LOVE GOD.....LOVE PEOPLE
UNITY CHURCH OF TRUTH TORONTO MOTTO

MISSION: Building Loving, Creative and Purposeful Relationships.

When I devote my heart, mind and being to God, my love for God overflows and becomes love for people. Whenever I find that I am not loving people I ask myself how I am not loving God.

The Light of God surrounds us
The Love of God enfolds us
The Power of God protects us
The Presence of God watches over us
Where ever we are, God is. Amen
