Eric Butterworth was an ordained Unity minister and author of numerous articles and books. The following excerpt is from his book Unity: A Quest for Truth.
Unity is not simply a church to join or a creed to espouse. Unity is a study of religion as a science of living. It is an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ with prime emphasis on practice. Obviously, it will hold no interest for those whose religion is a white cloak to be wrapped around them on Sunday morning and then tossed into the six-day closet of unconcern.
