Subject: Sunday Services and all Programs Cancelled effective immediately
As predicted the COVID-19 virus numbers have increased by a large number overnight and yesterday the Health Authority announced more stringent rules on gatherings and even shut down various businesses to try to slow and contain the spread of the virus.
UBSC Ministers and Board of Directors in agreement with these new guidelines will be cancelling all programs and Sunday Services to the end of April. During this time we will continue to monitor the situation and send out notices on a regular basis to keep you up to date with any changes or decisions we may need to make going forward.
Many businesses are experiencing financial concerns as will we as the Spring months have usually brought in the most funds. If you would like to continue to contribute during this time you can send a cheque to the above address, do an e-transfer to email@example.com, or drop your donation off at the church 9:30 – 11am on a Sunday or 7:00 – 8:00pm on Fridays. I will be there at those times for those who may not get this announcement. In the meantime, the Board of Directors will continue to look after the center, make sure the bills are paid and take care of business.
Healing Requests…we will still offer Absent Healing – you can send your Healing Requests to Rev. Mary Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be sent out to the church healers who send healing daily. The Healing Clinic will be cancelled for April 4, 2020 and will advise if further cancellations. If I can be of service to you, please contact me at any time and we will see what we can do... Hugs…. Rev. Mary Brooks

As winter is upon us it brings many changes, shorter days, colder weather and the stillness of the beauty of nature. Life is full of changes and nature is evidence of that. Changes in nature are automatic - the flowers, the plant life, the sky, the weather and the sea. We need these changes in our life, and we need to allow progress to happen.
When we see so many changes around us day by day, why do we find it so hard to accept changes in our life? People are often afraid of changes and go along with their daily life unwilling to change. Changes are vital to our 7th Principle ‘Eternal Progress Open to every Human Soul’; if we go along doing the same thing then we will get the same results, and we will not have learnt from any mistakes we make. Not all changes are good you might say, and that can be true… but if you make a change and it is not successful you can learn from that and try again.
Our progress is within our own hands, we are responsible. No one else. How wonderful it is to know that we decide on our path of progression; taking things at our own pace. We can take things step by step achieving little goals, and sometimes never realising the progress we have made.
Sometimes changes are forced upon us and they may be the more difficult to accept, but they can also be the most rewarding when we realise that we have taken up that challenge and been successful.
Just as nature welcomes the many changes let us accept that we need changes to move forward and see what changes we can bring about to improve our life and the lives of those around us.
ETERNAL PROGRESS OPEN TO EVERY HUMAN SOUL
