  • How did we come to the name: New Thought Center for Spiritual Living?
    “New Thought” is how people find us on the web or podcasts—people from around the world are finding our community by searching for “New Thought.” It succinctly speaks to who we are. “Center for Spiritual Living” was consistently at the top of potential names—however, another church was using the name Portland Center for Spiritual Living. Now that we are part of the same New Thought family (UCSL) sharing the “Center for Spiritual Living” part of the name not only makes sense, but is highly encouraged. Link to
  • Why did we change our name?
    New Thought Ministries of Oregon was founded as an independent New Thought church. The name was always intended to be a place-holder. Various attempts to change our name were unresolved, so we decided to wait for the “self evident” thing, trusting we would know when it was the right time to take action. The affiliation with United Centers for Spiritual Living brings our community opportunities to reach a wider audience. This is in alignment with the 2012 Vision cast by Dr. Kathy Hearn. Link to
