Nominess for the Board of Trustees


I feel a deep connection to the Unity mission, and I would like to help in the continued growth of our Unity center.  From second grade on, I was raised going to a Unity church.  As a young child hearing the positive uplifting Unity messages, my personal relationship with God and spiritual growth was nurtured.  I wish to help, in some way, our Unity Spiritual Center be that same type of nurturing resource for all who’s paths meets ours.   I have served on the Board of Trustees for the last three years, with the last two as the secretary.   I would like the opportunity to continue serving as a member of the Board of Trustees for the next three years.





I would be honored to be of service on the Board of Trustees. Unity has provided for me a much-needed community after moving here in August of 2018. Our spiritual journeys are truly never-ending, however a big chapter in my current life began with the study of Edgar Cayce which led me to complete a distance learning course in metaphysics from the School of Metaphysics. As my perception of life and myself changed dramatically I found a resonation with the values and spirit of the Unity church in Nashville and attended there for a year before moving here to Lansing. Even though I have been here for a short time I feel welcomed, accepted, and also a need to be fulfilled. Although leadership has not come naturally to me, I have found myself in many leadership positions wherever I go, and I have come to believe that this is one of the qualities I am developing in this lifetime. I have already enjoyed leading SALT classes at Unity, and I look forward to providing my skills, talents, and service in harmony with all Unity members to continue to shine our inner Light of Truth and Love to each other and the wider community around us.


Blessings of Love and Light,

-Lee Nelson
