Christmas Eve Candle Lighting, December 24th, beginning at 5:00 PM. This will be a virtual event this year. However, as it is one the most beloved celebrations of the year on the Unity Calendar, we will do our best to provide you with a deeply spiritual and joyful service. We will have extra music: Both Katie and Jim Gorton will be singing, along with Julie Thompson, and our Centers own troubadour, Kevin Reger. Please join in the singing of the Christmas carols, the words will be posted on the power point. We invite each watching participant at home to get some type of candle that you can safely light towards the end of the service.
Mid-Week Meditation. It is available here on our Facebook page, also on our website, click on Classes, then “Meditation” You can go back to this meditation as often as you wish for a full week. Then the next Meditation will be recorded and offered beginning the following Wednesday. This week Rev. Mari Gabrielson is our Meditation Leader.
During this ongoing time of uncertainty, of chaotic energy and cautions for personal health, every opportunity we can invest in spiritual practice is a great boon to our personal sense of well-being.
Pause for Prayer: Rev. Mari suggests we all join in a prayer pause many Unity Centers around the world are now using. Wherever you are, at 12 noon, stop for a minute or two and bless Unity, our community, our state, our country, the world, etc. This is a powerful practice of uniting the energy of millions of people around the world. We began this process on Sunday, and invite you to join in today
Prayer Chaplains are eager to serve you in prayer. Please call the church office, 414 475-0105, and request a chaplain. One will return your call shortly.
New Daily Word magazines are in. Please call the office if you would like to pick up one. OR call to have one mailed to you, just add $1.00 to whatever you pay for the size you prefer, for mailing.
NEW BOOK FOR THE THURSDAY MORNING MINISTER’S STUDY GROUP. Beginning the first Thursday in December, the 3rd., we will be working with Thich Nhat Hanh’s book, The Art of Living. If you are interested in joining this study via Zoom meeting, please pick up a copy of the book at the Church (call first), and get the details to join Zoom. We would love to have some new faces in our class. We picked this book specifically because it guides us all in living in an attitude of peace and purpose without the ‘hype.’
SILENT UNITY PRAYER CIRCLE meets every Thursday, following the book study, at 11:00 a.m. All are welcome. This is the time when Unity folk around the world are praying with Silent Unity at World Headquarters, Unity Village, Missouri. **Because we are unable to meet together in our circle, you can join us to pray via Zoom meeting. Leave your name and number at the church office, 414 475-0105. Some one will call you back to help you join the Prayer Circle via Zoom online.
