Are you ready for Spring? This is the season of sap rising, new growth, and resurrection from the longest, darkest nights. We spend more time outside enjoying the first splashes of color brought to us by Snow Crocuses and Daffodils. I remember how happy my grandmother was as she looked through seed catalogues and planned her summer garden. It’s time to get growing!
At Unity of Dayton, we’re also feeling the renewed energy that comes with new growth. On April 7th, we celebrate as we welcome six members to our Unity family. Some have returned after years of being away, while others have recently begun attending here and feel ready to call Unity their spiritual home. We are blessed by the energy of Light and Love they bring to us!
Alive and Vital
While many people feel more alive and vital in the springtime, not everyone recovers from the deep dark days of winter so quickly. I’m reminded of the Easter story and the trials and tribulations that Jesus endured — experiences that led to the end of his physical life journey. Metaphysically those three days represent a time of rest before our resurrection into a higher state of consciousness. If you are not yet feeling the joy of spring, remember that it was only after three dark nights in the tomb that Jesus overcame the darkness. Then he was resurrected into his eternal Spiritual Presence, the energy of Light and Love that was the Truth of him. Allow yourself to rest in faith and in Truth-God is mighty in the midst of you. In the appointed time, you too shall rise. We are here to support you on your journey.
Good Friday Taizé Service
Perhaps you will take rest by joining us for our Good Friday Taizé Service on April 19that 7 pm. Rev. Sue and the Prayer Team have prepared a lovely contemplative service with Scripture readings, songs, and periods of silence and meditation. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you will be blessed by this experience. This Easter Sunday we’ll be looking at the Easter experience in a whole new way-through the lens of Spiral Dynamics. What began as the journey of one remarkable man, has come to represent the evolution of all of human consciousness. Spirit is calling you to a resurrection. Come feel the energy of renewed growth into Light and Love. Be blessed and I hope to see you soon.
Much love to you,
