The Powers of Understanding and Release
“Understanding is important in developing our spiritual nature, because it is the faculty which puts feet under our prayers and gives our spiritual activity something to stand on.”
Winifred Wilkinson Hausmann
“… it is very necessary that the eliminative faculty be quickened in one, and a right balance between receiving and giving, laying hold and letting go, be established.”
I see the truth in others and in myself.
I willingly make room for the good that fills my life.
This week, we will be discussing in more depth the Powers of Understanding and Release. Drawing upon the rich history of Unity teachings and traditions along with the text of Divine Audacity by Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, we will provide an opportunity for our children and teens to understand how Understanding and Release are inherent parts of their stock of Powers. We will also define what each of these powers means and look for ways to incorporate them in our lives. This week we will be utilizing the story “I Had a Favorite Dress” along with decision making games and discussion in order to examine our reactions and thoughts when dealing with the powers of Understanding and Release!
Adult volunteers will provide information about the Powers of Understanding and Release and how each of us can remain open to seeing them expressed in our lives.
Children and teens will be able to identify ways that the Powers of Understanding and Release show up in their lives. They will briefly explore the meaning of each Power, and they will begin to think about how to integrate the Powers in their daily lives.
Principle #2: I am naturally good because God’s divinity is in me.
Principle #3: I create my life experience by what I choose to think, believe and feel.
Principle #5: I must live the Truth that I know!
Through our study of the Powers of Understanding and Release, we each affirm that: I learn from my life; I learn from Divine Spirit; I am Divine Understanding. I naturally let go of any wasteful thoughts which I have been holding onto. With every new breath, I release the past moment and stand firmly and wholeheartedly in the abundance of my present life.
As always, I invite each of you to join us in our classroom on a Sunday morning. You may just find that your spiritual life is enriched by the lessons we are sharing. We are especially looking for volunteers who are willing to serve during the summer months .– July, and August!
