Sunday Service | January 3 | 9:30 AM CT
The White Stone Ceremony is a “ritual” type service based on a scripture from Revelation 2:17: “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.”
The stone symbolically represents freedom. This was the custom in ancient days during slavery in the Holy Land, and a prisoner was given a white stone when he was freed from slavery as a token of his freedom. His new name was on his stone in his new life.
During the White Stone meditation, you’ll be invited to hold a white stone (or another stone of your preference) in your hand, allowing Spirit within to reveal the words that represent your highest intention or a name for your new spiritual identity in the new year. You will write those words or your new name upon the stone and then keep the stone as a reminder throughout the upcoming year.
