The presidential election is over. We've just completed our fall faith series and deepening our expression of love for no reason. So, what's next? Where do we go from here?

This year our theme is "Discover the Power Within You". Regardless of what's happening in the world around us, each moment offers us the opportunity to ignite that power and make a difference in our own life, in the lives of others and in our world. We can start making a difference today, where we are and with what we have. We have gifts to share, we have time to give and we have love to offer.

Sprinkled throughout our e-news are many opportunities where you can start making a difference today. As you read on, ask yourself, "what gifts can I offer and how would I love to give?"

Join us on Sunday as Rev. Patricia shares about "What's Next."

Peace and blessings,
Unity Church of Overland Park

Reverend Patricia's Blog
p bass Who Won? - For months we've been debating the question, "Who's going to win the presidential election?" We have been barraged by predictions from pundits, statistics from polls, rantings and ravings from the media. The suspense is now over. So, who won? Did your candidate win? Did the other candidate win? Did you win? Did you lose? Here's what I know. This is our country and we all win or lose together. more
