The Valley Light Newsletter - January – February 2023

Minister’s Message

Here we are in the months of January and February in 2023! It is time to “turn the page in our Book of Life!” I first learned about the Book of Life from attending a weekly Theosophy Study Group on Sundays, reading articles and books by Madam H. P. Blavatsky, well known metaphysical teacher in Theosophy, many years ago.

She also referred to the Book of Life as the Akashic Records and that in the Akashic Records there was a history of the growth experiences of every soul.

This was the first time that I considered that all experiences in our life are considered growth experiences, even the experiences that our human ego would judge as traumatic or as a failure.

Everything we experience in our life in this earthly existence is a “gift.” We gain wisdom, love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding and a greater connection with our Divine Source, that which we call God or Father-Mother.

So, in true gratitude, let us all: give thanks; accept Abundant Blessings! In this New Year, make an inner commitment to “turn the page in our Book of Life!”

In Deep Love,

Rev Jeri Linn

Annual Burning Bowl Ceremony: During Our Sunday Service on NEW YEAR’S DAY 1 01 2023 at 11:30 a.m. was a good time of writing out our Elimination Lists, tearing them up and burning them in our Unity Burning Bowl. We then wrote our Letters to God, claiming our heart’s desires for the New Year of 2023. The Letters to God were collected at the end of the service and will remain in the Unity Church Office where they receive daily prayer. The Letters to God will be mailed back the first week of June 2023.
