We behold the Light in you
Welcome to Unity Center for Spiritual Growth! 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.”

Spiritual Exploration of Privilege, Racism, and Allyship
Thursdays, July 2-23, 7-8:30 p.m. via Zoom.
Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Ryan Polly
As spiritual people we have an obligation to lead with love. Over the past few weeks, we have watched the world respond to the murder of George Floyd. We may have participated in protests or started reading a book on anti-racism, yet we know we could be doing more. When we become faced with our own privilege it can feel paralyzing as we try to discern what is our work to do and how we can move toward being an ally versus a savior.
During this course you will explore systemic racism and examine your role in both participating in it and dismantling it. You will take a deep dive into your own bias and privilege and you will walk away with action steps to truly show up as not only an ally but as someone who is anti-racist. We will also explore ways that Unity, as a community, can respond.
Action for Justice and Equality
Our Community Responds
Sundays in June, 12:15-12:45 p.m.
We will meet at the rotary in Windham ((302/202) and participate in a nonviolent witness for Justice and Equality. Our presence will create greater public awareness of nonviolent change. Signs will be provided. Park in the Mercy Quick Care Parking Lot. Stay 10 minutes or however long you choose. Any action no matter how small has a ripple effect and creates a current of consciousness for change.

Coronavirus-Related Postponements & Cancelations

For anytime inspiration, check out our Sunday blog, which includes video and audio files of recent services.
We are monitoring the Coronavirus along with the world and we invite you to join in the following prayer or one of your own choosing.
We know that God is a Love that has no end and a Power that knows no bounds. God’s healing power of Divine Life is restoring, healing, and revitalizing our world in this very moment. We let go of any fears or anxieties, and we affirm that all are safe, healthy, and protected. We bless all those who support us in maintaining vibrant radiant health. We express Divine Life in all we think, say, and do. We bless our global family with radiant health, peace of mind, and abundant love.
