  Unity of Oak Park, Illinois, spiritual  home is the home once owned by the Taylor family. It was constructed in 1912, and recently we have begun a major renovation. But it’s not the type of renovation that you might think. Oh yes, we are moving walls, but not physically. We are moving the spiritual walls of our center into the community by partnering with organizations enabling us to address the needs therein.

Happy Summer!!!  I hope you’re surviving the heat waves and embracing the many ways to enjoy the season here in the beautiful mid-west.  I know I am; outdoor concerts, festivals, art fairs, being on and in the water, picnics, and more.  Everything feels so alive during the summer.  It’s always been my favorite season.  Maybe, part of that is due to the fact that I get to celebrate my birthday in July.  Woo hoo!

“Nature is Surely the Glorified Face of God” by Rev. Lisa Herklotz

Take a moment here to pause… to remember how it feels when you step outdoors and feel the earth beneath your feet, the breeze on your face, or the hear the sounds of nature all around you. What is stirred in you as you walk a forest path, swim in a lake or ocean, or take a rest in the shade against the sturdy trunk of tree? For myself, there is a great sense of being welcomed and enfolded by some very dear friends. It feels as if I re-discover, each time, a deep reservoir of both longing and fulfillment within me that pours from my every cell like a great big YES!


"Always Choose Joy" by Rev. Wilma Taylor-Costen

In 2019, I was a chaperone for the fall Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) rally. I have attended rallies before; however, this one seemed different.  There were many challenging issues with the grounds (so I thought), the parking, older cabins, the long walks to the common area, and limited Internet service. I felt somewhat stressed and distracted by these issues.
