Dear Friend of Unity on the Bay,
In its ninety-year history, Unity on the Bay has been grateful to serve as a conduit through which the worldwide Unity movement has been blessed by outstanding, credentialed leadership. Year after year, we have supported dedicated individuals in becoming Licensed Unity Teachers and, in many cases, ordained Unity Ministers.
Especially in South Florida, many Unity communities are led and influenced by leaders who once served at Unity on the Bay. It is an honor and joy to be able to support the Unity movement in this way.
During the month of December, we are going to make one of our greatest contributions yet. Rev. Elizabeth Longo has accepted the invitation to become the Senior Minister of Unity Church of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Her service there will begin this Christmas season. We love and congratulate Rev. Elizabeth on this well-deserved milestone in her ministerial career.
Next Sunday, December 11, Rev. Elizabeth will speak at both the 9 and 11 a.m. services. These will be her last two talks delivered as Associate Minister of Unity on the Bay.
Rev. Elizabeth has been a member of the staff at Unity on the Bay for nearly 13 years. For the past 8 years she has served as Associate Minister. Rev. Elizabeth has wound her way around each of our hearts with her humorous, light-hearted, inspiring and powerful Sunday messages and she has poured a heart of love into each of our lives through her compassionate, pastoral presence.
You are invited to join your spiritual community in celebrating the light and love of Rev. Elizabeth following the 11 a.m. service on Sunday, December 11. Join us for food, fellowship and celebration in the Courtyard.
We want to assure you that the staff and Board of Trustees stand confidently with you as we move through this time of change with grace, peace and poise. We are blessed with strong leadership that is mutually loving and respectful of one another and our community. If you need personal spiritual support from a minister during this time of transition, please let us know. Unity on the Bay is here for you.
Please join us in holding Rev. Elizabeth, our staff and Board, and all who are served by Unity on the Bay in prayer. Rev. Elizabeth, we love you, we bless you, we behold the Christ in you, and we see you doing great things!
Chris Jackson, Senior Minister
Eddie Dominguez, President
