She loves all things Star Trek and Star Wars and believes in the future Gene Roddenberry predicted decades ago: “Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins to not just tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in lifeforms.”
Founding Minister: Rev. Julie A Vance
Active in Unity since 1983, Reverend Julie served as a Licensed Unity Teacher, Speaker, and Board Member at Unity of Harrisburg before serving as Spiritual Leader of an outreach Unity group she founded in Lebanon in 1991. This group met in Lebanon, Hershey, and Hummelstown before moving to the current location at 37 East Main Street in Palmyra. Rev. Julie entered the Unity Worldwide Ministries Field Licensing Program and was ordained as Minister of Unity of Palmyra on April 10, 2005.
An avid ballroom dancer, Rev. Julie chose as her theme for her ordination, “I dance with the Divine with me, and it is beautiful.” She shared her message to the congregation at the ordination service and through a ballroom dance presentation at the reception which followed.
During her years in ministry, she served as Secretary of the Unity Worldwide Ministries Eastern Region Board, President of Palmyra- A Caring Community, and chair of the Palmyra Area Counseling Center Board.
Rev. Julie retired from Unity of Palmyra on April 30, 2017, grateful for the privilege of sharing in the joys, sorrows, and life experiences of the congregation for 25 years. She plans to take time for rest, relaxation, and renewal and to discern where her “Dance with the Divine” will take her next.
