Read Rev Ed's Latest Reflections
Welcome to the website for Spirit Expressing, an international spiritual community centered in Vernon, CT, and with a web outreach that extends around the world.
Our purpose is to support and encourage the creative application of universal spiritual principles to the adventures and challenges of this human life experience. We are proud to be affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries.
Under the leadership of founding minister Rev. Ed Townley, we hold bimonthly Gatherings in the comfortable, welcoming Center for Progressive Therapies, located at 192 Hartford Road in Manchester CT to explore and deepen our commitment to Spirit. We also sponsor weeknight discussion groups, and I periodically send out a Reflections message with thoughts about leading a spiritual life in a challenging world. (You can read the current Reflections and browse the archives by clicking Rev Ed’s Reflections on the left.)This website is also a central part of our ministry, offering information, background, creative sharings and more.
We hope you will enjoy exploring the Spirit Expressing website. We invite you to become a part of our spiritual focus by signing up below to receive the Reflections messages, and our periodic newsletters with schedules and information on our Gatherings and classes.
