May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace. Romans 15:13
 

Our December weekly messages are following Unity’s Advent theme A Christmas of Light and Peace so we can join with all the world in prayer and celebration of the awakening the Christ within each of us. Each e-message was written by a Unity minister to remind us that with an open, generous heart, bursting with love and joy, we can go forth this season being a presence of light and peace wherever we are.

 

Advent -- Hope and Faith
Hope is not faith, but it is a very necessary starting point. It opens your mind and heart to the possibility of something good manifesting in your life. It is a way of saying that you believe there is a way to overcome challenges and experience a better life.

 
As you look beyond appearances, your hope lights the way and creates a path even when you are not able to see it. At times, the workings of hope can even feel magical. 

 
One of my favorite ways to express hope is to say, “It is my greatest hope that ____.” Then I fill in the blank with my fondest wish. When I do this, I feel as if I am midwifing the birth of something beloved and beautiful within me.
 

As you go forth on your Christmas journey awakening the Christ Spirit in you, look toward the horizon of hope. Do so with a strong conviction that faith begins as the assurance of things hoped for the conviction of things not seen.

 
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. Romans 15:13

And we again affirm that there are no obstacles, only opportunities as we continue to manifest the abundance that will allow us to continue our mission and make our vision a reality.

Please join us for our Celebration of Remembrance ~ for those we miss the most at Christmas. November 27th at 12:00 pm. If a loved one has passed and you’d like to honor them, you’re invited to bring an item that captures their essence (a photo, item of clothing, piece of jewelry etc.). You’ll be asked to place it on our commemorative altar and we’ll have a time of sharing their beauty. You may be surprised to discover that even though there may be sadness, there will be moments of joy as well.
