Association for Global New Thought (AGNT)

Unity Worldwide Ministries is committed to spreading the New Thought message through support of Association for Global New Thought (AGNT) programs. Below are programs that support our shared goals and will benefit everyone in the New Thought community. Please feel free to share these items with your colleagues and congregants.

AGNT was born 20 years ago based on the revolutionary idea that universal spirituality is our common vision—divisions among Religious Science, Unity, and other branches of New Thought/Ancient Wisdom limits that vision and may prevent us from reaching our full potential as a spiritual family.
 
For two decades, powerful individual ministers from within Unity, Centers for Spiritual Living, and Agape, and others have worked together under the banner of The Association for Global New Thought, inspiring congregations worldwide to participate in a mission of spiritually motivated social activism.
 
While the AGNT Leadership Council is comprised of leadership from the major New Thought organizations, we also include a number of exemplary individual ministries whose vitality and mission serve as a model for AGNT goals, coherently expressing the important principles, practices, and actions of interconnectedness, diversity, and socially conscious evolution.

AGNT's offerings to members and friends from all avenues of New Thought include: Free online program resources on topics such as nonviolence education, the Earth, interfaith & intercultural dialogue, humanitarian service, feminine leadership and gender equity, poverty and hunger, homelessness, and non-partisan tools exploring gun control, racism, immigration, human rights, and other social justice issues from a spiritually guided perspective. We also convene and produce a variety of webinars, conferences, and special events.
