The Courage To Connect
We connect when we open our hearts to the
love of other people. There is no separation between hearts because the
light that fills and shines through each heart is Divine energy, the
light of God. Behind each unique face and each individual heartbeat, we
recognize oneness and boundless connection. If we allow the Oneness of
connection to breathe through us, it swells our hearts, expands our
compassion, sweetens our hope, emboldens our creativity and empowers our
At Unity of Portland we believe that
within each of us lies the Divine Spirit of connection. There are many
paths to experiencing the Ground of Being we call God, and each of us is
free to live according to the inspiration and spirit of the truth we
carry within our hearts. We believe we are all strengthened and healed
by our hearts connecting as one—the power of coming together in Spirit
where there is no distance or separation between us. Together we unite
as ever expanding love and truth.
If you feel alone or are seeking a
Spiritual home we invite you to connect with the Unity of Portland
community. The love, truth and understanding you seek, is also seeking
you. Our commitment as a ministry is to help support and inspire living a
more fulfilling, Spirit-centered life—to provide the opportunity for
the light in each of us to shine brightly in this world.
We invite you to attend our Sunday
Services, workshops, social activities, Unity classes, community events,
meditation groups or volunteer for one of our many outreach ministries.
"What makes our ministry and our lives great?
Our connection to people!
