Happy New Year!!!
Dear friends, 2017 was a great year for our church with the arrival of Rev. Chris. The music team was excited as well to be able to support his vision and direction. Last week my personal vision for the music department took form with the arrival of my own Grand Piano that found a new home in our Sanctuary. This is just a start in bringing, attracting and creating a more diverse, professional platform to enhance our Music Ministries. I am truly Blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with the incredible Julianne and Richard Tutko, Beverly and Howard Vance and the dynamic choir ensemble.
Thank you for your commitment and continuous support
On Saturday, September 16, 2017 UCPC was honored to host the Interfaith Labyrinth Peace Walk with Sri Sri Sri Viswayogi Viswamjee Maharaj, Swamiji. This walk was part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Action activities which received coverage by local media: WMC TV5 and The Commercial Appeal.
If you were unable to attend the Peace Walk here at our labyrinth, The Viswayogi Foundation has graciously provided a video of the walk so you can enjoy the experience.
Several weeks ago Minnie Burton shared with us her journey of cancer diagnosis, treatment, and greatest of all: Healing. We would like to share that here with you as a testament to the healing power of prayer.
I have been given a new life, and I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer in October 2016. My marker was 870 at that time. The Doctor said if my body could stand the treatment, he could cure the cancer. due to my Unity beliefs and principles, I met the challenge with a complete change of mind, body, and spirit. That belief foundation along with the blessing of prayer support allowed my body to be healed with the surrender to Perfect Spirit.
We began Chemotherapy and approximately two weeks later, in January 2017, the doctor performed surgery but was unable to get all the cancer. So, we continued with Chemo. Two weeks ago (mid June), when the doctor assessed a new marker it was zero!
The power of prayer. I am so blessed! And again, I thank Reverend Chris, all my friends, my prayer group, and especially my daughter, Sandy. She and God are always there for my every need.
On Sunday, May 7th our own "Sweet Sue" Susan Rivers demonstrated various ways of creating headwrap 'halos' to adorn ourselves. The Ladies - and a few men - had a wonderful time learning all the various creative ways scarves can be used to cover up a bad hair day, or accentuate an outfit.
Sunday, May 14th will be "Headwrap Sunday" when our service will be enhanced by the beauty of these creations!
Thank you Susan for sharing your passion and talent with us all!
