What is Unity

What is Unity?

Presented by Barbara Schafer, LUT

Unity is a positive, practical progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and power of prayer.  It is an open-minded, loving spiritual community that honors the universal Truths in all religions and helps people to discover and to live their spiritual potential and purpose.
 
We are inclusive of all and free of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, creed, national origin ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation.

Unity’s Concept of God

  • God is Spirit. The Source of ALL that IS.
  • God is the one power, all good, everywhere present, all wisdom.
  • God is divine energy, continually creating, expressing and sustaining all creation
  • God is Life, Light, Love, Substance, Principle and Universal Mind

Jesus

Jesus expressed His divine potential and sought to show mankind how to express ours as well. Our “Way-shower” showed us the way
Master Teacher who taught and demonstrate Universal Truths perfectly.

In Unity “Christ” means the divinity of all humankind.  We say, “I salute the Christ in you” meaning the divinity in you and in me.
 

Humankind

Unity teaches that each person is a unique expression of God created with sacred worth.

Our essential nature is divine and therefore inherently good.
The more fully we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses thru us and AS us in our lives.
 

The Power of Thought

Our thoughts, words and feelings create our own reality which we manifest in our lives.

The Law of mind action – thoughts held in mind reproduce after their kind.

Our minds are the connecting link to the Divine Mind.

When we choose life-affirming thoughts, words and actions, we experience a more fulfilling and abundant life.
 

 Power of Prayer

Prayer is aligning ourselves with the divine.

Unity teaches Affirmative Prayer

Includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts
Affirms universal Truths

Need to develop a “life of prayer” by “Practicing the Presence” of God in every present moment of the day.
 

Meditation

Purpose: to bring us into direct communion with God – our Oneness with all that is

Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”

Jesus: “The kingdom of God is within you.” 

“Go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.” Matt. 6:6

“Let go, Let God”  Spirit has all the solutions.
 

Applying Unity Concepts

These are just words unless we apply them in our everyday life.
Living these principles transforms our lives

Unity teaches it is a sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our Spiritual Center, our community and our world.

Unity is a dynamic movement on the cutting edge of spiritual evolution.

Teaches universal spiritual principles that transforms lives when applied to our lives

Living in the infinite flow of God’s good, we draw from God’s infinite supply and wisely use our rich resources to serve the world.
