Editor’s Note: Unity Worldwide Ministries has several paths toward ordination. Many of our Unity leaders may want to know more about the various pathways and what the students are experiencing on their journey toward becoming a Unity minister. This is the first in a series of periodic posts that will give voice to current seminary students as they share their experiences and process.
Now that we know the vitality of the Earth is declining every day, the question becomes, “I’m just one person. How can I make a difference?”
According to Lynne Twist, co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance, “The answer starts by first asking, ‘Who do we need to be?’ And I think who we need to be are people who know that the decisions and choices we make now impact the future of life for the next hundred years. Everybody alive today has a role to play.”
My grandson asked, “How come you never get upset?” I reflected for a moment and responded by saying, “When people get upset, it is difficult to know what to say or do.” As a teacher of tools for tough conversations, I have applied principles that take me from a place of shutting down around conflict to a place of purpose in resolving conflict.
In October of 2000 I was taking a Spiritual Gifts workshop. The results showed that the gift of Faith was coming into play. I wondered what that was all about. I was soon to find out. In December, after a fall on the ice, it was discovered that I had a rare, aggressive and often fatal type of cancer in my left knee. I was thankful for the workshop and the awareness of the gift of faith.
