“What Does a Happy Life Look Like?”

Rev. Anne Tabor

11am CT | Sanctuary & Livestream


It has been said that real goals aren’t about the future at all. They’re about how you live your life… right now. So, when you think about what a happy life looks like—what comes to mind? For most folks it’s some version of enjoying the simple things and making the most of every moment. But did you know that you have the God-given power to steer the course of your happiness no matter what? 


Join Rev. Anne for the conclusion of our three-part series Happiness Tidbits to Transform Your Life and discover once and for all why you need not wait for what is already here and abundantly available to you.

Unity of Arlington is a loving, thriving spiritual community that welcomes all people and honors all paths to enlightenment. And we’d love to have you join us as an official member! Membership is not required for attending services or serving at Unity of Arlington. However, we encourage it as a way for an individual to commit to his or her own spiritual growth, and make meaningful connections with other like-minded people in faith.  


Active members attend services regularly, participate in events, invest their time and talents in our church, attend classes, and contribute their financial gifts to Unity of Arlington. Members also participate in voting on important church matters.


Classes required for membership are offered in two parts and will cover: Unity Basics, Unity Prayer, and Membership Basics. There will also be a time for questions and discussion. To become a member, attendance is required at both classes.  


Please note: per our recent Bylaws revision, anyone desiring membership in UofA, regardless of city, state or country of residence may, after three months of regular, in-person or online attendance and completion of UofA new member orientation classes, file an application for membership.

Prayer Chaplain Information Meeting NaOra Horton and Theresa Riggs

Sunday, April 30, 2023, at 1pm


We are all blessed to be called to many areas of sacred service within our church community. Being a prayer chaplain is a calling, a commitment to prayer for and with others. So, what is being a prayer chaplain all about? What does it entail?


Our prayer chaplains are offering an introductory meeting on Sunday,

April 30, at 1pm, right after church service. We’ll be serving light refreshments and providing insights into the sacred calling of prayer chaplaincy. If you feel that God might be whispering this calling into your heart, please pick up a brochure for more details and sign up for this introductory meeting.

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.
