As noted previously, I attended a service at the Unity Church of Palm Harbor yesterday. I received a visitor packet which included a copy of the Basic Unity Principles, as outlined by Connie Fillmore in her book “Keys to the Kingdom”. I think these principles are the closest thing I’ve seen to my current belief set. However, after attending the Lutheran church for almost 20 years, it seems to me that Unity services need more singing.

Basic Unity Principles
1. God is absolute good, everywhere present.
2. Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, and Christ spirit within. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good.
3. Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.
4. Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.
5. Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.
