The Three Faces of God

Program Overview

Sometimes a new spiritual path leads to a lot of confusion about God. Is God out there? In here? And who or what are you praying to? The Three Faces of God can help you sort it out. This idea from mystic Ken Wilber offers a fascinating look at the three primary ways God is understood by world religions and by Unity. Karen Kelly, who discovered the Three Faces in her seminary studies, and Rev. Ellen Debenport, author of The Five Principles, join with their guests for lively discussion about the divine … and how human beings can relate to it. This is a special six-week series that could give you a whole new way to think about God.


The ideas and opinions expressed on this program do not necessarily reflect the teachings of Unity. Unity respects a wide range of spiritual thoughts and beliefs, as reflected in the diverse range of subjects presented on Unity Online Radio.
