The Voices of Unity Youth Choir is a very positive and empowering environment. The leadership, volunteers, and members encourage me to strive to be a professional young adult. Mr. White shares life lessons which I take and apply to my own life. The relationships I’ve made with the Voices of Unity have become an extension of my family. I love the Voices of Unity!Hannah MossburgUNITY Member, 2018-present
Out of everything I have learned in UNITY, and through Marshall White, the number one thing I am asked is what have you been taught that stuck with you the most? “Be a light, not a star.” I try to live by this, and I believe it describes me and my life through UNITY. You should never do things for attention or glory. Stars look to be shined on and take the spotlight, but lights shine not for the attention but rather to lead the way. I truly hope my testimony leads someone to either consider investing themselves or their resources into the future leaders of tomorrow.David Alvarez
In Times Like These Thought Series
During my teenage years, while attending church, I remember playing on the organ the hymn my father would sing on a particular Sunday, “In Times Like These”. As a teen, I didn’t understand what “times” the song was referring to because I thought as a teenager, everything was just fine. However, as an adult, I’ve witnessed some challenging events that have taken place in our country and around the world. Now I truly understand what the hymn, “In Times Like These” means, especially because of the number of challenging times that I have even personally experienced.
This present crisis is one that I’ve never experienced or even thought I would ever experience during my lifetime. For many of you, this crisis is at the back door of your life, and others, this crisis is at the front door. No matter where you are in life, this is a moment in our world history that we will never forget. None of us will be the same after it passes.
- In Times Like These brings our purpose in life back into focus.
- In Times Like These realigns our priorities.
- In Times Like These exposes us to what it means to care for one another no matter your religious, political or educational affiliation.
- In Times Like These reteaches us how to value those around us and those close to us.
- In Times Like These puts us all in the same boat no matter if you are rich, poor, black, brown, yellow, white, male or female, famous, unknown, pastor, pope, king, prince, queen, head of state, etc.
- In Times Like These it brings out the real character and heart of all of us.
I will assure you; God has mysterious ways of communicating to his creation, I’M IN CHARGE! These are the days that try men’s souls, a statement Thomas Paine wrote in 1777, in an essay entitled The Crisis.
This is the time to stop, be still and gain back what so many of us have lost in this busy and dismissive world; the ability to value, care and love others. Take these times to build your arsenal of love, respect, and humility. Refocus your goals on things more meaningful and lasting and not just personal achievements. This crisis has revealed to all of us how important our earthly gains and schedules are…. not that IMPORTANT!
I encourage the UNITY family members and our friends in this community and around the world to let this crisis make you better, wiser, and much more appreciative of the things and people in your life. Let the distress of this crisis increase your strength, stamina, and determination so that you can adjust to whatever lifestyle you are forced to embrace.
In Times Like These, we should look to our creator for protection, guidance, and peace in this crisis.
May God Bless You All,
