Friends Room Daily Word

Some of you may already take audio Daily Word as a regular monthly cassette or CD, as a paid subscription, or free if you are registered blind or partially sighted. Here however we are offering a completely new Daily Word service, featuring audio downloads of classic Daily Word readings from the past. These recordings will be refreshed regularly to keep you up to date. Click on the blue date numbers below to start your audio download. Your computer’s media player will open and you should automatically hear the recording after a few moments. Please note that because these are historic recordings, the daily readings may occasionally deal with special days in the past calendar (eg Easter Sunday or Mothering Day) which occur on different days in this, our present year.

For February’s Daily Word recordings we fly forward on our magic carpet to the year of 2012. Ken Bradley’s recordings for this year deliver Daily Word’s daily reflections and meditation with that same spirit of strength, hope and comfort.

Friends Room Daily Noon Service

Those of you who phone the Silent Unity prayer-line will know that we hold services here at Unity Maidenhead every weekday where we keep everyone in prayer who is named on our daily prayer lists. Now, and exclusively on the Friends Room, you will be able to take part in these services as we will be placing a regular recording on YouTube which you can access by simply clicking below.

The recording is usually a little shorter than our full daily service but does have periods of silence during which you too can join in our silent prayer and meditation. Because of confidentiality, names of those on our prayer list, which are spoken during the service, have been edited out of the recording.

January’s Service can be used as a way of preparing ourselves spiritually for the coming year. Indeed the introductory prayers reflect this idea. The recording lasts just under twenty minutes with periods of quiet meditation. Click on the Youtube link below to experience fully Silent Unity’s daily time given over to spiritual peace.

 

 Stop Press! We are hoping soon to begin a live streaming of some of our regular Services including the daily prayers at Unity Maidenhead.  This will mean you can watch these services live as they are happening on this web-page. Watch this space!

If you wish to listen to our latest  Silent Unity Monthly Prayer Service which you can use in your own personal prayer and meditation, click on the audio link below.  It includes some short moments of silence between each set of prayers; and lasts about five minutes:

Monthly Prayers February 2016

Friends Room Favourite Daily Word copy

Over the years, we all have our favourite memorable Daily Word meditations. Some of us may cut out these pages and keep them nearby us in a purse, a wallet or by the bed. Some Daily Word subscribers go through each new bi-monthly magazine marking the pages that seem most wise or powerful for this time in their lives. In this section of the Friends Room we highlight an especially memorable Daily Word reading for the month, and present it to you in the form of a short YouTube film featuring meditational sounds & images accompanying the audio reading for that day by Ken Bradley. Ken’s reading is taken from the regular audio version of Daily Word which you can subscribe to, or have sent free if you are blind or partially sighted.

My Favourite Daily Word for JANUARY is Tuesday 12th. I wonder how many of us found it difficult to create an affirmative vision for the coming year, in view of all that is happening at home and abroad right now? If you did, then turn to this special day and drink in words of hope, confort and celebration. The word for the day (actually it is a phrase) is ‘live your dream’ which we should all perhaps put on a piece of paper and keep safe in our wallet or purse….

Ken Bradley’s reading is accompanied in this short video by some restful images of lake Windermere in the Lake District. An area’s whose enduring beauty and spiritual inspiration is not diminished even by our recent calamitous recent floods:
