UUs consider ‘Living in an Inter-Faith Community’

On Sunday, Oct. 5, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a talk entitled “Living in an Inter-Faith Community,” presented by Joan Peterson, a resident of Crestone, Colo.

After a career in Washington D.C. as a nurse, Peterson retired to this unique San Luis Valley community, which is home to many out-of-the- mainstream religious faiths and practices.

She will explore how interactions with these various belief systems can affect the lives and actions of those who live there.

Children are naturally curious about how others live. Different cultures and religions have all manner of customs for ritually welcoming babies. The children’s program will hear the story of the birth of Buddha, and learn about other ways of celebrating birth. Then we’ll talk about our own birth or adoption stories.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbrier Drive off of North Pagosa by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
