We are nurturing and elevating a dynamic and vibrant Renaissance Unity and ministry during succession, transition, and transformation.
Our Transition Prayer
Dear God, Change is a constant of life, and growth is a constant of change. What began with a prayer circle has grown into a vibrant spiritual community called Renaissance Unity. We have experienced different phases and spaces throughout our thirteen years, but we have, and remain, centered in your love and empowered in your truth. We are one in you, with you and expressed through you. You are source, and all things are possible with you--our ability to create reality is infinite. Centered in this truth, we embrace the transition at Renaissance Unity with love and faith. We welcome our new minister, knowing he/she is aligned in spirit with the RU congregation, and we continue to transform lives through a consciousness of love. We welcome new musicians who provide us with creativity and inspiration and new staff members who firmly support our foundation through skill and spiritual principle. In the infinite realm of manifestation, we open our doors, widen our circle, and co-create an inclusive world where minds, hearts and hands are connected in raising the global consciousness in love. Thank you God, and so it is, Amen.
