Greetings !!!name!!!,

Board Chair's Message

During this time of year, many are celebrating graduations, weddings and family reunions.

World AWAKE sends out congratulations to many of you who are going through ordination, graduating this month and witnessing loved ones getting married.

Several of you learned last month that World AWAKE is delighted to be collaborating with All Faiths Seminary International.

Many of AFSI’s ministers and students are becoming members of World AWAKE and sharing with us their amazing gifts and talents. Some will be teaching classes and others are offering electives. You are cordially invited to take any of the classes, workshops and events being offered.

There will be various other collaborations in the future. In return, World AWAKE offers a platform of promoting, supporting and empowering our members. We also provide a professional atmosphere by encouraging continued education, ongoing dialogue to the Interfaith/InterSpiritual movement and resources to best facilitate our members work in their respective communities.

If you are a member of World AWAKE, you are welcomed to review our Facilitator/Class Submission form to offer a class.
Blessings and Gratitude
Rev. Rhonda Schienle
