The Power of Imagination
Maryann Hackworth
Sunday, August 1, 2021, 10:30 am

Imagination is the incredibly creative power within us all! It is our spiritual power to visualize, envision, conceptualize and think outside the box. Consider the way that our thoughts are malleable, pliable and changeable. What makes this life so exciting is that we are free to reinvent ourselves…if we exercise our power of imagination!

So rather than clinging to, “the way it’s always been”, or yearning for “the way it was”…let us embrace our imaginative power NOW and create the life of our dreams and visions!

Quotes to consider:

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
-Albert Einstein

“It is through the imagination that the formless takes form.”
-Charles Fillmore

Unity Center of Pittsburgh is a New Thought church in the East End of Pittsburgh. We hold services each Sunday beginning at 10:30 am and offer a variety of opportunities for exploring the sacred within ourselves. (We are pleased to offer both live and virtual services.)


  • Our vision is to see a spiritually awakened world flowing with Divine Love.

Office Personnel Changes:

A Note of Gratitude to Sheri Owen, our Exiting Office Manager and
A Warm Welcome to Mariko Reid, Our New Office Manager

As some members of Unity Center of Pittsburgh already know, our dear friends Sheri and Vicky Owen are preparing to move in 2022, as Spirit is guiding them forth to new creative adventures in the state of Tennessee. Sheri has been an incredible asset to our board of trustees and our leadership team and we are deeply grateful for everything that she has done for us. To say that she has upgraded our
administrative management process is a gross understatement. Her knowledge and expertise in computer technology and website design have been crucial for improving procedures which organize our business, inform our members, and keep our administrative wheels turning.

We are so grateful that Sheri is able to provide support and feedback to our new office manager, Mariko Reid, ensuring that there is a seamless transition of administrative duties. Many in our community are already familiar with Mariko, for she provides beautiful vocals as a singer at our Sunday services. What you may not realize is that she also comes to us with a wealth of experience in office administration and she is excitedly embracing this new role for our spiritual community. Thank you and welcome to Mariko!

To Sheri…it is difficult to summarize into words all of the ways that you have loved and served our Unity community, but I will try to express here what has been felt by all of us at Unity Center of Pittsburgh. No matter what project you engaged in, your kindness and positive energy have had a palpable effect on everyone that you touched through your service. Your honest appraisals and suggestions, brought forth with the spirit of integrity, have been greatly appreciated! Many are born with a bright intellect, but there is a significant difference expressed, when the heart illuminates the mind. Through your loving heart, you create a ripple of joy that projects optimism and enthusiasm into everything that you do. We thank you for all that you are and all that you have done for our Spiritual Center. We affirm unlimited happiness and continued success for you and Vicky in all of
your future endeavors. While we know that eventually the physical miles may separate us, our hearts are forever bonded in spiritual friendship.

With Loving Gratitude,
Maryann Hackworth
Spiritual Director
