Light for the Road Ahead

Holiday Moments
Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett
From the Archives: December 13, 2014

Brief moments matter in a long life, and small matters add up to large living.  Here are some divine ideas for savoring the moments ahead in a busy holiday season:

 I set intentions before leaving home, to be conscious and considerate on roadways and in parking lots, displaying the harmonizing power of divine love.

I give my full attention to clerks and salespersons assisting me.  I am patient and appreciative, amplifying divine life, my spiritual power of presence.

This Week In Youth Ministry


Our intention in Youth Ministry this week is to explore how Jesus' teachings can bring us peace.
 During the four weeks of Advent, we are exploring spiritual gifts from the Christmas story: faith, love, peace and joy. Activating these inner powers welcomes the Christ into expression in our lives. During this week's lesson we will explore the spiritual gift of peace.
After Jesus was born, angels appeared to shepherds tending their flocks on nearby hillsides.

The message they brought from God was, "Peace on earth and good will to all." This is a message Jesus taught throughout his ministry.  This is also reflected in the Bible scripture for today's lesson. Jesus was also known as the Prince of Peace. When we follow Jesus' teachings, as the shepherds followed the angels to Jesus, we are freed from worries and concerns, and we rest in the peace that knowing God within brings.  As the teaching from one of Unity's most popular songs says, "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me."
