Joy releases holiday pressure | RELIGION NOTES

Feeling the pressures of the holiday season? Can you take time out to consider the source of such pressures and whether they must apply to you? “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1: 31)

Nothing, then, except good is connected to spiritual joy. On Sunday, Dec. 16, the Christian Science service considers the creative power and source that provides the foundation for celebration and joy and how putting this first releases you from pressures that might otherwise separate you from the good you are doing. “From Love and from the light and harmony which are the abode of Spirit, only reflections of good can come” (Science and Health).

The service begins at 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at 15910 Highway 525 (north of Bayview and across from Useless Bay Road). Everyone is welcome at all services and also at the special Christmas Hymn Sing at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 23, following the service. Call 341-1630 for details.
