The Good News, According to Phil

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Jo and I enjoyed the Unity People’s Convention, held in Albuquerque. As always, there were stimulating workshops, and it’s always a good to re-connect with colleagues. Thanks go to the Board of Trustees for sending us.

New Mexico has a rich Native American heritage. The Navajo and other indigenous people keep that sacred connection with earth, water and sky. It can be felt. (more…)

Kathy Stolecki will be the guest speaker at the Service. Kathy, a former nun, presents “My Journey With A Course in Miracles.” Kathy has come a long way, spiritually and geographically. She lived in San Diego and now lives here with her mother June and their emotional support dog, Jess.

Inner Peace – I navigate life with ease and grace.

Healing – I am renewed by the healing power of prayer.
Prosperity – God is my source for all I need.
World Peace – I see peace in every heart and in every situation.


butterflyLandscaping — Changes are occurring. The entrance to the front door of the church has undergone a change for the better. A more welcoming situation has been established, with Florida-friendly plants. Thanks to B. J. Motzko for taking the lead. More to come.

And, thanks to the Gulf Coast Garden Club, new plants have made their appearance on the west side of the building. There are now two Jamaican capers, small, slow-growing, Florida-friendly trees.

Bricks — The memorial bricks have arrived. Soon we will place them next to the existing bricks. Thanks to Rick Erickson for taking the initiative to see this project through. This is an ongoing project, as more people choose to be memorialized in this way or have love ones so remembered.

Building Addition — The busy Board of Trustees continues to move forward on the proposed addition to the north side of the church. Given all the people and agencies involved, this is not a speedy process. We plan to add a Minister’s office, a small classroom and a storage area. We are in touch with contractors and city agencies to get an estimated cost. We will keep you posted.

Bill Purcell — One of the founders of this church, Bill Purcell, recently made his transition to another dimension of life. Bill was instrumental in getting the land on which the church was built, and he helped mightily with the actual building of the church, which was completed in 2005. He served on the Board of Trustees and was a great force for good for our church. We are reaping the fruits of what he helped so much to plant. He was a good man, and we know he is doing well. A memorial brick in his honor is being placed in the Memorial Garden, and a Service will be held here on Friday, July 10. Call the church at (239) 947-3100 for the precise time.
