Happy New Year

This new year feels different to me. Something is in the air, something wonderful is about to happen, and is happening now. I have heard it said that this is the foundation to living a really happy and fulfilled life, to always believe something wonderful is about to happen. Even if I cannot see it, it is there waiting for me, waiting for us. Some very exciting and important things have taken place in this past year, but within my heart I feel we are just getting started.

This past year I completed my Spiritual Education and Enrichment program with Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute, and have embarked on the journey of a lifetime as the Spiritual Leader of UCC. Now I am enrolled in the Masters of Divinity program with UWSI Online Seminary, and we now have almost every night filled with uplifting programs and soul-enriching groups on the schedule. Our website is completely rebuilt and receives between twelve and sixteen hundred visits per month. Our youth program is flourishing and every Sunday is another day of celebration and awakening to the Christ in all of us. Our classes, workshops, concerts and movies are bringing a much needed message and experience of hope, comfort, caring, and transformation to so many across the region. Every day new possibilities await. Expanded awareness and higher vibrations of love can be felt growing within the community.

The membership is rising and so is our consciousness. We are grateful for a year of change and growth both individually and as a congregation. Our Spiritual Center is a vibrant community of inspired individuals working together to keep Unity alive and thriving on Cape Cod. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you not only have a place here at Unity, we want you to feel engaged and empowered to join us in making this the most amazing Spiritual Center we could ever dream of. Each of you have dreams and desires, not just for 2017, but I imagine for the many years to come. There is a lot of work to do and fun to be had by all of us in helping make those dreams become a reality. Whatever way you feel you can contribute to our community; the giving of your talents, time and treasure is what we are so very grateful for. Your continued involvement, or your new interest in Unity is so welcomed and appreciated. We Love you, we bless you and we behold the Christ in you.

Abundant Blessings this new year, as we grow together in Spirit and in Truth.

A Message From Our Spiritual Leader

December , 2016

christmas-1877931_640

There is room at the Inn. There is always room for one more to enter in and take his/her rest in God. The Christ light is being born in you this season. Everyone needs a place to nurture the Christ spirit within, until you are ready to demonstrate it fully in the world. The process of transformation can sometimes be like giving birth to a child. You have carried this child with you for many months and cared for the baby growing within you. Now it is time to give birth to this Christ child. You might be thrilled and frightened all at the same time. Yet still, the time has come and the moment is upon us.
Yes, there will be some labor pains and it may require more strength and certainty than ever before; but the midwives are present, and the family has surrounded you with their love and prayers. The world is still and quiet in anticipation of this glorious advent. All you need now is a place to rest as you bring forth this child of light. Perhaps one of the greatest gifts there is in having a spiritual center, is knowing you have a safe place to experience your own individual healing, growth and transformation.
There is a place for you here at Unity. We have kept this place open for everyone, no matter where you find yourself on your spiritual journey.
All of us have to walk our own path to God and in God.
It is so very comforting to have others walking this path with you. Even if our process seems different, we are all One in spirit and in truth, we are all just walking each other home. I just want you to remember that we always have each other to count on, and there is always an open door and always a room at the Inn for you, for one more to enter in and find the peace of God. Now all hearts are beating in harmony with each other in Unity.
In the house of our Father/Mother God there are many rooms, one has been prepared for you since the time you came into being. This Christmas we can let ourselves bask in the peace and joy of our true nature. You are the beloved one, the holy child of the universe and the light of this world. We are so grateful for your presence in our spiritual family.

Welcome Home,
Rev. Tony

Happy Thanksgiving

A Message From Our Spiritual Leader
November, 2016

 

In this time of gratitude and thanksgiving, I want to express my overwhelming appreciation and love for each and every one of you. I truly behold the Christ in the members of this congregation. Your desire and commitment to make me your spiritual leader has demonstrated a spirit of giving I have rarely seen in this world. Your attitude of gratitude and prosperity consciousness is not only a gift to Liliana and myself, but a witness to the power of God within us all, and a precious gift to humankind as well.

