We believe life is sacred. Therefore, we’ve designed our menu with mindfulness given to its impact on life – from how our ingredients are grown to how they will be delivered, prepared and presented. We want the culinary experience we share to somehow leave both the earth and its inhabitants better for our having shared it. Welcome to SoulGreens. We’re glad you’re here.
This statement represents a vision of quality, organic vegetarian cuisine offered in the proud tradition of the Unity movement from UIL’s Friendship Hall! How wonderful will it be to come together over a delicious meal, walk a stunning nature trail, peruse the gift shop and then join in an afternoon meditation on, say, a Tuesday?

Please hold SoulGreens in prayer! We are applying for a grant! We hope to know the results as soon as June. As explained in the informal town hall, SoulGreens will be a vegetarian restaurant. Not only is this model in alignment with Unity’s roots and with UIL’s corporate purposes, it will require less remodeling and cost at least $40,000.00 less than the alternative. Yeah, it’s a big deal! Rev. Nina has 20 years’ experience in the restaurant business and we remain grateful for her guidance through the complexities of government and church finance and human personalities and so much more!

Rev. Nina Clark continues to consult with area professionals and various county agencies. From the Health Department to the Fire Marshal to Building Codes, each operates independently but their requirements are interdependent! Please know that progress is being made, however. Upon finalization of all approvals, we expect construction to require 7-10 days. Do you have construction, plumbing and/or electrical skills to contribute? Please write RevNina@UnityinLynnwood.org. She will happily add your name to the resource list. Requirements may apply. As of the date of this posting, we remain optimistic for a 2022 open of Phase 1!
At present, the initial application (a very long document) was submitted to the county. After many weeks, the county requested several corrections. We are in the process of amending the application to meet their requests. As we understand it, upon final approval of the application, we will be prepared to move forward with purchasing and construction. We expect the construction phase to be minimally impactful.
Thank you for including this vision of community, outreach, stewardship and responsibility in your spiritual practices. We promise to keep you posted.

While we like to pat ourselves on the backs for our most brilliant thoughts, sometimes I think the actual process is really quite opposite: ideas are perfectly formed and fully funded as they exist in Mind and they are simply awaiting souls to capture them and then to enjoy the experience of seeming happenstance that is an idea demonstrating its sufficiency through that receptive vessel! So, while we like to pat ourselves on the backs for our most brilliant thoughts, we would do better to pat ourselves on the backs for our courageous receptivity!
