If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a movie worth? A million?
Our Unity Spiritual Center movie captures our energy here and our people. We hope it gives you a sense of who we are. Let us know what you think, and what else we could post to give you a peek at our spiritual community.
Why do you volunteer? Or why would you want to volunteer here at Unity Spiritual Center? Here’s what Gary Lock, who organized our Sacred Rubble rummage sale this year, has to say…
Your time, treasure, and talents are so appreciated. Please contact us if you’d like to help–a great way to make friends and meet new people!
At Unity, you’ve probably heard us talk about the importance of stories. Sometimes we emphasize stories and their influence, especially when we play them over and over in our head, creating the narrative that we live by.
We have stories to tell about Center, our Unity beliefs, and who we’ve come here to be. At Unity Spiritual Center Spokane you’ll find us telling our stories on Sunday mornings during our 9 & 11 am services, in our Sanctuary, and in our Youth Ministry. You can read our stories on our blog, and you can connect with our people and their stories on our social media sites: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We’re finding new tools every day to connect with you and share. Today, I found Magisto, a fun movie-making app.
Here’s a short video I made, showing places around our center and the people you might meet here.
Communication is a two way street, and we welcome you to ask questions and leave comments for us via our blog and our social media sites. We’d love to hear from you!
Did you know that our Discoveries newsletter continues being published? True! We publish this newsletter quarterly now, and we focus on Gratitudes and Celebrations–looking back at the past season, counting our blessings, reporting on upcoming events, and blessing our ministry and those who participate and lead us.
We include articles from our co-ministers and youth and family minister, board president, our Foundation, bookstore and include an abundance update. We also publish articles featuring key volunteers and people who are new to Unity.
We hope you enjoy reading this publication as much as we enjoy putting it together. Read it here: Spring2015, or find it in print at our center! Or click here to be taken to an online form so you can receive an electronic version every quarter.
Summer Discoveries is coming soon…
“We hug (lots) at Unity camp for three full breaths and I am a slow breather! The heart has no choice but to eventually open when that one person shows up and seems to hold the key.
Often ageless and faceless. There is no judgement, no expectation…just unconditional love and total acceptance. Who knew that after so many years in the leadership field focusing on growth, human potential and spiritual awareness that a youth camp would hold the key for me! I am continually amazed at how life unfolds.” Cindy Sheppard, Northwest Youth of Unity (YOU) 2015 Rally attendee
Cindy knows what it’s like to experience a Unity camp. For her and many others, it is a life-affirming, spiritual experience. That is why we continue to offer these events to kids and their families and even provide scholarships to those in need.

Sacred Rubble 2015 was a financial and community-building success! Led by Gary Lock, this year’s rummage-sale extravaganza was so organized and fun. Gary began meeting and planning in January to get our facility, volunteers and the greater community ready for this event. We raised over $7,000, logged hundreds of volunteer hours, and welcomed nearly a thousand people to our spiritual center. Thank you for all your help and support–we couldn’t have done it without you!
Wow, we can hardly believe that the big day is nearly here: Sacred Rubble 2015! We started planning this huge fundraising rummage sale at the beginning of the year with Gary Lock and several other key players. Luckily, previous year’s volunteers, like Patti Godwin, saved their files and organizing principles.
The biggest difference this year, has been the early layout. Today is Monday, and the chairs in the Sanctuary have been moved and even used to help display items. Usually, set up doesn’t begin until two days before the sale, but Gary had a vision to get started early. And we’re glad he did because it saves a lot of time. Why move things three or even four times when you can set it up directly?!
We hope you join us this Friday, April 24 from 9 am to 4 pm, and Saturday, April 25 from 9 am to 2 pm. The Baristas will be making specialty coffee drinks. Scratch-made baked good will be available. Treasures await you! All your donations have been greatly appreciated. Now come by and find some amazing itesm! All proceeds benefit our general fund. Divine love truly blesses all that we have, all that we give, and all that we receive!
