Women's Partners in Believing Prayer Luncheon - Thursday Dec 5th -The luncheon is held the first Thursday of every month from 11:30 – 1:00. Lunch is catered and is $10.00. Please Sign up in the CommUnity Room
December 22nd Sunday morning "The Holy Family" This Christmas lesson on Sunday morning at 10:30 will focus on The Holy Family, and the metaphysical meaning for us today. Christ was not born in Bethlehem, Jesus was! The birth of Christ goes back much, much farther than that to Genesis 1 where it says: "God created man in his own image. Jesus was not the creation of the Christ in man. He discovered his Divinity, his Oneness with God, the light within himself, and lived his life from it!"
December 22nd Sunday evening, 7:00 pm Unity Metaphysical Communion Service. At this service, we will be celebrating the Christmas Story as it relates to us personally and metaphysically. Rev. Richard will read the traditional scripture, I will interpret it metaphysically, and Tristan will sing the correlating Christmas Carol. This service is a reflective journey to the cradle of our hearts. A time of sharing and refreshments will follow.
December 23rd Monday evening, 7:00 pm 12 Powers Candle Lighting Service and Musical. Our traditional 12 powers Candle Lighting service will provide a short overview of our 12 powers, beautiful music, and the traditional candle lighting experience. Since this ceremony has been created for adults, it is suggested, in the interest of others, that if your child cannot be still and quiet for an hour and a half, that you consider taking advantage of the child care that will be provided.
December 29th Sunday, 10:30 am Burning Bowl Service Start the New Year with a clean slate! During this service you will have an opportunity to write down all that you choose not to carry into the New Year. You may then release these old thoughts and conditions by placing your list in the burning bowl. You will be amazed how powerful this is for letting things go, and moving into the "now" with a new start. It's simple, but it's an extremely transformative service that helps us to let go of old hurts, grudges, regrets and suffering; to relinquish anything, in fact, that burdens our minds and keeps us from living the beautiful life we have been created to live.
In the Burning Bowl Ceremony we will write down on paper whatever it is that we want to release. Then we burn the piece of paper in the Burning Bowl. The Burning Bowl Ceremony is all about change as well as taking personal responsibility for our own life. It helps to build new neural pathways in the brain, cutting across the old neural pathways that have formed as a result of repetitive negative thought forms and mental habits that do not serve our highest and best.
January 5th Sunday, 10:30 am White Stone Ceremony In the White Stone Ceremony, we will be allowing Spirit to give us a new name, a new thought, a new idea, a symbol, a theme, for this coming year.
The story of the White Stone Ceremony is an ancient one, over 2,000 years old. In the ancient world, when a prisoner was released, he was often given a white stone to symbolize his freedom and to prove to all that he was finally free. A new name was written on that stone to symbolize his new intentions, new opportunities and new experiences to come. As long as the prisoner kept his white stone, he was reminded and assured of his new-found freedom. For us today, the white stone is a symbol of overcoming external and internal challenges and limitations.
When we overcome adversity, there is always a corresponding shift in consciousness. We grow, we change, we evolve and our lives become much richer because we are finally free from our mental bondage. We discover we are blessed and nourished by the new opportunities and potentials that appear all around us because we have discovered a new level of spiritual freedom within. This is why we celebrate giving a new name to our "new life" in this New Year.
