Advent 3: Love Beyond Reason
 

Dear <<First Name>>,


Blessings of Advent!  This week as we continue our Advent journey we'll explore what it's like to experience the love of this season, the love beyond reason.  Our hearts seem to expand during Christmas time, don't they? This happens because the barriers that we maintain in our everyday lives begin to thin and melt away.  We allow our hearts to open so much more in the Christmas season, and because we do, we get to experience more of the love that is within us and all around us. 
 

From Luke 1:26-31
26In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. 28The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
 29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.

Just as Mary was, we are here to give birth to the Christ - to give birth to love beyond reason.  Female, male, lesbian, gay, bi, queer, non-binary, trans, asexual...all of us are here to give birth to the love that was born at Christmas.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

So much love,
Rev. Jude

The loving generosity of many people over the years has ensured that our beloved spiritual home has always had the means to keep the lights on and the love flowing.

We invite you to continue this loving generosity by leaving a gift to Unity of Stuart in your estate plan. You can help ensure that our ministry continues to provide positive, practical spiritual teachings to help the next generation live healthy,
prosperous and meaningful lives.

You can give in many ways and as general support or for a specific purpose. In all instances, your gift will help lay a foundation of financial stability that will serve people who live after your lifetime—a legacy of love.

With deep appreciation for your support of Unity of Stuart and for helping to create a world where we
all know our divine nature and intrinsic worth.

Tis the season! Happy Birthday to all December babies!

During this wonderful (although cold) month, winter officially begins in the northern hemisphere. But are all of you snow babies really in the know about your birth month?

Here are some other December birthday fun facts that are fun to share.

  • As you well know, you share your birth month with a ton of festive religious holidays, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. It’s like the whole month is lit up in your honor!
  • The birthstone of December is the turquoise, which represents prosperity, success, and good fortune.
  • December’s flower is the narcissus (also known more commonly as the daffodil), which symbolizes rebirth and respect.
  • The zodiac signs associated with December are Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec.21), which is characterized as extroverted and optimistic, and Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19), which can be described as professional and organized. Which one are you?
  • Monthly observances during December include Universal Human Rights Month and Read a New Book Month. Time to snuggle up with your Kindle and learn about the world around you!
  • Celebrity birthdays in December include : Woody Allen (12/1), Lucy Liu (12/2), Walt Disney (12/5), Larry Bird (12/7,) Frank Sinatra (12/12), Bob Barker (12/12), Taylor Swift (12/13), Jamie Foxx (12/13), Vanessa Hudgens (12/25), Ludwig van Beethoven (12/16), Samuel L. Jackson (12/21), Sir Isaac Newton (12/25) and Lebron James (12/30).


Although it may be cold outside, may you stay warm and happy on your birthday and throughout the holidays!
