Our Mission Statement and Principles
We are an inclusive community of positive-minded people, learning and supporting each other in living healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives.
Five Unity Principles
Living Our Principles
We strive to approach situations calmly and peacefully by focusing our thinking on the power, love, and goodness of God. As we encounter people, we treat them with care and compassion, seeing the Christ Spirit: the goodness within them.
We handle our daily activities with joy, focusing our attention and thinking not on lack, illness, or negativity, but on prosperity, health, and happiness. Therefore, we find ourselves moving easily and joyously, fulfilling our highest desires.
We spend time in quiet prayer and meditation, bringing the Presence of God into our awareness. As we engage in life’s activities, we express and manifest God’s Presence.
We Are Unity
From the 02-27-11 talk “We Dare to Be Who We Are.” Induction of new members.
Youth and Family Ministry
Unity recognized that there are many expressions of family life. All are welcome. Unity creates an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility, and unconditional love and acceptance. We behold all children as whole and perfect expressions of God. We empower children to fulfill their divine potential. We teach children to meditate and pray and invite them to experience a loving God.
We are an all-inclusive community of truth seekers. We offer a safe and welcoming place for all who wish to explore and/or further their spiritual journey.
We have had a presence at St. Cloud Pride In the Park since 2010 and have been an official sponsor since 2012. We are supporters of PFLAG. We also offer a beautiful venue for same-sex weddings.
