2020 has been hard. You might be surprised to hear a Unity minister speak that way, but the truth is, you can’t get out of the mud until you acknowledge that you are stuck in it. For myself and many others with whom I’ve spoken, it has been hard not to see people we love. It has been hard financially for many individuals and businesses. The country is bitterly divided, and the election continues to be nerve-wracking. And over a million people have died of COVID-19 in 2020. It would be insane not to acknowledge this truth.
Situations like the one we are currently in are precisely why we need our gratitude practice. What is going wrong can blind us to what is breaking loose. A gratitude prctice is not really for when things are going well – although it doesn’t hurt. The practice of gratitude is for when things are hiting the fan. Then, the muscles of joy and appreciation lift us out of the pain and suffering, reminding us of the good that is also present. Now more than ever, we need our Unity community and our positive teachings.
Join us on Sunday at 11:00 as we celebrate In Gratitude!
