Heart Thoughts: A Year of Remarkable Growth

Do you know what I love about Unity Center for Spiritual Growth? Everything! We offer a diverse range of teachings and events that cater to various interests. Just last week, the Unity Women Adventure Group organized a fantastic Zoom event featuring Vanessa Gates-Elston. Saturday night was filled with the rhythmic beats of a drumming circle led by Rev. Todd Glacy and his friends in the sanctuary. Additionally, the Conscious Creatives had their meeting, and word has it that this community is not only growing but thriving and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Their gatherings take place every other Thursday evening.

Contemplating our mission to educate, serve, and create community, I realize that each of these groups, along with our Sunday morning events, actively contributes to these goals. Looking back on 2023, it has been a year of remarkable growth across various aspects of our community. I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of 2024, ready to embrace it with open arms and an open heart, as we continue our journey to create a spiritually transformed world.

Come and be part of our Christmas Candle Lighting service this Sunday at 4 p.m. Experience a touching service featuring music, meditation, and a heartfelt Christmas message.

In our recent Sunday service, the focus was on the power of love. We explored the question: Are you a thermometer or a thermostat? If you couldn’t attend and are curious to find out, watch the service here.

I’ve prepared a special homework assignment for you that seamlessly connects with the Christmas season. Here it is:

Christmas Gift List

Sit quietly and have several sheets of paper and at the top of each sheet, put the name of a special person you want to remember this Christmas.

One at a time, take a few moments to bring each person to mind.

In the light of the love of God, remember all the wonderful times you have spent together, the special joys they have added to your life, and the times they have made you laugh so hard you thought you’d cry.

After you’ve thought about the person for a while, finish these statements about them in a card.

Dear (write their name)

The things I love most about you are…
If I could give you anything in the world, I would give you…
The best time I ever had with you was…
What I wish for you is…

Love, (write your name)

If each of us did this we would be on our way to being A WORLD LIVING IN LOVE!

If I don’t get the chance to wish you a Merry Christmas in person, I am doing it here now…Merry Christmas and thank you for being in my life.

Know that you are so very loved and appreciated.

You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
