Hi! Just doing a newbie post :)

My name's Kayla, I'm 18 years old, and I was born into Unity. I just got back from the NW region Y.O.U. retreat, where I aged out :'( Suddenly, I thought "Wait, there HAVE to be Unity communities on livejournal!" Sure enough, there are :) That made me extremely happy, as I've been feeling kind of down ever since I left camp yesterday afternoon.

With NGU, I'm really hoping to get some of the same feelings of connectedness that I had in YOU, as well as keep up on my spirituality. Also, it'd be nice to "re-meet" some of my old YOU friends who have moved on, or who will.

I had a question, as well. I live about 45 minutes away from my "home church," and there's no church in the town I'm in right now (Moscow, ID). As a result, I can't get to church very often. Is there such a thing as an NGU chapter that isn't affiliated with a specific church? Does NGU even work through chapters, or is it a different organization system? Any clarification would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure if I started an NGU it would go over well (liberal college towns and all), but we probably wouldn't be able to be very connected to the Lewiston Unity (if at all).

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me :)

6:48 pm - Life and death

I recieved news today that a YOUer from Pensacola (SE region) was killed over the weekend. I ask that there be prayers for the family and other YOUers, as well as anyone touched by this awesome person. As a former YOUer, and now sponsor, it is amazing to me to see that the connection to YOUers and sponsors never goes away- they are always a part of your life once you are touched by just one of them. Namaste

8:14 pm - Seeking those in Eastern Region

Hey there Eastern Region! (The region that goes from Virginia to Maine!)

I am seeking those who are in this region - who are between the ages of 18 to 35 - for Next Generation of Unity.

The Eastern Region board recently hired me as Eastern Region Next Generation of Unity Coordinator. This means I am looking to start stuff up in our region- including having a retreat this fall.

If you are in our region, and are interested - please respond to this post.

Blessings to all - please hold our region in prayer as we unfold!

8:54 pm - Easter message

Friends, have you ever wondered what Jesus might say about Christianity if he were to walk the planet today? Certainly he would be saddened by the wars that have been fought in his name. And he would likely be dismayed that his two great commandments have been largely ignored. But what would he say to get us on the right path again? A letter from him might read something like this…

“Dear Friend,

“My message to you today is the same as it was 2,000 years ago. Like me, you have always been and will always be a child of God. Knowing and living that relationship allows you into the Kingdom. You can enter it right now.

“Being a loving daddy, God is intent upon giving you complete happiness and fulfillment. There is no sacrifice necessary by anyone for you to achieve that, either then or now. All that is required is that you change your mind about what you think you know about your relationship with God and with each other. He is as close as the beating of your heart. He is never absent, although you insist that he often is. And this thing about loving your neighbor? I meant what I said.

“The cause of my death is of little relevance to my teachings. I did not die to save you from your sins; only you can do that. My death was merely a preamble to the culminating lesson I offered. The final lesson was in the resurrection that I demonstrated; what has been lost in the lesson is that this resurrection is inevitable for you. Yes, inevitable… for you. Perhaps you will not awaken in this lifetime, but sooner or later you will take my words to heart and realize that all that I have done, you can do also, including the re-union with God.

“Why wait another lifetime? Claim your inheritance of joy, abundance, love, and peace now. God is ready to give you that which you truly believe you deserve.

“Do you still have questions? Sit patiently in the silence; they will be answered.”

11:06 pm - A couple questions

Hi everyone.

I was just wondering - how does NGU operate? Is it like YOU? Are there weekly meetings, and conventions and stuff? How would I find out about meetings and get togethers in my area?

5:38 pm - Hi everyone!

Hi everyone.

I'm new here.

I'm not currently attending Unity, but I used to. I was in YOU when I was 18, and I stopped because I got really busy with graduating high school and got really overwhelmed, because I was getting so involved in so many things. *Sigh* I shouldn't have stopped.

