Unity of the Valley Spiritual Center in Pharr celebrates the Second Sunday of Advent this week at 10:30 a.m. LUT Michael Scales will share a lesson on Peace.
Jesus of Nazareth, whose arrival on the world scene we celebrate during this Advent season, was [Christians believe] a complete and perfect expression of the Christ – God individualized as a human-spiritual being.
He was the great Way-shower and Master Teacher who demonstrated to humanity how to allow God to express fully through us.
When we turn to the Christ presence within us through prayer, meditation, worship, loving service and/or any other form of spiritual practice, we experience God’s presence within us, and we experience our oneness with God.
It is then that true peace, which is a quality of God, permeates our hearts and minds and then flows through us to appear as harmony, tranquility, and visible peace in our world of affairs.
When Jesus was preparing his Disciples for his physical departure, he was really teaching them that he was the embodiment of the same Infinite Presence that was within them.
Whenever Jesus speaks in the Bible, it is the metaphysical representation of the Christ, the I AM, the higher, spiritual self of you speaking to that human part of you that is striving to consciously unite with the Christ.
Make plans to join us this Sunday and learn more. Unity of the Valley is located at 301 E. Polk Ave. in Pharr. Find us on the web at www.unity-pharrtx.org. Join us on Facebook live at 10:40 a.m. We look forward to seeing you!
The Board of Trustees meets this Sunday after the church service.
Nina Thomas is still working with the Pharr Police Department to coordinate UOV with their “Blue Santa Program.” Bring your new, unwrapped gifts (children’s toys) to the church for donation and distribution by the Police Dept. We do not have a pick-up date from the Police as yet. We will let you know as soon as we know.
Sign- up sheet for “The Five Principles” is in the bookstore. The class requires 4 or more attendees before a new series can begin. This is our basic class, a required introduction to Unity belief for anyone interested in becoming a new member, but it is also available to anyone wanting to refresh their memory.
From Rev. Ivery: “Thanks to everyone who attended the Prayer Chaplain Orientation last Sunday. We are moving forward with Prayer Chaplain Interviews on Sunday, December 16, 2018 after service. There is still time to learn more and participate in the Program. Happy Advent Season!”
See you Sunday!-Sis G ❤
