Wouldn't it be great if we could rid ourselves of grudges, anxieties, worries and stress?

We can at a traditional Burning Bowl service, which entails consciously letting go of whatever no longer serves our highest good.

Unity Church of Clearwater plans such a service at 7 p.m. New Year's Eve in the sanctuary at 2465 Nursery Road, Clearwater.

As part of the ceremony, the public is invited to make a list of problematic personal behaviors, situations, addictions, illnesses, habits, places and people, set it alight and release the issues as paper turns to smoke and ash.

Admission is free.

Call (727) 531-0992. Visit unityofclearwater.org.
