Coming to Unity Spiritual Center on September 28, 2014, author and ACIM teacher Robert Rosenthal, MD.
We have all known bondage in one form or another, we have all suffered plagues, and we all want to be free. In this sense, the Biblical book of Exodus is not just the story of Moses leading the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt 3000 years ago … it is very much our story too, an inner struggle every day in our own hearts and minds. Join guest speaker Dr.  Rosenthal, author of From Plagues to Miracles, as he shares his Sundaymessage “Atonement and Freedom: Two Faces of the Same Process” at 10 AM.
A book signing will follow the service. Books will be available for purchase. Let us know ASAP if you will be attending so we have enough books.
Dr. Robert Rosenthal is the author of
From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit (Hay House, 2012), a fresh new look at the Moses-Pharaoh story as a parable of the spiritual journey back to God. Dr. Rosenthal is also a practicing, board-certified psychiatrist. He was a close friend of Bill Thetford, Ph.D., ‘co-scribe’ of A Course in Miracles, and has served on the board of the Foundation for Inner Peace, publisher of the Course, for over 20 years. His regular monthly talks on Course topics can be accessed through his website:

Welcome to the website for Unity Spiritual Center, in Asbury NJ. Unity celebrates life. We view spiritual growth as an on-going daily practice in knowing our oneness with the power and love of God. The spiritual message we present is a positive approach to life, seeing the good in all people and circumstances. Unity relates our spirituality to daily needs, in a practical, affirming way that for every need there is a perfect answer.

Our Sunday Service is a celebration of the presence of God in our lives. We encourage and support every individual to look within and find his or her connection with the Spirit of God that reveals all wisdom and direction. We give attention to the innate good that exists in you right now, and seek to continually grow, unfold, and evolve into expressing our divine nature. This exhibits itself as a spiritual community that cares about each other’s dreams, hopes, and challenges. We express this as love, acceptance, encouragement, and authenticity. We are a heart-centered community that seeks to inspire and awaken one another to a greater experience of God and life!

Please join us for our Sunday Service at 10:00 am. We have an excellent Youth Education program that begins at the same time. You are also invited to attend any of our classes and workshops. We honor the Spirit of God within you and affirm that the same Spirit is guiding you to your highest good—right now!

Abundant Blessings,

Rev. Terrence Padgett
Transitional Minister


In charting our course through transition – we have been preparing the soil – now we have to figure out what kind of a group; what kind of a future we want to grow into.

Jeremiah 29: 11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
