I am using this space to introduce our new director for our children’s program. We are very excited to have Mari come on board and we look forward to families returning and new families joining us. Welcome, Mari!
Greetings Dear Ones!
I’m Ms. Mari. I am honored and excited to step into the role as the new Director of the Children’s Program for our Unity Center for Spiritual Growth! The past couple of years have been challenging and uncertain for everyone in our community. It has been especially disorienting for the children. I look forward to restoring and growing the Children’s Sunday school program. I plan to “go with the flow” and I hope to add special events to the children’s schedule as participation grows.
I suppose you are wondering who I am and what is my vision. Some of you have known me already, for many years. I am a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Permaculture Designer, and Reiki Master. I have been working with children for more than 20 years. My life’s purpose is devoted to serving God through supporting the children’s spiritual growth and preparing them for the best future possible on our blessed Earth.
On Sundays, we will continue with the Virtues Curriculum as well as explore new elements rooted in Unity values. We will spend as much time outside in the fresh air as weather permits. We will explore creativity, nature, mindful practices, spiritual lessons and practices, and we will develop healthy and loving community relationships.
I would like to encourage leadership opportunities for the children. If your child will be participating, will you please ask them to share with us what they are interested in doing? Children have so much wisdom already within them, and I feel it is important that we listen to what their vision is and then help them to grow it.
When possible, I would like to synchronize children’s special events with special events for adults so that parents can easily participate. I would like to offer support to parents, so please do let me know if there is something we might do to help.
The Children’s Program can only be as wonderful as we make it together, as a community.
I invite parents, grandparents, teachers, babysitters, adult teens, and anyone else in our community who enjoys working with children, to volunteer with us! Whether you would like to be a regular volunteer, a one-time volunteer, if you have an idea, or would like to offer a special event for children at any time, please contact me.
We appreciate your support!
The Children’s Program will resume on Sunday mornings 9:45 – 11:15 a.m. beginning Sunday, June 19. Please join us then!
See you soon!
Affirmations from last Sunday’s talk on Ruth:

You are a blessing in my life,
