What a blessing to celebrate two such joyous and meaningful occasions so close together this year!

What a blessing to celebrate two such joyous and meaningful occasions so close together this year!
2016 has proven to be a topsy-turvy time for so many people, it seems to me that Spirit wanted to give us all reason to have more joy than ever as we usher out this year with as much light, love and joy as possible.
Celebrating the birth of the Christ Child on Christmas is as important to the Christian world as celebrating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem is to the Jewish population.
Reflect for just a moment on the many miracles surrounding the birth of Jesus. Aid and comfort were given when none seemed available to a young couple heavy with impending birth. A brilliant light in the Heavens was able to guide wise men bearing treasured gifts, as simple peasants and their stock surrounded and nurtured in awe as the miracles unfolded.
In Jerusalem, a mighty war for right and justice was waged and won. Generally celebrated near the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah brings “God’s gift of light to the World” as the menorah is lit on each night of the celebration. Each subsequent candle rekindling the ancient mystery of how the Temple was purified and the wicks of the menorah burned for 8 days even though there was only enough sacred oil for one day’s lighting.
In each case, we witness the Light of the Divine shining brightly in the midst of courage, strength and the hope that something larger and more powerful than us is guiding the way. And I believe it always is.
Whether you’re celebrating Christmas on the 25th or lighting the menorah to celebrate Hanukkah December 24-January 1, 2017 ~ please do it with a loving and peaceful heart. Be aware and open to the many miracles present in your life right this minute and be receptive to even more in the coming year. They’re all just waiting to manifest, if you’re willing to receive.
On behalf of the Universal Brotherhood Board of Directors, our Founders, Rick and Jeni Prigmore and our Executive Director, Robin Morini, may the blessings of this holiday season richly reward you for all of your good deeds and your willing hearts.
Blessings to you and to all those you hold dear,

Thanksgiving 2016

Greetings and warm wishes to everyone on this Thanksgiving 2016!

On behalf of the entire Corporate Board of Universal Brotherhood (most especially our Founders, Rick and Jeni Prigmore), I’d like to extend warm, embracing wishes laced with gratitude and kindness to all of our esteemed Ministers and their families.

Life gets so busy these days, and time seems to just fly by for all of us; too much to do and too many demands can be stressful.

I’d like to invite all of us (me included) to take a slow deep breath as we sit around the table on Thursday, and see the love coming back to us from everyone at the table. Family, friends, co-workers; new friends and old alike all benefit from a heart-felt smile and a cheery word of ease. Then imagine those blessings extending out beyond your home and into your community, the state, the country and the entire Universe as well.

“There’s a road that’s made of memories that goes from heart to heart. A path that spans the time and many miles we’ve all been apart. There’s a bridge of special feelings made of all the joys we share, and Thanksgiving is the perfect journey of warm thoughts from here to there.”

May your journey through this most special holiday be filled with love, laughter, happy moments and wonderful food.

With love and care to us all,

   Rosemary
