The Story of Mrs. Nat King Cole

London, Canada, 2001

One night in the 1960s, at 11:30 p.m., an older African-American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a windy rain storm which was accompanied by lightning. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride.

Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960’s. The man took her into town and helped her get a taxicab so that she could get to her destination. The lady seemed to be in a big hurry, but before she left his car to board the cab, she wrote down his address and thanked him.

Seven days went by, and a knock came on the man’s door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. It read:

“Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then God sent you to help me. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband’s bedside just before he passed away…God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.”

Sincerely,
Mrs. Nat King Cole

It is natural for us to live intuitively and create a wonderfully rich and rewarding life. The challenge is that it is unnatural for…

What is so heavy on your heart?

Some years ago I led a sacred pilgrimage to Peru with thirty-three people. It was an amazing and insightful journey for each of us. When we were on the bus and returning to the airport, I noticed the sadness in one of the women’s eyes, and I asked her, “What is so heavy on your…

What is atonement?

In traditional Christianity,atonement is the reconciliation of sinful men and women to God through the death of Jesus. In Unity, we do not recognize a need to be reconciled with God because we are all created in God’s image and likeness.As human beings we are the microcosm of the macrocosm, created to express our unique…
