And, Happy Advent! A time of year that allows for space to “prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord” through faith, peace, love, and joy. These timeless constructs are the building blocks for our ability to open to the awareness of Christ-consciousness – a consciousness of divinity always within, waiting for attention and intentional use.
This coming Sunday, we’ll have conversation around our divine consciousness and how we can focus-in on the faith that we already. In this excerpt from our 12-Power Candle Lighting service, we are reminded what Faith is:
“Faith is not something you have or have not. No one has more Faith than anyone else. Faith is a God-given quality that makes up your spiritual nature. You do not have Faith; you are Faith. You have no choice in the matter. It is your God-given ability to draw your good from the invisible to the visible. What do you desire to bring into your life? Pray knowing, and believing that it is yours, then turn it over to God. Release it, trust God that the results of your prayer will be only for good. Take time every day to say, ‘Yes,’ to your heart’s desires.”
Please pick-up your copy of Unity’s 2019 Advent booklet, A World of Hope, for some exceptional readings on the Advent themes while you share conversation, space, and commUnity with us this Sunday.
Many Holiday Blessings!
