This week, on the Fourth, we celebrate the birth of our nation, as an independent, constitutional republic! We light fireworks and sing songs of freedom. The question then arises as to how free we really are! In Unity, we say that Truth IS freedom! However, KNOWING Truth and LIVING it are not the same! To live Truth, we must stand firmly in our understanding of it, yet be ready and willing to allow it to grow and expand. This takes dedication and courage and a willingness to both stand strong and surrender to Truth at the same time! Enjoy the fireworks and the picnics, but remember that the Christ in YOU is the TRUE author of this gift of freedom.
