OUR MINISTRY TEAM
Rev. Jill Carey, Senior Minister, and Kit Holmes, RScP, Associate Spiritual Leader
From Rev. Jill, Senior Minister, Easter 2018:
I am so pleased to be officially joining Unity of Wimberley as your Senior Minister. And especially pleased to be in partnership with Associate Spiritual Leader Kit Holmes (RScP)!
Kit and I knew years ago in a different place and time that we had powerful and transformative energy together, but we could never have dreamed that it would manifest like this! We are excited to be building a vision with this congregation and anticipate ever-expanding and rich spiritual experiences with Unity of Wimberley. We'll be incorporating the best of New Thought teachings and practices in everything we do. We're not sure what everything will look like, but I can give you a preview: extended training for leadership and chaplains, more classes for various interests, a new look to the music program that incorporates the familiar and the yet unseen, TWO spiritual leaders available for spiritual counseling and guidance.
There is great energy "here on the hill," and Unity of Wimberley generates a welcoming and powerful presence that will maintain and attract exactly the perfect gathering of spiritual companions to journey with.
From Kit, Associate Spiritual Leader:
It's the "energy on the hill" that brought me here to begin with and I'm honored that I get to serve the Unity of Wimberley community here once again. Rev. Jill and I both know that the real "sacred ground" of this spiritual home is within the hearts and minds of each of you. At this time of fresh and bold new beginnings, I once again extend my sincere gratitude for your love and support as we all take part in this amazing, new spiritual adventure!
