2022 Fall Program About the Book


The same spiritual principles run like a thread through most of the world's religions. They have been called the "golden thread" or "Perennial Philosophy."  We know them as Unity's Five Basic Principles.

In this book, longtime Unity Minister Paul John Roach connects Unity teachings with the ancient ideas found in the world's religions. He elaborates on the five universal principles and shows how they are expressed through other faith traditions.

''''Rev. Roach includes Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, and Christianity to compare to Unity. He also writes about smaller traditions such as Sufism and Zoroastrianism and acknowledges lesser-known groups, including Dudeism, based on the movie The Big Lebowski. ("The dude abides.”) Most sections include extensive quotes from the luminaries of each tradition.

This book is a treasure trove of ideas and stories about the many ways human beings relate to the Presence we all feel.
