A Note from Rev. Lisa about Ash Wednesday & the Season of Lent in Unity:
Many of you may be aware that this past Wednesday was not only Valentine's Day, but also Ash Wednesday. As we approach the end of our Season for Nonviolence and prepare for the rebirth and renewal of Easter, Unity teachings share with us that the 40 days of Lent represent the symbolic purging of negativity and the things and thought systems which hold us back. Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, in his book "Keep a True Lent" tells us that the weeks between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday are a time of spiritual cleansing and releasing negativity, fear, anxiety, not enough-ness and the old belief systems that no longer serve us and are not for our highest good. Let us all then use these next weeks as a period of contemplation and release as we choose a higher consciousness and look forward to thejoy, renewal and freedom the Easter season brings.
Season for Nonviolence
this Sunday with Rev. Sydney:
"You Are Not Alone"
Sunday, February 18th at 11:00 a.m.
It's one thing to hear someone say "you are one with God and Spirit" but if you don't have any sense of what that feels like, it may not resonate with you. In fact, it may just sound like New Age jargon or empty buzz words. Join us this Sunday as we dive deeply into what spiritual connection really is. That means connection with the "something greater" that we are always talking about, connection with each other and connection with your deepest, most loving and vulnerable self. When we understand connection, we no longer fear other people, cultures, political groups... or the thing that scares us most of all: CHANGE!
