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.”

Adult Spirit Camp
Saturday, November 3, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Camp leader: Eva Goulette. Workshop Fee: $75. Register now.
Dress for the weather, because in this workshop, we will spend some of our time outside finding new, meaningful ways to connect to our natural world.

Science has recently discovered that plants communicate with each other, and when the energy supplying the life force of a plant is interrupted or stops, nearby plants will share energy with the threatened one to help it maintain its life. Let’s explore the energetic connection between humans and plants, as well as the spiritual aspects of our relationship to them. We can be active participants in learning to restore the balance between man and the natural world.
