Turn Your Radio On

This week‘s YouTube service will give a metaphysical twist to an old gospel favorite, Turn Your Radio On.

“God is always broadcasting. If we are not hearing anything it’s probably because we have not turned our spiritual radio on. There are ways we can do this,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous explains.

This service is a “rebroadcast” of a popular YouTube service recorded in August 2020.

The 12 Powers: A Fresh Look

At the Sunday, February 27th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service we will take a fresh look at the 12 Powers as first explained by Charles Fillmore.

“Charles Fillmore asked us to look at the Bible metaphysically and not literally. But ironically, many have looked at Charles’ writings literally, not metaphysically! We can breathe fresh life into the 12 Powers when we consider them as great metaphysical truths,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous says.

Flip the Script: Going from Negative to Positive

On Sunday, February 20th, at the 11:00 am in-person service and the YouTube service, we will look at spiritual ways we can move from a negative mindset to a positive consciousness.

“Flipping the script from negative to positive, and aligning our minds with Divine Mind has been a core feature of both the Unity and New Thought movements. We have the power to do this, but it takes practice,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Save the Last Dance for Me – A Valentine’s Day Love Story

This Sunday, February 13th, as we come up to Valentine’s Day, we will look at a modern love story.

At both the 11:00 am in-person Sunday service and YouTube service, we will look at the romance and marriage of actress Willi Burke with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Doc Pomus.

“This story really brings home the wisdom Jesus expressed when he said, ‘Judge not lest you yourself are judged.’” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Beholding the Christ in You: It Has Real Implications!

At the Sunday, February 6th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will look at the full implications of understanding that the Christ is in other people too.

“For example, Julie O’Neill learned that the Christ was also in her daughter, Bekah, when she went through a real health challenge. Julie had to ‘let go and let God,’” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone/Neighbor-Helping-Neighbor

Today, January 30th, at the 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will look at Cathy Heying, a minister who stepped out of her comfort zone to help people.

“Rev. Cathy knew nothing about auto mechanics, but she felt the best way she could help low-income people was to set up a nonprofit garage. Around the country, people are emulating Cathy’s efforts,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous explains. During the service, URV’s new Neighbor-Helping-Neighbor Projects will be presented – join us!

Life is in the Transitions

This week’s YouTube service will explore the fear and increasing number of “life quakes” that people are now experiencing compared to past generations.

We will look at a new book by Bruce Feiler that emphasizes spiritual principles which can get us through our transitions.

Because of the recent snow, a new YouTube service was not recorded. This replay is one of URV’s most popular services since the pandemic began almost two years ago.

Living in the Problem or Living in the Solution?

Two New York Times journalists, Tina Rosenberg and David Bornstein, have tried to push the envelope on what we consider news.

“Traditionally, the news has been considered as reporting on the problems. Tina and David have been approaching the news as reporting on the solutions. Their work has truly driven home Unity’s Third Principle (Our thoughts are prayers, and we are always praying.),” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

On Sunday, January 16th, at the 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service we will look at the media and Unity‘s Third Principle.

My Yoke is Easy and My Burden is Light

At the Sunday, January 9th, 11:00 am in-person service and YouTube service, we will look at the true story of Betty Kilby Baldwin and Phoebe Kilby.

A black woman and a white woman who are blood relatives and linked together through the legacy of slavery. It took working spiritual principles for them to get through fear, resentment, and anger. Now they share a very powerful message of love and forgiveness.

The White Stone Ceremony

We celebrate the White Stone Ceremony on Sunday, January 2nd, at the 11:00 am in-person service and at the YouTube service.

The White Stone Ceremony comes from the Book of Revelation, where we are promised a White Stone which will have on it a “new name,” wisdom, and power to overcome our challenges.
