Unity is happy to be partnered with Oroville’s Hope on Wheels with our contributions to their Friday services for the unsheltered. With our help fresh sandwiches, soups and homemade baked goods are all part of the food the shower/laundry bus volunteers provide.
Helping our community is a joy and a blessing!
Our first in-person service of 2021 was held on Sunday, June 13!

"Every Ending Is A New Beginning"
Rev. Kathy Zavada
June 6, 2021
Everything in this world has a beginning and an ending, and if we look closely, endings bring new beginnings. We explore this thing called 'divine discontent', an inner prompting that urges us towards ever greater realization, expression and self-discovery. Can we trust and consciously move through the poignant moments in our lives where we face an ending. Can we open to new beginnings with curiosity and a creative spirit.
"The Principles of Non-Violent Communication"
May 30, 2021
It was a joy to have NVC teacher Donna Kramer share teachings on Marshall Rosenberg's non-violent communication. There are skills we can learn on how we listen to hear the need under the words, and how we speak in a way that takes personal responsibility without adding blame and judgment with the intention for deeper connection. Rosenberg was inspired by Gandhi, who taught that we must also work on passive violence, meaning the non-physical violence that can manifest in our language and the way we speak to one another. Our world would so benefit from these skills!

"There's A Healing Going On"
Rev. Kathy Zavada shares a new song (written by Jami Lula).
Unity is a faith that honors all pathways to God. Unity is a safe place to explore all your spiritual and existential questions about Life. We welcome everyOne. If you are in a same sex relationship or are rich or poor, old or young—we behold the Christ in you and see the best in you. Unity leaves no one out. We include all people and the living Earth in our circle of light and love.
Unity is not a new religion. Unity is an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ with the primary emphasis on practice. The core practices in Unity are Affirmative Prayer and Silent Meditation. Unity in the deepest sense of the word is union with God, Self-Realization, Oneness. Unity gives us a collection of techniques in enlightened living that include thoughts to think, words to speak, healing treatments, creative visualizations and positive, uplifting daily practices.
Unity calls us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, all the Saints, Siddhas and Buddhas—to become Unified, Integrated, Whole, Holy and Complete-- in every way. Jesus said, “Follow me” and we take him at his word. “I have come so that you can feel Joy and my Joy may be in you and your joy may be full.”
We hope that you join us in this adventure called Unity!
