Reverend Jane Hiatt

“Jane Hiatt is a lovely speaker. She channels timeless wisdom shining light on its relevance to present day in a very humble and personal way. She gives credit to many spiritual explorers that have navigated the way in the evolution of Unity and shares aspects of her personal journey blending intellectual curiosity and vulnerability. As the minister she facilitates a group consciousness that feels very open, safe and loving.”

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Unity and the people I have met here. This is the first church community that I have belonged to where I instantly felt 100% accepted and connected. The messages of love, grace, and acceptance always touch my heart and impact my daily life. I love that the focus is on spiritual growth and simply being good to yourself and others.”

“I’ve been going here for nearly a year now and it is no exaggeration to say that it has changed my life. One of things I love about Unity is the acceptance and non-judgmental nature of the organization, but more importantly, of the leaders and people who call it home. There is no pretension here, just pure love and positivity (great music too!). I look forward to every Sunday, it’s my favorite day of the week!”
