Open to the public, the Labyrinth at Unity of Springfield provides a unique experience for Springfieldians, where you can walk the intricate pattern at your own pace as you seek to connect more deeply to your inner Spirit.
The Labyrinth was modeled after the one at Unity Village, Missouri, the headquarters of the Unity movement. It was created entirely by the Youth of Unity, led at that time by Martin Dowman, who crafted the outline of the project. The teens provided all the manual labor, from chalking to painting. The Labyrinth is situated behind the Teen House, which is located at 2302 S. Luster, on the south side of the parking lot of the church, which is on the corner of Luster and Seminole.
Comfort for Kids
A long-time supporter of the Council of Churches, Unity of Springfield has given thousands of stuffed animals to the Council, which are, in turn, given to children who are removed from their homes. Each one of these stuffed animals are situated throughout the Sanctuary during the month of collection, and congregants are encouraged to hold them and visualize a child receiving the love and comfort of God through this means. Over the years, Unity of Springfield has donated thousands of these cuddly creatures so that children might receive some measure of comfort during a most challenging time.
The GiggleBox Project
The GiggleBus is becoming a familiar sight around Springfield, and makes Unity of Springfield an easy destination to find, as it resides in our parking lot when it's not out campaigning for support for GiggleBoxes. The brainchild of Susan Dempsey, longtime congregant and member of Unity of Springfield, GiggleBoxes are given to children with terminal illnesses, in order that they might find laughter, and in doing so, align more easily with the natural healing activity of their bodies. Congregants of Unity of Springfield volunteer for the GiggleBoxes, and Susan works tirelessly raising funds for the contents of the GiggleBoxes.
