Healing and Whole at the Same Time

Jennifer "Birdie" Visconti Shawker, R.N.
Communications Coordinator, UCSA  

“Finally, some answers!” I thought to myself as I registered for the on-line SEE (Spiritual Enrichment and Education) Class, “Healing and Wholeness I.” I’d heard more than one Unity minister explain they did not like the word “healing” because we are not broken in the first place, we are truly Whole.  Yet as a Registered Nurse, I’d been privileged to see healing a good many times, and had experienced healing in my own life.  Why was it when I, or others, affirmed my wholeness in times I’d been physically ill, did it did not seem to sit well with me? This approach seemed to minimize what I was going through. I gratefully anticipated some answers.

This Week In Youth Ministry

Oneness with All People

Our Intention in youth ministry this week is to support children in recognizing and trusting the voice of God within. Children receive instruction from their families and teachers. They are used to seeking direction from others. This week, the children will be encouraged to be still and listen from within for guidance. The next time a child asks you what they should do, consider asking them what they think first, before you answer. If they are uncertain, encourage them to be quiet and still, then listen within.

Sacred Service Recognition

Grounds and Facilities Teams 

During the month of April, our Board of Trustees had the privilege of recognizing the volunteer work done on our campus by our Grounds and Facilities Teams.  These teams are an integral part of our campus and CommUNITY.  Just think of all those tasks you accomplish around your own home – both large and small – from planting and pruning and watering your outdoor spaces to changing lightbulbs, touch-up painting, leaky faucet repairs, etc.  Have you ever stopped to contemplate how these tasks are accomplished for Unity Church of San Antonio?  If so, you have the following individuals to thank for their dedicated, ongoing service: Mel Ingalls, Dutch Berkley, Steve Fisher, Gary Murray, Loretta Murray and Robbie Roberts.

Dynamic Speaker and Workshop: Terry McBride

Sunday June 14th 11:00 a.m. and Workshop at 5:00 p.m.

Terry McBride’s speeches, seminars and published works all have the same central theme: people have unlimited abilities that can be realized through conscious choice. His message and knowing wasn't developed from the comfort of an armchair. From his early twenties to his mid thirties, he had twenty-seven major surgeries on his spine and abdomen. His doctors told him the infection in his spine was not curable and the best he could hope for was to live within his human limitations, with a colostomy, and the inevitability of “significant permanent disability”.
