Founded in March 2004 by Pastor Margo Ross Sears, Light & Energy Workers Association (LEWA) is a non-profit, national, spiritual organization based in North Carolina, USA. Honoring all spiritual paths, we are non-denominational and multi-faith. Our official state by-laws may be requested from our Emissary. Read more about our 200+ Clergy Members under Clergy Listings.
“Historically, clergy ordinations served to separate out the ‘holy people’ from the ‘lay people’ and secular masses. It created 2 classes of people. Also, ordinations were also held for people who underwent years of study to insure that a particular dogma, or belief system, would be enforced. What is beautiful about what LEWA provides is a safe-space for acknowledgement that we ALL are sacred people worthy of searching, looking inside finding and defining our own Truths. That means that everyone has a right to be holy. There is no ‘us and them’…only Sacred Beings at different places in the profound journey of life.
And so I want to acknowledge the personal journey that has brought each of us here to be ordained: the tears, the questioning, the struggle, the patience, the courage to think for yourself! Thank you for taking on the spiritual responsibility of finding what inspires you. Thank you for for showing up, and reminding us all that we are powerful beings, connected to our Source, capable of affecting our world. Together we proclaim with our lives the truth that there is no ‘us and them’! We are all sacred expressions of God/Spirit with the power to give Life with our words, give Hope with our smiles, and live the values of compassion and equality! And most importantly, for each of us to be Guardians of Spiritual Freedom. It is an honor to be a part of LEWA.”

“I always believe that is it much better to have a variety of religions, a variety of philosophies.
Each religion has certain learning about them which can only enrich one’s own faith.”
