3. Join a church or community discussion group
4. Join and/or volunteer with non-profit organizations
Engaged Spirituality is a calling from the Christ within each of us to step forward and offer our time, talents, and possibly our treasures in support of causes which speak directly to our souls. Just as Jesus engaged equitably within each community he entered we are called to engage with others in our communities applying love and compassion while helping solve active situations in our communities and beyond.
By knowing, following and applying Unity principles we ‘walk our talk’ with the goal of respectfully listening, sharing and improving each life situation.
We envision a society governed by love and motivated by compassion. We honor the truth that all human beings are inherently good, created equal, and equally loved by their Source - God the Good.
We honor and practice affirmative prayer, hence we are not ‘against anyone or anything’ but we are for: equality, justice, accountability, honesty, transparency, respect, open communication, responsibility, inclusivity, and the renewed health of our planet, her resources, her peoples and all her living beings.
We agree that all are interconnected. What happens to our planet, her resources, the plants, animals, and any person affects each of us. We choose causes that talk to our individual souls. We may be creatively moved to speak up and show up in our own unique way knowing we all are one.
We practice loving kindness and do not judge ourselves or others. We do however speak up and stand up for our principles and apply them in support of others who may need our unity.
We choose to stay non-political. We apply our principles while interacting with all including elected officials.
