Invitation to Sunday Service with Rev. Cylvia Hayes

Divine Order is an Ever-Ready Supply

with Rev. Cylvia Hayes

When facing challenging circumstances or witnessing the challenges loved ones may be facing, holding intentional space for the possibility of Divine Order makes room for miracles to flow. Divine Order is the intelligence of the Universe expressing through each of us. All species have a built-in intelligence that enables them to adjust their environment, complete a cycle of growth, and fulfill their roles in the great web of life. These human lives can be messy and complicated but even in the midst of the mess Divine Order is available. We can free ourselves from stress and worry as we gain skill letting go and letting God and allowing the grace of Divine Order to flow to and through us. Sometimes when things look like they’re falling apart they’re actually falling into place. In this talk we’ll explore the power of Divine Order and some spiritual hacks for manifesting more of it in our lives and our world.

Coming in contact with a Bhakti yoga ashram in france, they decided to leave behind their lives and embrace a new way of love and dedication that harmonized the journey of the soul in this human experience. she studied some of the arts of vedic culture, such as drama, dance, kirtan, mantra meditation. Discovering the power this sacred sound vibration, kirtan, offers, she now travels around the world with her sons, sharing a transformational experience and connection to divine source.

Kirtan is a type of call and repeat chanting of simple mantras. Through chanting mantras you can enter the sacred planes of the soul, the undiscovered inner landscape, where beauty, harmony and love is the natural state of being. Join Prema for a beautiful evening of song and your heart will leave filled 😁💕🎶.

Unity Gratitude Project – We’d Love Your Participation

This beautiful project has been initiated by member Elaine Cornick. Here is her introduction for you all to participate – I’m a member of a meditation group that did a similar Gratitude project recently. I experienced a potent energy that generated real blessings from doing this as part of a group, something larger than just myself. My intention here is to expand the power of our energy field to nourish each of us and our Unity Spiritual Community.

It’s a chance to expand your experience of the miracles that happen with “two or more gathered together”. It’s also a chance to expand your experience as a generative, energetic “owner” of, and partner in, our Unity community.

It’s an invitation to share why you show up and what you receive from being in this Unity community.

How we’re doing it:

We have two venues (at least to start with):

You’re welcome and encouraged to post short letters or notes, artwork, poetry, music—whatever forms feel like they express your gratitude.

You can post your own submissions on the physical bulletin board if you want to, or email them to Elaine and she’ll print and post them. Her email is – .

This works if you play! 😊Please contact Elaine with questions or comments.
