As I was standing in the foyer of my son’s school, I watched a sea of little humans hurrying to catch their buses. For a moment, my mind began to perceive each of them—not as children, but rather as the Presence of Divine Being who courageously agreed to come to earth and live a life full of many experiences. Being after Being came through the foyer, each eager to be what they’ve come here to be.
We are so courageous to come to earth in little bodies that transform daily, our spirits full of hope for the journey of life ahead. We’ve bravely approached each day building our strength and abilities. Let’s take a moment and recognize how the younger you has emerged and transformed into who you are today. Each of us is still on a journey of spiritual transformation. This transformation leads us to the fullest expression of the Divine Being we can become.
Articles on Unity Leaders Journal published in June 2011 focus on the ever-evolving transformation of our spiritual journey. Read through the articles about transformation in youth ministry and learn about teen scholarships and how you can support young adults going to college. Find ideas on how your spiritual community can continue to transform through reaching new members (Cultural Creatives), offer Location-based Services, increase revenue through snail mail and support transitions through chaplaincy.
And ministry is more than doing—it’s also being. Take a moment to read about our emerging possibilities in the perspectives of three attendees at our January Forum. Discover more about how individuals and communities are transforming through the consciously created Transformation Experience.
Emily Cady coached us in transforming into our fullest expressing of Divine Being:
It is time for us to awake[n] to right thoughts, to know that we are not servants, but children, “and if children, then heirs” (Rom. 8:17)…. We have come to a place now where our search for Truth must no longer be for the rewards, it must no longer be our seeking a creed to follow, but it must be our living a life…. Every right thought that we think, our every unselfish word or action is bound by immutable laws to be fraught with good results…. We must rather seek to be the Truth consciously, to be love, to be wisdom to be life…
Lessons in Truth, p. 8-11
In each of you, I see courage, hope, strength, joy and peace. As we continue to focus on what is right, good and true, we will continue to transform to the fullest expression of our Being.
