Dr. Ruth Miller
December 16, 2018
Lights in the Darkness
On Sunday December 16th, we welcome Dr. Ruth Miller as our speaker at Ocean Unity. At this time of year with so few hours of light from the sun, we find warmth and beauty in candles and strings of fairy lights. Dr. Ruth Miller will explore the many ways that humanity has honored the season with lights and feasting over the millennia - and what it means for us today.
Please bring a gift to donate to our Christmas Children’s activity. This will be the last day to participate and bring Joy to the heart of a child this Season. Thank You!
Our Unity December Affirmation is “My Life is an Eternal Celebration of Joy”. Please join us during this Holiday Season as we recognize that Divine spark of Joy that dwells within each of us.
On Sunday December 23rd, Ocean Unity welcomes Eileen Lighthawk as our Sunday speaker. We invite you to stay afterwards for our Annual Holiday Sing-a-long: “Caroles, Cider and Cookies.”
There will be no Ocean Unity Book Club meeting in December. We will meet again on Tuesday, January 8th at 11:30am at Georgie’s Restaurant in Newport. Our January book of the month will be, "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. This beautiful and inspiring book is an historical novel set in 1946 in the aftermath of WWII and is written with warmth and humor as a series of letters. It is a novel celebrating the written word in all its guises and of finding connection in the most surprising ways. This novel has also been made into a 2018 movie of the same name. Please join us on January 8th to share your insights about the book's messages and enjoy a delicious lunch at Georgie's. Book Club selections, as well as many other metaphysical, spiritual growth, self-help, prayer & meditation, and related titles are available following Sunday service around 12:00 Noon and in the Ocean Unity Bookstore on Fridays from 10am to 2pm.
