A positive path for spiritual living

Diversity Statement

Unity of Evansville- A Non-Judgment Zone

Unity of Evansville believes that every person has within them the same essence as Christ.  We often say “I behold the Christ in You.”  Therefore, we honor and welcome all people, regardless of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation.  We recognize the strength of diversity within our spiritual community.

We consider ourselves a “Judgment Free Zone” with the primary purpose of helping people discover the Christ within and to have a stronger connection with Source every day.  It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.

Honoring Diversity Within the Unity Movement

We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth. It is imperative that our ministries and outreach be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.

In our effort to reach out to all people as did our Way Shower, Jesus Christ, we support the modification of our facilities to make them accessible to all people, regardless of physical challenges; the translation of our materials into braille and other languages; and respect for the wonderful variety of human commitments and relationships.

We encourage ministers, teachers and others within Unity to honor the strength of diversity within their spiritual communities. It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.
