Recent Developments in Neuroscience and New Thought

This week the URV YouTube service explores some of the recent developments in neuroscience and how they support key principles of New Thought.

“Scientists are now pointing to Neuroplasticity, or the ability of our thoughts to reprogram our brains. This is something Unity pioneers pointed out many years ago,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Unity’s Fifth Principle: It Works When You Work It!

At the Sunday, May 29th services we will conclude our series on Unity’s Five Key Principles by looking at Unity’s Fifth Principle.

“This last principle says that these spiritual truths work when we work them. The medicine doesn’t help us if we just let it sit on the shelf. We actually have to take it,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

  • Rev. Betty Tarpley will present her insights on the Fifth Principle at the 11:00 am in-person service.
  • Rev. Rick will share his suggestions about the Fifth Principle on the YouTube service.

Unity’s Fourth Principle: Prayer and Meditation

At the Sunday, May 22nd, 11:00 am service and YouTube service we will look at Unity’s Fourth Principle, which is about the importance of prayer and meditation in our lives.

“Unity suggests that we try Affirmative Prayer. Jesus explained this so well when he said, ‘When you pray believe that you have received and you will receive’ (Mark 11:24),” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Unity’s Third Principle: The Power of Thoughts!

At the Sunday, May 15th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will look at Unity’s Third Principle.

“The Third Unity Principle says that we create our experiences through thinking. Everything in the manifest realm had its beginning in thought. So what we are thinking really matters,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

This Sunday’s message is part of a six-part series on Unity’s key principles. Spirit Circles are now exploring these life-changing concepts. To be a part of a Spirit Circle click here.

Mother’s Day and Unity’s Second Principle

This Sunday, May 8th, at the 11:00 am service and at the YouTube service, we will look at Unity’s Second Principle, which states there is a Divine Spark inside of all of us.

“It’s fitting that we will do this on Mothers’ Day. This Spark of the Divine Feminine is our real essence and not our fears,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

This Sunday’s message is part of a six-part series on Unity’s key principles. Spirit Circles are now exploring these life-changing concepts. To be a part of a Spirit Circle, click here.

Unity’s Five Principles: Beyond Our “Press Release” About God

This Sunday, May 1st, at the11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will explore Unity’s First Principal.

“Unity’s first principle – that God is absolute good everywhere present – challenges us to move beyond our ‘press release’ about God. It’s important to get at what we really believe about God when the chips appear to be down,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous says.

This exploration of Unity’s First Principle is part of a new series that will examine all of Unity’s Five Basic Principles. Spirit Circles – small groups that meet at URV, people’s homes, and online – are studying Unity’s Five Principles for their spring session. To be a part of a Spirit Circle click here.

Unity’s Five Principles: The Background Story

On Sunday, April 24th, at the 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will start a new six-part series on Unity‘s Basic Principles.

“We will first look at the background story concerning how these principles came about because there is a great spiritual lesson behind how they were created,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

I would have been there … but maybe not?

At the April 10th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will explore whether we would have been at the first Palm Sunday parade had we lived in Jerusalem back then.

“It is easy to say we would have joined Jesus in that triumphal entry into the Holy City. But often, our actions indicate that we might have been ‘no shows,’” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous points out.

Labyrinths: A Spiritual Path Home

At the Sunday, April 3rd, 11:00 am service and YouTube service, we will explore how labyrinths have been a key part of human beings’ spiritual walks for thousands of years.

“Labyrinths have provided a spiritual path home in a wide range of societies through the ages. There are some common denominators for getting the most out of labyrinth walks,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Join us for guided walks at URV’s labyrinth before and after the 11:00 am service.
