Being of Sacred Service -- Sacred Service in the Holiday Season

Being of Sacred Service
Sacred Service in the Holiday Season

It’s here!  Like it or not we are into the Holiday Season as we work our way through 2019 to 2020.  We have so much to do between now and the first of 2020.  If you haven’t begun your shopping, your gift wrapping and card writing, it is time.  

If you need to get more time in volunteering at Unity SLC this is a great time to do it.  We will have a lot going on for this holiday season.  You can have lots of fun things to do.   We’ll have classes as usual, and we will have at least one Christmas Craft Class: A Block Party!  See article on in adjacent column. 

On Sunday I marveled at the way so many Unity people pitched in to help get food on the table, and then, after eating, clear the dishes and wash, dry, and put  them away.  It truly takes a village to keep this congregation growing and going. With a food service buffet every Sunday we have developed a special sense of community. Being together to eat and chat and help draws people together, both at church and in our personal lives.

The greeters and ushers are friendly and greet new and longtime members with smiles and a kind word.  The Youth and Children’s Sunday School is lively and the children don’t even realize how much they are learning.  We have a beautiful facility, inside and out, and it is thanks to all our sacred service volunteers that it is true. Well, let’s not forget Rev. Doc. Patrick and his multitude of contributions and leadership that make all this a cohesive whole.  He is the glue that holds all this together.

Prayer Chaplains pray with those who request it after the Sunday Service and also make monthly prayer calls to everyone who wants a prayer.  Healing Touch providers do energy balancing for people who request it on 2 Tuesdays and 2 Saturdays each month.   This is a busy place and we are all involved in one way or another.  Enjoy your time, energy, and spiritual growth here at Unity SLC!  Lots of love and light to each and every one of you.   --Barbara Duffy
