Celebrating Christ Consciousness
Pt. 3 Heeding the Call to Love


Dear <<First Name>>,

Two weeks ago we started the advent season with faith and saw Mary as the example of consenting to be the container for the Christ. Each one of us is called to know our worth, to consent to follow Mary’s example that leads us inwardly to the place of birth of Christ within us.

Last week we explored how peace on earth is only possible when each of us takes full responsibility for peace in our lives.

This Sunday, as we continue our sacred journey into Christmas we dive in to love.  What’s the difference between Christmas Love and everyday, ordinary love?  Nothing.  Love is always what we feel when we know, absolutely know, the presence of the Christ within.  

But there is a difference at this time of year.  I believe the difference we feel at Christmas is that we are more open to giving and receiving love.  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.

I warmly invite you to join us this Sunday as we Heed the Call to Love.

In love,
Rev. Jude

❤️

 


Each week we are blessed with the music of Albert Miller and JoyFul Noise



Merry Christmas!  We want to thank you for your gifts which empower Unity of Stuart to help so many.

In this season of faith, love, peace and joy, we invite you to consider Unity of Stuart in your Christmas giving.  Your gift helps us to prepare for what Spirit wants to do through our center in 2018, and helps us to make a greater impact in our community, in our city, nation, and around the world.
  
We invite you to prayerfully consider giving a gift over and above your regular giving to Unity of Stuart in this holiday season.
  
Thank you for your faith and for your generosity.   We are grateful for you!
