World Day of Prayer 2017
“I am peace in the midst
of all matters.”
Unity of Greater Hartford joined with Unity nationally and held several services and activities on September 13 and 14. More than 70 people attended one or more sessions and all felt inspired to Pray Peace, Be Peace, Do Peace!
On Wednesday evening we held a Prayer Service which included wonderful live music from our Music Director Carolyn Fisher and the Choir and also a Peace Anointing by the Prayer Chaplains. As congregants came up to be anointed, the Prayer Chaplains affirmed
“You are an instrument of God’s Peace in the world.”
On Thursday from 7 am to 7 pm, Prayer Chaplains and others held a continuous Prayer Vigil reading the first names of those requesting prayer. These prayers are now on their way to Silent Unity where they will be prayed with for 30 days.
At 6 pm, Renee of Yoga Vine held a special Yoga class focusing on Peace.
At 7:30 pm, we held a short prayer service followed by an outdoor Candle Light Procession. The procession ended with Ed Cleveland playing gongs that washed over us as we said the Unity Prayer for Protection. We then enjoyed a scrumptious dessert party in the Community Room!
