In July 1924, “devoted to the daily practice of Christian truths,” Unity Daily Word made its debut. The cost was $.10 a copy or $1 a year.
Rev. Eric Page, archivist at Unity Village, says the publication was created to meet requests for a monthly manual of daily meditations and spiritual instruction. “Man finds the lost word when he finds within himself his God-given power to create through his word,” read the cover message of that historic issue.
Because Unity encouraged the use of affirmations to positively change one’s thinking, the “word” in Daily Word® refers to meditating on an affirmative idea daily.
