Our brother and master teacher Jesus is often referred to as the “Prince of Peace.” What would it take for us to capture the Spirit of Peace and embrace it as he did? As we move closer to the celebration of both the birth of Jesus the Christ and the rebirth of the Christ within us, let us practice Peace in some real and tangible ways. As we do these things, we commit ourselves to Being the Peace and expanding the consciousness of Peace in the world.
Embodying Truth is to fully integrate that Truth into your entire consciousness. Embodying the Truth that there is only One Power, One Presence, One Activity, God the Good, Everywhere present and that this One Power, One Presence is present within me as the Christ Mind I live a life of peace, harmony and wholeness.
A master’s program requires that you select an area of focus, directing your studies and practicum toward that goal.

The pillar of salt is a highly visual analogy and often takes the center stage in this biblical story from the book of Genesis (19:15-26).

At the heart of you lies a dream. It may be something you have always wanted to do, to be, to experience. Or it may be a dream of a world that aligns more closely with your understanding of Spirit.

From the earliest cave paintings to the modern-day 3D movie and virtual reality programs, the ability to tell a story has been an integral part of the human experience. It allows us to share our perspectives and to gain a sense of who we are, who we have been, and who we would like to be. And, our stories can also be a source of limitation.
In our 40-day practice of faith, gratitude and self-love at Unity of Livonia, we are preparing a new ground in our consciousness; one that recognizes the many, if subtle, ways that God shows up each day, the many things we can be grateful for which gives us hope and the blessing of loving ourselves.
