The SoulWork of Unity Church
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
The Beloved Community Staff Team (BCST) strengthens and coordinates Unity’s antiracism and multicultural work, and provides opportunities for congregants and the church to grow into greater intercultural competency. We help the congregation ground itself in the understanding of antiracism and multiculturalism as a core part of faith formation. We support Unity’s efforts to expand our collective capacity to imagine and build the Beloved Community. Here, we share the stories of this journey — the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations — both at Unity and in the wider world.
The current members of the Beloved Community Staff Team include Rev. Kathleen Rolenz, Rev. KP Hong, Barbara Hubbard, Drew Danielson, Laura Park, Rev. Karen Gustafson, Angela Wilcox, Pauline Eichten, and Erika Sanders.
