This first Sunday of Advent, we are invited to celebrate the indwelling spiritual power of Faith. It is the perceiving power of the mind linked with the power to shape substance. It is the spiritual assurance of that which is yet unseen and/or the seemingly impossible. We are invited to LIVE our faith on a moment-to-moment, daily basis, thereby strengthening it. We are invited to be conscious of how we are using, thereby learning how to direct it in ways that will be in harmony with our highest good.
