On Wednesday morning, March 11th, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear requested that churches cancel services beginning March 15 to help deter the spread of the new coronavirus, COVID-19. In response to his request and to help protect our congregation, your Board decided to move our Sunday morning services to live streaming platforms on Facebook and YouTube effective this Sunday. This includes both the Meditation Service at 9:00 AM, Gerry’s class at 10:15 and the 11:00 AM Celebration of Spirit. Links to sources are provided below.
This move is temporary. We will monitor the efforts of our governmental and health officials to control the spread of COVID-19 and will resume our physical services as soon as we can in a safe and responsible manner. We suggest you watch the video distributed by Unity Worldwide Ministries (link provided) and pray with other members of our movement from around the World.
Despite our services and classes moving online, we are operating as business as usual. Our office will remain open during this time. Reverend Val and others are available to speak and pray with you, as is Silent Unity. Please reach out with questions and concerns by calling the Unity office, sending emails or posting on Facebook.
During this time, we also strongly urge you to continue your financial support of Unity of Louisville by using the Donate Button on our website or by using snail mail. The Church mailing address is 757 S Brook Street, Louisville KY 40203.
Annual Board Meeting Postponed
Similarly, since we are moving services online temporarily, we’ve decided to postpone our Annual Meeting, which includes the election of new Board members until Sunday April 26th. We’re hopeful that by that time conditions will permit a safe gathering of our membership. If that changes, we will let you know as soon as possible. We look forward to being together once again in a forum where your questions can be asked and answered as we plan for our future together and the opportunity to transform ourselves and the World through Love.
In closing, please know that Divine Order is already in process. As in any time of uncertainty, right now is an opportunity for us to lean (even more) into the Unity Principles, especially through thoughts, affirmations and prayer. This great challenge provides us with an opportunity to grow in community and love. We are in this together. Lean in. Reach out. Continue to connect and love each other and our world.
Peace, blessings and good health,
The Board of Trustees, Unity of Louisville

With the increased publicity regarding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that everyone give intentional thought to being prepared.
The first and most important step is always prayer. We know that our consciousness makes a difference and one of the greatest gifts Unity offers is to stay positive and pray.We invite you to join in the following prayer or one of your own choosing.We know that God is a Love that has no end and a Power that knows no bounds. God’s healing power of Divine Life is restoring, healing, and revitalizing our world in this very moment. We let go of any fears or anxieties, and we affirm that all are safe, healthy, and protected. We bless all those who support us in maintaining vibrant radiant health. We express Divine Life in all we think, say, and do. We bless our global family with radiant health, peace of mind, and abundant love.
Basic Prevention Steps
The steps to prevention include the same steps you would take in the face of any active flu season:
-Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
-Protect coughs by coughing and
sneezing into your elbow and/or a tissue.
-Frequently clean surfaces that are often touched, especially door knobs, door frames, telephones, keyboards, and bathroom areas.
-Use hand sanitizer, carry a little bottle in your pocket or purse..
-If you feel sick (even a little bit)GO HOME AND REST. It's likely nothing, but most cases of the Novel Coronavirus have mild symptoms which has contributed to it being spread so far and so fast.
- Less Physical Contact. Send Aura Hugs and Blow Kisses! Spread occurs by touching the face. Love Thy Neighbor a bit further away until everything calms down. Hearts can connect just as deeply.
