Unity’s traditional Advent themes allow us - through meditation, prayer, and affirmation - to contemplate ways to share our most profound gifts: hope and faith, peace, love, and joy.
Advent begins on Sunday, November 27. Copies of Unity’s 2023 Advent booklet, A Christmas of Light and Peace, will be available in Unity Hall throughout Advent.
We welcome back familiar faces for Advent!
