Just as the coming of Christ was the promise of peace on earth and good will to all mankind, the approach of Christmas has a mighty power that rekindles our faith and lifts our aspirations.
As we embody love at a deeper level and consciously practice good will, we eliminate conflict within ourselves and establish peace on earth. As we master our emotions and rid ourselves of all prejudices, we further peace. Let us think of world peace as more than just a hope or dream; let us know that it is a deep and meaningful awareness that begins with you and me.
By applying faith and understanding and actually living the Golden Rule, we raise the consciousness of our world and gain greater awareness of how powerful love really is. No matter how hard we strive to win wars we shall never have peace until we have love and good will among all people.
The spirit of giving fills the heart with the life of God, which creates unity and harmony and moves us unto a larger cosmic expression. It is not the gift but the act of giving that brings enrichment and fulfillment to both the giver and the receiver.
This Christmas season and beyond, let us all intentionally express only love and good will.
Gather with us each Sunday in December and experience the love and L-I-G-H-T of the holidays — Living Inside God’s Highest Truth.
