Christmas Peace – How can we achieve it? Christmas doesn’t always feel calm and joyful. It can feel sad and stressful due to loss and all that we feel we should do.
With all of the happy, happy, happy that seems to go along with how we feel Christmas should feel, how do we get through the season when we aren’t feeling that same way. This week, Reverend Bob will share his message on this topic.
Consider giving yourself the gift of Christmas Peace this year. Practice being still and set your intention to be the peace you wish to see in the world. You don’t have to be what you think others expect at Christmas. By being peaceful, you will help yourself and others see that peace in the world.
Children’s Christmas Play
This Sunday, the Youth Ministry will be presenting their Christmas play during the end of the 11:00 AM service. It is titled “Christmas Every Day.” The children have been working hard with Ms. Brigitte and the teacher volunteers to come up with a great play to share with all of you.

Sunday Christmas Services
All Sundays in December focus on Advent and aspects of the Christmas season, but we have very special events to share on Sunday, December 23rd and on Christmas Eve.
Our final Sunday service before Christmas Day falls on December 23rd and is a very special program. Celebrating the Christmas Story brings together a wonderful cast led by Joan Williams and Kimen Mitchell featuring readings, acting and song to put all of us in the Christmas spirit. Don’t miss this phenomenal production on Sunday, December 23rd at both the 9:30AM and 11:00 services.
Christmas Eve Candle Lighting Service
Our beautiful, meditative Christmas Eve Candlelighting Sevice takes place at 7pm on December 24th. Music, message, readings and meditation, plus the lighting of the twelve candles and all of us holding candles and joining in song, make this service a beautiful way to start your Christmas Eve.
Let’s get December started by joining together this Sunday. We hope to see you for a wonderful service and fellowship at Unity of Palm Harbor!
