This year we enter into “Advent”, 40 days of preparing to more fully experience the birth and re-birth of the Christ,and the innocence and authenticity of our fully human, fully divine selves. Each Sunday, we will read the lesson from the advent book from Unity Worldwide Headquarters and light a candle in our advent wreath, then then Rev Marty’s lesson will address that subject.

Thursday Night Meditations
Oneness Blessing -
Thursday, December 6 at 7 pm
The Oneness Blessing (also called Deeksha) is a non-denominational transfer of energy from one person to another. Deeksha transmissions foster a growth in consciousness, causing one to perceive and experience life as inter-connected – we feel connected to everyone and all things. It promotes a sense of joy, inner peace, and stress-reduction.  
Thursday, December 13 7 - 8 pm
Heart Chakra Meditation and Gong Relaxation with Rae
The  Heart Chakra  (Anahata) is our energy point of love and compassion. Located physically just behind the heart area, this chakra can be incredibly powerful when used as a focus for meditation. The Heart Chakra embraces all facets of love, and anyone can benefit from exploring this energy center.

Love offerings for Thursday Night Meditations are welcome and appreciated.
