“Unstuck and Unstoppable”

“I fairly sizzle with zeal and enthusiasm and I spring forth with a mighty faith to do the things that ought to be done by me.”  – Charles Fillmore

The title for this lesson comes from the book Adventures in Resilience:  Ignite the 12 Powers in You to Create a Radiant Life by Reverend Sharon Connors.  It highlights our power of Zeal, our inherent power that propels us forward in life.  It helps us to discover or re-discover our passion, and what brings us joy.

“I know your works:  you are neither cold nor hot.  Would that you were cold or not hot because you are lukewarm.”  Revelation 3: 15, 16

“God’s Amazing Gift of Life”

“The Life source is spiritual energy.  It is deeper and finer than electricity…It is composed of ideas, and [we] can turn on its current by making mental contact with it.” -Charles Fillmore

“The thief comes only to steal and kill, and destroy.  I come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

We celebrate our amazing gift of Life at this time every year through the birth of Jesus. We seek to follow the example that Jesus left for us to achieve fuller, more abundant life.
