A Message From Our Church to the Lgbtqi+ Community
Everyone is welcome at Unity of Springfield
Unity teaches that all people are created with sacred worth and that no one exists outside the heart of God. Its basic principles state that God is Good, and because all people exist within God, they also are inherently good. We are an LGBTQ affirming and supportive spiritual community. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Queer/Questioning people serve at all levels of leadership in our movement and in our church.
Unity of Springfield has long supported the commitments of our LGBTQ members’ relationships by offering same sex wedding ceremonies. We offer full, legal wedding support for our members. All our ministers are available to officiate same-gender wedding ceremonies. For more information contact email@example.com.
Worthy Booklet: LGBTQ Stories of Overcoming Rejection and Religion to Find Truth
Worthy is a booklet from Unity Worldwide Ministries headquarters that offers spiritual support from LGBTQ writers who overcame years of rejection to see themselves as dynamic expressions of God.
It Includes raw, powerful stories from the LGBTQ community—including Unity ministers and others who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning.
The booklet from Unity explores journeys of addiction and recovery, marriage, parenthood, abuse, and coming out, with topics including:
- Coming to Terms
- Healing from Religion
- Creating Families
- Transforming Gender
- Knowing My Worth
These stories of healing—of never giving up the search for spiritual understanding and of self-acceptance—have endings that are not simply happy but full of gratitude and love.
A Message from Unity Worldwide Ministries
Unity Leaves No One Out
Unity extends an explicit invitation to members of the LGBTQ+ community, who we know have often been rejected by spiritual communities because of who they are or who they love. Through prayer, publishing, and community outreach, we are committed to respecting the dignity of every human being—and that includes their gender identity/expression.
