New beginnings mark events at Unity Church

It is a week of new beginnings at Unity Church of the Cumberlands. For more than 10 years, the Rev. Teny Rule Fisher and her husband Charles have been a vital part of Unity's growth. The past year found the Rev. Teny Fisher becoming ordained while she served as interim minister. During this time, Fisher also built a traveling ministry centered in Truth Principles and prosperity consciousness known as the Practical Christian Ministry. For more information, a Web site is under construction at www.PracticalChristian.org. Bookmark it and check back often for times and locations.

She and Charles soon will be leaving to take the Practical Christian Ministry on the road, a ministry which Charles will no doubt support with the same faithfulness shown at Unity Church of the Cumberlands for the past many years. Having served as everything from chief financial officer to sound engineer to plumber when the need arose, Charles Fisher has been a vital part of our growth. Unity is grateful, thankful, and blessed to have had the Fishers as part of their church family for so long.

At the same time, Unity is equally grateful, thankful and blessed to be welcoming a new senior minister, the Rev. Bruce Kellogg, and his wife, Jennifer Molton, into its midst. Prior to accepting the call to serve at Unity Church of the Cumberlands, Kellogg served as the pastoral care minister at Christ Unity Church in Sacramento, CA. Most recently he served as a prayer associate for Silent Unity, Unity's powerful, non-denominational, worldwide prayer ministry based in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Before entering the ministry, Kellogg had a history of service to others. As a young man he served in the U.S. Coast Guard. Following the Coast Guard he worked in the physical therapy department at a San Diego, CA, hospital. Later he was led to a career as a social worker and spent many years working with child protective services for the state of Arizona before being called into ministry. It is a call we are so glad he accepted.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.

  • plateau gardening-hydrangeas5117.jpg Prune flowering shrubs: now or wait until February?

    Experts say, “Don’t prune woody-stemmed plants (shrubs, trees and some types of vines) after mid-August.” Do pay close attention to that advice. The purpose of this late-season pruning prohibition is to keep plants healthy.

  • IMG_1850.jpg Burgess Falls offers a big payoff for a short hike

    At Burgess Falls, you can be out of your car and taking in the breathtaking view of the Falling Water River as it falls 136 feet in the third and final drop of the river with just a short walk through the woods.
    But even though the state park is close to civilization, this natural wonder retains its wild and scenic reputation.
