“Bring Back the Light” by Gypsy
From November through January, religions around the world celebrate lights and the return of the light in various ways. In Rev. Melanie’s talk “A New Life”, she discusses the different faith traditions’ light celebrations at this time of year and what they mean to us individually and personally.

Enjoy this playlist of music celebrating winter solstice, also known as Yule. Notice how many of the songs have been adapted between the pagan and Christian faiths and how similar the messages are between the two. At the time when pagans are celebrating the rebirth of the “sun” and the light returning, Christians celebrate the birth of the “Son of God” who they say came to light the way.
Although much is known about Christianity in American culture and globally, pagan holidays and beliefs are often not well understood and even misunderstood. However, both pagan and Christian traditions are intended to light the way of a life of peace, love and joy.

“Breathe”, written by Karen Ducker, performed by our own Asha Lightbearer.
Breath is life force, Spirit moving into and through us. When we breathe, life flows through us.
We all want to feel vital, alive, peaceful and full of purpose. When we breathe consciously and purposefully, we release nervous energy, anxiety, fear and stress and breathe in peace, purpose, love, and compassion.
When we breathe, we release our hectic pace and claim peace. We slow our minds and bring our focus back to the present moment so that we can perceive and act from a more balanced place.

Asha has some fun with this song!
Can family visits during the holidays sometimes get a bit stressful? Not if you keep your mind on what makes you smile (chocolate, wine, and men!)
