We behold the Light in you

Welcome to Unity of Greater Portland! We would love to have you come and celebrate a deeper walk in God with us. We are a loving community that celebrates together our love of God, of each other, and all of life. Many who have come here for the first time commonly express, with a sense of awe and gratitude, “I feel like I’ve come home.”

You may know about Unity from the Daily Word, our daily devotional that brings comfort and insight to millions of people around the world, or from Silent Unity, our worldwide prayer ministry.

Unity is a non-denominational Christ-based community and, as its name implies, welcomes and cherishes all people. Our greeting to each other is “Namaste,” meaning “I behold the Light in You.”

Nutrition Workshop with Mindy Rosseland
Tuesday, July 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
If you are ready to take charge of your health and comfort in being present in your body, attend to find out what so-called “health foods” are really toxic, and get to a place where biofeedback really works for you.

This class will include:

  1. A condensed version of Mindy’s Nutritional Support Course: discerning healthy food from marketing schemes and bad science.
  2. Creating your own personal lifestyle plan (bioindividuality). This is totally up to you.
  3. Biofeedback and being present. Your body is your own personal laboratory if you want it to be.

This group is open to all forms of eating lifestyles: Vegetarian, Vegan, Fruititarian, Omnivore, Ketogenic, Paleo, etc.…all are welcome. If you are doing everything you can think of to eat healthy and are still experiencing frustration with your health, this may provide the answers you seek. Cost: $25.

plantingWanted: Green thumbs, warm homes, and sunny dispositions!
Many of you have already expressed interest in hosting some of our intrepid seedlings for our summer gardens! Thank you! We will be providing small “flats” of vegetables and herb seeds for at-home care after the service. This is just one round of vegetable fostering; each week will provide more opportunities for new fosters. So if you’re not around this Sunday, or there aren’t plants available, have no fear; there are more to come! Tomatoes and eggplants, cabbages and herbs are settling into their earthen beds (in cups and more formal planting attire) this week. Please send an email if you’re interested in taking some little ones home this Sunday. And don’t worry if you don’t have a good seedling germination/nursery area; there’s plenty more to do.Welcome all! And thank you.
