Join us these next three Sundays as we explore the true Spirit of Christmas and in this second week of Advent, reflect on the Spirit of Connection.
 
THIS Sunday WITH rev. lisa:"cONNECTION"
 
We are being asked to take a walk through Bethlehem... to open our hearts, and our very being, to the birth of the Christ--the pattern of God within us. You and I are made in the image of God. It is the likeness of God, the very action of pure love, that we get to open to... not just what is within us, but also to recognize that we are all connected. It may be harder than we think. Feeling love and acting love are two different things. We are here to live as connected beings of Light, choosing love in each moment every day and especially this holiday season.
Remember... we are truly too blessed to be stressed!
