‘Tis the season to be jolly! It’s also the season to reflect back on all of the blessings of this past year. One of my blessings has been having so many wonderful experiences with you at Unity of Dayton. Our challenges have proven to be opportunities, and our opportunities have turned into blessings.
I am grateful for a new watertight roof, new steps and walkway, new telephone system, LED parking lot lights, fresh paint in the social area and hallway, repair of our Sanctuary window, new signs for our Labyrinth and Prairie Walk… and so much more!
Are you getting the sense that something big is happening here at Unity? It is! With so many loving hearts and hands working together, we have done amazing things this year.
More amazing than all of that, however, is the sense of sacred community I feel here. We are one in Spirit and in Truth. At times we cry, at times we laugh, and at all times we stand together with loving hearts. It feels as though Spirit has called us together so we can encourage each other as we usher in a new way of being.
I believe we are entering a time when the veil of separation is being lifted. The division we see in our country has been revealed, and there’s a gift for us here. We know that whatever is revealed has come up to be healed. Our healing work is to open our hearts to the living, loving Christ presence in ourselves and all others. Our work is to remember our spiritual nature and live from this Truth. What a gift to be able to see this so clearly!
…And a Sense of Wonder
So, we look back on the year with gratitude and a sense of wonder. We have come up to here. We have come up to now. This Christmas season, as we close out 2018 and welcome 2019, may we all give the gifts of compassion, kindness, and understanding. And as we give, so shall we receive.
Thank you for your love and your presence on this co-creative journey of life.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
