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.”

birdBeholding Nature: Spiritual Ecology Through the Eyes of the Heart
Mondays, May 9-June 20, 6:30-8 p.m., with Jack Seery and Cynthia Froehlich
In human relationships, the most honoring thing one person can do for another is to truly see them, to look deep beneath the surface and affirm the unique being within. This is how God sees. In this class, we will work with a variety of practices to broaden and deepen our perceptions of the other-than-human world, practices that will open “the eyes of the heart” and help us to perceive Nature apart from our projections.

Community Meeting
Sunday, June 5, 12:15 p.m.
Come join us for our Unity of Greater Portland Community Meeting. What is working and what isn’t will be part of the discussion. Come and share your thoughts and concerns.

Silent Retreat
Saturday, June 18, 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
This is an invitation to join other members of the Unity of Greater Portland community for a day of silence in community. It is an opportunity to withdraw from the constant noise and demands of our lives and listen to our inner voice, the inner voice of our authentic self, the inner voice of Spirit, however experienced. Being in community creates a supportive atmosphere that allows us to surrender into that silence. Being in silence creates a deeper sense of community and a deeper relationship with Spirit. Please sign up at Unity of Greater Portland or call the office – 893-1233. Love offering (retreat and lunch). Learn more
