The Daily Word is timeless. Each week in this space we invite you to enjoy a Daily Word reading from the past. 

The Daily Word from
Wednesday, June 24, 1970



A PRAYER FOR guidance is really a prayer for light, light for ourselves and light for others. Our lives are so interwoven that when one of us prays for guidance, the light that shines for us is bound to shine into many places and to be seen by many people.

Today as we pray for light, let us be grateful that we know where that light is coming from. Prayer prepares us to receive from God that which has been provided for us from the beginning, "the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world."

The light is shining, making clear our way. The light is shining, revealing that which is good, that which is orderly, that which means happiness for all concerned. The light is shining, and there are no longer any dark places in us or around us. We walk in the light. "We live in the light. We have the courage to follow God's light that shines for us.

Come, let us walk in the light of the LORD. ISA. 2:5.

Rev Rachel Sue Ritz
Guest Speaker 
June and July 2020

Note: Services will be live-streamed at  10:00am 

This Sunday: Trust

During June and July Rev Rachel Sue Ritz will be using THE HANDBOOK OF SPIRITUAL TOOLS by Rev. Lauren McLaughlin for her Sunday messages. The Handbook of Spiritual Tools is a small book with a very big message. It offers a formula for what to do when you reach the end of your rope. That is the time when human minds become enmeshed in the details of their problem and fail to realize that nothing will change - their mental loop will continue - until they reach beyond the challenge to find the solution.

Reverend Rachel Sue Ritz was a member of Unity of Lehigh Valley from 1989 to 1998 prior to attending Unity's Ministerial Education Program. In 2000 she graduated from ministerial school and was Senior Minister at Unity by the Bay in Maryland. She and her husband, Alan, then moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland where they pioneered Unity Church of Life. In 2005 Rachel rejoined Alan in the Lehigh Valley where he was attending chaplain training.

While attending ULV Rachel Sue became a Licensed Unity Teacher and served on most teams at the church. She and Alice Anne Miller (Unity of Lehigh Valley co-founder) were co-spiritual leaders at ULV while the church was searching for a new minister. 

Rev. Rachel Sue is grateful for the opportunity to serve as a guest speaker at her home church where she was spiritually fed and reborn.
