This fountain welcomes guests to Unity Village in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
The tower is a National Historic Monument.
This iconic 165 foot building houses the Holistic Healing Center.
I was born into a Catholic family. But when I was about 12, mom decided to leave the church and start attending Unity. Dad was not happy when she decided that we (the kids) should also attend. So...one week Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the next was Unity Temple in the Plaza.
This sounds fine...but it was a struggle for me.
One week...hell, Latin masses, confession, and guilt.
The next week was Sunday School and love...
songs and some bible teachings.
Sunday school had kind of a musty smell. Something kids notice...
At the very end of each Sunday school class, we would form a circle and hold hands and sing, "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me...".
The last time I attended, one of the kids threw up~~~
That's something, from childhood, that you don't forget.
Anyway, I didn't like either of them and when I got old enough, I went on my own spiritual search...
And, now I'm a Buddhist.
