Ocean Unity of Newport would like to share a message from Jim Blake, CEO of Unity Worldwide Ministries, titled “Standing Together.” He talks about the chaos going on around us and how Unity can be a source of comfort and inspiration. The following is an excerpt from Mr. Blake’s message; however, you can read the entire message or listen to the audio version at https://www.unity.org/standtogether. There are resources on this Website about combating racism and healing our nation, including information from the NAACP, as well as links to books, podcasts, and articles.
Message from Jim Blake: “We find ourselves in the midst of seeming chaos everywhere we look. While in the throes of the largest pandemic in a century, we are now seeing unprecedented nationwide unrest. These are not small issues we are trying to navigate. We are taking on the safety, health, and well-being of our families, friends, and loved ones, while at the same time exposing and overturning centuries of bias, privilege, and racism that have long been screaming to be acknowledged and addressed. We need profound change that preserves and protects the human rights of every individual in this country. It’s a lot to process individually or collectively. In the midst of so much divisiveness at every turn, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. There is tremendous pain, suffering, and injustice that must be accounted for. My message today is to tell you that wherever you are in the midst of this—we see you. We feel you. We hear you. We are listening so that we may understand deeply what troubles you and how Unity can be a source of comfort, education, and inspiration as we walk together and forge a new path forward, ushering in the great change that is so desperately needed right now. Our commitment and calling at Unity to help and serve has never been more steadfast or strong…May our prayers and our dialogue be transformed into spiritual right action so that we create long-lasting and meaningful change. This is our commitment to you. We stand with you in Unity.”
