Fellowship to consider UU ‘heresies’

On Sunday, October 18, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship  will watch and discuss a DVD of a sermon entitled “Unitarian Universalist Heresies,” delivered by the Rev. Christine Robinson, senior minister of First Unitarian  Church of Albuquerque.

Robinson points out that “Orthodox Christians consider themselves Trinitarians, meaning they believe in a three natured god; they believe in splitting humanity into the saved and the damned.”  

She goes on to explain, “Liberal Christians, not believing in original sin, believe Jesus came to earth to help humans learn to live well.  They see Jesus as an inspired teacher, not a divine savior.” 

Robinson, one of the nation’s preeminent UU preachers, has created a DVD ministry, with a wide-ranging audience, to help small fellowships grow and deepen their religious understanding. 

Last week the children and youth began looking at UU’s Second Principle, which affirms and promotes “Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.” This Sunday we will explore the second part of that Principle, “equity.”  And, as we continue working on our rag rug, we’ll divide the jobs, making each task equal. It may take some work, but hearing the story of two brothers may help. We will also begin making items for our holiday gift baskets.

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.
