Mentoring at Unity: A Path to Deeper Connection
Unity Church has a new mentor program that is now available to visitors and new members! What can a mentor offer? A mentor is available as a guide and a resource in the congregation. They pledge to meet at least once a month face to face, and be available for ongoing questions and advice. Each mentor/mentee team can decide what is most helpful — to have a buddy with whom to attend services and events, or a partner with whom to discuss Unitarian Universalism and each other’s spiritual journeys. Each pair makes a commitment to work together for at least six months. If you have questions, or would like to request a mentor, please stop by the Welcome Table in the Parish Hall or email Rev. Lisa Friedman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spirit Map Class
Did you choose to purchase a Spirit Map report after the congregational survey last spring? Wondering what to do with those results? Join Spiritual Director Sarah Cledwyn for two upcoming opportunities to dig deeper into your strengths and opportunities.
The wonderful thing about your Spirit Map results is that they are the perfect starting point to tailor a spiritual practice that works for you, help you gain insight about where to focus your growth efforts for the greatest traction, and move you to the next level of spiritual maturity... if you use them. Come to a one-time, free introductory session on Wednesday, October 4, about your Spirit Map results and what to do with them now. This session will give you a re-orientation into your results, what they mean, and how to use them. The introductory session will be followed by a six week class running on Thursdays from October 12-November 16. In this course we will delve even deeper into your results and how to translate them into individual spiritual practices in a supportive environment.
What if you haven't taken the inventory and are curious? You can find out more about Spirit Map at www.spiritmap.org/individuals.html. Or visit bit.ly/spiritmap17to purchase a Spirit Map report at the specially discounted rates for class participants. There are two reports available; either will work for the class. Once you purchase a report, you’ll receive a link to access the Spirit Map inventory. Inventories will have to be completed by September 26 in order to be ready for the introduction session on October 4. Questions? Contact Sarah Cledwyn at 651-699-9948 or Laura Park email@example.com.
