Unity of Wimberley is known for 12 quilts that adorn its sanctuary walls. They are the first thing most visitors notice -- well, after they see the gorgeous view of the hills from our back porch! One of Unity's primary teachings is that each individual is divine, an expression of God on the earth. Charles Fillmore, the American mystic who founded the Unity spiritual movement in 1889, suggested every human is hard-wired with 12 divine attributes or "powers" that are developed as we understand more deeply the Christ presence within us. To illustrate this idea, teams of congregants in 2005-06 uniquely designed and created quilts reflecting the Twelve Powers. Below is a close-up of each quilt with a description of the divine quality it represents.
