Invitation to Sunday’s talk, with Rev. Denese Shellink

Making Room for Grace

with Rev. Denese Shellink

Grace is the direct experience of the Divine presence within us. We all share in God’s Grace. Grace flows in and through each of us, freely. As we allow the Grace of God to fill our lives, we begin to view life from a place of wholeness and connection and our vision is clearer, our horizon expanded. It’s our connection to the source of love, peace, joy, and strength. So what keeps us from experiencing this Grace? Come and explore this with us this Sunday.

Rev. Denese Schellink, is an Ordained Unity minister working in active and thriving ministries for over 25 years throughout Unity Worldwide Ministries. She is a woman who is passionate about creating an awakened world and her mission is transforming lives, one heart at a time. She has served more than 13 ministries as a Transitional Consultant, supporting ministries with best practices for organizations and deepening Leadership Development. She also ministers as a Master Certified Coach for the Quantum Living Process and is also trained in the Integral Ministry Certification Program.

Member Appreciation


Sarah Jones

Sarah Jones deserves a big shout out for all the beautiful ways she shows up for our community. Sarah moved to Bend a few years ago from San Diego, leaving her corporate job for a simpler, quieter life. She joined our Unity board a year ago and has taken over many bookkeeping tasks to help our current treasurer, Susan. She is close to finishing her extensive training to become a Unity Spiritual Director/Companion. She was a huge help while I was out of the country for 6 weeks by stepping up to be the go to person for classes and events happening while I was away. And, she is one of the people stepping up to launch our new Sunday Morning Meditation beginning this Sunday. Sarah is a quiet presence with a huge heart and a compassionate listener. One of her many super powers is serving and supporting others. We are so blessed to have you as a Unity family member Sarah! We are grateful for all you do 💕🌸.
