Easter and Unity

Easter is the defining event in the Christian calendar, but Unity does not teach vicarious atonement (the theology that Jesus died for your sins).  So what does Unity teach about Easter and why?  

Join us in the Metaphysical Group for a deep exploration of the metaphysics of Easter!  As preparation, participants are encouraged to read the Gospel accounts of the Easter experience
