Dear Friends in Unity,
Blessed Easter! Blessed Spring! Blessed You!
As you read this newsletter you will notice all the youth activities sponsored by our region. Thank you for your willingness to financially support the spiritual growth of our young folk, who by nurturing their own spirituality are nurturing the spiritual awakening of our world.
In Gethsemane Jesus the Christ prays for the realization of Oneness. It is a favorite passage of mine. His prayer could be our prayer for all children and for all of us Divine children, and also hold instruction for us.
With some editing (signified by “*italics”) John 17:16-23, can be read thus:
"For they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
O*Divine Mother/Father, sanctify them in thy truth, because Thy word is truth. Just as Thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I am sanctifying myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.
“I am not making a request for these alone, but also for the sake of those who will believe in *The Christ through their word. So that they all may be one; just as Thou, my *Divine Mother/Father, are with me, and I am with Thee, that they also be one with us….
And the *Love and Light which Thou gavest me, I gave to them; so that they may be one, just as we are one. I with them and Thou with me that they may become perfected in one; so that *they and world may know that thou *dost love them, just as thou *dost love me.”
Thank you for holding the Vision and for doing the work for Oneness, Rich
