Sunday Message by Rev. Pat Bessey
Unity’s World Day of Prayer is almost here. Tomorrow, September 13, is the date of the 25th annual World Day of Prayer. The theme this year is “Courage to Heal” and the affirmation is “I am a healing presence.” Our Prayer Partners are planning a special service tomorrow evening beginning at 7:00 pm. I know it will be a very meaningful service as they have taken the lead on this service now for a few years and it is always a powerful service. Please join us!
I have continued the talk series from the book Divine Audacity, written by Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, Vice President of Silent Unity. This week, the power I was highlighting is LOVE. Jesus said, people will know you are my disciples by your love. The goal for our lives is to show up embodying divine love, to be love in action.
The three aspects of love that Rev. Linda explores are magnetism, harmony and unity. The magnetizing power of love is our true nature. I call forth the magnetizing power of divine love. My thoughts are magnetic.
The light of love wants to shine, heal, transform, unify and harmonize.
I call forth from within me the harmonizing power of love. The harmonizing power of love within us in our capacity for harmonious thoughts, words, and actions regarding others and ourselves. From Colossians 3:14 “Above all clothe yourself with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”
I call forth from within me the unifying power of love. From the Gospel of Thomas, “Blessed are they that are One with themselves. Thy will find the Kingdom.” A Course in Miracles teaches, “Heaven is not a place or a condition. It is merely an awareness of perfect oneness.” The unifying power of love is the remedy for separation-consciousness.
An affirmation that I learned many years ago that I love is:
I am a radiating center of divine love
Mighty to attract my good to me (magnetism)
And to radiate good to others. (harmony)
The unifying power of love is our capacity for communion, empathy, and compassionate service. I see myself in other, others in myself, and GOD in us all.
I AM the power of love, loving.
