Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/02/17

Unity of Music City is Rediscovering Lent together.  Whether you have been a participant in Lent before or this is your first time I invite you into the practice “Unity Style.”  New Thought believes that Lent is best practiced by letting go of negative thoughts and feelings, not necessarily things. (Although, sometimes I find those things may be standing in the way of realizing my true Christ nature.)

Lent is a season of retreat from “things of the world”, for two reasons:

  1. Cleansing of the mind
  2. Remembrance of Spirit

In this way we are preparing ourselves for Easter Sunday – a resurrection from the darkness of doubt, fear, and negativity to the light of faith and understanding of the One presence and One power. 

I hope you will join us on Sunday for a Lesson entitled The Altar.  We will be discussing how to prepare ourselves as the true “Altar of Spirit” – and that process involves “altering our minds.” We have a new face joining us for Special Music: Trace Jory.  Some of you have already met Trace, who attends our services regularly.  I know his songs will touch your heart and your mind as he assists us in shifting from the place of seeing ourselves as broken or less than – to seeing ourselves as the Temple of God – the Altar of the Divine.  We know that “It is not I, but the Christ within that does the work.” Galatians 2:20

.   All I have to do is be willing to create the altar/alter.
