Changing Other People

What Needs Changin’ in the World? by Freebo and Richard
Mekdeci

What needs changin’ in the world? – A whole lot of things, if it’s
up to me.

What needs changin’ in the world? Maybe it could be the way I’d
like it to be.

No more fightin’ in the neighborhood; hearts united for the sake o’
good.

No more hunger and no more greed; ev’rybody’s rich, happy and free
. . . .

The more I look around, the more I see, I can’t do it all, but I
can change me . . . .

I could be the change I’d like to see.”

Start Here

Leddy Hammock

Inspired by lyrics by Jana Stanfield and Jan Garrett:

“Show me the way to walk in faith every step every day.

When I’m unsure which path to take, show me the way, show me the way.

Every day is a new clean slate on which I can draw, on which I can paint

What my soul wants to see, what my soul wants to be. Show me the way.

Show me the way to walk in faith every step every day.

Show me which path to take. Show me the way.”

Attention Earth 2

Leddy Hammock

In celebration of Earth Day this week, we echo the spirit of one of the seven principles of our neighbors, the Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater:

We bless and “respect the amazing interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.”

“Dream of a day when we can live in communion, Dream of a time when we can give without fear. Awaken a way to get all of us working together And know that the time when the earth can be peaceful is near. Know that our thoughts and our actions are honest and clear. Know that the people on earth will be safe from all fear. Know that the time when the earth can be peaceful is here.” – David Roth, in “Earth.”

What’s in YOUR Mind?

Tithing means giving one tenth of all that we receive, without strings, to people and organizations who feed our world spiritually.

Tithing is a very personal process, and no one can tell another person specifically where his or her tithe should be given.

Faithful, consistent, and cheerful tithing builds spiritual discipline that establishes method in giving, remembrance of God as our instant, constant, and abundant Source, and, therefore, openness to continuous receiving.

Tithing builds the prosperity consciousness which magnetizes the tither to a steady flow of rich blessings in many forms.

Whatever thoughts you hold in your mind will manifest in your wallet!

Sacred Bridge

 Leddy Hammock

“I stand tall because I believe Something greater has come alive inside of me.”

“In a world where so many feel lost, I know God. I am one but I’m not alone.

When I’m with you, I am home.”

“I will give love. I will speak peace, all because of the love that’s got a hold of me – so wide open, so amazing, it takes my breath away when it occurs to me.”

“Side by side, we find the Truth when the Spirit in me meets the same in you.”

Joy Rising

Leddy Hammock

When you think of Jesus, do you mentally “see” Him sad and suffering?

Pictures of Jesus smiling or laughing are fairly new in worldwide Christian culture.

Most people have gotten used to a serious, somber Savior. Yet, for the first three centuries of Christianity, Jesus was most often portrayed as serene, young, happy Good Shepherd.

Only twice do the writers of the Gospels mention that ‘Jesus wept.” What if that is because the gentle Master was most often so full of joy that He smiled and laughed easily.

When you think of the real Jesus, how do you see Him?

Come, share that joy rising in your heart here at Unity on Easter morning!

Head Heart Hands

Dieter Randolph

“When the great crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, they took palm branches and went out to meet him, and cried out: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’ . . . .

So the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from death . . . went to meet him, because they heard that he had done this sign” (John 12:12-18).

Into Your hands, God, I commend my Spirit. Hallelujah – a word of praise to my God!

Hallelujah – a word of thanks for my God! Hallelujah – a moment of thanks for my God!

Hallelujah – this is a blessed day – a blessed day with my God!

“Let every breath I breathe be sacred. Let every word I speak be true.

Let every song I sing be holy, and only bring me close to You”

(Inspired by Daniel Nahmod’s lyrics to “Hallelujah – A Word of Praise”).

Living Water

Sunday morning service led by Leddy Hammock on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at Unity Church of Clearwater.

When I pray, my mind is shadow-free as noon day and my soul is resting, resting by the well of Spirit.

Everyone is my teacher and I am teachable, but I want more than facts.

I thirst for deeper understanding. O, give me Truth, that living water.

The Christ Spirit that is alive in each of us, no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve done, is that living water.

O, bless the water, bless that living water!

Time to Heal

Leddy Hammock

I love you.

I see you well.

I trust you to go within to discover you already know how it feels to be whole, how to heal” – Sue Riley and Glen Roethel in “How to Heal.”

I am in the healing mode, right now!

No matter how long I have been working through a challenge, I know that I have enough faith to reach out and accept my healing.
I am ready to be set free.

This is my healing time.
