Unity Productions Is Doing It Up!

The best thing I ever did in SL was join Unity Productions. It’s amazing that almost two years ago, I sat in a church in-world, enthralled with what Pastor Pet Karu had to say, then went to a meditation led by Pet, and then found myself swept-up in what would become UP. Within these two years, we have produced four major productions (Come Away My Beloved (v.1 and v.2), The Creation Story, I Was with Him, and The Misfits — all original works) and a countless number of soaking worships and other events across the grid. We’ve been featured in some of the it publications in SL (here’s one right here), and for every endeavor, we give it up to God who makes it all possible.

Now, UP is working to kick it to the next level (more on some of this in 2012!), and one way we are going to do that is with more material on our website. Instead of just showing what we do, we are working to show you who we are–as children of the Most High. Initiatives for the site kick off this month as UP plans several monthly projects to read, see, and listen to. This month ago, we have showcased three new monthly initiatives: monthly prayer podcast/post, monthly faith-based podcast/post, and monthly musical inspiration.

Every 1st of the month, UP will offer a prayer from one of its members. Check out December’s monthly prayer by UP founder Pet Karu. Every 15th of the month, UP will offer a podcast or blog post focused on a faith-related topic. Check out December’s podcast by me titled “Take the Limits Off!” Every 20th of the month, UP will offer a musical inspiration from one of its members. This month, I share one of my favorite songs that lifts my spirit. Check it out here.

In addition to initiatives on the site, UP has also branched out an added a new leg to its organization: Sisters in Spirit. Spearheaded by me, SiS hopes to connect with women of faith, on the grid and beyond. It has already released the short SL film, Burdens as well as poetry that connects to the film. In 2012, SiS will have more films, podcasts, and talks and interviews with women who use their faith to lead to success in their lives.

I’m very blessed to be a part of these things, and I hope you take the time to check them all out, share what you see, and contact me if you’d like to get involved!

Unity Productions Adds New Components to Its Website

As you all know, I am a founding member of the faith-based organization Unity Productions (website). I do several things besides writing and dancing for the organization. I’m also the social media director, making sure to update the site and push material to our Twitter and Facebook locales. Starting this month, UP will be adding several new components to its site. From monthly posts/podcasts on prayer and faith to monthly music selections, UP wants to make its site a place for people to be entertained, educated, and enlightened. UP kicks off its new initiatives with its first monthly prayer provided by UP founder and director Pet Karu. Check it out now by following this link.

Sisters in Spirit Initiative Kicks Off!

If you come to my blog, then you know that I’m a founding member of the faith-based organization Unity Productions, which has been in existence in-world for a year and a half now. What you might not know is that I am spearheading a new leg of UP called Sisters in Spirit.

SiS Logo

Sisters in Spirit (SiS) takes part of its mission from that of Unity Productions: to bring the word of God alive. Whereas UP does this through skits, full-length staged productions, song, dance, and music for everyone, SiS aims to provide bite-sized, faith-based works and discussions aimed toward women. Today, more than ever, women need to bond, uplift each other, and restore the worth that being a child of God entitles them. Sisters in Spirit hopes to assist in this endeavor by offering the following: SiS Podcasts, Short SiS Skits and Movies, Poetic/Musical Meditation Videos, and Occasional Talks and Discussions aired as SiS Talk.

The SiS initiative kicks off today with a wonderful podcast by UP Founder and SiS Advisor Maria Brown-Rice (Pet Karu, in SL) that talks about celebrating sisterhood–the whole purpose of starting SiS in the first place.

Please take the time to check out our first of what we hope to be many projects developed under Sisters in Spirit. You can find the podcast at the SiS blog.
