Discover the Power Within You

Unity is designating 2012 as the year to Discover the Power Within You, linking with the powerful book of the same name by the late Rev. Eric Butterworth. If you are unfamiliar with the book or with Rev. Butterworth, we invite you to visit for more information on the man and on the book that Oprah Winfrey claimed “changed my perspective on life and religion. Eric Butterworth teaches that God isn’t ‘up there.’ He exists in, around, above and through each one of us, and it’s up to us to seek the divine within.”

Each month of 2012 will focus on a different topic, correlating with the top 12 most requested prayer needs received by Silent Unity. Bookmark this page and check back often for feature articles, meditations, affirmations and other resources (including writings from Rev. Butterworth) to support that month’s topic.
