White Stone Ceremony
January 8, 2023, at 11:00 AM
The White Stone Ceremony ceremony is a ritual that is practiced in some Unity churches. In this ritual, each participant is given a small white stone, which is inscribed with their name or a word that symbolizes their spiritual growth and development.
The white stone ceremony is based on a passage from the Bible, in which the apostle John describes a vision of the heavenly city, in which each person is given a white stone with a new name inscribed on it. In this vision, the white stone is seen as a symbol of purity and innocence, and it represents the person's spiritual growth and transformation.
In the Unity tradition, the white stone ceremony is seen as a way of affirming the person's connection to the divine and their spiritual growth and development. By receiving a white stone with their name or a symbol of their spiritual growth inscribed on it, the person is affirming that they are moving forward on their spiritual path, and that they are becoming more attuned to the divine presence in their lives.
The white stone ceremony is often performed as part of a special service or ceremony, and it may be accompanied by other rituals and practices, such as meditation, prayer, and music. We perform the white stone ceremony once a year, around the New Year, as a way of affirming each person's intention to continue their spiritual growth and development in the coming year.
