It has been a long-standing tradition in Unity and other New Thought churches around the world to begin the New Year with "The Burning Bowl Ceremony." A dear friend of Mary's and mine, Alan Cohen, titled a Chapter in one of his books, "You Can't Steal Home with Your Foot on Third." This Sunday is about prayerfully releasing the past in order to more fully embrace the present and the future. It's a very meaningful way to bring peace through release. And, it is the perfect prequel to the "Honoring Our Past" workshop that will follow the next weekend.
