The Valley Light Newsletter
Nov - Dec. 2022
It is comforting to remember Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays of the past, especially if you had children or grandchildren celebrating with you. For many of us at Unity Church of the Valley, those children and grandchildren have grown up with families of their own.
Advent is the four-week period of spiritual preparation prior to Christmas Day. The 1st Sunday in the Advent Season this year is Nov. 27th. Everyone who attends the Sunday Service on Nov. 27th will receive a copy of “A Christmas of Light and Peace.” The message for Sunday, Nov. 27th is: “Hope and Faith.” I believe that I have ordered enough copies of the Advent booklet; but it is easy enough to order more copies from our Unity Wholesale Account.
Let us all: Give Thanks; Enjoy Abundant Blessings! And know that You Are Loved,
Rev Jeri Linn
