Dear Unity Members and Friends,
You've heard people say now and then, "My, how time flies." It seems that saying rings true as we move along towards the coming months of May and June. It has been an unusual spring this year with the late snows and cooler temperatures but, as the saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers." Indeed, this is the time of year which brings not only flowers but other delightful things such as planting our gardens, mowing lawns, continuing spring clean-ups and planning for any up and coming events that may be just around the corner.
Despite the seeming "busyness" and "things to get done" in our daily lives, we must continue to remind ourselves that even though there appears to be not enough time in the day to do everything, we still have the ever-present ability of Divine Presence within us to stop amid all our activities and restore that inner-confidence that Divine Order has been established. In this light we have all the time in the world to do what is ours to do. Speaking for myself, I don't think the concept of "multi-tasking" works. I believe that when I give my full attention to just one task, I am able to complete that task and then move on to the next task. By doing this I know that my efforts are not dissapated by having to go back and "pick up where I left-off." I feel more in the flow with everything when I allow myself to let Spirit gently guide me through each "stepping stone" of my goals and desires.
During the month of May we are going to have our Annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday the 27th after our worship service and hospitality. At that time, I will give a brief "State of the Church" address, followed by a financial report and the election of new members of the Board of Trustees. Remember that you must be a member of Unity of Missoula to vote. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all of the current serving members of the board. Your dedication in serving our spiritual community reflects your commitment to seeing that Unity of Missoula continues to be a place where we support each other in the pursuit of every individual's journey of spiritual evolution. As to all of the other programs and services we provide, I want to also thank our paid staff, volunteers and those who give so much in other ways that enrich our experiences here at Unity.
So let us welcome the next two months with doing every little thing with a sense of joy, abundance, gratitude, zest and zeal, but most importantly remember to always HAVE FUN!
Peace and Prayers, Jeff Haberman, President for the Board of Trustees
