Spiritual Leader: Kathy Harwood Long

Kathy Harwood Long--mother, mentor, minister--brings years of living and learning along with many spiritual insights to Friends of Unity. An ordained Unity minister, she is also the co-founder of Unity Worldwide Ministries EarthCare team. Her emphasis on deep spiritual community has led to increasing mentorship and instruction in meditation and spiritual discernment with Unity communities in the Northwest, Michigan, and Canada. "When I discovered Unity, abstract ideas about spirituality translated into practical application and a way of life. Today we are all poised to translate our spiritual practices into a collective or universal realization that is practical and will author a new way of life on the planet."

Rev. Florence Ernzen

Founding Minister Emeritus: Florence Ernzen

Friends of Unity was founded in 2010 by a group of like-minded seekers under the leadership of Florence "Flossie" Ernzen, ordained Inter-faith – Inter-spiritual minister, long time Licensed Unity Teacher, and Professional Social Worker.

Dedicated to Sacred Service, Rev. Flossie grounded our spiritual community with wise and loving guidance until her retirement in 2017.  We are so grateful to continue to be blessed by her in the role of Minister Emeritus.
