Here at the Oneness Center for Spiritual Living Columbia, we always say singing is like praying twice!
Music is an essential part of our Sunday Service and we recognize and value live music as an avenue for Opening Hearts, Inspiring Lives and Celebrating Oneness. Our music program includes regular appearances by local favorites including award-winning singers, songwriters, composers, performing artists and our very own Felicia Taylor.
We showcase an array of very talented in-house singers and musicians who perform individually and as part of our Oneness Choir. Come join us every Sunday for the music in the message and the message in the music!

Amon James has been singing all of his life – most often in church, but sometimes in other venues too. He is a member of the Oneness CSL Choir, and frequently serves as a guest soloist at Unity of Washington, DC and other venues. Amon served as the Minister of Music for the Unity Center of Light in Bowie, Md from 1992-1997. He was also ordained as a minister by the National Spiritual Science Center in 2002. Amon is pleased to be part of the Music Ministry here at Oneness because he believes that songs are prayers/affirmations that gently remind us of the Truth and, are easily shared with others.
MEET SOME OF OUR REGULAR MUSICAL GUESTS
Bob has a gift of creating musical vibrations that can define and recall and heal and inspire those out-of-body moments of everyday life. From a glimpse of a raindrop sparkling in the sunshine when the skies clear after a mid-day storm to dropping onto your knees when the whispers of a grief-stricken heart begin to process…
Bob talks straight to your soul. Not only does he talk, he serenades you through every awareness, every celebration, and every challenge you will encounter. Not once. Not twice. But every time you listen. The music that comes through him will vibrate with your spirit exactly where you are. You will hear exactly what you need to hear in this moment, and the next, and the next.
