Burning Bowl Service
Sunday, December 26, 2021
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor
Hybrid Service (online and in-person)
*Reserved Seating
Are you ready to release 2021 and clear the pathway into 2022 with a fresh start? Then you’ll love this life-changing, sacred Unity tradition! 
The Burning Bowl Ceremony is a profound way to liberate yourself from anything—big or small—that no longer serves your highest good. This spiritual practice is an opportunity for you to allow real transformation by writing down limiting beliefs that are holding you back and then releasing them. Letting go of these old thought patterns clears the way to replace them with new and exciting ways to grow into your Divine Potential.
Join Rev. Anne as she guides us through this powerful and liberating service on the last Sunday of the year. There’s a reason this is one of Unity’s most cherished traditions. You don’t want to miss it!
"Easily, gracefully, I release the past so that I am free
in this moment for all that is possible now."

White Stone Ceremony
Sunday, January 2, 2022
11am, Rev. Anne Tabor
Hybrid Service (online and in-person)
*Reserved Seating
Join Rev. Anne as she leads us in our annual Unity ritual of the "White Stone Ceremony." This is your opportunity to listen to the still small voice of Spirit within to discern your unique guidance for the New Year and beyond. This is a time to discover a new spiritual name for yourself and the qualities you wish to develop. It is a deeply moving and empowering service to help move you forward into a spiritually energized and joyful 2022!
“Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. To everyone who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it.” (Revelation 2:17)

Reverend Anne Tabor, M.Div., is available by appointment for spiritual counseling sessions at Unity of Arlington in a safe and supportive environment. As an ordained Unity minister, Rev. Anne, offers spiritual counseling to individuals seeking a deeper under-standing of themselves and their divine power within to solve life's challenges. Spiritual counseling can help if there is a need for inspiration, crisis support, or healing in any area of your life. Prayer and meditation are an integral part of Unity's spiritual principles, and an essential practice in realizing the answers we seek. We believe in the transformative power of affirmative prayer. You are a unique expression of God. Spiritual counseling will remind you of that!
Spiritual counseling is offered on a love offering basis. While no specific fee is expected or suggested, we do invite each person to leave a love offering. For more details, please call the church office 817-467-5151.

Principle #1:
There is only one Presence and one Power in the Universe and in my life, God the Good.
Principle #2:
Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within.
Their essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good. 
Principle #3:
Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.
Principle #4:
Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.
Principle #5:
Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough.
A person must live the truth he or she knows.
Centered in the awareness of God's presence, we turn within for divine guidance in all we do.
Love is our True Nature. We express the harmonizing power of love to see good everywhere and in everybody. Love binds together the whole human family.
We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. In a spirit of Unity, we embrace each person as an expression of God grounded in truth and love.
We live, love, and laugh from our Oneness with God. We honor our inter-connectedness with each other, with all life, and the earth.
God is our Infinite Source of Good. We gratefully demonstrate prosperity in all areas of our lives. We wisely use our wealth of resources to serve our spiritual community and the world.
We cultivate enlightened leadership by practicing the teachings of Jesus the Christ through sacred service. It is a blessing to serve locally and globally.
We consciously choose to practice living our Core Values and Unity Principles rather than simply professing them. We choose to communicate from the heart with authenticity and deliver on our commitments with reliability.
