Greetings, Unity Family!
The Role of Regional Representative
Helping Ministries in 2 Ways
There are 2 ways in which Rev. Greg, as our Regional Representative, is available to serve and support our Great Lakes Unity ministries and leaders:
At no cost, as a ministry leadership consultant:
Take a moment here to pause… to remember how it feels when you step outdoors and feel the earth beneath your feet, the breeze on your face, or the hear the sounds of nature all around you. What is stirred in you as you walk a forest path, swim in a lake or ocean, or take a rest in the shade against the sturdy trunk of tree? For myself, there is a great sense of being welcomed and enfolded by some very dear friends. It feels as if I re-discover, each time, a deep reservoir of both longing and fulfillment within me that pours from my every cell like a great big YES!
In 2019, I was a chaperone for the fall Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) rally. I have attended rallies before; however, this one seemed different. There were many challenging issues with the grounds (so I thought), the parking, older cabins, the long walks to the common area, and limited Internet service. I felt somewhat stressed and distracted by these issues.
“Forget the former things;
Do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
And streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
As we near the two year mark of ministering through a pandemic, I hear a lot of ministries talking about Vision.
After a two-year absence the Great Lakes Regional Conference is back live in Moline Illinois. The Conference team and Board recognize with the continued issues related to the ever-changing Covid health crisis that some may not be comfortable traveling or attending in person. Acknowledging this the Conference will be offered both live and in person as well as virtually. Knowing that not all aspects of the Conference can be offered virtually we set a lower price for those attending online.
A few things to note…
