BABARA KANA (B.K.)
UCHC Board Trustee
I became a member of UCHC in 2006. I was drawn to the love and openness fellow congregants offered. The 5 principles represented freedom from the restrictive dogma I had experienced from previous religious houses. During my 10 years at UCHC, I have served on the board 6 years and was a member of the building committee of our new church. I currently serve as building and grounds liaison. I have great love for the Unity movement and will continue to serve in whatever capacity the Divine moves me toward.
UCHC Board Trustee
I have been worshiping at Unity Church of the Hill Country for over twenty years. The guiding principles of Unity have provided a pathway to more joy, love and forgiveness in my life. I love our meditation chapel, our classes, our music and the sense of Community I have found with those who join me in worship and service here. I am a retired business woman who owned and operated a landscape contracting company in this community for 27 years. Before that I worked in higher education in both student services and teaching in the communication field. I have served on boards of the Hill Country Youth Ranch, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Riverside Nature Center. I now volunteer in the Central Mountains of Panama where I served in the U.S. Peace Corps over 50 years ago. I am helping young people who live in communities without a high school travel to the nearest high school or board at an International Baccalaureate High School we started in the area. I am blessed with three grown children married to wonderful spouses and five grandchildren.
