Some of you are aware that I have been the Bookstore Manager since shortly after Rev. Palmer's arrival at Unity Church of Practical Christianity. I will be stepping back from this position at the end of July. Barbara Thompson has enthusiastically agreed to take the position, with the approval of Rev. Palmer, beginning Aug 1.
I would like to take a moment to thank all those volunteers who have made it possible to open the door of the bookstore to customers. Our Cashier Supervisor is B.J. Remi. Sandy Taylor and Sharon Moore have been volunteering since last year. Peyton, B.J.'s granddaughter, stepped up as a cashier this summer, but she is returning to college. We recently gained a new volunteer: Sharon Gary. During the week, Julianne Tutko handles the cashier duties for the bookstore.
Our bookstore is divided into sections:
- books published by Unity Books
- general New Thought books
- books recommended by Rev. Palmer to support his monthly themes
- spiritual books by Unity ministers and members
- youth books
- wellness books
- used books that are discounted at least 50%
We have also made it possible for members and others to purchase books through the bookstore page on the web site, which will also benefit the church. As more and more of us support the bookstore, it will be possible to expand the bookstore's inventory onsite.
I know that all of you will also support Barbara Thompson as she moves forward with the bookstore vision.
All the best,
