How can we be Radiant Centers of Love & Light in the world?
One way is to forgive those who "trespass" against us.
What does trespass mean to you?
1.enter the owner's land or property without permission.
"there is no excuse for trespassing on railroad property"
commit an offense against (a person or a set of rules).
"a man who had trespassed against Judaic law"
synonyms:sin, transgress, offend, do wrong, err, go astray, fall from grace, stray from the straight and narrow"he would be the last among us to trespass"
To be love in the world we need to be able to forgive those who Offend, Do Wrong against us.
Are you able to do that today?
Have some fun with the idea.
Rough Cut of John's talk inspiring us to become a Radiant Center of Light & Love in 2018.
This late-1920s recording is a beautiful example of Charles Fillmore preaching the Power of Positive Thinking decades before the phrase was even invented. In thirty-three seconds, Fillmore encourages his listeners to greet the New Year with faith and optimism:
“The joy of the Lord be unto you. You should begin the New Year with great enthusiasm, because you know the Truth. Forget the things that are past. Rejoice in the opportunities of the present. Many blessings are yours. Pile up those blessings in your consciousness, and they will multiply and increase until your joy will be full. God bless and keep you always.”
Thank you's for this recording goes to Sammy Smith and TruthUnity.org
"May you be a radiant center of
Light & Love in 2018!"

Let’s explore Love together.
How do you perceive God’s love for you?
Do you feel you need to earn it?
Do you wonder if God’s love is meant for you?
Do you see the overflow of God’s love in your own life toward others?
How will you manifest Love this week?
“Little children, let us not love with word or
with tongue, but in deed and truth”
(1 John 3:18).
Let’s explore peace together.
Philippians 4:6–7 tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you,” He told His disciples. “I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).
How will you manifest Peace this week?
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
The first Sunday of Advent is the a day of Faith & Hope.
The word advent is a version of a Latin term which means “coming.” So we use these weeks leading up to Christmas as a chance to look forward to our celebration of the arrival of Jesus, our Christ Consciousness, and the light of the world.
How can we purposefully live this season of anticipation in light of hope?
I’d like to suggest it starts with acknowledging the darkness around us, embracing the wait, and committing to the journey.
Here are some quotes to contemplate this week:
Faith is the highest expression of belief or confidence
The idea that faith is something that has to do only with one's religious experience is incorrect. Faith is a faculty of the mind that finds its most perfect expression in the spiritual nature, but in order to bring out one's whole character it should be developed in all its phases (CH 85).
It is when faith is exercised deep in spiritual consciousness that it finds its right place, and under divine law, without variation or disappointment, it brings results that are seemingly miraculous (CH 87).
The power to see in Spirit is peculiar to faith. In its outer expression this power is sight; interiorly it is that which perceives the reality of the substance of Spirit (CH 89).
Anyone who has faith in Spirit and the power of the word spoken in faith can send it forth, and like the radio oscillation, it will be picked up by receptive minds everywhere (ASP 55).
You make it Special.
THE CHOICE IS MINE
We continue our study of Imelda Shanklin's "What Are You?" with Rev. John Zenkewich
Consciousness is direct knowledge or perception of an object, state, or sensation.
The things of which you most commonly and most ardently think become your consciousness. Because this is true, you are responsible for what you have about you. Do you know the character of your consciousness? If your group of material thoughts and your group of spiritual thoughts should instantly take on three-dimensional form and stand before you, which group would be the stronger? In which group would your thoughts of life be found? Where do you think your thoughts of finance would appear? In which association should you look, were you to search for your health thoughts? With which array would you find your conceptions of love? Examine your two groups; you can determine without the aid of a seer whether your predominating consciousness is spiritual or material. Knowing which group prevails, frequently remind yourself that your consciousness is your life. This will keep you alert to the need of construction or reconstruction, in accordance with the chosen aim of your life.
If your consciousness seems to be balanced between spirituality and materiality, watch your reaction when a crisis occurs. If at the crisis your thought leaps to God as your deliverer, you are building a consciousness that will be so highly protective that it will disperse the assault against you before assault can be organized.
In this episode we discuss our Miniseries Reel Spirit, where we looked at the summer blockbuster movies, Terminator Genisys, Ant Man and Fantastic Four.
We continue our study of Catherine Ponder's The Prospering Power of Prayer and look at Chapter 5 Prayer in Pictures.
Here is a preview of some of the ideas we will discuss this weekend:
You can picture a thing and bring it through
Rather than trying to reason it through or force it through.
You can hasten your good through picturing!
Results have to be planned.
Prosperity is a planned result.
When we visualize with the help of a Wheel of Fortune
We are really praying and imaging our good;
We are changing the current of our thinking
From negative to positive,
From despair to hope,
From discouragement to encouragement.
Keep quiet about what you are picturing,
so that you will not talk your good away.
Easter symbolizes the final overcoming in the Bible story of man's journey into light. It represents the triumph of Spiritual Consciousness over the last Outer Intimidation of man.
An adequate faith in your own ability and distinctive individuality, coupled with your faith in God, gives you strength to face life “square on”, and not retreat. You do have “what it takes”! God has built it into your inmost being. Go forth in confidence now, to claim the good new things that await you as an unbound, fearless child of God with whom all things are possible!”
On Easter Sunday when greeted with:
“Christ has Risen!” respond “Surely Christ has Risen in You!”
All things are possible!
This is from our lesson where we discussed how our thoughts create our experience in the world and how we can influence our thinking.

Here is some spritual inspiration from a Classic Unity Booklet.
This week we began our review of the original Unity Correspondence Course.
We discussed the meaning of the Silence and Charles Fillmores meditation Affirmation called " The Invocation"
I am now in the presence of Pure Being and immersed in the Holy Spirit of Life, Love and Wisdom. I acknowledge Thy Presence and Thy Power, Oh, blessed Spirit. In Thy Divine Wisdom now erase my mortal limitations and from thy pure Substance of Love bring into manifestation my world according to Thy perfect Law

The Prayer of Faith-Hannah More Kohaus
God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of the day.
I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient, kind, and loving too.
All things I am, can do, and be
Through Christ, the Truth that is in me.
God is my health, I can’t be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and love and Truth are here.
This Weekend we celebrated Global Oneness Day ad discussed the Unity method of Denial and Affirmation in prayer.

Envision, in your mind, an open door to all the world
One planet, one people, a world where fear does not exist
All nations, united, and human rights for everyone
It can happen, why can’t we?
Take me to a place where there’s peace in the human race
Where everyone is treated the same, regardless of their name
Where the arts flourish here, where there’s no such thing as fear
The people dance, the people sing, let freedom ring.
Step into the shoes of, your brothers in distress and pain
Perspective is changing, open hearts can change the world
Change places, new vision, inviting all into the dance
It can happen, why can’t we?
