Unity One understands that part of worship is service. As a part of the giving back aspect, Unity One wanted to inform participants where some of their donations will be going. For this year, we have decided to donate to the Inspiration Organization.
The Inspiration Organization’s goal is to help in the fight against homelessness. They provide support services, employment services, and housing services to the homeless. One thing Unity One applauds the Inspiration Organization for is their restaurant programs called Inspiration Cafe and The Living Room Cafe provide meals and supportive services in a therapeutic environment.
According to the Inspiration Organization’s website:
“Inspiration Cafe, located in Uptown, and The Living Room Cafe in Woodlawn, serve meals in a restaurant-style setting and provide supportive services in a therapeutic community designed to help individuals on their journey toward self-sufficiency.”
On November 13th, as a part of the worship experience, please come prepared to give to the Inspiration Organization’s Inspiration Cafe and The Living Room Cafe.
You may be wondering, what makes Unity One different from a typical Sunday worship service or other nights of worship you would attend? Well, here’s three reasons:
- Unity One’s focus is cultural diversity and a corporate atmosphere or worship.
- At Unity One, songs in different languages are purposely sung by those who may speak another language as their first language. We want to teach the body of Christ how you worship across linguistic barriers and not just merely tolerate your brother or sister in Christ, but join with them as they sing their songs to God.
- Most nations of antiquity and the world worship God the Father, and most have songs sung in adoration and thanks to the Father. Worshiping together and knowing and hearing our brothers and sisters sing their praises to God is one way to represent unity on the body of Christ. Unity One is not merely a concert, but an worship experience for us to connect to our Maker, to each other, and to the world in the social justice we give back with each event.
- We give the body of Christ an outlet to see, hear, and feel multicultural worship.
- During Unity One, we allow for the participants to be apart of what is happening. We don’t only talk diversity, we actively do it and we bring you in with us.
- We open dialogue and working partnerships for churches to use multi-cultural worship.
- After the concert, you will find resources on how to create diverse partnerships and open your congregation to multicultural worship.
