When June rolls around, we often think of celebrations—Father’s Day, graduations, and weddings. This year, one celebration holds special significance for Unity Church in Redding, Ken, and me. On June 17, Ken and I graduate as licensed Unity ministers! For the first time in its history, UCIR will have two full-fledged licensed spiritual leaders. My enthusiasm and excitement overflows.
Six years ago, Ken and I began our program originally to become Licensed Unity Teachers, then changing paths to become ministers. We have learned so much and deepened in our spiritual practices. We have matured in our leadership skills. We are grateful for the love and support you have given us as we walked this path. Thank you!
The above quote by Nelson Mandela, “Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead”, speaks to me. The celebration of a milestone, becoming fully licensed as ministers, opens the door, prepares us, for our next steps in our Unity Church in Redding ministry. I see our church ever expanding in consciousness. I see us creating new ways of offering our teachings. I see us partnering with other faith groups expanding our opportunities to share and receive spiritual wisdom. I have visions of a full sanctuary every Sunday. Of course, all of this requires your participation and help. We are a community that is loving and supportive. Let us together reach out to others who would like to be part of who we are. Let us spread the word about all UCIR offers to everyone who steps through our doors.
