Message from the Minister

Welcome to Unity of Pasadena!

Greg Dorst wearing a suit and tie, and prayer beadsWhether you have a strong spiritual foundation or are just at the beginning your spiritual journey, Unity of Pasadena offers insights and guidance for all people. Unity teachings bring together ancient wisdom from many faith traditions and apply that wisdom to our lives, today. We find that Jesus is an example of a way to live life with love, peace, compassion, and joy. We strive to follow the example of Jesus and in this way celebrate our own divinity. Here at Unity of Pasadena, we consciously connect and align with the love of Spirit, creating a joyous atmosphere of togetherness.

Because we know that each person comes to Unity at a different place on their journey, we invite you to use the language that resonates with you. Whether you like to say God, the Universe, Spirit, divine truth, Love, or some other phrase, we believe that this divine energy is all the same: a benevolent expression of goodness, order, abundance, and love in the world.

The Five Principles taught by Unity offer foundational guidance for living abundantly and staying in tune with our own divine nature; they are:

  • God is everywhere and always present in every circumstance. This divine energy underlies and animates all of existence. 
  • Each of us is innately good and a unique expression of Spirit.
  • Our thoughts have creative power to influence events and determine our experiences. 
  • Prayer and meditation connect and align us to our own spiritual nature and to God. 
  • It is not enough to understand spiritual teachings. We must apply our learning in all areas of life, incorporating them into our thoughts, words, and actions. 

We invite you to join us in finding meaning and insight through connection where we practice the spiritual principle of Oneness. There is but One Power in the Universe operating as all that we are, all that we see and all that is yet to come. Please join us in our celebration. Feel the Grace flow through your heart.
