After a resounding vote in her favor by our congregation our Board has approved an ordained Interfaith minister to be our new Spiritual Leader, pending UWM approval. Her name is Reverend Kathy Zavada. She is a composer and performer of spiritual music and has toured extensively for over 20 years, presenting her inspirational music and message to many thousands. She is well versed in the Unity principles, teachings and philosophy, lives these principles, can teach them, and feels at this time in her life she belongs at Unity of Oroville. She is uniquely able to combine and present both the message and the music so that our Sunday experience is profoundly moving, uplifting, and transformative. Many of us have Personally enjoyed her talks and music performances in the past few years. We feel so very fortunate that she has agreed to be our minister.
Wow, what a powerful Sunday we had this weekend! I honestly did not know
that speaking on the "Causative Energy of Gratitude" would inspire the
huge and incredible expression of gratitude that poured forth from
everyone who was in attendance. I have heard reports from so many of you
who attended, who said "I did what you suggested, went up to people after
the service and said 'I am grateful for you, and here's why". Person after
person has told me of the wonderful expressions of gratitude they
received. I myself heard wonderful things, but what really made me happy
was hearing how much gratitude everyone received. It was like we had
'loaves and fishes of gratitude' that were multiplied and so abundantly
shared among us all. We left in the high vibration of the Christ
Consciousness, and it is still vibrating and bringing joy, inspiration and
energy today. It has been so powerful I am thinking about doing a regular
'sharing gratitude' moment each Sunday. It is so healing, so uplifting, I
say why not keep it going?
Thank you all for co-creating with me such an experience of true holiness
here. For where there is love, where there is kindness, where there is
gratitude, there is God's Light shining bright!
With love and blessings,
Unity is a faith that honors all pathways to God. Unity is a safe place to explore all your spiritual and existential questions about Life. We welcome everyOne. If
you are in a same sex relationship or are rich or poor, old or young—we behold the Christ in you and see the best in you. Unity leaves no one out. We include all people and the living Earth
in our circle of light and love.
Unity is not a new religion. Unity is an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ with the primary emphasis on practice. The core practices in Unity are Affirmative Prayer and Silent Meditation. Unity in the deepest sense of the word is union with God, Self-Realization, Oneness. Unity gives us a collection of techniques in enlightened living that include thoughts to think, words to speak, healing treatments, creative visualizations and positive, uplifting daily practices.
Unity calls us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, all the Saints, Siddhas and Buddhas—to become Unified, Integrated, Whole, Holy and Complete-- in every way. Jesus said, “Follow me” and we take him at his word. “I have come so that you can feel Joy and my Joy may be in you and your joy may be full.”
We hope that you join us in this adventure called Unity!
