Unity: Fasting and Feasting

Kay Davis

Unity Church of Sun Lakes is a thriving spiritual community that celebrates the Presence and Power of God, the good within every human being. We are positive and practical and support living a healthy lifestyle exemplified by Jesus Christ and other spiritual masters. Join us on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in the Arts and Crafts Room of Sun Lakes Country Club. Rev. Debbi Brown-Adams is our spiritual leader, and we have coffee and hospitality following our church service.

In the months of March and April, we observe the 40 days of Lent which lead up to Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus. Lent is a time of inner reflection devoted to spiritual fasting, abstaining from false ideas and beliefs and hurtful actions and words, for as we withdraw our attention from what is false and unworthy, we make room for the feast, the inflow of spiritual truths and ideas. In the midst of political disarray, we can fast from the belief that men or nations can stand in the way of God’s good will for humankind and affirm the presence and power of the indwelling Spirit in all people everywhere. May we all be lifted up to this higher perspective where we know that only love, kindness, compassion and forgiveness can heal a broken world and may we live in peace.

Activities for the month of April are as follows: Prayer group meets the second Thursday in Room A-3 at Cottonwood Country Club. All are welcome to join us.

Reiki Circle meets Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. at Cottonwood Country Club in Room A-2. For more information, call Lois Valleau at 480-883-6699.

Book Study: Thank and Grow Rich by Pamela Grout begins the end of March. Call Rev. Debbi at 602-309-1818 for more information.
