The Good News, According to Phil

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

In most Christian churches, Jesus is depicted as suffering. He’s the gaunt, bleeding figure on the cross, or he’s shown in one of the suffering stations of the cross. The viewer is supposed to be thankful that his suffering and agony redeemed us, somehow took away the consequences of our sins. The depictions are to inspire us.

However, to me this rendering of Jesus is anything but inspiring. I have no doubt that he was crucified, that he suffered. But his message that inspires me has nothing to do with the cross. It has all to do with his teachings and his actions.  (more…)

Sunday, June 14, 10 a.m.
Ordained Methodist minister Alan Garfield is the speaker at our Sunday service. Alan has been a member of our church for years, and he has blessed us before with his fresh approach to our Unity principles. His topic  is “What’s in a Name?”

Inner Peace – I am peaceful within, and I choose peace without.
Guidance – I turn to God for guidance and understanding.
Healing – I am healthy in mind, body and spirit.
Prosperity – I prosper by seeing and claiming the good.
World Peace – I open to peace and send love to the world.


butterflyLandscaping — The Board of Trustees is evaluating our landscape situation. We want to renew the entrance-way to the church and accent other areas of our already beautiful land. We intend to use Florida-friendly plants. This is not an overnight process, but please note the changes.

Bricks — Thanks go to Rick Erickson for leading the memorial brick project. We have 20 new bricks to place with the existing bricks. This is a great way to memorialize people who have done so much for the church.

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.
