What are Unity practices?

Unity is a way of life we actively practice. Specifically, we seek to follow the examples for living healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives demonstrated by the Master Teacher and Wayshower, Jesus, who said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Your father knows you need such things. But seek first his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.” (Luke 12:22-31)

In Unity, we practice:

Diversity — Together, we are modeling how to create an inclusive community, where people of varied beliefs, backgrounds, races, ethnicities and orientations work play, study and worship together with unabashed admiration and respect. 

Unconditional Love — Our philosophy is spiritual and love-based. We honor all paths to God and believe in making a positive difference in the world by encouraging personal initiative and growth.

Prayer and Meditation — We practice the presence of God through consistent prayer and meditation and include the church and fellow members and congregants in our daily prayer life.

Sacred Service — We practice self-less service with the understanding that by giving our time and talent, our capacity to demonstrate and embody unconditional love and acceptance expands.

Conscious Evolution  — We value education as part of the ongoing process of spiritual growth and development. We understand that our concept of God, ourselves and the nature of life expands and deepens as we apply spiritual principles to our daily choices.

Giving — Unity on the North Shore is a tithing ministry, and we practice giving joyfully and generously. We believe that through tithing, we participate in the abundant flow of the universe, which is sufficient to meet every need.
