WHAT IS A LOVE OFFERING?
What does Love Offering Mean?
A Love Offering is a term that you will frequently hear at our Peace Center. The vast majority of events and activities that are held here at Unity in the Foothills are presented on a “Love-Offering Basis.” Considering the size of our spiritual community we truly have some awe-inspiring events.
When we pass “the love-offering baskets” at an event , please consider how the message stirs in your heart and moves your soul. We know that as we give to what spiritually feeds us, it creates a ripple that goes out into the universe blessing the world around and forming a vacuum that draws more goodness and abundance into your life.
The idea of Love-Offerings has deep roots in Unity. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore pretty much insisted on it as the way to do their work. They believed that giving a Love Offering to what spiritually fed them was an acknowledgement of God’s Love and Abundance, which was part of their experience. The sharing of “a love offering” was part of their overall prosperity program. It acknowledged the Divine Flow moving through their life as health, love, and financial abundance by giving a portion of their income to the spiritual practices and programs that inspired their minds and moved their souls (Many organizations call this tithing.)
When you attend a workshop or service that fills you with joy and inspiration, we ask that you consider giving from that place of wonder and marvel. Ask yourself if the event or message has meaning in your life? Then allow the sense of gratitude to stir in every cell of your being; letting the joy and gratitude to overflow, and then give from that place of joy and thanksgiving. The teachings shared at our services, workshops and classes have the potential to transform the way you see the world and the way you show up in it. We ask that you give from a place that you are spiritually blessed and that is affordable for you, knowing that as you give you create a ripple, even a wave, that will come back overflowing in every area of your life.
In keeping with Unity’s traditions, we invite others to experience the wonder of sharing a love offering to what spiritually feeds them. By acknowledging God’s Love and Abundance in this way, it opens the portals of the heart and mind to experience a greater good. So next time we pause to take a Love – Offering, consider how the service, workshop, or class inspires your mind and moves your soul, and share from the abundance in your life. Go to that place of remembering that Spirit is moving in you and must be released to be realized.
“Divine love, flowing through me, blesses and multiples all that I have, all that I give, and all that I receive.”
