With overflowing gratitude and a complexity of emotion, I must let you know of an opportunity I have been offered, and have accepted. I am being named the next Vice President of Silent Unity, Unity’s 24/7 worldwide prayer ministry headquartered at Unity Village, in Missouri. My final day serving as minister of Unity of San Antonio will be Sunday, January 8, 2017.
You must know that I would have to be pulled by a compelling vision to leave my cherished Unity of SA. In future years, I will look back upon these thirteen years with deep appreciation, recalling tender moments with you, marking important life passages; shifts from only-human awareness when I witnessed your claim on your divine identity; your audacious courage, compassion, and conviction through all manner of circumstances. I will remember that, through high times and low times, we walked together in spiritual integrity.
Always, I will cherish you, for you gave me the precious gift of your trust. Always, I will bless you, for you fed me with your dreams.
As I broaden my ministry to support a worldwide commUNITY, I remain ever in the embrace of you, my dear, wonderful Unity of SA that opened my heart, transformed my life, and celebrated my divine identity.
Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett
