“We cannot despair of humanity,
since we ourselves are human beings.”
This theme is Unity’s 2019 theme. Unity Church in Albany, and hundreds of other Unity churches will develop talks based on this year-long theme. Each month has a dedicated theme to support the overall theme. With humanity seeming to be in a vulnerable place, it is important for us to remember that we are one humanity with many stories, we are one with God, we are One.
Unity wrote, “Sometimes it is said that if you knew another person’s story, you couldn’t help but love them. Each of us has known hardship and heartbreak, just as each of us has known joy. Some people have overcome unimaginable adversity while others seem to have been blessed with all a human being could ever want.
“Yet a greater story over-arches them all: We are all one. Despite the appearance of separate bodies, individual personalities, and different pursuits, we are one humanity. Like a prism divides light into a rainbow of colors, we humans express God in infinite ways.
“Humanity has only scratched the surface of its real potential.”
It starts with one. It starts with you. It starts with me. Together, as we see the good in humanity, humanity will be what we see it as. Let us shift our consciousness, so that we can be of great benefit to humanity and the world.
