It’s astonishing to realize that we’re approaching the final weeks of 2023 – a sentiment echoed by many who wonder where the year went. As we gear up for the festivities of Christmas and New Year’s, we have some meaningful events planned.
Tonight marks the Remembrance service, an occasion I’ll be hosting alongside Wiley Beveridge, who will be providing the musical accompaniment. This service is dedicated to honoring the losses that the year-end often brings to the forefront, and we aim to recognize the associated emotions.
On Thursday afternoon, a special edition of the Unity Women’s Group awaits, featuring Vanessa Gates-Elston. Vanessa will be supporting us as we transition into 2024, drawing upon her extensive expertise. Participating in this Zoom event promises to be enriching.
Following that, on Saturday night, there’s an in-person drumming circle led by Rev. Todd Glacy and friends at 7 p.m. If you’ve never experienced a drumming circle, you’re in for a treat.
For additional details and registration information, please check our calendar.
This past Sunday the service was focused on wiping out the darkness in our world – it begins with you and me.
We must dissolve the limited, negative states in our own consciousness. It begins by releasing the inner splendor within us. We cannot fight negativity with negativity and hope to create something positive.
There is one thing that can cancel out the darkness and negativity, and that is the candle, the light of Truth. This light is the Christ consciousness within us, which has the power to dissolve any darkness.
And as you allow the Christ light to shine through you, others are lifted up in their awareness of the Truth to see that same light shining within themselves. We help each other see the Light by being the Light!
If you missed the service, you can watch it here.
Also, the meditation is worth listening to even if you were at the service on Sunday.
Next Sunday is the third week of Advent and the talk is “For This Reason I Came.”
Know that you are so very loved and appreciated.
You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
