Angus, one of our regular Zoom attendees and contributors to Unity, sent me this message recently:
I wanted to share a thought I had. My first wife's dad was the principal of a United Reform Church Missionary College in Birmingham. He said that traditional missionaries had gone out and told people that they were doing everything wrong, adding that we (The United Reform Church) went out and asked people how they could help. That's how Unity seems to work and as more people learn of this the congregation will expand. Keep up the excellent work.
If we all went through life saying, “How can I help?” how amazing life would be. Some of us might even learn to ask for help as well!
Further, one of the very first things we say to people who join us on retreat and in class is that we are do not tell anyone how to think or what they must do. Instead, we offer ideas and practices that support us as leaders, in the desire that they help others, too. We believe in the real idea of education – that of drawing out from within us, that which at one level we know to be true.
So this week let us ask each other – how can I help today.
We love to read of good news stories and sharing them on our blog.
