Practicing Peace the Mr. Rogers Way

In spiritual circles, when we talk of peace, we usually focus on INNER PEACE.  This year, the isolation of COVID and the turmoil in our cities and states has demonstrated a need for the practice of peace.  Join us this Sunday as we look at some very practical ways to practice peace from an iconic good neighbor.

Scripture:  I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart.  And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.  John 14:27 (NLT)

Rev. Jean DeBarbieris

– Hope and Faith

This year as we begin Advent, Unity Headquarters has added “Hope” to the traditional theme of “Faith” for our first Sunday of preparation for Christmas.  Here at Unity Eastside, we’ve added our Prayer Chaplain Dedication Ceremony to this Sunday’s service.  It is fitting that the themes of hope and faith are the backdrop to this ceremony.  Hope is the emotion contained within faith.  It allows us to believe in the unseen universe of possibilities that exist within any situation.  Faith is the power that sustains us and moves us as we await the manifestation of our prayers.  Together, hope and faith are the breath and bedrock of our prayer lives.

Scripture:  Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1

Rev. Jean DeBarbieris
