Minister’s Message

GREETINGS FROM REV. RHONDA

THE FRUITS OF SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GENEROSITY, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, AND SELF-CONTROL” -Galatians 5:22-23

The scripture reading reminds us of the many Spiritual and human qualities needed as we journey the diversity of every day living, and especially during the Christmas season.

As the outer busyness subsides, we begin to  recognize that deep inner stirring, as our God given desire to experience Christmas, awakened to our Christ  Nature, accepting in faith and gratitude that in Truth- I AM  Nature is waiting to be birthed within and through us a greater expression of who we truly are.

 As we release the emotional and physical pressures of Christmas, we allow the re-birth and expansion of the transforming powers of our Spiritual nature to express through us.

 “Be Transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2

In the surrendered consciousness of prayer and meditation, we are receptive to recognizing the loving wisdom of  Spirit, guiding and transforming us at depth. We also begin to feel an inner peace in the midst of outer change knowing that-                              Transformation is a natural of part of the cycle of Life.    For in truth, we know transformation is not a time of the year, rather a daily experience.

                                                                                                                                                                                                         As we journey through life, we are blessed beyond measure when we come to understand that we are always going through stages of change and growth,  through endings, and new beginnings.  As we release our need to control the outer world and practice inner listening, we experience a transformation. We allow our Spiritual gifts to flow through minds and hearts and express fully in our outer lives.

As we enter a New Year, let us give thanks that we have the inner power  and use it to transform our lives and our worldRejoicing that every-Ending is a New Beginning.

In closing, I give heartfelt thanks to Board members for their dedicated service to Unity through a very busy and challenging year. In the New Year, I will continue to serve and support the Board and members as together, we co-create with God, the divine path for – “New beginnings in Unity in 2018.   

In loving Service, Rhonda
