“For it is in giving that we receive”- St. Francis

“Divine Love blesses and multiplies all that I am, all that I have, all that I give, and all that I receive – abundantly.”

Blessings for the holidays and beyond, to you, our Unity of Sarasota community! Even in the midst of this year’s challenges, we trust, in prayer, that you are faring well, and that the light of Spirit is radiating within and all around you.

This year has challenged all of us – physically, emotionally, mentally, economically; perhaps, even spiritually.

While we have been forced to “shut the doors” for the health and safety of our community, we have turned challenges into opportunities to “open new doors.”

One of Unity’s biggest opportunities is to remain financially healthy. While church expenses continue, donations and all other income have diminished. We continue to seek creative ways to augment income, reduce expenses, and avoid debt. With the “faith of God” and all of us working together, we will come through this healthy and prosperous.

St. Francis’s prayer reminds us: “For it is in giving that we receive.” So in this season of giving, we ask you to please listen to your heart, and if it is within your means, make an additional year-end contribution to your spiritual community. We so appreciate your gifts.

You can mail your contributions directly to the church, or you can go to the Contribute Tab on our website at unityofsarasota.org or go to our Newsletter for all the ways to donate.  

Please know that the Ministers, Chaplains, Board, and Staff of Unity of Sarasota is here to offer prayer, comfort, and support through our Livestream Services, interactive Zoom groups, classes and meditations, as well as private phone calls.

We have innovatively reinvented ourselves, so our beacon of light continues to shine. We appreciate that you have embraced these changes; and we are grateful for your encouragement and support.

See in your, mind and heart, all of us together again soon, in our beautiful, pristine, new Sanctuary, sharing the love of Spirit and shining our collective beacon of light and love more brightly than ever!

Be safe, be well, and remember – “Wherever we are, God is, and all is well”.

Thank God Within and All Around Us

Peace and Blessings on Your Journey through the Holidays and beyond,

Bill Takacs, President
