On Sunday, Dec. 7, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hold a special service around the theme: “A Guest at Your Table.”
At this service, also being observed by many other UU congregations around the country, small collection boxes will be handed out and stories of courageous individuals will be shared as we join others promoting human rights around the world.
Such stories might tell of Serafina, the South African grandmother who partnered with the UUSC and others to restore marginalized people’s access to clean water. Or Amina, who is leading UUSC’s efforts to protect women and girls in Darfur.
These little boxes for your dining room table, symbolizing an unseen guest, are to collect small donations at each meal, which will contribute to the world-wide humanitarian work of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee.
The children will also take part in “A Guest at Your Table,” with hands-on activities to learn more about this special program. As we enter the darkest time of year, we think about the light we can share with others and help in our own small ways.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbrier Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the Fire Station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
