Great Lakes Unity 2021 Conference- Adventures in Resilience: Deepening our Lives Together by Rev. Ray Nelson

Wed, 09/01/2021 - 1:35pm -- ccousineau


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…

Ever Had One of Those Days? by Rev. Cindy Yamamoto

We’ve all experienced those ‘Murphy’s Laws’ kind of days. Admit it. Even the most spiritually awake
and connected people have days where nothing seems to go right. It makes sense. We live in a very
busy world with a lot of moving parts and people. So many things that are not in our control. I had one
of those days yesterday. Is it a coincidence that I’m leaving on vacation today? I think not.

Hungering for God- Feeding the Spirit by Rev. Christina Garza

Food is a cornerstone of human existence and interaction.  Food is a connector.  It essentially is a ritualistic, centering process of sacred connection.  One that we enact daily and more profoundly at times on holidays or special occasions.  I think of the late great Anthony Bourdain who deeply believed in the power of food.  He is quoted as saying “Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.”


See the Good in All Things; See God in Everything. by Rev. Wilma Taylor-Costen, GLR YFM Liaison

See the Good in All Things; See God in Everything.Several months ago, while participating in a Zoom meeting, I noticed a sign hanging on the wall behind a participant's head. From the camera's distance, it appeared to be an eye chart, the kind that is used in an optometrist’s office. I could read the larger letters; however, some words I could not make out. It was a business meeting, and I should have been focusing on the topic at hand, not looking at the furnishing of his home. However, it was something about that sign that was calling out to me.

"Legacy to Creation" by Carl Nawrot, Board Treasurer, GLR

The genesis of this blog goes back to a day last month after a seven-inch snowfall. I was spending time in our backyard shoveling a section to allow our Jack Russell Terrier space to take care of business without having to be in snow up to her belly. Shovel in hand, I began to uncover small patches of grass in the midst of the mass of snowy white crystals. This got me to thinking, we have lived in this house and walked this yard for the last sixteen years. Before that, at least three owners of this property preceded us, walking around that same yard.
