This January 9, 2022 we will gather during our Sunday Celebration for the White Stone Ceremony.
What is a White Stone Ceremony?
You will be given a Jerusalem stone to hold in your hand while allowing Spirit to reveal a new name to be worked with throughout the year. A white stone ceremony is a time to listen to the voice of spirit or your higher power or inner-self.
There will be meditation. You will be instructed to write the word that comes to your mind on your stone.
During this time you are not listening to the “logical” brain. Meditation will guide you to listen to the spirit for your word.
The White Stone ritual is based on Revelations 2:17 (NSRV):
“Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. To everyone who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it.”
As was custom in ancient days during slavery in the Holy Land, a prisoner was given a white stone when he was freed from servitude as a token of his freedom. On his stone was a new name that he would take in this new life.
During the White Stone Mediation, you will hold a white stone in your hand, allowing the Spirit within to reveal a “new name” that is to be worked with during the year.
We offer this ceremony in January to symbolize new beginnings.
