What a blessing to have found a Community that honors Source as its centerboard and is open to acceptance of all human experience.  Unity is my Spiritual Home and has presented itself as the ‘Teacher’ for the Student ready to learn.   I have been attending for several years and continue to expand and incorporate into my life the understanding of its principle that the source of Good is God Within and the limitless education offered here.
