On Sunday, Sept. 6, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service will view a DVD of “An Inauguration Sermon, “presented by the Rev. Christine Robinson, Minister of the First Unitarian Church of Albuquerque.
This sermon has been sent to the Library of Congress, which put out a call for outstanding sermons and “passionate speeches” from faith-based groups of all kinds, addressing the historical moment of the inauguration of an African American president.
In this presentation she points out that “Unfortunately, racism still lingers in our nation. Fear of the ‘other’ seems hard-wired by evolution deep in every crevice of our being, and we all embody it to one degree or another.”
Rev. Robinson is considered to be one of the preeminent preachers and philosophers in the UU denomination. Two of her original readings are published in the UU hymnbook.
The Children’s Religious Exploration will gather this week in anticipation of the Water Communion service on Sunday, Sept. 20. We will work on the music and costumes for The Great Kapok Tree, by Lynne Cherry. Join us in song for a fun-filled day of music, singing, and mask making.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar 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.
