Here are some notes on what Unity is all about.
Non-denominational Christian community that metaphysically interprets the Bible, discerning the meaning beyond the words.
Unity is a spirituality not a religion.
Unity utilizes a “practical application” of the teachings of Jesus.
Jesus is our brother and way shower, not a God that is worshipped.
“Not a church or sect,
but a place
where the students of Jesus
gain a spiritual understanding
of the words of Jesus,
the parables of Jesus
and the rites of the church.
We baptize not with water
but with Spirit…”
Written by Charles Fillmore, cofounder, with his wife Myrtle
We do our best to follow the 5 Unity Principles:
Mind: 1. God is absolute good, everywhere present. 2. Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good.
Idea: 3. Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought. 4. Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.
Expression: 5. Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.
Mind, Idea, Expression is the metaphysical Trinity of Father, Son, Holy Spirit
Most of us meditate daily in the morning or when walking or during a meditative activity. Just to listen for and connect with the ‘still small voice’ within.
Many of us follow our gut or listen to our intuition as a daily practice.
