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.”

Board of Trustees News
Greetings Beloved Community,
Here we are, heading into fall after a beautiful (and highly unusual) summer. I hope this letter finds you and yours enjoying this amazing time of year.
As you might expect we (your Board) have been trying to figure out the best way to approach the re-opening at our physical location. While the crash course in running everything on-line has given us some wonderful experiences we will carry forward, we are ever mindful of the time we can be around each other again in person.

September 23 – November 20
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Change takes a long time, but it does happen. Each of us who works for social change is part of the mosaic of all who work for justice; together we can accomplish multitudes.” ~ Deborah Ellis
As I reflect on this quote, I realize that I am being asked to release some old stale limited beliefs in this time of the pandemic and in the political climate we are experiencing. The heightened awareness of racism in our culture has shown me where I have held beliefs that are contrary to what is true. I have opened myself to looking at where I have been complacent and where I have looked the other way rather than calling out the behavior. I truly believe that as we heal we are adding to the light of the collective consciousness. ~ Rev Pat Bessey
Action for Justice and Equality
Our Community Responds
Sundays, 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
All in-person Sunday services and other activities are postponed or canceled until further notice.
The decision was made for us when the Maine CDC recommended at their briefing today that folks 60 and over avoid groups of ten or more.
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.
