Call out the Children...
By Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity
Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be "called out" is to follow the harmonious law of the soul's unfoldment. Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry open that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of its own unfolding, but our children! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities? Have we always remembered that they, too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius?
We recognize that the Christ Spirit is already in each of us and in each of our children.
Our role is to encourage the unfolding or blossoming of that Christ Spirit within our children and us. We realize that in order to fulfill our role, we must nurture, individually and as a group, our own Christ Spirit by seeking first God in us, then letting that God in us be expressed in our lives.
Our mission is to draw forth from every child and teen their innate Love and Wisdom through the teaching of Unity spiritual principles in an environment that is God centered, loving, respectful, beautiful and safe.
