From Rev. Karen herself, about her spiritual outlook…
I’ve been in 12-Step for over 25 years and Unity for over 10 years. Quite simply, both are the best things in my life. I’ve had these complimentary teachings for a long time and their impact on my life has been profound. I especially love Unity because it affirms people right where they are.
I want whoever encounters Unity Global Heart and me to feel connection above all; connection to God, whatever you experience that as, connection to yourself, and that you feel a connection to the people in this community without walls.
One of our hallmarks is that we are inclusive. We value diversity of all kinds—race or ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, lifestyle, everything. I am an avid supporter of gay marriage.
Ultimately, everyone is walking his or her individual path. That’s why Unity is the way it is. We support everyone to be everything individually that they want to be.
I have a deep love and faith in the Unity message of the Divinity of every person. I think that’s what makes Unity so special —that we start with, in the words of Matthew Fox— Original Blessing.
