Unity Church (Fillmore)

From Kook Science

The Unity Church, known formally simply as Unity, is a religious organisation, founded 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.
