(Positive!) Change in our Youth Ed Dept.
On July 1st, Marla Durden will become our Youth Ed Director. You will continue to enjoy the dynamic presence of Leah Mann, as she will be a part of Marla’s awesome support team, along with Rose, James, Louis (yes, he’s coming back, too!), Sandi, Anne, Lori and Heidi. Thank you, all!
Marla has shared her extensive gifts in Youth Ed since January. When she was offered another youth & family directorship elsewhere, Leah thought so highly of her that she stepped down, so that Marla would remain at Seattle Unity.
Leah will be delighted to support and to follow Marla’s wise and magical lead. SU youth will be blessed!
I can’t think of higher praise for someone than to step aside for them! Thank you, Leah, and welcome, Marla!
Marla worked at Unity of Houston and has a passion and joy in service to our youth.
What is New Thought? A Rev Karen Recommendation
If you are an Amazon Prime member, Rev. Karen came upon a video that was quite good, called “What is New Thought?”. It was made in 2014 and includes appearances by Wally “Famous” Amos, Della Reese, Deepak Chopra, Joe Vitale, Faith Rivera and many more. Here’s the trailer on YouTube. I’m sure if you’re not an Amazon Prime member, it’s available elsewhere for you, although it isn’t on Netflix – I checked.

Looking to the Future
Our iconic Tapestries which grace our current Sanctuary were designed and created specifically for this space, which is significantly larger than what our new Sanctuary space will be. They were also designed to be displayed together, to represent our core value of honoring all spiritual paths. They physically will not fit in our new, smaller Sanctuary space. more info
On August 12th at noon, we will hold a meeting open to all who love and honor our Tapestries and Altars, and will be looking at two issues concerning them.
1) Knowing that we will be saying farewell to these Tapestries, how can we best honor them as we say farewell to them?
2) What is the best place for our Tapestries to find a new home?
This meeting will be facilitated by Debbie Ward.
Youth & Families
The Youth program is trying a new arrival method for the summer.
Please drop all 1st grade to Uniteen kids with Marla in the Meditation Garden (If it is raining, meet her in the Library.) We will be “Hosting Sunshine” which will be an opening circle of affirmations and questions (sometimes an art activity). From there, we will go to our classrooms and that is where pick up will be unless otherwise noted.
Preschoolers will still get dropped off downstairs with Sandi in the Nursery.
A great big thank you from the Prayer Shawl Team!
They set a “pie-in-the-sky” goal of $500 for their first-ever donation day. This would keep them in yarn for prayer shawls for more than a year!
And..tah-dah! They made their goal, within a few dollars, and they are DELIGHTED, and very grateful to all of you for your support for the Prayer Shawl Program.

Bookstore Grand Sale!
The bookstore is preparing for On The Move. The first step to helping to reduce the stock is, of course, to hold a sale! So, savvy seller Cindi is doing that very thing!
