Board Announcement, Nov. 4, 2015
New Minister Rev. Julie Montague to begin Jan. 10, 2016

It is accomplished!
We have done the work by allowing spirit to work through us and we are experiencing the results. Our wonderful new minister, Julie Montague, is on her way in January. We aren't lucky she is coming, we are ready!

This is a time of gratitude and rejoicing.  We have so much to be grateful for and it is important to take the time to celebrate.  ... and reflect on all of the synchronicities that have taken place to get us here.

Sometimes looking back can be helpful especially when we look back to find the good.  Some things that seem hard and challenging in retrospect we can find that those very things have moved us forward in ways we never could have imagined. Take a few moments this week and reflect on the last few years and see if you can think of the things we have done to bring new energy into the church.

Working with our dear friend Kathy Long these past two years has blessed our community in so many ways I think it would be great if we all sent her thank you emails to let her know! I know that my life has been enriched by her guidance and loving support. Call the office and Jacie will give you her address.

Let's also take a few moments to send blessings and loving thoughts to all of the speakers who have blessed us with their messages over the last few years, they have sustained us and kept us going while we have been without a minister.

Keep Julie in your prayers as she is moving a long way from her family to be with her spiritual family here and will need our joyful and loving energy during this time.

Love,
Micki LePla, Board of Trustees President

 

From the Board, Oct. 7, 2015


Thank you everyone for your energy and input during this time of transition for our spiritual community!  We have so many wonderful opportunities in front of us as well as all the wonderful things already accomplished.  Make sure you take the time to appreciate and celebrate the completion of the goals we have set for ourselves and our community here at Unity of Blue Water.

The search committee is still going strong and are looking forward to having Julie Montague share her message and workshop with us at the end of the month. For some this will be the first time meeting Julie and for others it will be a reunion.  Although Julie is our only candidate at this time, she is a strong one at that and we are fortunate to be able to consider her for our minister!

Another wonderful class is coming our way this month.  The whole board will be taking the Boundaries and Our Virtues class and we highly recomend it to our team leaders and congregation.

We also will be able to see the much anticipated movie A Chorus in Miracles.  Yes that is A CHORUS in Miracles, the course is celebrating its 50th aniversary by offering this movie experience and our spiritual community is one of the places around the country to be lucky enough to show it.  So tell your friends!

At this months stewardship meeting we will be asking for input and going into disernment.

Enriching our spiritual home

by Micki LePla, Board President

So many wonderful things are happening at Unity of Blue Water!

Your board has been hard at work creating a full time ministry and making our spiritual home ready for our new wonderful minister. Some of the progress we have made is getting clear about our finances and stream lining the financial report.  We have new direction and organization for our accounts and have started an account for a minister sustainability fund.  This will enable us to be secure when we hire our full time minister. We have written our love messages to our new spiritual leader on the walls of her or his office and will lovingly seal them there with paint soon.

We are looking at replacing all or some of the pews with lovely, comfortable chairs to make the space we have more user-friendly and to give new life to our spiritual home.  I know some of you are having some difficulty with this decision – know that I am one with you, but I have decided to move my stake for the good of our spiritual center. 

Feel free to come to me with any questions you have regarding this or anything else. I would like you to know that you have a very dedicated and willing board of trustees and it is our pleasure to serve.
