and some feel it is the ear worn mics that might be the problem. Please contact me at duke@unitytemple.com with any issues you might be having and be assured we are working throughout the week to “fix” this.

UNITY TEMPLE DOES HOME DELIVERY TO THE HOMELESS. The streets are mostly empty, few people are going out and when they do there is no desire to have contact with people. Yet the people in need are still at the corners hoping for a little help even though their client base has all but disappeared.

Every Sunday from Noon to 1:00pm, Unity Temple will be providing box lunches for those who are without food. The box lunches will be distributed on the sidewalk in front of the west end of the Temple. We are in need of volunteers to deliver box lunches to those people on the corners. If you would like to do this, whether it is a couple of lunches or more please contact me at, duke@unitytemple.com.

If you are feeling outside of your comfort zone during this "stay at home" time, feel free to reach out for prayer support by calling the Unity Temple Prayer Chaplain phone line at 816-561-4466, x 182. Leave your first name and contact number along with your prayer request and a chaplain will return your call within 24 hours to join with you in prayer. As always, your name and prayer request will remain confidential. 

Unity Temple Hotline Available: 816-994-8000: Please let us know how you are doing and what we can do for you. The Hotline is available 24 hours a day. Calls returned between 9:00am and 5:00pm seven days a week.

Blessings, Prayers and Love to each of you,
