As we close out 2017, it's time to pause, consider where we are, and where we might like to be headed. At our service, we used a "cleansing bowl" to ritualize this process. If you're listening at home, you may want to use a shredder, or dig a hole, or even place a candle in a safe container and burn your "releases". We used 4x6 cards to write our intentional areas of willingness, and everyone took home a small picture frame so that we can place these intentions where we'll see them on a daily basis. Feel free to create your own ritual of release and intention. Oh- by the way- near the end, I mentioned the definition of patience as being from Unity's glossary, The Revealing Word. Actually, this is my paraphrase from Chas. Fillmore's book, Keep a True Lent. Just don't want anyone out there getting frustrated looking for the reference... Happy New Year!
