From the Beloved Community News Team
By now, you’ve maybe heard about a new antiracism/multiculturalism initiative at Unity Church called SoulWork. Last fall, the Beloved Community Staff Team (BCST) with Team Dynamics held a forum to introduce us to this important work and prepare us to use a new model that intertwines faith formation and antiracism/multiculturalism. To make this work even more accessible to us, the BCST has created a series of eight brief videos from that original forum.
This first video prepares us to do the work by teaching us a spiritual practice that invites us to notice and listen. To enter into SoulWork, we recommend watching “Grounding Practice with Alfonso of Team Dynamics.”

Beloved Community Staff Team
In 2016, the Beloved Community Staff Team was formed at Unity Church to strengthen and coordinate Unity’s anti-racism and multi-cultural work, and to share the stories of this journey with the wider community. We commit to sharing the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations here at Unity and in the wider world of our faith and city. The current members of the team include Rev. KP Hong, Rev. Kathy Hurt, Barbara Hubbard, Drew Danielson, Rev. Shay MacKay, Laura Park, Angela Wilcox, Pauline Eichten, and Erika Sanders.
