Now Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary!
Ellen Debenport probes the edges of faith in this remarkable book and points the way into the future. The Christian world needs to hear the message that she brings for it opens doorways into tomorrow.
--Bishop John Shelby Spong, author of A New Christianity for a New World
The Five Principles provides tools for daily living and suggests answers to the great questions of existence that humans have been asking since the dawn of conscious awareness:
- What is this greater Presence that we sense around us?
- Who and what are we?
- Why do things happen in our lives the way they do?
- How can we communicate with this Presence?
- What are we here to do?
The five principles constitute the core teachings of the Unity spiritual movement founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.
These same principles reflect the laws of the universe that apply to everyone, all the time. They show up in every major religion and are all reflected in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The author encourages every reader to "work with these principles, test them, apply them to your life, and watch what happens."