Lili and I wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done to make this happen. I have rarely seen such an outpouring of support in any community. We want to thank you for showing up every Sunday to help Celebrate love, Create community and Transform the lives of everyone around us. This is the mission of our Spiritual Center, and we will expand our mission for the future with your loving and dedicated participation. We thank you for attending the classes during the week, and the many workshops throughout the year. We thank you for coming to our concerts and dances and all the many special events we hold each month. We thank you for your sacred service and being active on the volunteer teams. We thank you for your wonderful work in the greater Cape Cod community. We thank you for welcoming new members with open arms, hearts and minds. We thank you for every hug, kiss, smile, handshake or prayer. We thank you for watching services online and visiting the website.
We thank you for your positive thoughts and great energy. And most of all, we simply thank you for being you! We love you just the way you are. We would never want any of you to change who you are. No one can be you except you. We all have discovered it is just a journey of becoming more of who we already are, a brighter, more expanded, more fulfilled, more loving and more awakened you. You are perfect as God created you. I am so happy we are on this journey together.
Together we will reach heights of spiritual growth and community building beyond our wildest imagination. I give all to Spirit and release the future into the loving hands of our Father/Mother God. As we embrace the moment before us, let us all remember to be grateful for all the many and marvelous gifts we have been given, especially the gift of each other. In principle, in faith, in truth and in Christ Consciousness… I honor the place within you where God resides, that place of pure unconditional love and light! This is our real Self…And we are discovering it together! Namaste’.

All The Love In The Universe, Rev. Tony Cryer

planet-581239_640 (1)After 35 years of exploring spirituality, metaphysics, and biblical history, while unaffiliated with any religion, I am so grateful to have found a spiritual home with like-minded souls at Unity on Cape Cod. Unity’s Sunday services are as uplifting as a revivalist camp meeting and as soul calming as a quiet meditation. And the spiritual energy in the room is palpable. I call it the angels in the room.

lotus-1205631_640I have noticed I am experiencing some spiritual challenges these days. I am so grateful I am paying attention. It is a reminder to me how far my spiritual journey has taken me. I can recall going along with the crowd and not paying attention to my soul-speak. Of course when you do that it speaks louder and louder until you drop to your knees and listen. I am listening. The still small space is guiding me to a higher good. Some of it is uncomfortable. But most of it is transforming me in ways where I speak my Truth, share my disappointments, and release that which does not serve me. I cannot live my life any other way. And a funny thing has happened in that still small space- creativity, abundance and manifestation with a sense of disconnect from the world chatter. I am grateful.

Pathways to Unity

sunriseI was living and working in Honolulu in 1984 and doing a lot of healing work. I wanted a spiritual home and attended Unity on Diamond Head. The message was clear, practical and began an amazing time of self discovery and growth for me.
I have been involved since that time. I am grateful for the the deep and powerful gifts I have received and incorporate them in all areas of my life.

Pathways to Unity

What first drew you to Unity and then what compelled you to keep coming back?

Unity

 

Earth Day 2015 and David Roth’s Sermon in Song drew us in…the loving synergistic positive energy emanating from within this place and each person here keep attracting us back like a magnet…and the joy of the arts.

Music and dance found Unity on Cape Cod…and so did we!

To be continued…

Dear prayer family,

Prayer
You’ll find this helpful in praying for yourselves and others. It is filled with wonderful energy.
Human declarations are far more powerful than affirmations. And they are ten times more powerful than petitions. A petition is the way most people have been trained to communicate with Spirit. A petition is something like this: ‘Oh please, God or Spirit or Universe, help me get through this day and I will forever be grateful’. That is a petition. It is asking for help, as if Spirit is not your equal, or your partner, in manifesting what you need or want.
A declaration comes from a place of knowing that you and your own spirit [and] the larger spirit with a capital ‘S’ are truly one and not separated. So a declaration goes more like this: ‘I am infused with the power of Spirit and all beings surrounding me, and I trust, and know, that this day ahead of me will be smooth, and filled with positive results’. That is a declaration. It has power; it has intention; and all beings surrounding you will respond to that declaration and participate in supporting it in a way that does not happen, when one approaches their own spirit and the Universe, or God or whatever name you choose, from a place of being little and looking at the Universe as having all the power.
