A Message from Unity Worldwide Ministries
Liaison to Canada Region, Rev. Russell Heiland

September 2023


Hello - I'm Rev. Russell Heiland, the Unity Worldwide Ministries Board of Trustees liaison to the Canada Region.  I serve as Sr. Minister of Unity of Fairfax, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C.  And, like many of you, I am a worker committed to raising the consciousness of humanity through the teachings of Unity.

I have the pleasure of knowing several of the leaders in Unity Canada's spiritual communities and know how powerfully and effectively Unity in Canada is making meaningful impacts in people’s lives.

As liaisons to regions, UWM Trustees are tasked with serving as bridges between the regions and the UWM Board.  If there are issues or opportunities to share between the regions and the UWM, we are available to serve as conduits of that sort communication.

Additionally, and maybe more importantly, the role of the liaison is to prayerfully support the regions and uphold the consciousness of gratitude for the many ways the regions shine the light of Divine Love in the world.

So, with a grateful heart, I say to the Unity Canada Region, thank you for being Unity’s “Northern Lights!”
