Practicing Unity Today
Unity World Day of Prayer
Our students have created posters for topics of concern in their future. These include climate change, animals, trees, the ocean, plants, and peace. These posters will be displayed in the sanctuary before and during our world day of prayer. The students are praying for these concerns with our congregation.
Youth Ministry Coordinator
Ms. Brigitte Bernhardt has been coordinating the Youth Ministry program since June 1996. She has one son, Shaun. She became interested in the spiritual education of her child and wanted to be an integral part of what he was learning. “I wanted our spiritual life to be a part of our daily life”.
During her many years as Youth Director, she has implemented many Unity curricula including the five (5) principles, the twelve (12) powers, wisdom tales, Jesus’ teachings, the wonder years living curriculum, choices and consequences, fair play, navigating through change and the awakened classroom. We include prayer, meditation, movement, games, some creative expression, sharing, and exploring questions. The goal is to learn to connect with the God or Divine Presence of our understanding and that we are seen and heard as the spiritual beings we have come here to express.
Brigitte also worked at the Safety Harbor Montessori Academy in Clearwater for 20 years. She taught ages 3-6 for most of those years and 1-3 grade for a while. Brigitte earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Recreation Therapy. She has continuously expanded her educational knowledge through Montessori conferences, Unity conferences, zoom training, and workshops addressing the development of children dealing with the stresses of our world today. Brigitte also loves yoga, hiking, camping, biking, and swimming. “ Being centered is the best way to relate and facilitate self-growth. Using yoga with children works.”
