11am, Dr. Tracy Brown, RScP, Guest Speaker

Hybrid Service (online and in-person)


According to the Bible, the peace of God, “which transcends all understanding,” is the harmony and calmness of body, mind, and spirit. Thich Nhat Hanh wrote a book and titled it: “Peace is Every Step.” Gandhi reminded us: "There is no way to peace. Peace is the way." As we prepare to honor the United Nations International Day of Peace, let’s explore how we bring peace into our lives and the world.

About Dr. Tracy:


Since 1986 Dr. Tracy Brown has used universal spiritual principles to infuse her life with peace and joy. Dr. Donald Curtis was her first New Thought teacher and Unity Dallas was her first New Thought spiritual home. Her personal motto is “You Always Have a Choice.”


She is the author of several books. Her latest book is: “Stained Glass Spirit: Becoming a Spiritual Community Where Oneness Does Not Require Sameness” and her book, I Turn to Prayer is a collection of prayers written in a variety of formats. Her “What is Mine to Do” TEDx talk led to a book, a journal and a very active Facebook group with more than 7,000 members.


Dr. Tracy is a Licensed Practitioner with Centers for Spiritual Living. Helping others live the principles of New Thought in every aspect of life is her commitment.

The Power of Prayer ~ Praying Without Words

By Rev. Sandra Campbell


As a communications major in college, one of the first things I studied was theory. One theory by a noted philosopher in the field is that “one cannot not communicate.”


Take a moment for that double negative to sink in. In the same way, one cannot not pray.


Just as when we are silent, we are still sending a message, I’ve learned that when we are not speaking, we are still praying. Our prayers are as constant and fruitful as our thoughts.


As scripture reminds us,

"Before they call, I will answer. While they yet speak, I will have heard them." (Isaiah 65:24)

Many people believe prayers must be wordy, loud, and beseeching for God to hear them. When I was young, I listened with curiosity as preachers and other adults raised their voices to God to give them this or change that. I could never bring myself to pray in that way. I somehow knew that we do not need to utter a word for our prayers to be heard.

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.
