Fired after 18 months, divorced, ministerial credentials removed, Dr. Gary was the poster child on how-to-fail-at-ministry.
Reeling from this, Dr. Gary, like a lot of us, blamed everyone else and made it ok to blame others when he was feeling diminished. After receiving these words from a wise monk…
“No one is against you. Make your path about proving this truth, and you will discover what wholeness really is.” Muhru
His life, career, spiritual path and trajectory pivoted. Watch his story and then tune in Sunday, May 26th to hear more.
Mother’s Day is a tradition that began in 1872 with two women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis. It began as a way to promote peace – mothers standing for peace. Although it eventually morphed from an activist movement into an honoring of motherhood, the original purpose bears exploration.
Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to honor the gentle,
restorative and powerful Presence of the embodiment of compassion – the Divine
Feminine that indwells every heart, male and female.
What if you don’t have a mom in your life any longer to celebrate? Or what if your biological mom was not a figure that inspired peace in your life, but rather fear, insecurity, anxiety?
Hopefully there was and is a mothering aspect of Spirit playing a role in your life, bringing about peace and healing. If you want to honor your mom or a special mom-figure, pick up a bouquet of flowers, by donation, this Sunday. Proceeds benefit the youth summer camp scholarship fund.
Holidays can be difficult for those of us who grew up in dysfunctional families. Find what mothering aspect you can celebrate in your life. We send you love ♥

Unity Spiritual Center Spokane (USCS) is on a path to becoming a mission-centric (rather than a minister-centric) ministry. This requires group awareness of the mission and a commitment to align decisions and actions with that mission. To assist USCS in its progress toward becoming mission-centric, a process called Conscious Conversations was initiated in the
Spring of 2018. Conscious Conversations is a heart-centered, person-to-person inquiry about what is moving, evolving and emerging within a community. These conversations served to increase connection and engagement within USCS and to explore USCS’s impact as a spiritual community.
Questions were open-ended, allowing respondents to express themselves authentically. Members of the Evolutionary Council, a Board-appointed team of 15, conducted conversations with 130 people connected to USCS through either membership or attendance. Conversations focused on
two general areas: 1) How individual respondents have been impacted by the ministry and 2) Suggestions on how the ministry could more fully evolve, thereby deepening its impact. The Evolutionary Council combined and analyzed the results, identifying common themes as well as unique “outlier” ideas. Those results are provided below, supplemented by transformational stories and ideas from specific respondents.
Read the report.
Join Rev. Jane to explore the questions, in depth, at three monthly gatherings.
