Corona Pandemic Update From Rev. Pam
There has been some confusion recently regarding the re-opening of places of worship. This statement represents Rev. Pam’s prayerful and thoughtful consideration about re-opening of Unity for in-house services and activities.
First of all, we definitely and without hesitation agree that the divine presence expressed in all spiritual traditions are essential services. This presence of faithful support and prayerful unfoldings are essential parts of our lives.
However, we have clearly learned over the past few months that this need not be in person only. We have remained connected, deepened our prayer life and expanded our congregation while doing Live Streaming Services & Zoom events.
I find myself inspired by Jesus’ words in the Gospel of John where he says “The hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship Godde in spirit and truth, for Godde seeks such as these to so worship. Godde is spirit, and those who worship must worship in spirit and truth.”
We at Unity will continue to worship in spirit by virtual means until the CDC, Washington state and Jefferson county officially allow us to safely enter Phase 4. At that point, we’ll consciously and carefully plan our re-opening. Today, we celebrate entering Phase 2. We’ll take it all step-by-step and side-by-side.
Please know this is done from love and not fear. It is done with grace rather than expediency. It is an expression of deepening faith as we realize how we truly are connected in spirit and how we can truly pray without ceasing always. We will follow the greatest commandment to love and to care for one another.

With much love and many blessings, Rev. Pam
