Welcome to the 12 Powers for Our Planet Initiative
The Unity Worldwide EarthCare ministry’s mission is to foster awareness of our spiritual oneness with the Earth, to promote active care of all creation, and to assist congregations in integrating an Earth-oriented spirituality into their ministries. By empowering Unity ministries, the EarthCare movement envisions Unity Worldwide Ministries as a powerful force and global leader in addressing the climate change emergency and moving society towards environmental justice in order to create a world that works for all beings.
EarthCare is implementing a new strategic initiative — “12 Powers for Our Planet” — that empowers ministers and individuals with ready access to useful, compelling, inspirational information and resources.
This will be a year-long initiative that will provide educational materials and concrete action items individuals and congregations can take to become better stewards of Creation. Each month will focus on one of Unity’s 12 Powers and how it relates to caring for our Earth. Resources provided will include materials that ministers can use to deliver a Sunday message which includes factual, non-political information about the issue being discussed, and specific practical actions that can be adopted. Specific, strategic actions will be provided that can help in creating a world that works for all beings.
Each of the 12 Powers — Faith, Strength, Wisdom, Love, Power, Imagination, Understanding, Wil, Order, Zeal, Release, Life — anchor powerful spiritual truths and practices and each has relevance to our evolving relationship with all of Creation.
The 12 Powers concept and body of teaching was originally created by Charles Fillmore and he associated a disciple and region of the body with each of the powers. We do not necessarily incorporate these aspects into the Unity 12 Powers and Earth materials but we do reference them in each module.
Life: Unit Focus: The Unity spiritual power of Life is about vitality, regeneration, creation, and it is magnificently displayed in Nature and the totality of Creation. In this module we focus on the spiritual POWER OF LIFE and how it relates to and is enhanced by nature and Earthcare.
Love: Unit Focus: The Unity spiritual power of Love is the idea of universal unity. In expression, it is the power that joins and binds together the universe and everything in it. Many of us feel love for the magnificence of nature and creation. In this module we focus on the spiritual POWER OF LOVE and how it relates to and is enhanced by nature and Earthcare.
Power: Unit Focus: The Unity spiritual power of Power is all about achieving mastery of ourselves to transform our lives and our world. We are at a point in human evolution in which we need to tap into the power to do what is necessary to restore the Earth and create a sustainable living for generations to come. In this module we focus on the spiritusl power of power and how it relates to and is enhanced by nature and Earthcare. Our magnificent planet is a wonderful demonstration of, and classroom for experiencing Divine Power.
