“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over….For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
The reason this Spiritual Community continues to keep its doors open is the result of those who give of their time, talents and treasures. I want to honor a congregant who has “given” over and over again in so many ways, over so many years! It is our beloved BARBARA ELY! Barbara has been responsible for creating and serving in so many areas that have enhanced and grown Unity by the Shore!
One of the many “roles” she plays is that of her production of our “Flying High” Newsletter which she started in 1988. She studied at Brookdale Community College the fundamentals of typesetting, design and layout.
Barbara said, “I have enjoyed working on the Newsletter and I have been blessed in many ways through my work and relationship with the church community. Now, I think it is time for others to receive the great blessings, and for our church to hone fresh and new creative ideas.”
The November-December 2013 “Flying High” is Barbara’s final issue. She would be happy to sit down with anyone who steps up to continue the “Flying High”Newsletter.
And I ask… who will “come up,” who will come up “higher” to know the joy of continuing this blessed service?
Again, Barbara, we honor you and thank you for your years of undertaking in this area and we thank you for all you continue to do in supporting Unity by the Shore!
