This Sunday, July 10th: Congratulations, Reverend Diane!
This Sunday, July 10th, in-person at Metropolist, we will have a special Service to honor Reverend Diane, with a reception to follow – please join us!
Rev. Karen writes: The best part of attending the Unity Worldwide Ministry Convention was being a witness to Diane Robertson’s ordination ceremony. She has worked diligently across the past five years to achieve this milestone while at the same time overseeing the building project as well as attending to ministerial duties!
Her dream is to travel to Europe and I am inviting the community to contribute to this goal with a donation. You can send a card and/or gift to:
Rev. Diane Robertson
508 Yale Avenue N, #191
See you then!
About Rev. Diane Robertson:
Diane graduated from Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute’s (UWSI) education program with a Masters of Divinity; and was ordained as a Unity minister at Unity Village on June 13th, 2022.
For the past five years, UWSI’s education program and the ministerial path has been a major focus for Diane. Even prior to application and acceptance into these programs, Diane (and all candidates) had to complete 370 hours of Unity prerequisite classes, in addition to a Bachelor’s degree. Once enrolled, there were numerous papers and many hours of study. All candidates on the ministerial path must also complete a rigorous program of progress interviews once or twice a year throughout the program. Each progress interview is with multiple teams of two to three ministers. The progress interviews are intended to ensure each ministerial candidate is making satisfactory progress in over 36 different topic areas!
Diane’s educational path has overlapped her time at Seattle Unity, as she joined the staff in 2014 as Program Director. Since then she has worn many different hats over the years, serving in the areas of Pastoral Care, Business and Financial Management, Human Resources, IT, Volunteer coordination, and our new building project. Rather than continuing to add additional job titles after her name, Rev. Karen asked for permission from UWM to provide Diane with the title of Associate Minister since she was then already in the ministerial program and serving in a ministerial capacity.
Diane’s call to ministry began in childhood and she will share more about that on the 10th. She is incredibly grateful for the support of the Seattle Unity community and looks forward to celebrating together!
