Reverend Kathleen Flynn
Foundational to Unity's principles and teachings is the belief that we are individualized expressions of God; that our purpose is to give expression to God. Kathleen's desire to serve in congregational ministry emerged from a longing to share her gifts and fully express the faith that defines her - Unity. Kathleen retired from hospice chaplaincy after many years. She turned her attention to affirmatively facilitating and supporting spiritual growth or awakening of others and in doing so continues to grow in her own spiritual journey. "I am truly blessed by the Truth teachings of the Unity movement and the congregation at Unity of Roseburg. Together, we are growing and expanding our consciousness beyond the walls of our center, beyond the parameters of our community, one heart-opening experience at a time."
As a life-long learner, Kathleen embraces working with individuals and small groups in a facilitative teaching style. In her Unity classes, workshops and book studies participants experience a sense of safety for exploring the depths of their own potentiality. Kathleen began her ministry at Unity of Roseburg July 1, 2014. She received her Master’s degree in Theology from Marylhurst University (2006) and completed Spiritual Director studies at the Urban Spirituality Center (2007), in Portland OR. She was ordained an Interfaith Minister at The New Seminary, New York, NY in 2008. In August 2016 Kathleen became a licensed Unity Minister. Kathleen has lived and worked in Washington and Oregon since moving from her long time home in Alaska in 2001. She has a son, daughter, grandchildren and many others in her beloved extended family. Her interests are varied including all forms of art, Feng Shui, reading, walking, yoga. She is a volunteer with Amedysis Hospice, an active participant in Toastmasters. Kathleen is also is a mentor at Casa de Belen, a transitional housing community for homeless teens and their families.
"Be still. Be still. Be still. God in the midst of you is substance. God in the midst of you is love. God in the midst of you is wisdom." Myrtle Fillmore
