Diversity Inside Out
Prior to entering the ministry, Jim Lee was a successful National Marketing Representative with IBM. His mission for transforming lives began in 1986 with his position as Executive Director of Youth at Risk where he served the needs of inner-city youth.Inspired to pursue ministry, he completed Unity School for Religious Studies in 1994 and subsequently serviced on the Board of Trustees for Unity Worldwide Ministries including the role of chair for one year.
Lisa Lee was the Director of Youth Ministry and Adult Education at Renaissance Unity for over 15 years. She presented the “Spirit’s HeArt” workshop at the 2012 National Unity Conference on the role of the arts in spiritual development. She became a Certified Spiritual Educator and a Licensed Unity Teacher in 2013.
In a world where the tension between differences is at its height, it is clear that the transcendence of separation is the major quest of the 21st century spiritual worker. As individualized expressions of the Divine, we are learning to integrate our uniqueness with oneness and to appreciate and honor a multi-textured nature of unity over the safety of sameness. The true essence of community can be found in our capacity to meet each other at depth beyond tolerance, transcending yet including our personal opinions and beliefs.
This workshop approaches diversity from the inside out, beginning with relating effectively with “the other” within. Through discussion, the power of story and spiritual practices, we will create an inclusive foundation for reaching across the great divides present in our culture today and develop new capacities for being spiritual ambassadors of compassion, peace, and true communion.
