Answers to the Question You Didn’t Know to Ask

Facilitated by Rev Jim Rosemergy with Special Music from Sahffi
Presented individually for $57 or as part of the full conference.

The pandemic has changed our lives and altered how we approach ministry and life. There is no going back to business as usual before Covid. As we emerge from this difficult time, we have been asking what the next months and years ahead will reveal. While this is a good question, it is not THE question.

In our shared journey of renewal, we will acquaint ourselves with THE question and allow our answers to shape the ministry of the 21st century.

I will draw on my forty years of ministerial experience in this workshop to assist in the renewal of our approach to ministry. Our goal is to heal, value, and unite people, so we may rejoice in the years ahead in ministry.

This is what I have discovered through the years. Ministry can assist with releasing the pain from so much change and healing, so that people feel valued and united. This shift in consciousness not only helps seekers reveal and face the challenges of human experience and spiritual life. It is a foundation of renewal for unprecedented growth and power. A renewal of consciousness is not confined to a spiritual community’s campus; it is a gift offered to the community at large.

So let it be revealed…

  • How healing really works
  • The Great Question
  • A Plan for Wholeness
  • Walk and Whisper
  • The power of leadership in times of crisis
  • The joy of gatherings of two or three
  • Why ministry is a God thing

Thought Starters

  1. As the isolation of the Covid-19 pandemic progressed, ministers, board members, and congregants often asked, “What will ministry look like when the pandemic ends? What will be the shape and form of ministry in Unity in the years to come?”

    These are important questions, but is there a better question? The questions above imply change, but is there a question that brings us back to a query that persists through the ages in the minds and hearts of ministers, board members and congregants? 

  2. Does the following statement impact your answer to the questions posed above?

    The work of ministry is not about the ministry; it is about the people.

  3. If there were deep and essential thoughts, feelings, and issues moving in those you serve, how would you discover these thoughts, feelings, and issues?

  4. What did Emilie Cady believe was the reason for all of humanity’s challenges?

  5. Ministers, Licensed Unity Teachers, and Spiritual Leaders assume many roles as they serve their fellow spiritual seekers. Of all the many things we do, what is the most important?

  6. In New Thought, in the area of human challenge called Prosperity, we often speak of demonstration. We demonstrate healing, we get healed; we demonstrate a new job, we get employed; we demonstrate/we get …

    Would it have made a difference if our emphasis was not acquisition, but generosity, not getting, but giving? Consider a generous congregation rather than one who demonstrates. Or perhaps we redefine demonstration to be giving rather than getting. What effect would this redefinition and shift in consciousness have on our Movement?

  7. “I will not ask you to do anything that I am not willing to do.”  Never has a sentence with a double negative had so much meaning. Have you ever said this to those you serve? This statement defines the most important activity of a spiritual leader. What is it?

  8. We are Unity! The name of our Movement was a gift from God to Charles Fillmore—A gift to us, a gift to the world. Before we Zoom together during our upcoming conference, please hold the word Unity tenderly in your mind and heart. Consider all the words that can be derived from unity. Ponder Unity, explore the word as if it has within it a hidden treasure … because it does!

I can hardly wait to begin our adventure together. I wish there was a way we could be together holding hands, holding one another, brimming with love for one another and for the joyous work that is ours to do. For now, it is not to be, but as you can see, we have more than enough to do in a couple of hours. Buckle up! I will not ask you to do anything that I am not willing to do.  

In Joyous Service,

Rev. Jim Rosemergy