Anyway, I'm not really...Well, I don't know what I am anymore. I have become very involved in paganism, and there are so many parts of it I love, but I miss Unity and the feeling I would get when I was there. It sounds corny, but I felt so connected to a higher power when I was there. I felt it everywhere. It was such an amazing feeling.

I've been studying with the College of Wicca and Old Lore, and they have a great purpose - teaching those who need guidance in learning about the Craft. But I don't feel any sort of higher power when I'm there, not even in the rituals, and that bothers me. I feel it when I go to circles with close friends, but not in the College. So maybe I'm just in the wrong place for studying. There are other things I don't like, but I don't want to use up this whole post.

Aaaaanyway. I just thought I would join to keep up with what's going on in Unity. I'm considering attending a church again, maybe just once in a while at first. I feel like I'm (once again...I seem to be always coming back to this =P) questioning what kind of spirituality I really have. Maybe it's a mix of paganism and Unity. I just don't know yet. ^_^

So yeah, I'm looking forward to posting! Sorry for the tangent! =D

Hello Fellow NGUers. After reading the responses from you here, from the NGU mailing list, and from assorted "real life" friends, here is the reading list I've compiled

8:49 am - Reading materials

Hi all.

I have a question for you lovely ngu folks. I'm gathering a reading list together of spiritual/inpspirational books I should read in the coming year. Mom has given me an audio version of Eckhart Tolle (sp?)& the Power of Now, and I'm pretty sure I've read all but the most recent Richard Bach books. Any suggestions of writings that inspire you, educate you about life, spirituality, etc?

Thanks for all assistance and thoughts! If I have time, I'll probably cross-post this to the NGU mailing list, so if some of you see this twice, I apologize.

Many thanks,

Unity North Atlanta (occassional attendee)

3:53 pm - Sending love

I'd like you all to send your love and prayers to the family of Michelle Reeves. She graduated from North Atlanta Unity the year before I did. She was killed in an alligator attack at her grandparents last Sunday. She was one of the sweetest girls I grew up with, and her family will miss her a lot. Love and light. Sarah

8:46 pm - Joy Songs

Hey all... I hope that everyone is doing well... I am a sponsor for the YOU at Unity Church of Clearwater(FL), and last year we had a fire that started in the YOU room due to electrical problems (no one was hurt, and we are just now getting back into the rebuilt building). The challenge that we are having is that while we were meeting in tents outside, there was nothing done about the YOU service hours, and we really weren't in a place to be able to go to rallies/ retreats. Jump ahead to now. We have youth that are going to the upcoming fall rally, and there are some newbies that don't know the joy songs... all of the little books that we had for them burned in the fire. My request (and I am thanking spirit in advance, knowing that all will manifest itself at the proper time) is for any joy songs that you all remember. Even if you aren't from the SouthEast region, that's okay, new Joy Songs are always fun to know for International Conference. If you could send them to me via e-mail at melodybeaudry@hotmail.com, that would be super awesome. Again, I hope that all are doing well, and I thank all of you in advance for anything that you can send my way. Light and Love, Melody

4:25 am - Hi!

Hello. I'm Sarah Summerfield, I graduated Y.O.U. in 2003. I was a part of a regularly meeting N.G.U. group at my home church of North Atlanta for a while, but we all started school and attendance slacked off. I just went on a huge binge of adding Y.O.U.ers I knew to my friend's list so if any of you see me and don't know who I am... well I'm me... Yeah... I shouldn't write things at four in the morning but I'm glad to find NGU on LJ and look forward to remeeting a lot of you and meeting new folk too! 'Night!

Hey, everyone, my name is Amelia Worth and I went to Unity by the Bay in North Bend (More like Coos Bay), Oregon for many years. I now live and go to school in Eugene.

Just wanted to say hello, and wondering if Nick Muncie was around? I found out about NGU through Carol Torres, who had talked to him, and was just wondering.
