motivational speaker, Albuquerque
Rev. Lily Sandberg (she/her/ella) grew up in Unity, believing wholeheartedly in humanity’s sacred worth and our messiness. This dichotomy of each of us being fully human and fully divine inspired her to pursue a BA in Religious Studies and Sociology from the University of New Mexico. Ordained from UWSI in 2022, she continues to pursue ministry focused on deep care of individuals, family systems, and communities. This has inspired her next educational pursuit into medical chaplaincy, beginning Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) in 2024. She regularly guest speaks for Unity communities, as well as consults ministries in spreading their message through social media.
