5 Unity Principles - May 2020

Hello Unity Families!

We are starting a curriculum series on the 5 Unity Principles! These are the basics and are such good reminders for all ages. I find that the more simple the lesson, the easier it is to understand and implement it into life. I'm including a youtube video lesson from a licenced Unity teacher who wrote a book about the Unity Principles. She has included some great examples of how God is present everywhere. Check it out and enjoy a little connection time with your kiddo's. It's great to talk about these lessons at home to reinforce the concepts if possible.  The Five Come Alive:  I Am!
 
We will also focus on the 5 Principles on our zoom call for the next few weeks. I look forward to sharing a story and project ideas with you. I mostly look forward to seeing you all, even if it's on a screen.  Please email me at jennifer@santabarbaraunity.org to get the zoom login info if you don't already have it. 
 
Many blessings,
Jennifer

Spiritual Lesson for Home & Zoom Call ~ Week of April 19, 2020

Hello Youth Families,

It was so great to see so many of you on last week's zoom call. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! 
 
We would like to start having a "Show And Tell" every Sunday on our call. If your child has created something in the past week such as an art or gardening project,  or lego design, we'd love to have it be shared on Sunday mornings. Let's celebrate our creativity and give others ideas while we are spending time at home. I'd like to focus on what's been created versus what's been purchased if possible.
 
This week's lesson is about transformation. Celebrating life and how we change. We change and transform in many ways, inside and out.
Here is the caterpillar meditation
 
I look forward to seeing you all again this Sunday. Please email me for the Zoom login info.

Blessings,
Jennifer
 
 

 

 

Spiritual Lesson for Home & Zoom Call ~ Week of April 12, 2020

Not just for kids, this week's lesson is centered around Easter and how it represents more than just colorful eggs and candy.  It's about a time of awakening.

Jennifer has created another lesson you can use at home with your family.  The curriculum is often created with several ages in mind so use what works well for your kids.  Please don't feel pressure to use all of it or ask every question.  Jennifer's hope is that it's giving you an opportunity to be creative, find some peaceful moments to connect with spirit, each other and practice positive life skills.  Click on the links below.
