On Sunday, Nov. 8, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service will consider “The Spirituality of Zimbabwean Music and Culture,” in a presentation by Doug and Laurel Epps.
The Epps are independent filmmakers from Alaska, and are newcomers to Pagosa. They will share their experiences exploring how this Zimbabwean music came to North America 40 years ago, how it is continuing to spread, and why this music is striking a resonance within our souls.
They point out that “People of Zimbabwe are eager to share their cultural richness. They say it is helping to keep their traditions alive during these challenging political and economic times.”
The Epps will feature their Marimba Ensemble as part of the presentation.
The Children’s Religious Exploration (CRE) at Pagosah UU Fellowship is a place where we come together in a multi-aged gathering of children and youth, honoring individuals as we work toward building a beloved community. This week the program will take a closer look at the UU Third Principle: “Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.” We will perform a short play called “A Porcupine Named Fluffy,” and then construct a club house where everyone is welcome and accepted.
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.
