Unity Church (Fillmore)
From Kook Science
The Unity Church, known formally simply as Unity, is a religious organisation, founded as the United School of Christianity (also referred to as the Unity Society of Practical Christianity) at Kansas City, Missouri in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, students of E. B. Weeks, a New Thought lecturer. The couple established the church following Myrtle Fillmore's recovery from tuberculosis, which they attributed to a system of prayer and associated methods of mind-cure, and some decades later, following the First World War, established the Unity Village on a 1,200-acre territory some 15 miles (~24 km) southeast of Kansas City.
