Hi Friends —
This is an interview of Rev. Gregory Guice made 8 years ago. He has much more to say about mysticism, the story of his mother and African Americans in New Thought and other topics. We are planning another interview this Spring 2024 in Detroit to learn more. Stay tuned.

Feeling the call to ministry, Gregory Guice was ordained at the Unity School for Religious Studies in Lee’s Summit, Missouri in 2000. Since that time, he has established himself as one of Unity’s outstanding spiritual teachers of Unity principles and beliefs. His goal is to prayerful demonstrate and teach the principles of Truth as taught by Jesus Christ. Before becoming the Senior Minister at Detroit Unity Temple, Rev. Guice served with Reverend. Argentina Glasgow as Co-minister at the Temple. He was hired as Senior Minister at Unity of Lake Orion, and Unity Christ Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He has also had the privilege to serve on the Board Directors at Unity School of Christianity.
Rev. Guice has received many honors over the years. He was recognized as one of the top ten teachers in the United States by Ebony magazine in 1988, and was “Mason of the Year” for the Unity Lodge #28 Prince Hall Masonic Order in 1988 and 2007. Additionally, in 1989, Rev. Guice was listed in “Who’s Who in Black America,” and in 2000 as well as 2003 Rev. Guice was featured in Unity’s Daily Word (A Unity Publication). Rev. Guice was inducted into the Martin Luther King Board of Preachers of Morehouse College, and has received the “Michiganian of the Year” award from the Detroit News in 2008.
Rev. Guice is very focused on community and provides leadership with a positive presence in the areas that he serves. He created a community organization at Detroit Unity Temple that rallied together to fight crime within the neighborhood and he continues to reach out to the neighborhoods within various areas with the “Look for the Good” campaign. Teaching that good is always available, you just have to open your eyes to see “the good.” He has published two insightful and spiritually motivating books, one titled “The Courage to Conquer Fear”, and the other one co-authored with Rev. Dr. Joseph Hill, titled “Spiritual Waters”.
If you have been blessed by Rev. Gregory's message, then why not consider making an offering to his church, Detroit Unity Temple?
