The UU role at the UN

On Sunday, Oct. 25, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will have a  program about the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office, presented by local UU board member, Pauline Benetti.  

Benetti points out that “The United Nations (UN) was founded on October 24, l945, following the end of World War II.  Some believe that it was doomed from its inception, others that it is the world’s best hope.”

She further states, “Clearly on the side of hope, the Unitarian Universalist UN Office (UU UNO) uses its position at the UN as a member of the interfaith community to mobilize action in support of programs that fulfill the Sixth Principle of Unitarian Universalism, which covenants to affirm and promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.”

On this 64th anniversary of the UN’s founding,  Benetti will elaborate on the role of the UU UNO at the United Nations and its relationship to our Pagosah Fellowship.

The Children’s Religious Exploration program continues it’s exploration of UU’s Second Principle, affirming and promoting “Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.”  Adding compassion to justice and equity is just what Jesus spoke about in the story of the prodigal son. We’ll hear the story and explore others way of practicing compassion for others.

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.
