These speakers are some of the foremost thought leaders in our region, sharing their perspectives on the issues that face the Houston area.
At Unity of Houston, reaching out into the community is a proactive way in which we live the principles we believe – that we all spiritually connected, one to another. In this belief, when the consciousness of one is raised that, in turn, raises the consciousness of us all. We connect to our Oneness by working with others to help those in need.
Please join us for lunch and find out how you can help support this organization and our community outreach projects.
