Interest in my spiritual journey has guided my steps from Baptist, Congregational, Episcopal, Unitarian Universalist and now, to Unity. Throughout this progression, I enjoyed reading the Course in Miracles or other metaphysically oriented books, so I was a “closet reader” throughout my young adulthood. Educational pursuits took me from CWSU, PLU and WSU, then to University of New Haven, Antioch and Salve Regina University in Northeastern United States. My most enjoyable coursework was Holistic Counseling, my least enjoyable, yet profitable was the MBA. Throughout life I’ve experienced my work as ministry and have found myself in new careers every 15 years. Careers include: hospital administration, social worker/management of human services non- profits, and currently I serve others as a real estate agent (my most favorite career to date.)
Secretary: Mark Delaplane
I am a 60 year old retired Army officer, Washington State employee and a parent of two beautiful children; Nicholas, 18 and Katheryn (Katie), 13. God-given talents for which I have a passion include art, photography, music, technology and writing. I play the clarinet and Native American flute, enjoy landscape photography and digital painting. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) Certificate in Creative Writing. My children re-energized my spiritual path sixteen years ago. Feeling led to provide Nicholas exposure to spiritual practices, I sought a spiritual home that would provide such exposure. In the process, I tried several denominations. None felt right. Eventually Nick, I and eventually Katie attended the Unitarian Universalist Church but it still did not feel quite right. In the meantime, my father and I had been studying A Course In Miracles. I asked what church most closely aligned with ACIM. My father said he attended the Unity Church of Morrison, Colorado and found it to be completely consistent. The next Sunday I attended Unity of Olympia, continued to attend and about two years ago made the commitment to be a member.
