"Permission Slip Sunday"

Rev. Anne Tabor

11am CT | Sanctuary & Livestream


It’s the beginning of a brand new year. You’ve released some of your old patterns. You’ve set wonderful intentions for 2023.


And so, you might be asking yourself, “Okay, now what?” 


Join Rev. Anne to explore a powerful practice you can immediately start doing to calm your Inner Gatekeeper. Do you know what your Inner Gatekeeper is? Your Inner Gatekeeper is that “thing” that’s trying to keep you doing what you’ve always done… even though you know it’s no longer serving you! Adding this practice to your spiritual toolkit might possibly be the greatest gift you give yourself all year!

"If God Had Only Published a Manual"

Rev. Lari Goold, Guest Speaker

11am CT | Sanctuary & Livestream


We all have spent years reading and studying and working our way back to realizing our original Soul-state of perfection. Wouldn't it have been easier to just supply us with a “how-to” manual? Actually, we do have one, we just have to find it in our mental “closets."

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.
