Giving gifts at Christmas goes back to the three wise men and their gifts to Jesus. No matter how long your gift list, or how crowded the stores, observing Advent gives us the opportunity to set time aside each day to spiritually prepare for this special season. This becomes our gift to ourselves.
To that end, Unity offers you this Advent booklet, to be read from 1st December, through Christmas then continuing through the twelve days of Christmas.
Our theme is gifts – not merely the tangible gifts we can wrap in bright paper, but the gifts of our hearts, of our love; the gifts we bring to others simply by being alive. We contemplate ways to share our deepest gifts of hope and faith, peace, love and joy.
May the articles, daily readings, Bible passages and devotional practices enrich your Christmas season and nourish you spiritually.
