Rev. Rosemary Hyde
As a long-time student of Unity and now an ordained interfaith minister, I deeply appreciate the opportunity to participate in and help lead the vibrant, loving community that is Unity Center of Peace. I am excited about the rising energy in our community, and am looking forward to helping to build a deeply caring spiritual family that welcomes diversity and bubbles with joyful service. I anticipate wonderful opportunities to bask in Spirit and to celebrate seasons and passages of earthly and human life. I also envision with great pleasure our growth as a center both for Unity spirituality and for One Spirit Interspiritual learning opportunities. In addition to my work with Unity Center of Peace, I am also serving as senior minister of One Spirit Ministries, the online interspiritual prayer and pastoral outreach arm of One Spirit Learning Alliance in New York.
The third student of One Spirit Learning Alliance on our ministry team, Gregory serves as the Director of Youth Education. A long time educator, he is also a practitioner of non-violent communication, empathetic listening and organizational development through dynamic facilitation. As a young student of the martial arts, he was challenged by his master to study meditation from all cultures & traditions.and choose a practice to incorporate into his life. He bows to his master's wisdom with deep gratitude. If you catch him beaming, it's because Spirit is filling him with Divine Love. Wahoo! What a great gift! Thank you, God!
