A Message from Rev. Kathy

 
Dear Unity of Oroville Community,

We want to keep you informed of Unity of Oroville's position and intention in light of the announcement President Trump made yesterday deeming churches essential and pressing that they again meet in person starting this weekend.

It is our utmost concern, interest and priority to place the health and well being of our congregation first and foremost. Your safety and well being will always be the motivation for the decisions we make regarding how we conduct our service. Yesterday, Butte County Health Department announced a dramatic increase in cases with seven new cases in the last two days in Oroville.

For now we will continue to conduct our service online with Zoom, as we've found it keeps our congregation feeling connected, provides spiritual support and inspiration, and keeps everyone — including our largely retired congregant population — safe and well.

We will discuss how we move forward at our board meeting next week and keep you updated as to what our safe roll-out plan will be. We appreciate your understanding, prayers and support as we discern the most conscious and best way to proceed.

Peace and blessings,
Rev. Kathy Zavada

Unity of Oroville

     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!
