Getting to the Heart of the Lesson


We know true joy when we experience the reality of God’s presence within.

The word joy is used at Christmastime so often that it is almost synonymous with the season. When we have an inner awareness of the presence of God, we experience joy. When we celebrate the birth of Christ, we celebrate that living presence born on earth. Joyful day! God’s presence can be experienced in every moment of our lives when we become aware that the reality of God never changes; it is not dependent on circumstance or season.


 AFFIRMATION: My joy is complete when I experience God’s living presence within.
