Today the conference visited Unity Village

Unity Village is located 15 miles southeast of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, and is the home of Unity World Headquarters, a world-renowned religious and educational institution. The peaceful atmosphere and natural beauty attracts spiritual seekers of all faiths and backgrounds with its 1400 acres of breath taking countryside including; formal gardens, an extensive metaphysical library, labyrinth, bookstore, and the Unity Village Chapel. The unique Mediterranean-style buildings, two of which are among the National Register of Historic Places, are located among the chapels, fountains, and reflecting pools.

Charles and Myrtle Fillmore founded Unity Village in 1889. Both Charles and Myrtle were experiencing physical challenges at the time they discovered the spiritual principles that healed them. Others inquired about these principles and applied them in their lives and were helped. A small prayer group meeting at the Fillmore's home was the beginning of the movement, which now circles the globe with over 600 churches and centers. The Fillmore's believed that God is present in every person, and through prayer and meditation, one can know God and receive guidance. They believed that as children of a loving God, we are all are heirs to God's kingdom of health, abundance, prosperity, and happy joy-filled lives.

Unity Village now houses the Unity School of Christianity, which publishes Daily Word and Unity Magazine and trains ministers and licenses teachers. It also houses Silent Unity, a twenty-four hour telephone prayer ministry that answers thousands of requests for prayers weekly. The Association of Unity Churches, also located in Unity Village, offers a network of services and materials to field ministries. Retreats and continuing education classes are held throughout the year.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
